Ahhh. Together again.

After 6 long lonely weeks, we are reunited and it feels so nice! I thought I was never going to make it through this separation but I survived! I finally have my computer back!!!!!
Shamelessly I admit that I have felt quite lost without my computer. I really felt so out of the loop. Seriously I think that I check my email, blogs, facebook and bank account atleast twice a day. You would think that with all of the time I saved being away from the computer I would have learned how to bake bread or something useful or constructive. Nope just transferred that time to more tv and reading cheesy little 18th century romance novels (although my husband approves of the latter!)
Anyways I am connected again and it is wonderful.
We are adjusting to our new life in Fruita (right outside of Grand Junction). We are all happy but really miss Puerto Rico, especially Jake. Jake is trying to get used to all of the lame white people. I am trying to get used to putting lotion in new places that I had never even knew I could get dry skin! Jett is getting used to speaking English again in school and not being the gringo superstar of the school (although he already has made a ton of friends). Luke is getting used to being home with me again after having been in all day kindergarden and Tommy is just getting used to wearing clothes again. Seriously it is so wierd to see the boys all bundled up, wearing shirts and shoes etc.
Now that I have the computer back I have to back track on tons of pictures to blog etc so more Puerto Rico adventure posts on the way!

I can relate. When we moved, my computer was nearly the last thing to be unplugged and moved out and one of the very first things to be set up (minus the internet for a week or two-which was very challenging!)

I'm sure you felt like your arms were missing or something. So glad your computer is back up and running. Please tell me what books you are reading. I love historical romance, too.

So glad your back...missed reading about your adventures. Funny you mentioned the bread thing. My mom is staying with us this month and teaching me all the stuff I resisted learning as a teanager....including the bread thing...:) I finally decided "resistance is futile" I might as well embrace this whole housewife thing!!!

6 weeks?!? That's amazing! So glad you're back. Hope you are adjusting well to CO. We'll definitely have to talk soon.

I am soooo glad you are closer to us now...maybe we can see you sometime! You guys are the ultimate nomads! Or maybe Jake just got nervous about being the bishop.....NOT!

Glad your computer is back and you'll have to take me on a Puerto Rican excursion, even though you're back in gringo land.
Hope your boys can keep up their spanish-it is such an advantage to have that.
