Thursday Thoughts

Well, it looks like we are back into a deal for the sale of our home, I am praying cause this rollar coaster ride is not very fun and since I have matured a little I am no longer a rollar coaster fan, they make my stomach quesy!

  • You don't need a snowblower in FL-so I sold ours!
  • I have given away our non-packables, but there is still more.
  • MiB got to see good friends on his trip to AL-I am envious!!!
  • A gracious and faithful God is getting me through day by day.
  • The dent to our savings account to get out of this house is going to be huge, but thank God we do have a savings account to pull from and do not need to get a loan!

It's been sooooo busy I feel this bloggie world of mine has been neglected and it will only get worse as the frenzy of packing out starts. I will try to keep the updates coming but they may be slower then I'd like.

Thursday Thoughts!

Wow, a week has passed so quickly and so many things can happen in such a short amount of time. I really feel like the world is closing's been a pretty down week, but the weekend in MO was awesome. We had lots of fun doing "stuff" from walking the lake, cropping til past 2 a.m., dinners out at some of our favorite places, playing with "the littles", basketball games, bowling and just being around the family, it did my soul good.

Thoughts for today:
  • Addendums are real deal breakers
  • There is no sold sign on my for sale sign anymore =(
  • Lil' Blue and I had such a great time in MO with family
  • At least while in MO I missed the BIG snowstorm in NE
  • I am really having some major financial anxiety, but I am not going to let it control me

Trying to stay warm on a very chilly day in NE and hoping that someone would like to buy my house, like NOW!

Thursday Thoughts

Hmmmm, I have lots of thoughts swirling around today...we are heading down to MO to see the family for a few days, my daughter isn't too terribly thrilled about this, it is Valentine's
day this weekend you know and she does have a boyfriend...this is some season I am in.

  • I feel like a single parent, I do not like it
  • I am wrestling with a child growing up
  • I am being much can I love?
  • I have too much pride most of the time
  • I am glad I have a God who loves me through it ALL


There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven--

We are thrilled to finally see this...and I think the sign says it all!

And for the close up in case you are missing it, there's a SOLD sign!

To say this is an answer to prayer is an understatement! The closing is 6 March. It is a relief to have this burden lifted from our life, now I am really counting down the days til I am able to join MiB in FL! It's time to finish cleaning out those last few drawers, schedule the movers and clean out the freezer, we're moving kids!

Friday Flashback

Since I am soooooo ready for the warm weather, I thought I would share lil'blue in this getup that her Uncle G brought back from Hawaii a few years back, 6 to be exact! I think Hawaii sounds might fine right about now.
Though the weather has been incredibly nice the past few days and looks like we are getting a few more nice days as well before some rain settles in.

The funny thing is she can still wear this getup...but now she fills out the top, YIKES!
And BTW, the party is in full swing over at Carrie's place, so you really should join us! We are a very nice bunch!

Thursday Thoughts

Well, here it is Thursday again...

I am glad to be safely back home.
My dad's surgery went well, results were not as good as hoped for.
We have an offer on our house-it is way low.
To recover in this economy no matter any offer will be a challenge.
I am trusting in God to continue to take care of us.

Thank you for your prayers and thoughts; please continue to remember us as we decide how to proceed with this offer on our home. I am too tired tonight to really wade through the details, but will be at it first thing in the morning as we put together a counter and conditions to go with it. Stay tuned...

And it's only Tuesday, I don't think this week can come to a close quick enough...yesterday, WAS a true Monday for know the kind, the ones when nothing seems to go right in your world. That was my day, so now onto Tuesday, and I feel as though I am having another Monday, I really want this to end...

Yesterday we lowered the price of our house, no worries, we are just going to lose even more $ and we have come to terms with that, we know that God will provide somehow and we will recover. I will say I have shed more then a few tears in the past 24 hours.

Today, my vehicle's check engine light came on, but thankfully, the dealership had the sensor part in stock and I am roadworthy again; I even have new transmission fluid in my car as well. I know it doesn't seem like much, but I need to be in KC tomorrow morning for my dad's surgery so having car issues today at 2:00 p.m. just caused a little more anxiety in my already somewhat stressed world. I am also very thankful the sensor was an under warranty fix! The transmission fluid change part was our dime, but well worth it I am sure. I also saw God's hand in this, because I would not have wanted this to happen on the road tomorrow so today was the best day for it to happen, God's timing, impeccable!
