I'm doin' just fine Getting along very well...

I know I have been slacking on the ol' blog, and I know that I owe you a few posts. I'm working on it.
But life has been a little hectic lately.

I finally left Moses Lake.

Yep, I did it. and it actually went pretty smoothly. I guess you might say it was meant to be.

Although Q may disagree. Every day she says she "wants to go home", and when I respond that this is her new home, she then says she wants to go to "mommy's home".  I'm hoping this goes away soon. Somewhere between Moses Lake and Orem I lost my even tempered, pretty chill little girl, and picked up her emotional, bad behaving, out of control clone.  I'm hoping this means that I get to skip that stage in her teens, but I highly doubt it.  Things seem to be better if we get out during the day, so I have tried to space out errands and such so that we aren't stuck at home all day.

Speaking of home, I am loving our set up right now. To avoid the stress of finding a place to live in a weekend, and helping me get down here, my awesome cousin Kelsey (and her equally awesome husband Jon) offered up their condo in south Orem for the summer (while they tried their hand at sales). It has been awesome. I put most of our stuff in storage, and just have to get up the energy and motivation to unpack our clothes at some point.  Their condo is the perfect size, and perfect location, and Q is excited every time she sees kids right outside her door.

With the new move, I decided to move Q up to a big girl bed. It just kind of made sense. She's doing okay with it, still wakes up a couple times at night, but is easily soothed back to sleep. So far, I have had no creepy experiences of waking up with her standing by my bed...even the thought gives me shivers.

Work wise, I have another awesome set up. I mean seriously, things just worked out so perfectly. With a new electronic system update at the office, came the opportunity for me to continue to do my medical billing job, for david's office, from home, remotely. Yep, I am able to be a stay at home mom, and a working woman all at the same time. It's great. I work in the mornings while Q is watching a couple shows, we hang out all day, I work when she naps, we hang out more, and then she heads to bed and I work until about midnight. It's a full day of being a mom and an employee but it's working good so far, and I can't tell you how nice it is to be able to take care of your own child (plus, the money I save on daycare). I'm excited for all the adventures and memories we are gonna make together.

I'm glad you made it.

Q's wanting to go home is kind of sad. Good thing they adapt.

Good luck as you both adapt. I'm excited for your possibilities.

I've had way too many creepy moments of Elsie standing right next to my face and me waking up to her breathing!
