Today was more unpacking. I got up this morning and enjoyed a cup of coffee on the back deck. Wishing it was Starbucks!I sat and listened to the peepers going to town. Realized that in CT it would be cool. How thankful I am for the extended warmth! Can I just say the view is beautiful here.
The kids weren’t to bad today. Found out Blake cant start school till they ppt him in. Fantastic. We are still working on Nate getting started. Seeming he needs services and their classes are full. So This maybe a fight. We shall see what Tuesday brings.
Today there was a knock on my door. I think it is the ac guy. We are awaiting that to be repaired. So by night fall it is 100 degrees in our house. Tonight 98 that’s with fans going. Anyways back to the story..
I hear Hi Mama. I look at him. He hands a paper in Spanish over. I ask what this says. I don’t speak Spanish. He points to his truck. I look a mower in the back. Do you do lawn service? I ask. He nods yes. He points to my law that is about 3 inches to tall and says mama again. I laugh and tell him Friday the mower will be here no thank you. He points again shakes his head yes. I point shake my head no… He leaves disgusted. Dude didn’t speak English. He told me his price in pesos! How do I convert that. Never laughed so hard in my life at the transaction that transpired on my door step.
SSI called with fantastic news of an increase. So excited about that. Makes me happy. I finally have a sense of home and being happy. The stress is breaking. I am sure there is more stresses to come but I will take the break happily. This week I am looking for a church. Our family needs that. I need that. I need the stability the routine again. I need the feeling of happiness that comes from church. I figure a great way to meet new people in the area.
My new found favorite is sweet and spicy salsa! I like it on blue chips and it makes a bad day great. Go try some… Off to do some more unpacking…
