So, oh my goodness. Let’s just jump right into updates shall we? 

First off some people have asked when my parents are moving.  They will be moving July 25.. so in a couple weeks!

This past Monday, Trent and I were talking and we decided to extend our stay here in our apartment.  Our lease is/was coming up on July 14 and this job is lasting at least until the second week in August.  So we went ahead and made the phone calls and we got the apartment until August 11!! YAY… Well yesterday Trent gets a call and there is a job in Delaware starting up between July 15-20 and Trent and I are both on that job. Ummmm.. Great news but horrible news.  If we break our lease, we are on the line for $1,000.  I do not know about you, but that is a good chunk of money. YIKES!  We have not actually signed anything yet though, so that may be our only saving grace.  However, I mean our apartment complex went out of their way to make sure we could stay longer and not we are kind of screwing them over by saying.. oh NM. and really only giving them a 2 week notice (we do have it in writing that we are leaving on July 14 though with no new writing that we are leaving on the August 11).  Does this make any sense? So technically, there was only a verbal agreement.. but to me that is still an agreement.  SO we will just see how that shakes down because I have never been on a job when it starts exactly on time. 

So if we are moving next On July 14, that means I have one week to pack up the house.  Trent and I are leaving on a plane this Tuesday (July 3) to go to my parents house and will not be back home until Monday (July9) night.  Soooo there is going to be a lot going on. A lot needs to be figured out, but I am not worried.  My Father in Heaven will take care of the timeline.  I just have to take care of the packing! Hahaha

Have a great Saturday everyone!!!

So there is so much to tell you!  BUT here is the best of it.

So my parents had their first open house the weekend after Memorial Day.. so that would be June 3.  They only had a few people even show up, so they decided to go ahead and call in the professionals.  Well they ended up selling their house on June 13.  Literally 10 days after they put it on the market, which is almost unheard of.  They actually had two offers coming in and had themselves a little bidding war!  What a wonderful thing.  In the same week as the house sold, they also sold their car and had a Garage sale that was a HUGE success.  That was only the stuff they actually had in the garage! HAHA.

My mom is done with work at GM now.  She retired the same week they sold the house. She had a wonderful retirment party and people really went above and beyond for her. So that is awesome.  My sister is going to my parents house tomorrow (from FL) .  Well she is in MI right now, but she is staying with a girlfriend for a day or two and then going to my mom and dad’s house.  So things are just going super swimmingly.

I mean really, if you do not believe in the power of prayer, you may want to start.  There is no way that all this would have happened without an AWESOME and LIVING Christ.

So that is what is going on right now 🙂 


P.S.  My ear is all better.  Not really sure what the heck went on, but it got better on its own. ?

Hey guys,

I am so sorry to keep leaving you for long periods of time, but you have to know this is MY season.  Trent has hunting season and I have SUMMER SEASON!  We are working long days and when I get home I literally have to run in, change my clothes to work out clothes, put in 45 minutes on some stupid machine that really does not make me any more bikini ready, run back upstairs put on my swim suit (sorry kids the pillsbury dough girl does live in the apartment), run back downstairs and lay out for 30 minutes, get in the pool do some swimming…. like.. 10 minutes max, run back upstairs and start dinner, hop in the shower, go to bed. Not a lot of time for blogging because I belong to the sun. If it is nice outside, I am making my way out there one way or another. I LOVE being outside during the summer months and reading a book. It makes me a very happy camper.

My parents had their open house today.  One person showed up…. they are moving on July 25.  So we I am going to ask you dear friends, to put them once again on the ol’ prayer list. Trent and I are going home for the 4th of July and help them pack up a bit more. I am pretty torn to go back and say goodbye to my house. It is where I fell in love with Trent in.  It is where he surprised me on my graduating from my Master’s Program. He was working on the night shift and got out at 6am drove 2 hours to my house, called me at 8am to say “goodnight” to me before he went to bed (he sent me flowers the night before), and then asked me what I was doing, I said laying in bed and my dad walked in my room and said you have mail and Trent walked in right behind my dad… I cried…. and after I got done crying Trent slept. BUT it still made me feel super special that he did that.  There were many tearful goodbyes in that driveway. I came home when my best friends dad died and sat on the porch with my mom and said “how did I get to the age where our parents are dying?” she held me and we cried together as I worked up the courage to be strong for my friend. I had new cars in that driveway. I had great kisses in that drive way. I had water balloon fights in the pool and I dyed my friend Joey’s hair on that deck. My dog died in that house and I mowed that lawn. I got grounded in that house and I got in trouble on the couch in that house. We had laughs and love in that house….. BUT the good news is, we will all make memories in other houses. LIKE the new house my sister is building and the house that Trent and I will have one day with our family. It is just a house and I have those memories in my head and in pictures, but it will be missed.

MOVING MOVING MOVING TO FLORIDA!  Wanna know who?  MOMMA and PAPPA P!   They got the call yesterday and it was a wonderful and amazing phone call!  I could not tell you how happy our family is for this move. When I was praying with Trent last night, I just thanked God for taking some responsibility off our shoulders (even though my parents have never asked for anything from us) I am thankful I do not have to worry about them…. at least for a while. HA!

So now we get to see God perform some mircles and we are writing them down because it is just going to be amazing and something to remember during those down times, when ya just don’t feel God hears ya.  My parents have to move in 2 months.  That means they have to have the house sold in 2 months, in this economy, in their location!  Houses have been on the market in their neighborhood for literally years, so this is going to be a God thing.

