still here

Well, I'm still here...but we don't have internet at home, so I have to squeeze some computer time in at the library.

I am also going to change my blog a little. I've gotten some really strange comments on my blog and I'm seriously considering changing to invitation only. So here's what I need from my readers: let me know if you think that's a good idea and let me know if you want an invitation to read my blog. I'll wait a few days since I know that most of you are busy moms yourselves.

Just so you know, we're still having fun out here in this dry, New Mexico land. People are really nice and the weather is great!

I really hope to get a few pictures on here soon. How many of you have seen White Sands? It's fabulous really.

Until next time...

Hello New Mexico

I really wish I could put some pictures on here of all we have seen since we've been here. But we don't have internet yet, and I'm borrowing a computer at a friend's house. I have some pictures online, but I don't know how to get them over here without downloading to our friend's computer. Oh well, I'm sure I'll get some on here soon.

We're all really enjoying this new location. It's very dry compared to east TN. That was soooo humid! My clothes actually get dry on the clothesline here! lol

The mountains are beautiful. Also so different from the Smokies, but still they have their own beauty.

We've been to White Sands. The kids had a blast there playing in the hills of sand. They were able to borrow some sleds and sled down the hills. It's just like snow; only not cold!

The town is small enough to not get lost (too much), but large enough to meet most of our needs. We will have to travel out of town for buying in bulk like at Sam's Club or Costcos. But the Wal-Mart Supercenter is here and also a small grocery store. We've been shopping there (the grocery store) more because the produce is cheaper and they make fresh tortillas! Last week they were giving out samples. Yum! There's nothing like a warm, fresh tortilla.

So overall, we're having a good time. I'm not going to say we are living a dream; we have our problems. But I am determined to only put the positive on here. Except for the rattlesnakes...and scorpions. But those are just a fact of life around here. So ignore that part. :)

Until next time...
