My mom has been unpacking boxes FOREVER. And she almost had a heart attack when my dad told her a week and a half ago that Comcast couldn't come to our new house for a long time to set up our internet. I was pretty miffed myself. After all, I have a lot of friends I keep up with online. Friends like Addison and Russell and Pudge and Biggs and Moxie and Nella and George and ...you get the picture. I was not a happy gal.
Only guess what??
The Comcast guy came today and Mom ran out the front door and did a happy dance for all the new neighbors to see !!
But she did do one behind the door.
So now that we're back online I have SO much to tell you.
I love my new house. I mean realllly love it.
It's up in the hills instead of looking out over a sheep pasture. I miss my sheep, but guess what I get to see every.single.day?
|this isn't my house. it's just down the street from mine, though. we go on walks all the time now!|
We see them in people's yards, when we're driving to the store, when we go on walks, they come in our backyard late at night and eat our rose bushes.... we see big bucks with antlers, we see mamas with their little fawns, and yesterday my brothers and sister went on a walk with Monique and saw SEVEN deer ! Mama says she misses our sheep, but our deer are sooo much prettier.
And so are the views!!
This was a walk we went on the other day. There are trails all over our neighborhood.
They lead to the sweetest places - waterfalls and brooks and bridges
and secret forts and forests and lookout spots.
You don't know what a lookout spot is? My brothers found one. They MADE my mom go back with them to see it. They told her she had to close her eyes til she got to the top.
My mom had a really hard time when we first moved here. She missed our old house so much. She says it's because we had so many memories there. I heard her crying one night, telling my dad she felt like someone died. That's how sentimental my mom is!
But guess what? She says she's starting to be friends with our new house. She said she keeps getting little glimpses of beauty in unexpected places that make her feel like everything is going to be alright.
|our sunroom- my mom's favorite spot!|
And meanwhile, I'm just making myself right at home.
My dad told my mom that the more memories we make here- family meals, and game nights, and playing in our backyard, and gardening, and spending holidays here...
...it will start to feel like home.
And now I have to go on a walk with my mom, but before I do, I have one more thing I have to tell you about.
Mama says that there is something else that's going to make it feel like a new home- a new little niece for me to play with !!!!
I hope you can help my big brother and his wife bring her HOME!
