Welcome to the desert!

We arrived at our new home last week.  It was 101 at 5:30pm.  We were rewarded with an entire week of over 100 degrees and blistering heat.  Good thing they closed the pool already.

This week promises to be cooler.  Only in the 90s.  Good thing because the air conditioner has stopped working in the front of the fifth wheel.  ugh.

I'm still working on having a peaceful heart at being here.  There are some advantages.  The kids are back into their Awana program (although I'm not as pleased with it as I used to be, its a lot smaller now with less leaders), I haven't decided if we're going back to our old church or try a new one, the quilt guild is still here, and I do have friends here.

However, the scenery stinks.  The air stinks.  The heat stinks.  I'm working on it, praying on it.  My hubby needs me to be supportive and understanding, not complaining that I can't see bald eagles anymore, just acres of cotton.  It has gotten better since we've arrived but my biggest thing that I needed for support, the local homeschooling support group, is apparently no longer in existence.  I can't find it anywhere.  I'm sad because that really makes the kids friend base alot smaller.  Usually they have alot of friends of all different backgrounds and ages.  I enjoy having them around a variety of kids and not just "military brats".  (Sometimes the kids can be just as competitive over their parent's rank.......I've certainly met many wives who are).

So, I'm struggling this week to change our addresses, get the kids' activities rolling, and get myself focused.  Tomorrow's my birthday.  Perhaps I can chalk up my lack of focus to old age?  haha

Have a wonderful week everyone!


  1. Happy Birthday!!!!!!!
