Holy crap it’s been 3 months since my last blog. It’s not for lack of material…it’s just that…we’ve been super busy! I absolutely underestimated how big of a move this would be for us – and it’s been consuming me for months. I only just now have a house that is livable – and I owe 100% of that to my parents who came to visit for a month so that I could get the house together. It’s getting there though. And everything else is falling into place here on our little island.
Goodbye cardboard!! Although the kids loved playing with the boxes, I am so happy to see them gone. Buh bye.
Pierce started (and finished) his first season of soccer, is doing great in his new school, taking Tae Kwon Do, and most recently is obsessed with rock-n-roll. Top 40 in the car is no longer acceptable. Sorry Miley & Taylor :( Long forgotten is Milo and 100Plus, but he still asks about his friends in Penang and wonders if they’ll be able to come visit. He’s 4 and has international friends, lucky him.
Addison (almost 11 months now) is a happy little thing, always smiling and laughing. She is finally taking a bottle at night, loves to dance and blow kisses, but most of all she loves anything Pierce likes or does. She is oblivious to the move, lucky her.
Justin loves his job and is staying super busy. Traveling a lot. Gets to spend a lot of time in the city, lucky him.
So as for me…things are good here. Really really good. We like it even more than I thought we would, and I am happy with how everything has just kinda fallen into place the last few months. I do miss Penang and feel homesick now and then. But Huntington is great. The people are nice. I’m slowly making friends, and finding my groove. The weather is AMAZING! I’ll be “over it” eventually (or so I’m told) but for now I am loving the cold weather. It has snowed here twice…although I’m pretty sure the locals don’t even count it. But when the flurries came down on Thanksgiving Day the whole family was outside, ready to build a snowman lol! Prior to buying the house I was on a pretty good schedule of working out and was feeling good, but that all went to hell the last 2 months. I plan to get back on track soon and have high hopes of training for some races…but I’m trying not to be too hard on myself. It’ll happen. Mostly, I am just enjoying the time I have with the kids and love that I get to be a stay at home mom. Lucky me.
