Settling in

Poo.  The kids have gone home and taken their puppies with them.  But we had a great weekend.  No hustle and bustle trying to entertain everyone or showing them the city, just relaxing and chilling at home.  It felt longer than a couple weeks since I've seen them, so I can only imagine what the next few weeks will be like.  I'm planning to be back in Midland around the first of next month for Addison's birthday, but I'm sure with each visit this will get easier and feel more normal.

As much as I'm missing though - my family, my friends, and my job - I really love living here.  Tulsa is an easy city to get around, it's easy on the eyes, and the people have been friendly.

Okay, there was that one woman who came by and somewhere in the conversation said "good luck keeping up the landscaping the way the previous owners did."  Oh okay.  I guess I was exuding the lazy-white-trash-look that day.

And I'll be on yard duty this morning, meaning I'll be standing outside MY house around the time the school bus kids starting walking right up by my kitchen windows.  Maybe I should be taking pictures - I'm thinking something will get their attention eventually.

I love that you are doing yard duty like we had to parent pick up or lunch duty! You are still doing duties huh? I am still in the same city but I still feel like I have lost everyone that I was close to by moving to another school. I still have my family so mine does not compare but it is so weird to be somewhere with no one, and knowing that everyone is going on about their life. Get a stun gun or use a water hose...kidding... :)

Brooks - I'm pretty sure a few of them hate me now and will get there parents to hate me, too. But we're used to that huh? hahaha.
