It Has Been A Little While

Well I haven't updated in a while. I have been busy and been trying to fight off a small bout of the blues. S is in soccer now and that is taking up 2-3 nights a week. He loves his sports and I am proud to watch him do something that he loves so much. I am still trying to get T potty trained but it is not going so well. He was day time potty trained before we left Tucson to come here but since the move has resorted back to diapers. He just has no interest and fights going on the toilet or potty chair. K is a big boy. He weighs in at 30lbs at 16 months. No wonder I have a hard time carrying him around for very long. We have a new male member in our family now. We adopted a 4.5 month old shih tzu. His name is bear. Of course I wanted the small dog and the dog loves The Man. I find it very cute to see the puppy curled up on The Man's lap watching TV. Angel is loving having another dog around as she thinks that all other dogs and people should play with her and pet her all the time. That might be a bit of my fault since I spoil her.

The blues I am having are quite frustrating. While I love being here and don't mind being away from the rest of my family I do miss my friends in the states and being able to shop very cheaply. My grocery budget here has at least doubled as I don't have more than a few options for stores and double/triple coupons are nonexistent. Spring is here and the weather is getting nice so I was hoping for some chances to explore but the money just seems to be a bit tighter. I am still paying off the last two credit cards and those should be done by the end of this year or the beginning of next year and that will free up some money but right now it is hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel so to speak. I am also missing the me time. I feel extremely selfish for wanting me time but I really feel that it has been too long since I got to go out and be myself without all the worries of the house. I would go out alone but I am too nervous to be out by myself for safety sake.

  1. I can relate to living in a new place with no friends/family. When my husband and I moved to Washington State years ago, I didn't know anyone. Joining mom groups really helped me! Now that we're back in Jersey, I find that I am happier because I'm close to family and familiar places. =)
