Well, we've told everyone that this move was our attempt at an adventure! We certainly got what we asked for! Let me see if I can update everyone since I last posted. Last Saturday, August 18, we started loading the moving van! We have wonderful friends and family that came to help me since Gary wasn't able to be there. The moving company had estimated that we would use 17ft in the truck. They obviously had never seen my house. We used 24ft of a 26 foot trailer. The guys were wonderful though and had it all loaded by lunch! Hats off to all of you who helped!
Chance started school, which he loves. His teacher's name is Mr. Stuart! His school is only 2 blocks from the house, so we all walk either to or from school everyday. The kids get a big kick out of going to the BIG School!
That's about it for now! Chance turns 6 tomorrow and Joel and Lawanna will be here on Friday! Talk to y'all soon!

We are almost finished on this end of the move! Everything is just about packed up. The trailer is being delivered today! I have plenty of help coming to help load up tomorrow. Our prayer is that we can get everything loaded in one day so the kids and I can leave Sunday morning.
Yes, I am going alone...I will be fine! I think we are going to stop in Tulsa, which is about halfway! Just pray for a safe trip and calm spirits!
We did get an apartment. It is a 3 bedroom 2bath on the first floor. The only downfall is that Chance's school started on Aug. 7th, which means he will be a couple of weeks behind. He's a smart kid though, he should pick it all right up.
I have our new address and will e-mail it to anyone who wants it, just let me know. Keep us in your prayers. Here goes nothing!

Well, a lot has developed over the weekend. We have decided to stop fighting with the mortgage company and realtor and just give up the house. It wasn't our "dream home" anyway. Gary is, as we speak, checking out apartments. We have found a couple that offer six month leases. They are big enough for us to survive until we find the house we love. Both apartments are in good schools and good areas. You do what you have to. Our priority is being together. Anyway, I'm still planning on leaving Monday. The packing is slowly moving along. We will keep you updated. STAY TUNED!

Okay...Things are progressing, slowly, but they are progressing. Gary has successfully finished his first week of work. He even got invited to play golf this afternoon. I hope he doesn't embarrass himself (HA HA!!) He has been dealing with the mortgage broker in CO, who seems to be totally incompetent. We just pray that it all works out before closing. The walk through on the house is scheduled for next Tuesday.
I am still busying packing. I haven't done too much today. They showed the house around lunch, and Kate had to go to the Vet, and we needed groceries, so the whole day has been shot. Tonight I have my last ladies night out with all my friends. Chance may have his first sleepover. We'll let y'all know how that goes. It should be okay as long as Tripp lets Chance "Snuggle" his ears.
Tomorrow we are going to KOSY for Mason's birthday party. We will also be saying our good-byes, since this will probably be the last time we head that way before leaving on the 20th. I am still planning on driving alone, unless things change. Keep us in your prayers as next week promises to be even crazier!

Are you beginning to see a theme in my life? Tomorrow we are going swimming with Chance's preschool class...a welcomed break from all this (you guessed it) PACKING! Today I started the kitchen! It was the room that was looming over me, so I decided I would break it up before the pressure of time really gets to me.
All in all we've had a good day. For those of you who might be trying to call me though, I have no phone! Somehow we lost the cordless and can't find it anywhere. Yes we tried paging it... and still no luck. My cell phone is dead and I only have a car charger (which only works when the car is on)! So I am out of luck. I am trying to get a land line phone to use for the time being and will let you all know when I do! Talk to you soon!

Today has been more of the same. Packing, UGH! Chance and I are going bowling tonight with Melanie and Brooks since he probably won't get much of a birthday party this year. I spoke to Gary after lunch and he says things are going well at the new job, but there will be "some adjustments". I think he would rather just dive right into the work than have to be worried with all the orientation stuff. All in all it's going good!
He did drive by the new house this weekend and said things have really progressed since we were out there. We should be closing between the 15th and 18th. If you want to see our floor plan you can go to http://www.drhorton.com/corp/GetFloorPlan.do?dv=Y5&pr=41835&pl=1138687
PS: I know the picture from yesterday was sideways... I told you I was still learning how to do all this.
