Wow, to think it’s almost been an entire month since I last posted is absolutely insane. But as they say…life happens!
To be honest with y’all, I was in amazing place when we first moved to El Paso in the middle of August. I was excited by the newness, the possibilities, the unknown…then I went back home to Boise, Idaho for my brother’s wedding.
After two weeks of reconnecting with family and old friends in such a comfortable environment, the return trip back to El Paso (a place where I didn’t know my way around and I didn’t know anyone) gave me a bit of the blues.
I tried not to let the fact that I was far away from family and friends or the fact that I was essentially starting all over again bring me down – but it was.
The thing that is different about this move compared to our move to Georgia is that J. Alabama joined an Army Unit that was already active. We are basically the late ones to the party – so everyone already knows each other and are already established. In Georgia, he was attending a school, which meant all the Mil-Wives I met were in the same exact boat as me. New to the Army, new to Georgia.
So now I just have to be a little more proactive in every encounter I have with people. I know I will make friends and feel comfortable here in El Paso, it will just take some time.
Until then, J Alabama gets to explore this wild new world of El Paso with me! Which actually has been a blast. Here are few photos from our adventures this past month.

House Update: In other news…we are still anxiously awaiting the closing on our brand new house. There is talk that it could happen within the next two weeks [fingers crossed].
I can absolutely guarantee that I will be in a better place once we close on the house and I can be reunited with all my personal belongings. Camping out in a temp apartment for two months with only the items we packed in our cars is starting to wear me down.
I don’t like to blog when I don’t have anything positive to say, so that explains my silence the past few weeks. I feel better now that you all know what’s up with me and I assure you things are getting better every day over here.
Thanks for listening!! 🙂
