The Move


Okay, so I told everyone that I am not a blogger because I don't have time, but I decided that when I move to Abilene (in January), this will be a great way to keep up with friends. But I want to take the pressure off of myself and go ahead and say that I will not be worrying about my writing style or trying to say anything profound. Just ramblings mainly. . .

So here are today's ramblings. I've been feeling anxious, or maybe nervous, about all of the changes that will be taking place in the next few months. We put our house on the market, which is a difficult thing to do since we put so much of ourselves into this little place. I don't know why I get so sentimental about stuff, but I do. This is the house I brought my baby home to, and this is the house that my entire family (and some sweet friends) slaved over so we could move in on time. My dad, sister, and brother-in-law built the fence out back. I painted several rooms in the house. My father-in-law and husband built the deck and balcony, and my mom and mother-in-law helped paint the exterior. Chad and I stayed up until midnight several nights to refinish the floors. And just about everyone I know helped with our front door! All of this to say, it will not be easy to leave. I have been wondering why we haven't had an offer yet! Chad keeps reminding me that it's only been on the market 5 days! I guess the beauty in this house to me is that is more than that, it's been our home, and I will be sad to leave my first "home sweet home" of my very own.

I know there's a way to keep people like linda johnson and lfa tai chi blog from leaving those annoying advertisements. We need to look into that. Anyway, I understand the sadness of leaving the house you put so much of yourselves into. Will the people who buy it mind if we all come back to look around and make sure the fence is still standing and the deck is holding up all right?

And that abstract art white blotch on the roof. I wonder who put that there?

I HATE LINDA, and I will never try your evil Tai Chi, John. Who would take Tai Chi from a guy named John, anyways.

I can understand the stress of change, Summer. It isn't a lot of fun. Jenny and I will be praying for you guys.

Yes! You're back! It IS a hard thing to leave your first home sweet home and all the memories that go along with it. You aren't the only one who gets emotional about that kind of thing. I look forward to keeping up with the blogs. :) Love you--
