Sitting cozied up on the couch watching my electric heater/fireplace thinking about our adventure so far. It's a very rainy and cold day today.
Chronic pain is my partner it seems, and it is as though it's not planning on leaving anytime soon like I originally thought it might by getting out of the allergy region of our state. It's just a set of new ones to deal with.
It has been debilitating some days and I have questioned the sanity of attempting this move. However I have had some refreshing breathes of air when I'm away from the stinky driftwood of the beach and the beautiful green trees and shrubbery. Sometimes that can make it all worth it. People are meant to be outside, being cooped up is not living. 2 years of that and I'm calling it quits on that lifestyle at least for now.
This lifestyle is something exciting and would thoroughly be enjoyable without this chronic companion. I am going to move forward with finding another specialist of some sorts because the pain is unbearable. I don't think God wanted to throw me into the depths of woe. I know he has a plan for me. Faith in God is waiting for his timing. I am probably the most impatient person and he is definitely letting me learn patience - I cry like I'm a 3 year old from the horrible migraines that flare up and the burning stabbing pain in my lungs and respiratory system that feels like I'm being slowly stabbed. Infection feels like it's riddled all up my shoulders, neck, head and sinus's.
I don't know how long I can endure this anymore, but on my good days I will enjoy my kids and soak up every happy moment with them. Enjoying the moment now is important to all of us.
We enjoyed seeing the land change as we drove through it.
Have you ever seen a swamp before? Drive through Louisiana. Crazy stuff.

As soon as we get my computer rolling I am planning to do some little previews of the places we stay.
In the meantime we are settled in an area for a couple days then we plan on finding a place we can stay for a longer period of time.
I'll show you where we stayed in Texas.
