Random Updates

So my title pretty much sums up the body of my post, totally random stuff. It is 2 am here and I DID not plan this post at all. My brain is hyped up on girly movies (it is officially Valentine's Day ya know) that I couldn't seem to stop watching and the encouraging call I had with my sister. Oh and I should probably blame the dark chocolate cupcakes for my staying up late as well. Just passin the buck, I know!!

So here's an update on a couple things...

Elias's ears are getting better thanks to ear drops and amoxycillin. Each day that goes by less and less goop is found. David heads out to KS soon to find us a place to live, check out Eian's school, and meet his new boss and co-workers at the base. I am so excited for him! Eian and I continue to plug away at trying to keep things normal, normal, normal around here. He and I are so much alike it's scary sometimes!

Unfortunately, the normalcy will be ending starting tomorrow. I have to start packing! Yes, I am ashamed to say that we have a week and half before the big move and I've yet to begin packing! Not real sure why I keep putting it off. Oh I know, packing stinks! Who really likes taking items you are used to seeing everyday, or better yet, use everyday and putting them away in boxes? I've yet to meet someone who enjoys it. Also, maybe it's a little of having to finally admit that THIS (moving to Kansas) is really happening.

Now don't get me wrong, I am thrilled that God has given David a permanent, stable position after all he went through, but I was really liking it here. But I've had to soul search, and after much thinking , realized that as long as I stay focused on the Lord and our family is together, it doesn't really matter where we are.

Crazy Life, Good LIfe

My goodness I cannot believe it's been two weeks since I last posted! I guess this posting on a regular basis thing isn't going so well huh? I will admit a lot of it is lack of good time-management along with an increasingly unstable schedule as an impending move approaches.

I've been reading several different blogs, usually written by SAHM's, and many talk of having a home binder. It's simply a way of prioritizing your time at home and being more purposeful with it, kind of like how you should treat money. Oh how I need to make one of these but I have been putting it off not knowing what my new schedule will look like in the next few weeks with moving, packing, my sister visiting, etc.

So I plan to keep up with the blog at least once a week (hold me accountable for those who know me) for the next couple weeks until we settled in our new place.

As a side note for the family and friends reading this, Eian is finally accepted the fact we're moving AGAIN. He seems to be doing well with it now as am I. We both realize God has bigger plan in all of this that we cannot see.

Elias has yet another ear infection. We know he needs to get into the doctor to discuss possible surgery options but with moving it's pointless to go through all that with a doctor here. So for now we're praying we can get just one more rx of ear drops to hold him over.

David will be visiting Kansas soon to scope out our new location and find us an apartment. So please be praying for his safe travel. My sister is coming up from Brooksville while he's gone to watch the boys while I work. I know next week will be somewhat stressful and rushed but I'm still looking forward to her visit.

God is also allowing the temps to warm up a bit here for our last week in Florida. The weatherman says we should see high 60's...oh yeah beach here we come! Cannot wait. We haven't seen the beach since November and Eian commented how sad he would he be if we didn't get to go one last time before we leave. Me too kiddo, me too!
