The misadventures of Sophie, her mom, and dad.

So yeah, after all the complaining I have done about getting Sophie to just go down for a nap with a minimum of fuss, she decides to do just that. I looked at her, she was rubbing her eyes. I made sure her daiper was good, kissed her on her head and laid her in her bassinet. She played for about 5 minutes then I heard silence. I tiptoed over and peeked in...she was sound asleep. And she's been asleep for over an hour. OH.MY.GOD. Uncontainable joy!
Tim probably won't believe me when he gets home. But I'm going to try this when it's time for her to go to bed tonight and see what happens. Probably, with my luck, she will scream bloody murder til we go back to desperately rocking/walking/pleading her to sleep.
Wish us luck.

Well, that was easy.

Yup, we are moving to NY. Not NYC, but central NY. To a beautiful area that is quaint and semi-touristy, and looks kind of like a storybook town. Jobs up there pay so much better, places to live are affordable, it's only a 6 hour drive from here.
I'm really excited. Tim is too, actually which is nice since it's where he is from. Having visited there, I can see why he moved away. As a teenager it can be a boring place. As a family looking for a safe, family oriented place? It's a haven. Plus, there are things to do there almost all the time. A lot of it is free too. Even a better bonus for a family working to get ahead.
I don't want to leave my family, but I also have to think of my own family and we have to do what is best for us. I'm scared yet at the same time very excited. I'm just hoping it all goes well so we can actually enjoy our lives together without worrying how we are going to manage to pay our bills and have enough money left over for food. Even if we can jsut do that? I will be MUCh happier.
