"The Time Has Come" the Walrus Said...

To talk of many things....of dogs and boxes and packing tape...of Michigan and the Kings!

I'm a nerd.

It is time to make the move. I can't believe it. I'm actually going to Michigan. I don't really think it is real yet. My office is cleaned out and I have my list of stuff to make sure I get in the car. After so much anticipation and waiting Kody and I will finally be together again! Our little family reunited! Two months is a very long time to be away from anyone you love, but especially a spouse and a baby dog! I think Bailey might have a little doggy heart attack when she sees Kody this weekend.

Next time I check in it will be from up north. I'm excited to blog about all of our adventures. I see cross country skiing and ice fishing in my future!

Signing out from Oklahoma for stop Big Ten country.

I got a little choked up typing that...

It Finally Happened...

Our house is SOLD! Last Wednesday we had a showing about 6:45 in the evening. Bailey and I just decided to go for a walk during that time so we could spy on the visitors. They were there for over thirty minutes. Good sign. They had a little boy probably about a year and a half old. Precious. Thursday night they made an offer. Friday morning after countering twice we accepted. Saturday all the paper work was signed. We hope to close around September 22nd.

What does this mean for me? I'm finally making it up to Michigan! I'm so excited to be reunited with Kody. Honestly, the time table could not have worked out better, which I knew would be the case. Kody had a very busy first two months and while I don't think it is ever "better" for us to not be together, I am very glad he did not have to worry about me being alone in a new place while he was working. Now he feels more established, he has made friends, I will have friends, I have a job and I have miss Bailey. We have a lease on a one bedroom apartment until the end of September. We hope to find a rental home near the hospital we can be in by the end of the month! That is top priority when I get there.

Thank you to everyone for all the prayers, sweet emails and phone calls during the last few months. It has been crazy, demanding, frustrating and rewarding all at the same time. God continues to take care of us like He always does. We never doubted for a minute that He would not pave the path for us, we were just little anxious about the time line. :)

In other news, Kody and I are going here in October for a little R&R and celebration! We will be going to my cousin's wedding in Fort Myers after. A whole nine days in Florida. I will be in heaven!

Bye Bye Baby

She sold today.

After twelve glorious years together, the little red Acura has found a new home. I know she will be loved and cared for. I can't believe this day has come. I never thought I would have a car so long, but I'm glad I did. We had a lot of good times:
  • Car dances
  • Drive-thru scavenger hunts
  • Car chases
  • Driving to the practices and games and swim meets...
  • Dates
  • Fights
  • Sing-a-longs
I know a car is just a car, but this car was with me during some pretty big times in my life. I wouldn't have wanted to do any of it with any other car. Good luck little red Acura! May you live long and prosper.

If you have a favorite memory of the little red Acura please share in the comments.
