Things have been a little quiet around here as I’ve been getting back to basics in our home.
For starters, I’ve started meal planning again to reduce our grocery bill.
(Also? Maggie has decided she wants to be a mechanic someday.)
I am attempting to bike about 10 miles a week – which doesn’t sound like much until you add
about 50 pounds of preschoolers in a trailer. As the weather gets cooler, I hope to increase my mileage!
All the while, I’ve been learning a lot about growing things in the desert.
Funny thing about grass – if you’d like it to be green?
it needs water.
without forgetting often.
Which means any baby green grass at our house a blinking miracle.
So as for this blog? I want to thank you all for your warm and encouraging comments on my last post.
Reading them rekindles the flame that started this blogging journey.
To share my thoughts and experiences about this life so others can know they are not alone.
To share the idea that although challenges come our way, we will keep going.
To be kind and continue to value each other in the midst of stress
That we can’t let bad experiences dictate our future – they are simply opportunities to learn from.
Besides – how else would we learn to ride a bike without training wheels?
Try. Fall. Try again. Fall. Try again. WE DID IT! Fall.
Wait – am I the only one who did that?
I think too, I’ve been so excited to share our PCS journey, that it has made unpacking and reorganizing take much longer than usual. In time I will be sharing my thoughts about moving back to “The States”, buying a house, as well as living in a completely new climate.
So with this in mind, I’ve decided that I will be slowing my blogging pace for the month of October to every few days rather than daily. Feel free to subscribe in your preferred reader or via email so we can keep in touch. Or just stop by and say hi on facebook now and then – I’ll always have coffee on and hopefully some pie on the counter!
How do you keep your family in balance after a move?
How do you keep YOU in balance in the midst of marriage, children, and life?
Let’s encourage each other!
