Less than a month ago we moved to Fairbanks. What's more fun than taking a 3 month old infant on a 9 hour plane ride to our new home. The new home that my husband and I bought...the one that I had yet to see. Many of my friends asked me "who in their right mind let's their husband pick out a house without you seeing it?" I reminded them that they answered it already with "in their right mind." The Bug (sadly, we rarely call him his real name, so I will just call him Bug here too) was 4 weeks old when his dad flew to Fairbanks from Seattle to look for a house. I was getting about 4 hours of sleep a day. I wasn't in my right mind, but I was in my right mind when I met and married Bug's dad 7 years ago. He knows me well, and knows that he'd have to live with me if I hated it. He's not stupid.
So, why a blog? Many of you might have found this blog from my horse blog. The horse has been with her new owner for over a year now, and there was no real point to write a blog about a horse I didn't have. Now I had an equally expensive addition to my house (the infant.) I loved the people who read my blog. They are wonderful, and amazing. I miss them and writing. Since everyone keeps telling me "get a hobby" and drinking copious amounts of wine with a 4 month old would be frowned upon, and isn't a hobby ( and honestly, I couldn't do it anymore anyway) I figured what else?
Things I enjoy:
1. Photography. I enjoy taking photos, but I'm not good at it. Goal #1 get better at photography
2. Baking. (But stop eating the damn things!)
3. Riding (Hard to do with an infant)
4. Making crap (I say crap because 83% of the time it doesn't turn out the way I want it to, and I'm anal.)
5. Talking about myself.
I figured the only thing that I have time to do right now is talk about myself, and I can include the rest of the above list in this blog.
Usually I am in a frazzled state when I write and my topic bounces from one to another without much transition. The positive is now I'm going to blame the infant when really that's just who I am.
So, welcome! Welcome to watching the city girl learn to live as an adult in Alaska with an infant without going crazy (no promises on the last part!)
