I think that this is the longest I have gone without blogging! So many crazy hard things have happened but so have many good things as well. We are officially moved back to Utah. I have been working for 2 weeks and one day and believe it or not I'm really liking it! It is very hard to be away from the kids but they are with their dad so I don't worry...too much. I'm kidding, they are in great hands. Matt interviewed for a job today at a building just up the street from me. He said it went really well and so who knows, we may be able to carpool for the next little while until my temporary job ends. We are thrilled to be back in Utah but we do miss our friends in Arizona. Not a day goes by that I don't think of them or talk about them to someone. If only there were a way to blend the two different places. I want so much to show our AZ friends what the Garff family looks like and how it functions when it's not in crisis! Some of them only know the crazy life that we have been living since Matt's accident and I would love to show them the happy us. We will have to get our own place so that we can coax them into visiting. The kids are doing well. They spend their days playing in the backyard at grandpa's house and hunting for "rollie pollies." Ivan has a cup full of them, it's really quite gross. Things have fallen into place in such amazing ways for us. There is no doubt that coming home was the right thing to do. Now we just long to share that with our AZ friends as well. I guess it's true you can't have it all, at least not all of the time.

It's funny...I was just thinking about your post on facebook and I thought, "It just feels like the Garffs are in the right place now." It's a wonderful thing to have that reassurance of the spirit and see God's tender mercies in your life.

I know what you mean about others knowing what your family is like when you are okay. That's how I feel about our time in TX. I swear, the entire time I was in need. Not fun. I just wish people could see us now, that we are together and functioning.
