My life has been absolutely nuts since I last posted!
Boomz got a new job 53 miles away, so we had to find an apartment and move to a new city. Right after he accepted the new job, he got two other offers from different companies, and an interview at another one! The interview was like ten minutes from my hometown and all of my family, so I was really hoping he'd get that one, but alas, it was not to be. So these last few days we've been packing, unpacking, settling in, and....adopting a dog! :) We bought a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy and named him Mr. Ca.rson after the butler on Down.town Abbe.y. He's a huge snuggler and I'm pretty much in love. I don't think Boomz is quite sold on him yet. ;) I feel like such a jerk, though, because I bought from a breeder when there are so many dogs in shelters. Don't kill me, TCIE! lol I looked online at the shelters near our new cities and most wouldn't be allowed in our apartment complex.
I HATE change, so all of this has been a struggle for me. I'm a small town girl (my hometown is technically a village), so living in a place that has bus stops and interstates everywhere is very strange and scary. I'm afraid I'll never find my way around. I'm also a stay-at-home wife again, since I can't babysit my darling little boy or keep my elderly friend company anymore. I know that the little boy will be well taken care of, but I worry about my elderly friend. She'll be so lonely! :( I'll have to find a job around here eventually, but while we're getting settled in I'll be staying at home.
Our first night in our new city, we were invited to dinner at a friend's house. There were two couples there we knew from college, and another couple we've never met before. They live in a town near us and when I met them my IF radar was going off. lol They've been married over a year and a half and don't have a baby. I know by normal standards that's nothing, but in our "circle" that's very unusual. I hope we get to know them better so we can have some young Catholic friends! Our first parish was filled with old people and big families. I think we were the only childless couple.
