Highlights and Lowlights

No, this post is not going to be about my hair. Although, now that I think about it I do really need a haircut. I've been thinking about trying out bangs. I mean it has been 20+ years since I had bangs. Wow. I just made myself feel really old.

So just like with anything, moving to San Antonio has brought about many changes for our family. Mainly, Stuart is now working and I am not (well, I am not working outside of the home. Being a SAHM is very much a  j-o-b and I will be the first to applaud women who do this). But the biggest change has been moving into my parent's house. While this transition has had it's ups and downs, I think we can all agree that it is great to be around family and have them here to help (and vice versa) while Stuart is adjusting to being gone so much and while we try to find a new normal.


  • Traffic. Lord have mercy the traffic is crazy here! Repeat after me: I will not drive on De Zevala between 11 am and 8 pm. Yeah, it's that bad.
  • Trying to remember what all we forgot back at our house and making do till we can get it.
  • Coming home to find that I had not locked Scout's kennel and she thus attempted to get out of the room she was locked in by burrowing thru the carpet. Ugh.
  • Not having a dumpster behind my house. I know. It's petty but gosh it was handy to get rid of smelly trash fast.
  • Chick-fil-A
  • Taco Cabana
  • The zoo
  • Friends that I have had for 20 years that have kiddos my kiddo's ages
  • Having my parents around to help (and not just with babysitting although that does rock)
  • Starting to organize some of my mom's cabinets
  • Selling my dad's car
  • Realizing that Stuart has an actual job where he's going to make actual money :)
