Mix and Match

My intention was to write at least a little each day so that I didn't forget what we did while visiting everyone but I begin to doze at about 7:30 so my desire to be on the computer is just not there. But anyway... we arrived safely in Dover about 7pm on Tuesday night. It was a long flight with all the layovers but it is worth it to be able to spend time with family. Aunt Kathy and Nikki were able to drive up and visit for a few days and I'm so glad they did.

It didn't take long for Isabella to warm up to everyone and she is having a blast making everyone laugh. It's really entertaining to see her be such a ham. She's a charmer for sure but I've never seen her quite like this. She enjoys pointing Daddy out in all the pictures and is always checking the computer to see if he's there. She was introduced to snow but she's not quite sure what to think of it. Thankfully, she's handling the carseat and heavy coat well.

Jet lag hasn't been too terrible. Yes I start to get a bit tired early but that's to be expected and if I'm doing something I'm usually okay. Isabella has done great and I'm so thankful for all those who have been praying for us. We've only had one bad night so far.

I've enjoyed Chick-fil-a, Mexican and Wendy's so far and have been overwhelmed in Walmart. I realized today though that it's not so much the household/clothing type items it's the grocery section. There are so many choices and I was amazed at how everything is so convienent... (I couldn't get over the bags of apple slices or the different types of dr. pepper...when did it become flavored?). I've been amazed at how quickly our bodies adjust to the weather where we live... I'm freezing here when I go outside and I'm constantly saying... how is this possible, I moved from MN?

Well there are lots of thoughts going through my mind, lots of things to process and adjust back to... I feel so out of the loop and almost out of place but I guess that's a good sign. I did laugh at the expression of the lady at the deli in Atlanta's airport when I asked for Coke Light (and myself for repeating... Diet Coke, Diet Coke before hand and then saying Coke Light anyway) when she said, 'What?'

Okay... I really need to get to sleep. I don't know what the night holds with Isabella.

There is a lot for you to take in and to relearn. I hope it will continue to be a blessing to you.
