Thank you Mom!

I know I am late with posting this but at least I am posting it now. It's a running joke in my family about cards and gifts arriving late.


I just want you to know how much you are a huge part of my life. Every up and down I have, I know I can talk to you and you will listen and understand. You have always been there for the big and little steps I have taken in my life. When Jason and I were deciding to move away, you were so sad but you also made to point to remind me that if we didn't do it know, we may never take the chance later in life. Those years apart from you and dad were rough but we still made it through. Technology really helped with that. Thank you for being there for us if not in person, at least over the phone and the computer.

Thank you mom.

Our House

is a very, very fine house. At least we thought it was when we bought it. We lived in it for a little over three years. At the time we bought it, we didn't think we would be moving so soon. We were going to be in the house for 5-10 years and then maybe build our next one. Circumstances don't always work out that way. My DH decided he really didn't like his job and started looking for a new one in Tucson. He also started looking back by our families. He found this job in Lincoln, NE but he didn't think they would want him. He applied anyway and here we are almost a year later.

With the house, we had it on the market for 6months and we didn't sell it. We decided after some major contemplating, we would put the house up for rent. We got the paper work filled out, sent back to the rental agent and waited. We got a call last night that there was someone interested and we gave the okay today. It feels like a weight has been lifted some off my shoulders. I am so glad we will be able to get some of the money back we have been putting out each month.
