I was in a slump and hating Colorado, but I am beginning to turn it around.
I think it was my lack of activity. A big part of my life in Texas was training and racing with fellow teachers and friends.
I have a race with a friend scheduled this next weekend. Today was the half marathon with Gunner.
I joined a running group, and there are plenty of opportunities for me to run, if I just had the time!
The girls will start a new school that I am really excited about, and they are too.
I will visit Texas in the next two weeks, get my fill of mexican food, take the girls to camp, see friends and family, and return home to Colorado. Home.
Sometimes it takes me longer to settle into places than others, and while I won't say that I am ready to stay in Colorado the rest of my life (there is a state income tax mind you!), I can say that I will make the best of my time here.
There's plenty to see. Plenty to do. I need to get over my shyness and get out there and enjoy everything that this state has to offer.
This is the first time we have PCSed and the girls are old enough to remember me putting myself out there and making a new life for ourselves. I need to show them that you can make every place that you are, a home.
Now if I could just teach them how to match socks and clean their rooms...
