Long Time No Blog

It has been a while since I have been on here. Mainly because my dad set up some security thing that wouldn't allow me to log on. I hope to begin posting on here again. So come visit me.

One major update since my last post. I have been seeing someone, lets call him LD, for almost 5 months. It has been moving very quickly. Munchkin has meet him and likes him. We have gone on a vacation with him and his family. He has met my family. We have talked about the future and he even hinted one day last weekend that he was looking at rings. Yikes. I like the thought of all that, but at the same time I don't want to go too fast. This relationship has a few complications that add to the stress. First he is in a wheelchair, which has taken some getting used to, but if I do say so myself I have handled it well. Secondly he has to get used to Munchkin and Munchkin to him. Thirdly he has a house in Plato, Missouri, which is about 4 hours from St. Louis. This wouldn't be so bad except that the house is in the middle of no where and the closest Walmart is 45 minutes away. Walmart is everywhere, but here, so what does that say. It is a farmer town, so I would become a farmer wife if I moved there. He is here on the weekends, but plans to start stay there full time very soon.

I wouldn't mind living in the country, but he is so far out there that I would have to deal with a few dangers that I am not sure I am ready to deal with especially with a child that could get into trouble. He doesn't live there fulltime, so I am sure the troubles will lessen when someone is there all the time. I mean he has had to shot a cottonmouth (poisonous snake) that was on the front porch. He has also has problems with bobcats walking in the yard. Usually this wouldn't bother me, but I would never feel safe letting Munchkin play outside by himself. He has neighbors that have raised kids with no problems, so I guess it will be ok, but I just worry and get nervous. I have told him to stop telling me about this stuff, but he knows I would rather know than not.

Relationships are all about compromise, so we will figure it out some how. Only time will tell.
