A Very Quick Update on the Move

Hey All...

Here's a quick update on what's been going on since my last post. 

Well....we are moved in for the most part. 

I still need to go back to the old house and clean, clean, clean.  

Lots of cleaning...
I wish I had the pictures to show you how much of a mess we all made while living there for 4 years. 
 Those pictures will have to wait for another post.

I was also thinkin'...
Boy how much STUFF do 10 people need.  

I don't see myself as a clutter-bug...pack rat...
I am always ridding my house of stuff....

Actually, to much stuff makes me hyper-ventilate. 

I've been having a bit of moving anxiety lately.  
I get these waves of panic. 
Thank God they don't last long.  

Oh...and please don't worry about me...
I am not depressed or having panic attacks. 
but you can pray though

I think it's a mixture of the normal moving blues mixed with hormones of an almost 40 year old.  
can you believe I'm turning 40 in December?  

I still feel like I'm in my 20's.

I'm going back tomorrow to move the last of our stuff and then cleaning like a mad woman. 

Then coming back home (my new home) to unpack and put my in-laws' home back into order.  

I feel so bad.  
You should see this place with boxes of our stuff all over!

I couldn't even find my mother-in-law. 
Finally....I found her underneath a stack of boxes!!

So my little place is quite quaint...

Did I mention Donnie and I have our "own" little place separate from the main house?
I am so thankful for this little place.  
I'll show you later exactly what it looks like.  
 You'll have to wait and see!  :)

Ok gotta run...and crawl into my bed waiting in my little bedroom.

I can totally relate Chris... moving is never easy for me. I think it all boils down to the fact that women are 'nesters', and when their nest is disrupted (especially after 4 years), it creates an unsettled feeling with a bit of anxiety mixed in. I do think it is normal. I pray you will get over those very quickly. I am sure once you finish cleaning up the old place and can then just focus on the new chapters in your life, things will settle.

I like the sound of your new separate quarters! Can't wait to see piccies!

Looking forward to hearing more as you are able to post.

Bless you dear sister!

ps. I wanted to let you know that the less we have of our own, the more our reliance increases on the Lord. Many people couldn't cope with the position you're in and that says a lot (of good things) about you. So many people have their trust in their home, finances, etc, and when we don't have those things, our faith and trust in Him soar. It has too... because He become all we have (besides our family of courses). It really is a wonderful position to be in. I hope this encourages you because I know it's true.
I woke up thinking about you this morning. I figured you were very busy with all the moving and packing! So glad to know you are alive and well! Can't wait to see pictures, wish I could be there to help you clean!

love and hugs
Get those all those helpers to help you!

I pray that all will go well and you will get everything done.

I'm praying for you. I'm glad your happy mostly. I'm glad that after so many children you still feel in your twenties. You would baffle my mother if she could here you say that. She has always told me that more kids will make you pretty much waist away faster. I just tell her that's okay. :)

Love you Chris,

Oh wow are you still in Jax? You 40? WHAT???? Honestly you make 40 look good girlfriend!!! It's that young spirit that will keep you young forever<3 How sweet is that..your very own lil love nest! Can't wait to see pics;D Hang in there with the clutter...I am the same way...too much makes me anxious...every has it's spot in my eyes lol.

Every time I move I get a little "blue" - I think it's seeing my life in boxes, so to speak, and not feeling settled and able to function the way I normally would. I like all my ducks in a row...all the time! However, life is not always like that! Ha!

How wonderful that you have your own place, separate from the main house!
Hello!!! My name is Samantha, but most people call me Sammy. Just wanted to let you know I am following your blog. I have become good "online friends" with Moriah and Tsavah. They are very sweet girls. We are friends on our blogs, facebook, and gmail. I have really enjoyed getting to know them. ~Sammy

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
