Wow, sorry to the two of you that keep up with this blog it has been so long since I have posted anything. Oh wait, sorry to the one person, I guess I can't count to you dear reader, sorry. :) Life has been so much more insane than it normally is. So many changes are on the horizon for our little family.

Back in Feb we added another member to our family. One of the 4 legged kind. We have a dog. We have had dogs before, but for some reason we have flunked in being a dog family. This time we have it right. This little guy we found at Petsmart on one of their adoption days. We walked in and there he was. So simple and easy like it was meant to be. Okay, so it really wasn't that simple. We had been to several Petsmarts and Petcos that morning. On arriving at each store we would walk in look around and jump back in the truck and head out for the next location (I had it all mapped there were 11 possible places to visit.) This one happened to be the 5th place we went to that morning. For some reason, I had the dog bug and was on a mission to find the right one. Well this one is perfect for us, he loves us, is scared of his shadow, eats cat food, and doesn't really bark. Basically he is weird like the rest of our us.

Another crazy thing is, we are moving. Yes, we are in that nut state of trying to tie up ends here in our AZ residence to head back to TN. Our time was cut short by a few months so now we find ourselves scrambling around trying to finish up appointments, grab records and say our goodbyes. This move is a little different than the ones in the last few years. This time we have decided that this season in our life isn't crazy enough we need to add more to it. So why not pack up all our things ourselves and have it moved cross country. All the time praying it will fit into the truck we have rented. Since living in the desert for 2 years we have been hoping that our things are smaller due to the lack of water. And hope that once we get back into the humidity our belongings will wait until they are out of the truck to go back to their original size.

Other happenings are just to numerous to name at this time. Plus, I need to go teach the things in my house. Anyhow dear happy reader, I pray your day is blessed!


  1. Good luck with the move. We did the whole moving ourselves once.....I have decided that I will never participate in another one. Of course, the kids were all still small at the time so that may have had something to do with it.

  2. The last time we moved ourselves was when you guys helped us. I remember your husband telling mine the height of our truck...that saved us. We almost went under a college campus catwalk and took the top off. That trip was filled with mishaps! Probably the reason why we have let the military moved us since. So why are we doing it again? :)

  3. Stumbled on your blog. Yeah now you have another reader! I hope your move is a happy one. Have an amazing day.
