Life

not feeling so bloggy lately. There is not much to blog these days anyway. We are just trying to live as normal a life as we can before it goes all topsy turvy with moving. Which is my least favorite thing to do, even though i do it a lot. I tell my Avery all the time that she needs to be flexible and able to deal with life, but honestly that is like the pot calling the kettle black(as my mom would say), because i don't handle it well. I am not good at those things. There is so much up in the air right now...it is hard to be grown up.

***i did not really mean for this to sound like such a downer. Sorry. this is just how we are feeling around here right now and i thought i would share what i am really feeling instead of just posting a craft or something silly the kids did. And yes, there will be more of that soon. This too shall pass.***

I'm sorry to hear that. :( Did the house sell yet?

Honey, you'll make it through!! It's just another phase to your life and you get to choose how you're going to deal with it. The bright side is you'll be only a 1/2 hour away from us!! (I'd also say...practice what you preach)!!
:0)

I know how you feel and it pretty much stinks. Sorry.

Hey... my security work is "burstbit", isn't that a funny word?

Hugs to you, Leslie. And dont apologize. You are being honest and transpartent and I like that.

Burreo for me, Colleen.

Being in one place when you know you are leaving for another is a hard place to be. I think that we mentally move earlier than we physically move. Hope that makes sense!

I will keep you in prayers today. And don't apologize for the being down, life isn't always sunny and it feels good to let it out!

Leslie, we'll keep your family in our prayers as you go through this transition!

I'm so sorry you're feeling "down." As for the blog, it was made for you, not you for it. It will still be here when you are ready to come back to it. As far as moving, it must be tough. I'm sorry you have to do it so often. Is it a local move? Or will you be leaving friends and family? I see your hubby is an Army officer--does that have anything to do with it? I understand that a bit. My hubby is retired.

Hang in there...

Leslie,
I'm not a fan of moving either---I even dislike living out of a suitcase for more than a weekend. I like settled. :) thinking of you!

I think a pumpkin scone might make it a little better.

I wish I could give you some love muffins right now... they're raspberry today.

i'm so sorry, so glad you shared so we know how to pray for you guys! Limboland isn't fantastic, so why do we visit so much?
love and hugs...

I miss you!!!!! If I could I would fly up to see you. (But Bill Gates hasn't sent me any money, oh wait, I mean Steve Jobs, since we're Apple people!) If you want to come to Texas just come on down! Or better yet, when I'm in chicago for 6 weeks in December, come to Chicago! My mom has a 5 bedroom house! Know that I am praying for you and I sure do appreciate the fact that you write on my blog all the time!! May the Lord grant you peace as you wait for your house to sell.

Love, J

Don't be sorry for being honest girl. It is what it is and we are here to listen. :) Praying for you, that this move is smoother then ever inspite of house selling problems and all the rest (Dee's kept me informed). Love you girl, and have enjoyed getting to know you better here.

being honest is better than fake crafting. i chickened out several years ago, we wanted to move to colorado and would have sold our house at a great time. i dont totally regret it, but the stress of planning it was overwhelming! i can totally relate. are you guys hoping to settle down sometime soon? maybe you can focus on that. i live life by the five year plan, look at everything in 5 year increments, reevaluating of course, but not being so stressed out about the problems we have day to day. if that makes sense!! if i have a goal to do something or am working on paying off debt, whatever, i make a 5 year plan and i never need the whole five years, it just makes me feel better. i know in 5 years from now i wont have the financial burden of child support for my step kids and we wont have any more child care expenses. hoping for some fun family vacations! then again, we will be heading in to the college years!
