El Paso

I haven't blogged here in such a long time! Soap took over my life and then the Army really messed us up. Some day i'll share all of that, but for now i'll start from here. A U-haul truck speeding through El Paso, over the Texas border into New Mexico. We'll be in Havasu tonight or tomorrow, ready to start our new life as civilians. Crazy where a year can unexpectedly take you!

I successfully ignored what I'd miss in Texas. Family and friends. I don't thing I'd have survived without our neighbors Scotland Tasha. Oddly (though typical for Army life) we only met them in September. They helped us so much without expecting anything ... can't thank them enough! We also for very lucky that friends could move into our house. It's nice that I can be confident that my home is in good hands. But, that brings up my biggest worry: who will I do a Twilight marathon with when Breaking Dawn comes out???

We would have had a much tougher time the past six years if we hadn't been so close to my in-laws ... already missing them. One of our nieces was there when we left and she wanted to come with. Too bad we can't bring everyone.

Anyways, we're almost out of Texas. Not our favorite place but we started our life here; became parents here. I'll do my best to only keep with me the good memories.
