Here we go…..

HI Everyone! I want to fill you in on what will be going on in my life during the next few days!
Yesterday the title company over-nighted the contract for me to sign, get notarized and send back! So I mean it is actually happening……I can’t wrap my head around it. I am still worried about something happening and getting let down again.  I can’t believe this is my last day to live in Oklahoma! I am scared….remember I have never lived anywhere but a 10 mile radius. That doesn’t mean I am not happy and excited but I am scared. So how is all this happening…….planning this move was like a special ops mission or something…………….

– Today I will go and pay the vet the whopping $2349 I owe them (NO joke) and I am actually taking Ralph and Abner to stay the night with my in-laws. It is going to KILL me to see them for such a short time then say goodbye again. Tomorrow my father-in-law is getting up with the sun loading my boys and will begin his 2 day journey with our U-haul. He plans on arriving Saturday around noon. I know everyone will be fine but that won’t stop me from being a wreck and missing the boys like crazy!

-Then tomorrow morning my mom and I will pick up Bella the cat and Oscar and we will make the 8 hour drive to St. Louis to stay the night. Let me say finding a pet friendly hotel that will take a dog AND a cat was a challenge!!! And I wanted to be somewhere safe so we are staying at the Hilton Busch Stadium and hopefully we can watch the Cards game from our room!!!

– Then we will get up Saturday and make the 7 hour journey to Pickerington (suburb of Columbus) and we hope to arrive around 5 or 6!!!! My mom is staying until Thursday and we hope to have a few extra hands to help us unload the U-Haul over the weekend! No idea when I will get TV or internet ( you know that will kill me, ha) so I might be MIA for a bit. And we have a team coming in to put up 1 very expensive but only 4 foot high fence. I am not sure what it is like where you live but in Oklahoma 6 foot privacy fences are the norm so this will take some getting use to!

I am not sure when I am will get to blog again…..it might be a week! But you should follow me on facebook, I am going to post a lot of pics (I hope)!! Just keep everyone in your prayers that we all make it safe and that all the animals won’t be too traumatized!

Lastly, I have to say I am sorry…….these last 6 weeks have been so hard actually the last 7 months have been hard since we started this journey.  It seems that my days were either spent wallowing, putting out fires, packing, working etc………… If I could have I would have visited every single friend of mine and I should of been better at returning calls but I have been lost in my own world. There is no excuse it is that plain and dry. My friendships in Ok wont end and I don’t plan on them changing….I just wanted to tell everyone how special they are to me. Thank you.

You know I have never really had to say Goodbye’s all my family lives here as do my friends and truly I will be back a few times a year I assume. And with my blog, email, phone and facebook things are a little easier to stay in touch. So no goodbye’s just……….until next time.
