So, we’ve been here in California for several weeks now, but things have been so crazy that this is the first time I’ve even given thought to posting.
Firstly, the trip. We almost got stuck in West Virginia because of the snow. Need I say more? Other than that, the trip was fine. I drove the ENTIRE way. The one very sad note- we couldn’t stop and see Hannah and Brian. I’m still pouty about it.
I started my job. It’s good. At least it’s more engaging and challenging than my last. I like the offices. I like the people I work with. They like that I can occasionally use my brain.
John has a job. Actually, we are working for the same company. He starts work tomorrow. I’m very excited to be able to see him during the day.
Cole has been in daycare for almost two weeks and I already need to find someone else. I’m very unhappy about where he is. I’ll just leave it at that for now…
Cole has been changing so fast. He now uses consonants in his babbling. He says mama (it’s only accidental, but I count it anyway). He can almost sit up unassisted. He’s not yet seeming motivated at all to roll over, which is okay with me because I can still leave him on the bed for a few minutes (while I’m still in the room) and not worry that he’ll roll off.
We’ve also started giving him “solid” food. I know it’s early, but he loves it and he eats REALLY well. He’s had rice cereal, apple sauce, yams and the tiniest taste of yogurt (really tiny!). He loves it ALL. I do not love the diapers, but daycare usually takes care of that so HA!
We’re living with my parents- not ideal, but they get lots of time with Cole and we get to save up money. We’d like to go right into buying a house instead of throwing money away by renting, but “entry-level” houses up here start at about $350,000 right now- a little out of our range. We’re devising a plan.
There are lots of other little issues, but I’ll save them for later. I may not be posting as often due to dial-up only at home and monitored internet usage at work. We’ll see how it goes.
(I hope I didn’t lose everyone due to my absence.)
