just an update. we've been in our new house a month. it's starting to feel like ours. finally. i'm getting used to driving into town. funny how driving 20 minutes on surface streets to get anywhere in Mesa, AZ didn't seem like a big deal. now i drive a dirt road, then some black-top, and finally freeway to get into Butte. it seems like a big deal.
we're using hotspots for internet. we have limited downloads. being newbies at limiting our internet time, we used up our 20 GB before our month was half over. i'm sitting at the local bakery/coffee shop right now.
i thought it would be extremely hard to go without. my kids certainly did. but it's been good. my kids are spending more time with each other. we're doing other things. i'm slowly working on my Eldala sequel. and oddly enough, i've started revising a romantic comedy-chick book i started back in 2007, right after i'd finished Eldala and wanted to take a break from epic fantasy and see if i could do something comical. i read it over a few weeks ago because i was bored and remembered how much i like it.
writing is a good thing for me. i was starting to wonder if i still had it in me. i do. cool.
