Well, it’s official. Down to the wire. In 2 weeks I say goodbye to Texas and hello to 1300 miles of driving to my destination in Ohio. New adventures, new opportunities, and well, some negatives too, but I refuse to dwell on them any longer. This week I’ve spent a lot of quality time with the kiddo since I won’t see her for a few weeks, including going to the main park downtown here. She loved going across the bridges and seeing the ducks, and we even managed to get some decent pictures.
Concho River Duckies!
David even went with us to the park, and hand fed a duck a pizza crust(I really don’t think they’re supposed to have pizza o.O It was kind of cool to see him feeding it, but I’m never getting close to one. I’ve been chased by those assholes a few times, and geese are jerks! -.-

The one thing I am going to miss are the mild weather days we’ve had around here most of winter. It stays pretty cold up in OH during the winter…meaning my sister-in-law said on average the high is like 40…sooo I’m probably going to freeze to death this coming winter. Still, I’d rather deal with the cold than the 100F+ degree heat we get here during the summer. Also, no evil grass stickers so I might actually be able to enjoy grass without feeling the earth trying to murder my feet. Let’s not forget, as a former equestrian I will be beside myself getting to attend the Equine Affaire this year. I’m probably going to blow money on shit I have no use for just because. Also, I have been trying to coerce David into letting me lease a horse after he finds a decent job. I only say that because it’s still a bit more cost effective for me than buying my own at the moment, but as it’s pretty much the only hobby I’ve ever had that is no relation to the internet or reading, he’s encouraging it while wincing at the cost of the horse industry.
I’m trying to look at all the positives and opportunities moving will bring me, and dwelling less on the negatives of doing so. There really is no sense in letting myself be depressed when I know that in the long run, this is definitely for the better, and I am very much trying to enjoy it and have a positive outlook on it all. I’m glad that, despite it all, everything is already looking more positive, and I really think I’ll be able to even achieve my weight goals once I get away from all this unnecessary stress!
Before I go, I have a recommendation for you all that like YA romance novels. If you haven’t yet, give Julie Kagawa’s “The Iron Fey” series a chance. I was pleasantly surprised that it was pretty decent. Even has a major Shakespearean influence! The first book is called Iron King and I’ve read through all 4 of the books, and I really did enjoy it for a find at our closing media store!
