We moved a few months ago back to my home town. I'm not sure how we ended up here, but so far it's worked out pretty well for us! We l.o.v.e. our new house (we bought) and we're having lots of fun (( slowly)) doing fun things and projects in it.
Growing up I couldn't wait to get out of here. And for the first couple months I didn't like being back very much at all. Driving through town would nearly bring me to tears thinking about all the good and a few bad memories that happened here. I had to make a decision to make new memories with my new family, which are almost always happy, and it's worked! I can't say that I love living in this town again, but I do like it.
I'd forgotten how quiet it is here. For about a month it was too quiet for me. Then last month I heard sirens and it took a few seconds to connect what that was in my brain! Seriously! It'd been so long since I heard any. When we lived in Arlington, sirens were like the background music track to my ever day life.
We do miss city living though. It was so nice being within an arms reach of every store we could possibly need. And we miss our friends and our ward. We had a really great ward. Our new one is sure growing on us, but it's been a rough transition. Abby is liking nursery again (woo!), Paul is teaching the 12-13 yr olds Sunday School, and I teach the in the YW's (Beehives).
Hopefully this week I will complete a couple more projects and then I'll post pictures of the new house.
That's all for now. I'll be back soon!
