This past Tuesday, TJ got word that he was going to be making a quick trip up to Washington for work. He would leave Wednesday morning with Malaya in tow. I wanted to take the whole family but I had Chemistry on wednesday afternoon and a quiz. They left and then I got the call that my class had been cancelled for the day. I was pretty bummed given the fact that we could have all gone to Washington and saw our family. Last night I sat at home and cried, TJ & Malaya were getting ready to go to dinner with my parents and I was sitting here in Arizona with nothing to do but clean up poop from my lovely 2 yr old. I wanted nothing more than to be there with them going to dinner and catching up. The reality that we live so far away hit me pretty hard last night. It's not easy but it has to be done.

Oh my grossness

When your 2 year old walks up to you with no diaper on and saying "poo poo' you just know it's never going to be a good thing. My lovely Carter, I love you but you are GROSS!!! Leave the diaper on before you come to me with poo poo on your hands, your legs, your feet and all over the carpet. Thanks.

It's Been a While

Wow, I can't believe it's been so long since I have updated my blog! I've been out of it. Anyhow, we are all settled here in Arizona. It's been so crazy. For the first 7 months I felt like I was just on a very LONG vacation. When Christmas came around and we had our first holiday here, that's when it hit that we live here. We can't just drive over to mom's for christmas, I missed cookie exchanges and holiday parties. It was rough for me. But we made it through and here we are with another summer coming upon us. The kids are doing fabulous in school, I couldn't ask for better. However, schools here are very different than they are in Washington. Not necessarily in a bad way, just different.

TJ's work is going great, he has never worked so much in his life. He will probably tell you though that being in charge is not always what it cracks up to be. It's more like babysitting than anything. He does more paperwork and moderation of employees than actually working himself. But he enjoys it and we are happy so that's all that matters.

I am going to school FT and it's going really well. I enjoy most of my classes and the challenge of learning again. Won't be too long before I get my degree and am working as a nurse.

That's about all that is new with us, same ole same ole.....have a fabulous day!
