Kristin and her family made it to the LAND OF ENCHANTMENT yesterday. That's really what New Mexico is called. I know that is hard to believe but it's true. After 2 days of traveling, 18 1/2 hours in a mini van and 3 very sick kids (complete with vomiting and bathroom issues)........they arrived in the not so enchanted city of Roswell. I know I am very lucky to have never seen a cockroach and I know that cockroaches are everywhere.......but I will not move to New Mexico no matter how much I miss Kristin and her adorable children. Even after extensive bug spraying Kristin said yet another cockroach wandered out this morning and died a slow torturous death. And there is actually a tarantula season in Roswell. You could walk outside and see 20 or more of the furry creatures on your front lawn. Oh and the scorpions! They are the worst because they are poisonous. If those creatures aren't enough of a deterrent, Roswell is known for "Aliens" and even the local Wal Mart has pictures of aliens in the windows. If the residents are trying to make the city less appealing then they have succeeded. But the weather is nice in New Mexico in the winter. It was in the 60's when they arrived. Kristin's husband does have a great job in The Land of Enchantment and I'm sure they will make New Mexico a great experience. I am already missing Kristin and her kids terribly. I miss Ericka more than she knows too. It has definitely been a year of losses. If one of my kids would just move to a beach city I'd be there in a minute.
And just a little update to my last post: Doctors may know something. According to my bloodwork I have a pretty good infection going on (so much for remission). I'm taking Levaquin for 10 days and then having more tests done. All the positive thinking in the world is not fixing my medical problems. I need a small miracle at this point.
