Ready to go, go, go.
  • I am so ready to join my husband here- St. George, Utah. I am missing him like crazy and I can't wait to see him again. 
  • The days seem so much longer without him. I try to keep myself busy, but without him coming home from work to break up my day, it seems so long. Luckily, my mom has stopped by twice this week to  watch the little dude while I pack.
  • I am getting ready for a yard sale this weekend and I hope I can sell everything. I have to get rid of everything because traveling 2000 miles is just too expensive and would be even more expensive if we had to rent a U-haul. So we are selling all that we can and taking the necessities. It stinks, but we've got to do it.
  • My parents didn't take the news well, my mom is pretty supportive, but still very sad that we are moving so far away. My stepdad, is extremely upset and wakes up in the middle of the night crying over it- but, he is being very helpful in getting things figured out. My dad and step mom are very very upset. Our relationship has turned really tense and I hate it. 
  • Everyone says that in order to be happy you need to make yourself happy first. They never mentioned that by making yourself happy you would, in turn, make others unhappy. Ugh.
  • I am so sad to be leaving my family and hate that they are hurting over it, but we really need to do this for ourselves. There's a huge chance that we could be very happy out there- this time.
  • I really hope this yard sale goes over well! They are calling for a 60% chance of  rain tomorrow and I desperately hope that it passes us. Or if it does rain, it rains in the early morning and is just cloudy the rest of the day. 

What's on your mind lately?



  1. Oh, gosh. Sounds like you've got your hands full, lady. I can sympathize.. We moved from California to Vermont, and we tried to get rid of everything we owned to avoid having to rent a truck. Ugh, it sucked. But the fresh start is so worth it.. and in the end, things are just things. You can always buy new things. That's fun, too. Good luck! :) :)

  2. I hope the weather cooperates and you have a ton of sales. My husband travels a lot for work, I hate when he is gone too.

  3. Oh, gosh, sweetie, sounds like a lot of emotional ups and downs for you. So sorry to hear about those struggles! When we left for the US my IL's were very upset and couldn't understand it, but they got over it and when they realized how happy we were, they changed! Keeping my fingers crossed for you!
    Hugs and good luck for the yard sale xxx

  4. Thanks for sharing with us, girlie. I sincerely wish you the best, with the yard sale and moving! I know how stressful it can be, especially moving out of state. But, your family loves you and they will soon understand why you did the things you did and will be happy for you. I just know it. *Crossing fingers for no rain!*

  5. Holy craps. Same brain! We're having a yard sale this weekend too! Good luck with yours!! Being away from family is what we hate most about military life. We can't decide if K should re-enlist or not because it's such a pain. Totally sucks. And it totally sucks it's affecting your relationships with them right now. Chin up lady! It'll work itself out! And there's always Skype! You guys have to do what will make you happy!
