I think this might help

I totally forgot about this whole blog thing.  Ok wait that isn't entirely true, I got busy with other things.  Things like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, kids, work (keeping a baby), Jeff, well mom things.  After living here for 4 years I still feel a bit discombobulated.  So, what did I do to make it better... we moved.  Yes, we moved... but we moved closer to Jeff's work.  In an effort to save on gas, tolls, and time, we moved from the house we had built when we moved here into a rental home.  We will see what happens in a year or so.  For now we are living closer to Jeff's job, church and life.  We loved our home and if we had been able to pick it up and move it closer we would have.   For now it has been nice that Jeff can hang a bit longer in the morning and we can enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning before the kids get up.  It has been nice that he calls me from work to say he is coming home and we see him in 30-45 min instead of 1.5 to 1.75 hours.  The house is not as big and is one story.  What we have discovered is that it is nice to see each other again.  With all the kids upstairs and us down, we learned that we didn't see each other much.  This set up is better and allows us access to each other and that feels nice.  I am hoping we will get boxes unpacked before school starts and get everything settled.  It is going to be an interesting year for sure and I am excited to see what it will hold for us.
