Remember when...?

Remember that time we moved to Colorado?

We've been here 14 days.  When I say "here" I mean in the state of Colorado.  We've been gallivanting around getting to know our new area.  One night here, a couple of nights there.  It's been so much fun!  This state is beautiful.  It looks just like it does on TV.

Mom came and stayed the first few days with us to help get us settled.  My kitchen is always set up just like Mom's.  Not because I particularly want it that way, but because Mom has always come in and unpacked and settled the kitchen.  Then I just leave it because yes, that works for me.

Honey was off a week while we were moving out of our TX house.  Then he worked the last week of his old job.  Then he was off the first week we lived in CO.  Then the first week of his new job ended with two days off for the 4th of July holiday.  So, honestly, I don't feel like we live here. 

The views, the trees, the fishing excursions, the shops, the unfamiliar grocery stores...I feel like we're on vacation...or at camp.  Except the showers are warm, and most nights we are sleeping in our own beds.

Actually, Bubba is at camp.  We dropped him off at CBH yesterday.  Honey went to work again today, and he's planning on working for several regular weeks...in a row.  The girls have some library books due this week, and some bills came in the mail this weekend.  I've got to find the boxes labeled "office" and figure out how to pay some money to some people.  It's fixin' to get real up in here, y'all.

We live here now.

Your life sounds SO parallel to mine! So funny.

That is exactly how I feel every time I move! It goes from "this is like vacation!" to "oh, crud, I have to figure out how to do life here" in such a hurry.
