Back in the Saddle, Again


So I gave up on this blog thing long ago. I wasn't even sure that blogger still existed or that i'd find this page when putting in the web address. But here we are. A new friend in Atlanta has been posting daily on a family blog. I've enjoyed reading it and then read an article about how even just a few minutes of journaling a day can help lower stress. When I came to this page, I read things about our life 3 years ago that I didn't remember in the fuzzy haze of parenting, new jobs, interstate moves, and a second child. So I would like to start this again, not as a way to share our life with family far away, but as a way to help document this place and time. I still think that songs as post titles will be fun so I'm going to keep with that.

Carey came home from his training in late August and there's been some adjustment in schedules and coordinationI entered the thesis phase of my Master's program and thus fell down a rabbit hole. The only reason I picked up my computer was for research or writing. I completed and defended my thesis which meant that I didn't touch my computer for almost six weeks. We were traveling 7 out of the 8 weekends around Thanksgiving and Christmas. Sawyer went through a series of really tough colds (including a 4 day fever over 103).I recognized that I was suffering from postpartum depression (and had been for some time).We are starting to recover from all of these things and I am looking forward …
