So after the most crazy day yesterday.
I'm heading out as soon as my trailer is packed
and I turn in the modem for the Internet.
I'm on my way now to get gas and road snacks.
I'm going to miss my house-
Is that weird?
We upgraded the floors, windows, counter tops,
built walls on the staircase,
did the outside paint and stair-safety-stuff out back.
And I, yes I alone,
painted the whole entire inner (minus the master),
did both big boys rooms twice and the kitchen twice.
Once I get settled I'm going to have to post pics.
Now I'm not going to miss the sq footage,
yes a big house is nice and roomy,
5 bdrms holds a lot of crap,
an actual dining rm was nice,
laundry rm could have been up stairs.
But we didn't think of the fact that I do the majority of the cleaning.
2200 sq feet isn't fun to sweep and mop.
We don't have a lick of carpet anywhere.
Let alone we found out we were expecting Lyla 2 days before we moved in,
morning sickness anyone?
I layed on the floor for 3 months after moving in
and nothing was done during that time.
OK I'm going to stop now-this could go on forever-
Wish me luck, cross your fingers, positive thoughts everyone.
WA here I come!

my furry babies

I just wanted to show them off real quick.
The brindle mutt is Luke & the crested puff is Oreo
They are a pain at times but still my big lovable babies.

OK so now my hitch came in yesterday-dude 3 days early,
no one called to tell me and it doesn't even come with the ball part.
Are you kidding-I have to pay more.
So my day is super busy
and I need to see if uhaul can get me a trailer box now instead of Friday.
Hopefully today or tomorrow and I can head out early.
my list of things to do today
so I can remember
auto store
auto shop
insurance appt
dog appt
grocery shopping
I know there is more but it'll come to me way late.

3 days to go

Yesterday we had some looks,
it was a large family who ended up coming twice in the same day,
the kicker-I don't think they'll qualify,
being a mil. family just like them I know what they make,
plus shes got her, her hubby, 3 kids, her mom and dad too,
but they want to qualify on her income only,
hum that's odd.
Well 3 days to go till I hit the road,
Oh yeah baby!
So here I am excited to be with the hubby again,
and for J, he's showing the worst of the separation issues,
and just to be outta here,
6 yrs was way long enough,
our heat index was at 103 yesterday,
yeah 68 degrees sounds good to me right about now.
Plus how could you not want to be on the West Coast?
Can you believe it's been 10yrs since I left.
But I'm dreading the drive,
my stress level,
my sanity and my sleep deprived nights to come.
It's bad enough that I can't even sleep alone or through the night here at home.
Thanks to J & L oh Luke & Oreo too.
