I have many.
One of which is how tired I am. Just an hour ago, I had my throbbing feet elevated.
Another? Because there's been simply too much to do. Justifying spending my time on my blog or others couldn't be done.
Also, another reason why I've been away for a while, is because I've wanted to make a big announcement, but Aaron wanted me to hold off until we were sure.
And, we're sure now.
You thought I was going to write "a baby". I know. I set it up that way to TRICK YOU. Ahh, a little April Fool's joke a few days early this year. :)
Just call me the trick-meister.
Anyway, that's right. We're moving. If you don't believe me, check the sign in the front yard. It's official as of 4:34 p.m. this afternoon. I even have one of those lock-boxes on the doors. We're legit, folks.
Where are we going?? I thought you'd be curious. Well, after much back and forth, many PROs and CONs lists, millions of conversations between Aaron and I---we've decided to stick around for another few years. Yes, 'tis true. We will be Texans for a bit longer.
This is what happens when your husband enjoys where he works and who he works with. This is what happens when YOU are so happy that your husband enjoys where he works and who he works with.This is what happens when you both love his work schedule. See? This is what happens.
When you have a good thing going, especially in the job department, you don't pick up and move across the country. Not yet, anyhow.
So, we're moving about 7 minutes away. :)
No, I'm serious. It's not very far. But, that's good. We're excited. We have mixed feelings about what moving entails (leaving our darling little happy house (we've L-O-V-E-D this house), changing our ward, changing our stake (i know, crazy, right? you'd think we lived in utah!?), leaving friends and great neighbors (i know we're not moving far, but still...), packing/unpacking, keeping your house in a state of perfection, waiting game, etc. etc. etc.)----------but mostly we're feeling very happy and excited. Especially glad about feeling settled for a few years.
I don't know if you knew that we have been unsettled for a long while now. We've had so many new plans up our sleeves, it's not even funny. One was joining up with the AirForce (remember we had an assignment to Japan?). Another was planning to do more schooling. One was heading up to an opening in Oregon. Another was working in the middle of nowhere Arizona. I'm sure there are others I'd remember if I had the brain capacity, but alas... Now? It's here. Decided.

So, I'll let you know more of the 411 later. But for now, know that we are still kicking... barely. I'm wiped out after getting our house "SHOW ready" for this afternoon. Oh brother. I have a new found appreciation for anyone that has ever had to sell their house... especially with little ones in tow. Good night, nurse! No, really. It's 7:53 p.m. and I really am going to bed! hA!
So, put that in your pipe and smoke it. (thanks for teaching me that darling phrase, mom)
If you know anyone who wants to buy our cute little house, hollah.
OH, and have a Terrific Tuesday night.