My mom has to retire from her job, which is a huge blessing!  Her back has been failing her for a while, so to get out a job that is so demanding physically will really be a releif and they will finally be able to start saving for retirement!  Which really is wonderful news (thank goodness, they will have some money when they move into my house and I become their mom! haha j/k)

So that it is kids!  Moving on to the next stage in our lives with them. My sister will be close by and they will get be a part of at least one set of grandchildrens lives more than 3x’s a year!

When all said and done, we are so blessed!

So, I have been MIA lately and I am sorry.  We moved!  We got the go ahead on Tuesday night, we worked late  that night to finish some things up, we got to the hotel, packed, went to bed, woke up and went back into work for 2 hours, I yelled at Trent something like *I am either working today or I am moving.  I cannot do both. Do you understand what I am saying?*, we left work, drove 1 hour to our new home, moved in, I unpacked, Trent went to work, and we have been unpacking, waiting for furniture to arrive and working ever since. BUSY BUSY BUSY!

Oh, so funny!  So get this, we have xfinity through Comcast now. When we were signing up for it, Trent made sure it had the hunting channel and lo and behold it had 2 -there is a God-.  Well we have not had cable.. well cool cable since the beginning of our marriage.  Well I have been working from home and found out that there is DVR on this thing and you can pause regular tv.. really all sorts of things. Well I made the mistake of telling Trent and guess what we have been watching non-stop now?  Did you guess hunting?  Because if you did, you would be correct.  The only thing is it is literally all we are watching. Forget anything that I want to watch because it clearly does not matter, he will get in all the hunting shows he can. I mean he goes through the list and DVRS almost all of them.  The cutest thing happens though, while he is engrossed in the hunting show, he will ask me if there is anything I would like to watch.  I say I do not know and he kind of  nods his head and we continue watching hunting.

So that is all that is happening here. I do have an OVEN NOW!  So I will be doing some cooking and I will let you know how it turns out. I am stoked!

Oh Cara, you will like this. Trent is calling my toasted skin cheetah print.. He says it goes with my tiger stripes! HAHA.

in limbo

Let me first say I am writing this on my phone..so if it is not good, sorry.

Our job got pushed back until we get a permit so not apartment at the moment. We are in a literal hotel room and it is closing in around us. Haha!
In other news we got tickets to the bahamas! I could not be more excited. We are not going for a romantic get a way but we are going for Trents moms birthday. We were going to go to Vegas than realized we could go to the Bahamas for the same price.

So that is what is going on here. We have not moved, we are in a small hotel room, and we go to the baha,as in 36 days! Yay!!!

OOOO my goodness you guys! Today Trent and I went to look at the new area we will be moving too next weekend. We went to several hotels and let me tell you, they were soooo gross. Sorry people who live in NJ, but this place is STUCK in the 90’s. You guys pay a ton of money for really nothing good. Again, sorry but so true. Take it from a girl who has lived all over, your stuff is over priced. However, we found this apartment right next to the gross hotel. They do short-term and month to month leasing. YAY. It is 735 sq ft, which is HUGE to me. I mean I seriously thought I died and went to heaven, but when it is 2x as big as the place I have been living in for the past year, I guess it would be huge. *Side not, I told Trent the first house we buy is going to be so small because our version of living space has been so small* Moving on though, living in the hotel would be the same amount a month as living in the apartment, but here is the catch. In the hotel we can check out whenever we have to no problem. In the hotel if we sign a 6 months lease it is 250 more a month than a 12 month lease. You are allowed to break your lease, no problem. The only thing is you have to give a 30 day notice and you have a penalty fee of one month rent. On top of a cleaning fee that gets taken out of the security deposit. So it would only make money sense to live there for 5 to 6 months. If we stay any less time we lose out on a bit more money. UGH. Decisions decisions.

So that is what is going on over here. Just having to make a choice on what to do with our living situation. Pray that God just makes it clear for us.

Happy Friday! I got to work from home today and oh my goodness. I was so busy it was crazy, but I was in the zone! I love when work goes by so quickly like that. When I looked at the clock it always jumped 2 hours ahead, so it was super fast day.

Where are we going you ask? Oh we still do not know. The jobsite is buttoned up completely. The office trailers left this morning at 7:30am. We still have no clue where we can go. We do not know if we can go home, we do not know if we should head to the NJ office. We know nothing. SO for the time being we will continue to hang out in our hotel room , which is fully packed. So I am really trying not to stress here people, but it is literally taking everything I have to reign it in. No good.

So because we have no clue where we are going and we found out our winery was having a scratch and dent sale on their red wine, we decided to go ahead and run up there. We purchases a case of wine, then continued to go and buy 3 bottles of champagne and several more bottles of wine from different wineries. Needless to say we opened a bottle tonight. Hahaa. I told Trent, we may have no place to live but never fear….. we have wine! We sound like we drink all the time, when in reality we have a bottle of wine MAYBE once a month. Everything in moderation right?! Haha.

Ok so that is the update. Pray for me please. I am starting to get like…. well like feeling I really want to know where I am going. When it really does not matter. We have enough money in the bank, we have cars that work, we have one another and best off we have a God that knows what He is doing.

Nighty night, I will keep you posted.

This is going to be quick:  It is Thursday and we still do not know where we are going.  Needless to say a little bit… on edge. Not stressed because Trent and I get to stay together no matter what.  So at least I have him. I would just like to know if I get to go see my parents or not. Ya know?

Ok, thats it for tonight.


Nighty night 🙂  Wanna pic? Ok.

This is of me and my sister in law Lindy! We went on a hike (same hike as the pic from yesterday). Lots of fun!! Love her!
