Never say never....

I have totally been M.I.A. and not even just the blogging world, to almost everyone, everywhere with everything! Hayden of course keeps me swamped, super busy, on my toes, whatever you want to call it. I love that boy, he is so sweet. I love getting him up in the morning and feeding him his breakfast and he will cuddle and "talk" to me on my shoulder for a good 15 or 20 min. I wish he would never grow out of that.

But, on with the purpose of this post....So of course my day is full of little boy/baby things but Cory and I have recently made quite a huge decision.

WE'RE MOVING!


..........to Idaho.... Wah wah wah.....Idaho Falls to be specific.


Sorry to all you Idahoans or whatever you’re called. Or whoever loves and has a passion for Idaho. But I HATE Idaho. Ok maybe not hate, but seriously jaded for sure. I always swore I would never, ever, EVER live in Idaho.... BUT... here we go on this new adventure I guess.

I’m trying to trust in my Heavenly Father and know that this is the right decision and that it won’t be forever. 3 years tops. I can do that right? And Idaho Falls is only 2 1/2 hours away from Utah. Yes, I can definitely do that.

Idaho Falls is super cheap as far as cost of living goes, and there are many opportunities there for Cory and I to go to school. Cory has already interviewed at an Idaho Falls hospital to be a transporter, and has applied for an Idaho Falls police dispatcher job. We will know Friday if he got the job at the hospital. I'm so grateful that he has been able to find some decent paying jobs to apply for in this crap-ola economy. There are also are a few schools that have Autism programs if I choose or need to work. My brother, sister in law and my nephew also live in Idaho Falls so that’s good I will have some family there. So hopefully it will all work out. I don't do to awesome with things that require change or things that are out of my control... So I'm pretty much a stressed out mess. This is the right decision...this is the right decision....phew; I don’t know how many times I’m going to have to say that.

So first things first...Cory needs a job. Second, somewhere to live. Third, lots and lots of packing. Fourth, we really need to get Cory's car fixed. (Yes it’s still in Texas, ugh, that’s a whole other painful story.) And fifth, Hayden has his 6th month check up and shots June 29th. I really don’t want him to be off on his shots so we will be around somewhat until then. My goodness, so much to do....

So lots of "fun" but definitely exciting things going on at our house.
(Please pray for me that I don't slowly go insane :) )
I will keep you posted on our trek to Idaho....



Love you all! I hope you are all enjoying this heat! I kinda love it, it reminds me of living in Fresno. If anyone wants to do a park date with me and Hayden let me know! Heaven knows I need some serious girl time.

Never say never- this cracks me up now.

As D reminds me (constantly)- who would have thought that I'd be LDS and a military wife.

Life has so many surprises!

I am excited for you guys. I am sure you will like Idaho. I am glad you will know somebody down there too :) You are brave, and a great mommy. I don't know if I could ever move away from my family?? I am kind of a wuss :) But good luck with the move I wish I could help you pack and get ready to move!!

Jacob and Emily said...

I'm so happy for you guys. What a great new chapter of your lives. Megan you are so fun to be around you will make many friends and just love it there.

Kami and Spencer said...

Megan! My fellow future Idahoan! We are moving to Pocatello in July. Maybe we can get together while we both live there and complain about how we miss Utah!
Ha Ha!

Ive said NEVER to that very same thing. Scott's family lives in Idaho Falls. And so does some of my family. So we are up there a lot. It really isn't that far. But good luck! Heavenly Father will bless you!

Necia and Joe Shumway said...

oh my gosh you are moving to Idaho????

Jeff and Ashley said...

I think it is awesome! I LOVE Idaho... Aubrey Asper and I used to go on road trips to her grandmas in Rigby when we were in high school, and we always had so much fun!
I think is is good for young little families to move out on their own away from parents.... it makes you stronger as a couple and you get a chance to be "just you guys"! Jeff and I will be moving in a year though, so maybe you should ask me if I still feel the same way about it when my times comes to move away from the only place I have ever lived... UTAH! :)

CORRECTION!!!!!! Eastern Idaho SUCKS! We hated Eastern Idaho, excluding Island Park. Now Boise is paradise, night and day, heaven and hell difference. You'll have to come for a visit one weekend, we'd love to see you! (Sorry to all you Eastern Idahoans, but I think Dante was right in his vision of the inner circle of hell - up to your neck in ice all year long!)

That is way exciting news!! Idaho isn't that bad. I lived in Boise for 5 years, but it is further away then Idaho Falls. I would love to go to the park with ya:)
