I Heart Stay at Home Moms (and Dads)

It's true. After working full time for most of my teen and adult life, I have been a SAHM for the past six weeks. What a wild and woolly ride this has been - it is so much more and so much more intense then I ever would have guessed. In our transition from the rez to Auburn to who knows where, the tall one started back with his massage gig and I became the SAHM. When I worked full time outside the house my day was so regimented and segmented. It has been a wonderful change to just flow through the day. Next up...O's first hair cut.

Did I ever tell you that I finished a half marathon. I trained with O on my back or in the stroller with two friends from Fort and about 20 other people in a program offered from our hospital's wellness center. It is called the "Get Fit Challenge". It was great fun to train with such an inspiring group of folks - of all ages! In October of 2009 I completed the Duke City Half Marathon. Yeah! I am the one with the pink coat over my bum.

I Know, I Know

I honestly can't believe that it has been almost 2 months since I have posted - that must mean there is nothing new going on...hah! Not in my little corner of the world. Tonight finds me at my MB's house, listening to the frogs croak away and finishing up an icy cold G&T. YUM!

The past 2 months have been a complete and utter whirlwind of activity. We started off the month of March by deciding that our time in Fort Defiance was done and it was time to move on. We started to pack up the house and we officially hit the road on April 2nd. We meandered our way up to the Pacific Northwest in 5 days and about 1700 miles. We stopped at any hotspring we could find along the way and I spent my birthday in a "hotpot" in the middle of Utah. It was fantastic. Staying at MB's has been restful and seeing the interactions between O and the family just melts my heart.
