Holy Smokes!

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 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. 

Ugh, this post is poorly written and all over the place! I'm sorry! My mind just has a thousand things running through it right now. Also, I'm sorry I haven't been commenting! We haven't had the internet until yesterday! 


  1. Moving is so stressful, but that's great about your DH's job!! And I love that you got a cavalier!!!!!!!! I felt bad about getting ours from a breeder too, but I researched rescue cavs and there aren't many--there are very few in shelters and humane societies and only a few organizations in the nation that are dedicated to cav rescue. You need to post a pic!! Don't you just love the cav personality? I joke that Maddie is codependent b/c she snuggles so much and just always wants to be by me...but I love it!! Despite her shedding, I don't think I can ever own another breed ever again!! How old is your pup?

  2. I'm glad your hubby got a great new job! I'm from a small town too, so when I moved out to the big city, I was so scared, but after a month or two, it was nothing! Good luck! :)

  3. Congrats on the move and the new dog! :-) Pets are simply WONDERFUL!!!
    I hate change too ... especially big city change ... but I hope you'll soon love (or at least somewhat like) your new city. You've had a lot going on! Wow!

  4. Yay for the new puppy!!!!! I too felt bad about getting our Golden from a breeder... but it is ok! Post a picture!!!
