I am not sleeping well with all the apartment noises (yes, we have white noise going and humidifiers and I wear earplugs...it's just my sleep freak ways on overdrive.)
It took me a long time to sleep well when I moved to Nashville too...it's just part of my adjustment. Which I will get to do again around roughly March 12 when we close on our new home. It will take a few more days to get moved in too...so more like the weekend after March 12th...hopefully.
I am really looking forward to sleeping in my own bed again (the apartment is furnished with 2 queen sized beds).
I guess I am realizing as I type this blog...it is all about my sleep...or lack thereof. So maybe instead of blogging I shall go and rest my weary head...upon my squeaky apartment bed in a room with my restless 2 yr old who is cozied up in a too small pack n play across the hall from my darling husband and my sweet 4yr old boy who have the privilege of using the diffuser (#essentialoilsrockmysocks) in their room. (why oh why have I not bought a second diffuser yet?! sigh...)
Yup. I need a paper chain.

And there were kids on bikes.
Biking home from school.
Judah was watching from the back seat and all of a sudden I heard him say "they are riding their bikes...alone. There's no one with them, mommy." with awe in his voice.
For me, that was the moment I got excited to move to Mesa.
I spent hours upon hours as a kid, riding my bike through our neighborhood with friends. I want that for my boys when they are old enough to ride their bikes around like that.
This is not a reflection of what I didn't like about where I was living, I loved where I lived. We had friends in walking distance and neighbors we loved and it was wonderful. Just very different. Not a bad different, just a different different.

....I was about to pick the phone up and call my sister to tell her we were moving away from Nashville to Arizona and I checked my email first, only to find a letter from her saying she was moving to Nashville from Georgia the same time I was moving away.
that time when...
....my sister moved to Nashville on my birthday, exactly a month before we close on our house and move away.
I guess the winds of change are blowing! it's too bad they are blowing us away from each other, but I am glad to have her here in Nashville so we can come back and visit often :)
