So I’ve had several comments from friends and family about how I’ve about let my blog die. Therefore, this short, quick update is for all of you. 🙂
We’ve been in the States for over a month now, and I knew it would be a hard adjustment. However, I didn’t think that I would be the one who struggled so much with the adjustment. I’ve learned that my husband is quite flexible and easy-going. I knew he was easy-going, but I didn’t know that he was as flexible as he is. I also didn’t know that he is a much better boundary setter than I am. I am much too influenced by those around me; I hate to say no to people. Mark says no easily and for his own good. So Mark is doing well. He has been quite busy too. He’s painted my grandmother’s bedroom, helped my parents move, and has been on quite the house-hunt. He’s determined to find the best house in Longmont for us. You have to give him an A for persistence and determination.
Meanwhile, I really stink at persistence and determination. My endurance and patience levels are about a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being excellent and 0 being very poor. I’ve been crabby more in the last month than I have in the last few years combined. I’m finally catching on to my job (praise the Lord), but it’s been hard to be so busy. I feel like this is the busiest I’ve ever been, and I’ve always been one of those people who’s on the go. I think my time off in the UK taught me to slow down, and now I don’t know how to catch up. So it’s been hard on my side.
And to be honest, when I feel pretty poopy, I don’t really feel like blogging. So I apologize to all of my faithful readers. Maybe when this house search is done and when we get settled, I’ll get back into blogging. Or maybe when I catch up to my life and don’t feel exhausted all the time, I’ll be back. 😉
Last thing, pray, pray, pray for our presidential election!!! I still can’t emphasize the seriousness of this election. If you don’t know who you’re voting for or if you’re not voting, please seriously pray about your options!!
