Usually I reserve posting for when I have something to say, but today it’s about getting over the hump and back in the habit. I recently wrote in Zoe’s journal for the first time since July 2008. I plan to make up the difference (in a multi-media scrapbook of some sort) with pictures and posts from other places, so it’s important to keep up somewhere.

We’re down to two pets. Jenna took Sarge with her Monday, and he will be living in Lubbock. It’s certainly quieter around here. We’ll miss him; Zoe has already been asking where he is. But he’ll get more attention and exercise, which he sorely needs, and there is a puppy and a toddler where he’s going. Maybe he can take the puppy under his wing and be an alpha dog for once instead of living in Chief’s shadow. From the Mama side of it, I’m very appreciative. Thank you, Jenna!

We signed a lease at an apartment closer to school, for less money per month. We can hardly wait to move in! Seven more weeks. In the mean time, we’re looking for the things we want to take there and getting rid of the rest. Life is too short to haul around junk you don’t need or want.

I’m very much looking forward to a simpler, down-sized life. I’m here to go to school, and last semester I clearly got too distracted. I want my head in the right place, with a routine that works for us and minimal stress. I must learn how to focus. Om. Kumbaya.

I tried out some recipes this weekend that I plan to post. Beef (or turkey) and broccoli burritos, for one. For now, Zoe and I are going to work on shredding the 35 pounds of paper that have accumulated in our family paranoia pile.
