Two weeks... two freaking weeks

....Cory is leaving....

for two weeks.....-ish, give or take, more or less, here a little there a little, big or small, rain or shine....


*sigh* he’s going. Tuesday 6:40am, Delta, to Denver, and the Dallas, and then the FINAL destination....Austin, Texas. So far away... for such a long time. I'm already losing my mind (obviously, right?)

But this is for the best. We are FINALLY moving forward with our lives. It's going to get harder before it gets better right? We will finally have "the beast" back. (The name that I just right this second named his stupid broken down car, which would be a really nice car if we could figure out what was wrong with it. AAAANNND if I didn't totally LOATHE the stupid overgrown metal thing because it's costing us so much time, and money, and stress to fix. ) But then we will have 2 cars. And I can have FREEDOM... I can go when I want, and do what i want. Out of the house to the wide, wide world... of, Clearfield? But really people this is a big deal. You have no idea how excited I am to make random Robert's runs... And thrift shop runs... mmm thifting... are there even any good thrift shops here? I have no idea. And Target runs! Oh how I miss Target. Just to get out of the house and be amongst other people and women! Oh happy day.

Also, the second car here means we are another step closer to moving to Idaho. What a great adventure that will be. "Idaho? An adventure?" This is what you may be thinking. But, to be all on our own. Away in a town we don't know, with friends and new people we have yet to meet and really having to rely on each other will be a great adventure.

So... let the countdown begin.
Until Cory leaves for Idaho,
‘til I see him again,
‘til he gets another new job in Idaho,(he had to quit his job here)
and ‘til we move to Idaho and start school,
and begin this new part of our lives….
Thinking about it all right now still kinda makes me want to throw up. I don't do well with change. Change is scary, and hard.... I'm just trying to trust in Heavenly Father that this is what is best.



So in the spirit of this FABULOUS quote, that seriously made my day... here is a really funny cartoon that I found on Mother's Day

Oh! Good luck with your adventure. I would love to pick up and relocate. I'd do it in a second. Hubby however would not. I don't know if I'd chose Idaho. I'd want somewhere it never snowed!

What a fun NEW chapter of your lives.

Uhhh... any chance you want to come waste time in California...?

Sounds like a fun adventure! I'm exactly the same as you. My husband wants to move to North Carolina, (I would SO take Idaho over that in a heart beat!) and just thinking about it makes me nauseous. Change is hard, but worth it in so many ways. Good Luck!!

I didn't know you guys were moving. Where in Idaho? What's the job? It'll be a great experience. It can be hard being away from family but it can also be good. Good luck!

I am sorry your husband is leaving. That is no fun at all. At least you have your cute baby to keep you company! When are you moving to Idaho?

I love, love, love that quote! And isn't it crazy how the hardest things usually turn out to be the best things in the end? We need to catch up...next time I'm in West Point okay? We need to go out to lunch and I need to play with your amazingly cute baby!
