So it definitely has been awhile since I last wrote ion this blog. I have just been working a lot and getting side tracked all the time. We moved into a new apartment the 1st of December. It's a townhouse and I love it, b/c it forces us to not be in our room all the time. We spent Christmas with Brad's older brother Todd and his family up in Conroe.

For New years we spent the evening with a great family from our ward. We had fireworks, and deer sausage, and Trivial Pursuit:80's Edition. Even though I was born In 86', was was still able to answer a good amount of questions. It helps to have sisters who remember the 80's and also the fact that I love trivia and History.

I have probably mentioned this before, but it felt like my life was spirialing out of control last Friday. I had to come to the realization of being apart from my family. Even Brad's family. I never had to worry about that growing up. My family wasn't big. My Dad's parents and one aunt lived behind us in the ghetto apartment complex and his other sister and my cousins lived 10 minutes away. My mom's mom lived 90 minutes away and we considered that far. Now, my family lives 1800 or more miles away. Brad's family is scattered as well. One brother 2 hours away in Conroe, His mom and Other brother in Corpus, and another brother in Oklahoma. It's a big shock for me to not be able to see them on a daily or weekly basis. It's a part of life that I have to get use to.

Since we moved we don't have cable or internet hookups, so we were using the signals from the college students that lived by us. When they left for Christmas break, we haven't been able to use the internet. It's been kind of refreshing to step back from it. But I will continue to try to update my blog.
