Ramblings of a Young Mama

A real update, so to speak!

Where do I even begin? I miss my mom. A lot. I never in a million years imagined myself being 16-18 hours away from her. I have been webcamming with her so she can me and the baby and we can see her and well it sucks! We probably won't be going home until around Christmas time. I'm hoping to see my family before then. But it probably won't happen. I really miss home and everyone there. I just keep telling myself, we're doing this to better our lives together. We're doing this to give Keegan a good life. I truly believe this. But in that same sense, it doesn't mean that it isn't hard. :(

On another note, our apartment is pretty spacious and comfortable. I'm pretty close to unpacked completely. There's just a few keepsake boxes left to go through and sort out. I'm hoping to accomplish that soon, but we will see I guess.

Keegan is growing too fast. 17 months already. He knows where his nose is now! It's sooooo cute! but he's a becoming major PITA a lot now too. I guess I can blame that on the "Terrible Twos" beginning! Any pointers from you experienced moms on how to deal with him hitting and biting things? Since this is a new found habit. He doesn't bite me or anyone else, just things. (like the couch and my phone) It's rather annoying to say the least. I dunno..

Justin loves school. I'm so glad too. He likes his job too. Now if only my job didn't act like they were going to give me hours and actually did give me hours we'd be fine. GRRR. It makes me so mad. I came here expecting nearly full time hours and I get my first shift not for when I got here, like it was supposed to be 3 weeks ago, but for this coming Saturday and it's a whooping 4 hours! ARE YOU SERIOUS! That's such a waste of time. :| It's irritating. So I'm looking for a new job! Anyone got any ideas?

I'm loving designing scrap stuff again! I'm working on transferring it all out of my personal blog and into one for just Squishy Scraps, but well I'm just too lazy to make the template :P I will though! One day ;)

On that note, what do you all think about how I'm doing? I'd really love to know as I'm nervous as all get out about it. I like to think I'm doing ok for a beginner, but then again I'm kinda bias :D I guess that's all for now!

Until next time,
