Thanksgiving

I know it's a little late for this post, but I'm still trying to get myself together after Thanksgiving. We spent the holiday in Tropic this year and enjoyed getting back to small town America for a few days. There's just something about a small town that you can't find in the big city. There's a sense of peace and a lot more time for thought about one's life. I suppose that is because of an immense reduction in distractions in a small town. For one our cell phones don't work, there is no where to go, and the internet is painfully slow, thus more time to sit and think and enjoy the outdoors, which we did. There's something spiritual about spending time in the mountains. I wish we could go more often. The simple life is where it's at.

Hey Michelle, I just found your blog and thought I would say hi! It is so refreshing to see you blog about how frustrating motherhood can be! Its 2:30 am and toren (who has hair just like Taj) has been up and crying at least 10 times and the only thing keeping me sane and awake is surfing the net on Brady's blackberry..: so it was super nice to read your posts! And I think you are amazing to diligently pump- I would have given up! Oh, and I completely understand your whole shower thing... Its even harder with 2 kids. Right now a shower is a rare and very cherished thing. Anyways, it was good to see how you're doing! Good luck with everything.
