Tidbits

I want to blog but my thoughts are scattered so I thought I’d do a tidbit themed post 🙂

Green smoothies-I will be getting a GOOD blender soon (have to check the budget) so that I can start these. Someone asked me what these are so I’d like to explain as best as I can. A couple of months ago I found Boho Girl’s blog. She is a beautiful soul who’s TTC and adoption story inspired me. In one of her posts she talked about green smoothies and how she and Cedar (her and Boho Boy’s son) enjoy them daily. She provided a link to Happy Foody, a blog of Sara’s, another blogger that has inspired me. If any of my readers also drink green smoothies, I’d love to see your recipes 🙂

Our new home-It’s a rental house with a huge backyard and it was built in 1975. To call the electrical wiring a clusterfuck would be an understatement. (More on that in a later more detailed post). It’s got 3 bedrooms and one and a half baths. The dogs are immensely happy with the yard. The neighborhood is old and somewhat run down in parts but it is quiet and safe. We’ve talked about buying a home here in the Springs and settling down 🙂

Belonging-It is amazing to be in a big city after 2 years of living in a backwoods town. Once again I feel like I belong. I don’t feel like my leftist views and conservation views are weird here. People walk, ride bikes and use public transportation. I plan to start regularly going back to church again, probably to an Episcopal church. I plan to get serious about photography again and maybe even try to sell my work. My spirit is renewed here.

Sick-I’ve been sick and Ranger is now sick. for those who don’t know, I visited the Army hospital’s ER the first day that we moved into our home. Everyone there was wonderful! I am now recovering from a pretty severe UTI. I was actually crying (because of the pain) in the car on the way to the ER and I have NEVER cried because of an IUI. Ranger is now sick-a little blood in poop and vomiting. We think it’s the new food we bought them. Malibu and Bear won’t eat much of the food. Today we are going to PetsMart to get their regular food for them.

Nature-I am daily amazed at the beauty of the Rocky Mountains ❤

In laws-My FIL is coming to visit us for a week. He wants to help us get settled and help us do anything around the house that needs doing. He's also bringing P's snowboarding stuff so that P can snowboard this winter (if he's even here this winter).

The D word-Unless things change (like he gets send to another unit) P will be deploying before the winter. We are both not really thinking about it right now which is good. We will cross that bridge when we come to it. There are positives to deployment and I am determined to focus on those when the time comes.

Blogs-Today's goal is to catch up on the 300+ blogs in my Google Reader 🙂

    Glad you are settling in well! I’m sorry you got sick but glad you are feeling better. 🙂 I’ve never seen the Rockies, other than in pictures but I look forward to seeing some pictures you might post of them! I’ve heard the Springs is a gorgeous place. 🙂 I hope Bear feels better soon!

  2. i’ve been drinking green too…wheat grass green 🙂

  3. I’m glad you are settling in so well! We go to Chapel Next on post which is a nondenominational, contemporary service but they have a wide range of religious services on post (you can see them on the Ft Carson website). Good luck finding a church you enjoy, that is the hardest thing for us when we move.

  4. Glad things continue well–except for that UTI! No fun—but I’m glad you were able to get the treatment you needed. Your spirits are definitely lifted being in Colorado—hard not to be surrounded by all that natural beauty. 🙂

    Sending you a big hug gal! Keep enjoying!!

  5. I am so glad to hear you are settling in and doing well (except for that nasty UTI; I hope that goes away soon)! I’m dying to see some pictures of this Colorado scenery. 🙂

  6. So glad your liking your new digs and feeling like you belong. Boo on getting an uti, but I’m glad your feeling better. I hope your pup feels better soon.

  7. I’m glad things are going well for you. Hubs and I really want to visit Colorado. It’s so gorgeous!

    I’m sorry about the UTI and Ranger being sick. That really stinks! Hope you’re both better soon!

    I look forward to seeing your photography. I really want to learn and grow in that field. I wish there was more time in the day. Or that I didn’t have to work so much.

  8. My favorite of your tidbits is “my spirit is renewed!” YAY!!! Hope you and Ranger feel better!

  9. Our house was built in the 50s and it took 3 visits from an electricial just to fix one outlet. It’s a mess.

    This spring we plan on trying to get power out to our garage again. It randomly stopped working after living here a year. I am expecting it to be a full blown disaster, haha.

    Glad you are enjoying colorado. You being happy makes me happy. 🙂

  10. Colorado is awesome! I lived there for a year! Glad you are happy there. Good luck!

  11. I’m so glad to hear that you’re happy in your new home – and I hope you feel better soon! (and the fur-babies! It’s the worst when they are sick).
    Can’t wait to see some of your photos!

    I just found your blog via Twitter. I also recently started reading Boho Girl’s blog, and have decided to do the green smoothie thing too. It’s been an incredible experience–my acne is all but gone and I can actually wake up breathing most mornings. I’m basically in love.

    As for recipes? I put in a good dose of Green Magma to get that superfood boost. We use chia seeds, blackberries, and whatever organic frozen fruit is on sale. Spinach, frozen pineapple, homemade yogurt, bananas, and avocados are the staples we use each time. I can see this going on for much longer than the month, and I’m excited about trying new blends!
