This was taken outside my parents home yesterday morning around 7:45. We were getting ready to walk the kids to school when this hot air balloon caught my attention. The mornings here are cool...perfect hot air balloon weather.
As I type I am finally hooked up to the Internet on my own trusty computer. Actually it's not that trusty, but it has everything on it that I use in my day to day life so I am glad that it is up and running again.
We are establishing some routine. Which I am enjoying. Next week will be another week of "newness" as The Mister starts work. It has been nice to have him around although this new schedule makes the day go quickly. The kids get out of school here almost two hours earlier than in NC. but they also start earlier too. This is good for a couple reasons: 1. I am an early person and enjoy getting up and out early. and 2. It allows for school to be over before the heat of the afternoon gets too intense.
I feel a bit out of touch with the rest of the world. I haven't watched or read the news. I haven't really had the chance to write/call or update anyone and to make matters worse the time change just made calling to the east coast a little trickier! This is why I like order in a day! Then I know when I can make time for phone calls and important things! Routine is great! It's establishing routine that's hard work!
Change is tough, even when it's good change and I am trying to get the kids and The Mister settled and established into some semblance of order...then I will be back to normal (whatever that is)...until I move outta here and into our own home. Of course, we aren't sure when that will be.
Living in a household with 4 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs is going well. It's very, very busy here. But we all seem to be handling it well. Someone out there is praying. Keep it up. It's all good, but honestly we have some serious issues...Today we ran out of Orange Juice...and we are a house divided, half of us like pulp, the other half think we should just eat the orange if we like that much pulp. And then there is the issue with laundry...why is there always so much dang laundry....oh wait...never mind, I brought that issue with me. Seems to follow me every where I go.
We also had a horrible problem with dog hair. It seems that Australian Shepherds shed more when the temperatures in March are over 85. Who knew a dog could shed so much? Especially one from Australia. Isn't it supposed to be hot there? Today Kona went to the Doggy Salon and requested a hair cut just like Austin's. I will tell you that Austin wears it better but Kona is pretty cute...pictures to come.
Anyway, things on the home front are going well.
Oh! I haven't done a Random Question for March. So here it goes:
Have you ever been for a ride in a hot air balloon? When and where?
If not, would you if you ever got the chance?
