So we're here. In Mishawaka, Indiana. We've been here for almost two weeks. And I've really missed you guys. Sorry it took so long, but moving is hard. I almost think it's harder when you're moving into an already furnished place. Silly me thought it would be easier.
My shop/craft room/office is still in need of some massive organization. I cannot wait to have it all settled. I have more room here to work and I am thrilled.
But I'm back to blogging. And wanted to share a few things that we've been up to these past couple of weeks.
We bought a puppy.
Her name is Brooklyn (we called her BK). We actually wanted a boy, but fell in love with her. I die daily over her cuteness. And I am not even kidding when I say this was the first thing we did. We took the car back, went to breakfast, then bought a puppy. Priorities you guys.
We planted a garden.
The jury is still out on whether or not either of us has a green thumb, but I'm really excited. We learned all kinds of things. Like how to use a tiller, how to kill ants, and what to do when something is eating your lettuce. We'll have vegetables in a couple of months (at least that's what the tags say). I was also reminded that I don't live in NYC anymore and the sun is a bitch.
Mr. T's family came for a visit and we saw my nephew graduate the sixth grade.
This is one of the best parts. Mr. T's family was able to come for a weekend. We spent time with them and showed them around and it wasn't nearly as hard to say goodbye to them since we'll see them in a few weeks. And seeing my nephew all grown up in his graduation was awesome. He was so excited and even wore a bow tie like Mr. T.
We discovered the farmer's market.
It is the most amazing place. It's HUGE. There's all kinds of things there. We bought coffee and a spice rub. And apple butter. And salsa. And the tastiest lettuce ever. I am really looking forward to having it nearby so we can visit every couple of weeks.
We got a Lowe's card.
To me, that's the epitome of grown-upness.
So it's so far so good here (so far). I've tried to calm my overwhelming moments and we're getting back on schedule which is really nice. I haven't even hid under the covers once. Though I do expect that will happen plenty of times.
It feels good to be back. Good to be around or families. And good lord it's so nice to have a car to buy things. Groceries were like a summer breeze. And the prices of things. Seriously you guys. We went out for a dinner and only paid $50. That was for appetizers, main dishes, drinks, and dessert.
