Movin' On Up

All right, here we go. Catch-up time. I take it for granted that everyone I know is on facebook (which isn't actually the case), so I haven't been doing really well at posting pictures of Isaac or letting people know what's going on with our little family on the blog. But even if you ARE on facebook and see the pictures I post there, you don't always get my detailed thoughts. So lucky you, everyone who may still read this blog! Pictures AND Megan's thoughts!

Anyway, here's what's up in the world of Megan and her fam: we've moved! Out of Provo! I never thought I would live to see the day! After eleven years, I've finally gotten out of Utah County. So I type this from the thriving metropolis of Roosevelt, Utah. (maybe "thriving metropolis" requires a sarcasm hashtag.) (if i were into hashtags.)

Glen got a job with the DCFS on a foster care team, so we came out here last week (with the help of my folks - many thanks go to the guilt that inspired my dad for the last-minute decision) and Glen officially started yesterday! There's a lot of training he'll get to do the next couple months, but we're hoping that this first foray into his chosen field is successful. (because i have no desire to start all over again.)

Roosevelt is a definite change. (understatement, anyone?) We're out in the middle of nowhere and it's going to take a lot of getting used to. (especially the water. the water is gross.) But we love our new home, which is MUCH larger and OODLES nicer than our previous apartment. (not hard.) And even though it takes only a couple of minutes to circumnavigate the town, it seems like a nice little location. And nice people, too. I will still have moments when I really miss my old pals and the support center I had in Provo. (and costco.) (and costco.) (and costco.) But I'm hopeful that I can make good friends out here, as well, even without being within three blocks of most of them. ;)

For the curious-minded, here are some pics of our place. We're mostly settled in, just have to hang the pictures up. So please excuse the bare walls!

Yep, the pack n play is still up next to the crib. Megan's been too lazy to take it down.

 Guest/Isaac bathroom. One of the things I was excited about, because I got to get new towels and everything!

Nice big closet in our room.

 Kitchen/dining area. Lots of light. Love it. (and an island! fancy schmancy.)

Glen hadn't informed me the kitchen had a pantry. I wouldn't stop being excited about it for a good twenty minutes when we arrived.

A little backyard area

 Another view of downstairs so you can see where we put the all-important couch

 And this is where Isaac eats.

Our family in front

So if you ever want to visit dinosaur land out here in the Uinta basin (and apparently there IS a standard for when it's spelled "uinta" and when it's spelled "uintah"), we've got guest towels with your name on them! Just bring me some bulk stuff from Winco, please.

Welcome to the no Costco support group (sigh). Very happy about the pantry, etc.
Happy Adventure!
