We are finally moved into our home in Houston. I'm sooo exhausted!!! Not everything could fit onto the moving truck and we had to make two trips back and forth from Houston to Austin. Richard had to go to his new office on Friday. I stayed home and unpacked almost the entire house. I have the guest room, bedroom, and my office to attend to next week. We live north of Houston and it's in a heavily wooded area. The trees here are so beautiful. I forgot how peaceful it feels to live around huge trees. I went to school in Oregon but it has been years since I've lived in this type of environment. There is something calming about it. I haven't felt this calm since we moved from Louisiana. It was a great decision to move to this area.
We have so many friends that live in Houston and a ton of business associates. Our phone has been ringing off the hook. I can't get over how nice everyone is in the Houston area. This afternoon I was driving through our neighborhood and two strangers smiled and waved at me and my next door neighbors brought me a cold drink while I was setting up our front porch. When I stopped by the post office this woman turned around and welcomed me to the area. Everyone is sooo nice. I think I've been up north too long,ha, ha...
