One by One, Hurrah!

Well we made it back to Tennessee. I’m already missing Austin, but if all goes well, we’ll be back for good in a month or so. I’ve been coughing ever since we’ve been back, and considering that Texas is the second state with the most cases of Swine Flu, I’m crossing my fingers that I just picked up a nasty cold. I’ve got my cough drops and ThermaFlu, so I should be fine.

The last few days in Austin were good. We continued to help out Ash’s dad at his carwash, and in return, he’s looking after Kendi for me until we can get down there. We moved Kendi down there because we set her up with a new ten gallon tank (as opposed to her large Tupperware tub) and it will be easier to control the humidity in Texas than it has been here in Tennessee. She’ll be much happier down there. I’m already missing her. She has Ash’s leopard geckos to keep her company though until we get down there.

It’s been raining nonstop since we’ve been back, and I can’t say I’m not enjoying it. I love the thunder and the sound of the rain on the pond outside. Speaking of the pond, while Mama Goose hasn’t had her goslings yet, the ducks have two new ducklings! They’ve taken to spending the rainy days in our backyard and no one is complaining. They’re very cute. I’ll try to take pictures at some point.

The ant infestation has also come back tenfold since we’ve left. Honestly, ants are the most amazing insects. They just stun me by how much they do. They walk for miles to find the smallest crumb and just know exactly what they’re supposed to do in life. I wish I had that security. Ants. Amazing. Just amazing. I just wish they would keep their amazingness limited to the outer walls of our house. I have to walk on my tiptoes for fear of squashing some poor defenseless scout.

In any case, I love being back and seeing all our kids, but I miss Austin. I can’t wait till we’re all there. It can’t come soon enough.
