I'm Back!!!

Hey there everyone who might still ever check in at the Funny Farm. I took the summer off from blogging but now I'm back!! Here's a brief rundown of what we've been up to since Lucy was born on May 17. On July 20 we moved from SC back to Arkansas. We are currently living in Cabot, AR with my parents while we get settled with jobs and figure out what we want to do about buying or renting another house. We have renters in our SC house. So there are 4 adults, an infant and 5 big dogs in my parent's house...they are awesome for letting us live here! It's really nice to have the help with Lucy and hopefully they're enjoying the family time as well.

Right after we moved Rich got hired by the VA as a pharmacist in their outpatient pharmacy. But...they are suuuuper slow about getting things done so he still hasn't started yet!! He starts work Monday, after a 2 month (unplanned) paternity leave. I know he's antsy to get back to work, but has definitely enjoyed the time home with Lucy and me.

I don't have a job yet, but have worked a couple days at an independent pharmacy. I'm hoping to work about 20 hours a week and spend the rest of my time being Mama. I never dreamed I'd be "that girl" that wants to stay at home with a baby, but I totally am.

Running is going great so far. We're signed up for the Memphis half marathon in December and the Little Rock Marathon in March.




Here are a couple pic from this week. She is 4 months old:)

Hey Amanda! Great to get an update from you. The photos of Lucy didn't come through. :-( I so wanted to see her!
Things at MUSC are the same. Can't think of anything exciting going on there to tell you.
We miss you!

Glad you've had a good summer. There's a lot to be said about being close to family when you have little kids.
