When we lived in Alabama we lived so close to all our family that any visits we had were short. A 15-20 visit here or an afternoon there. There wasn't any need for overnight visits. Now that we have moved and family is coming to visit us for 2,3, 4 days at a time it's made me realize how much I love these types of visits more. They mean more, I guess. You don't take them for granted like you would if they lived next door to you or a 10 minute drive across town. I'm getting used to our new lifestyle and finding more things about it that I truly enjoy and I'm glad has happened to us.
Speaking of new things, I joined a playgroup. Shocked? Me too! Our first meet up is this Wednesday. We are going to tour a local fire station and the kids will get a demonstration and get to check out the fire trucks, fire equipment, talk to fire fighters, etc. I know Jon Kent will love it and Zoey will like having other kids to run around with. I'm nervous. As I've stated before, I'm not a social butterfly by any means. But I'm trying. I'm really trying and I want to make new friends, so I'm doing it. No matter how much it terrifies me.
