Stating the Obvious

Apparently, if you don't update--your blog goes stale and stagnant. Your link kind of dies. There is most likely another blog that I posted earlier about this, seeing it's not the first time I've taken a LONG break with my blog.

I've been thinking a lot lately on how I started this blog to keep family and friends up to date on the family. But now the older kids can both call and text people whenever and have their own Facebook---so they are old enough to keep in contact now. And most people are also on Facebook---so my status updates keep you up-to-date.

What I am feeling I am needing from blogging is a place to go shout and scream and blow off some steam.

3 Years!

I did make it three years some place. In my entire life, I had never lived a place up to three years before. When I hit the three years here, I expected to have the moving itch everyone talks about, but I felt no itch. I even told Cullen NOT to apply for a job opening he had in Italy. Two more months pass and I started having the itch, I was even mad at myself for telling Cullen not to apply to the job in Italy. I was thinking about all the awesome opportunities I had living overseas and being able to offer something similar to my kids. I am okay staying here. I really want to make it through nursing school, so I am here for at least another 2-3 years regardless.
