Adjusting to 'Country' Living

Well I am back. It feels so good to have my computer back. Getting our Internet connection going was a process and a half. Our ISP has been here 4times so far and is scheduled to return tomorrow. I have access, but it is SO slow, I can't open anything too big. Thankfully, I can get into my blog and your blogs.

I felt like I was away forever. I thought I would have tons to read up on, but it isn't as much as I thought. So I should be back in the swing of things soon.

The move went well, it was hard. Thank goodness I was organized. I don't ever want to move again. I cried when we left the condo for good all the way to this house, about a half hours drive. Our first night here Jim said "I wanna go home" that was sad. But I am ok now not so sad. I feel so far away from everything. I am not that much farther from family and friends. But I feel sooooo alone. I am glad Emily came to school here last yr so I was able to make friends.

My house is still in boxes but coming along. My bedroom and bathrooms feel more like me now. The kitchen makes me crazy. I hate the cabinets and I can't decide where to put things. Hopefully I can do something in there to make it feel more me.

I like the quiet, but it is so dark here at night. The bugs are in abundance, and I hate bugs. I see animals everyday, I enjoy that. The deer are fun to watch. We have chipmunks living in our stone walls, I saw one with his cheeks full of nuts or whatever he was gathering. I heard howling the first night I was here, that was a bit weird definitely not dogs. My neighbor said they had a bear in their backyard not to long ago. So I am definitely in the 'country'.

The closing went smoothly and we've been here almost three weeks I can't believe it. Emily has adjusted fine. I can't wait to be box free (K I got plenty for you if you want) Pictures to come later........

I'm looking forward to 'seeing' your new country home!
I imagine it would take a little while to get used to the quiet ~ but it must be nice to see lots of wildlife from your window!
Hope you get all your unpacking done soon:)

Ooh I'm jealous...QUIET nights, animals...all I get is loud thumping car stereos, punks shouting after 9pm, nothing but squirrels and skunks, and drunk neighbors shooting off guns (don't ask) LOL.
