and so our new life begins ...

we are finally getting settled. it has been 2 months ... and we have gotten the house feeling a little more like home. we still struggle with bed time ... ella has not adjusted very well to her new environment and gives me a heck of a time at night, but i know it will get better. i feel very blessed to be in such a nice neighborhood ... it is truly charming. westerville is the back of my hand ... literally, so it isn't hard to feel like we fit right in. i will say this - i never knew what being a single mom was until we moved. it has made me more aware than ever that ella is my hands ... truly in my hands. life is challenging, but it is good. ella is happy ... and at the end of the day i feel like that's pretty good.
