Y’all Aren’t Gonna Believe THIS!!!


OMGOSH!!!! OH MY GOODNESS!!!!

Well, we are moved. We are now Georgians. The moving company loaded us yesterday and delivered TODAY!!!!

So, we left Virginia around 5 pm and drove as far as Florence, SC last night. I go to plug my laptop up in the hotel room and BLEW A FUSE!!!! No power in the hotel room. SIGH… We call down to the front desk and they say to come up and get another room. As I was backing out to go to the front desk, BAM! I hit a big ole bush…. SIGH… No damage to the vehicle or the bush. SHEW!!!!!

So, we get into the new room and we let the cats out of the big box they were travelling in. They went INSANE!!!!!

This morning it takes 5 of us to try to get the cats back into the box and NONE of us were unscathed! I think I might still be bleeding!!

Anyway, we are driving down the interstate and all of a sudden Cloud figures out how to get out of the box! Then Bonnie and Pammy shoot out. We were then doing 80 on 95 with 3 cats loose in the van. SIGH……

OOOH!! And we passed a GIANT shoe driving down the road! I swear!! A GIANT SHOE!!! I made sure I wasn’t the only one that actually saw it. ;)

We are in another hotel tonight. Even though all our stuff was delivered today we have no utilities…. I will be taking care of all of that in the morning.

I have some GREAT pics of the house to show y’all!!

 

 

See the palm trees that I circled?? We have 4 of them in the yard!!

Colin is checking out the pea gravel in the driveway. ;)

 

 

 

 

My other 2 palm trees!!! :)

 

 

 

The wood underneath that circled part is cedar! It smells soooo good!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These are just a few of the pics that I took today. I will post some more tomorrow.

SOOOO tired and I still have SOOO much to do!!!

 

Praise the Lord for getting us safely to Georgia!!!!!

 

Georgia on My Mind


We are home. My goodness what a trip. Down and back in less than 36 hours…. We got in around midnight after leaving at 6 pm Thursday. I hate marathon driving. I was so stiff and sore after getting out of the van. My hands were almost in a permanent claw from gripping the steering wheel for so long! LOL

The job interview went extremely well. They reallllly want The Hubby to sign on with them. They didn’t talk numbers, though… They want  The Hubby to give THEM a figure…. So, right now The Hubby is thinking about it all. He did let them know that we would need them to pay for relocation.

He still has another offer from a different company also in GA. This one is more in the Atlanta area. The Hubby really likes the guy that he has been talking to from that company. But he isn’t sure that he would love that job. BUT we do know that they were offering at least $75,000 a year for that one. Definitely something to consider!

It’s just all up in the air. I keep praying for Him to show me His will. That’s all I know to do. Pray for His wisdom to show us the way and help us make the right choice.

Here are some pictures that I took during the trip. As usually Deanna wouldn’t let herself be photographed. :/ Both of the older boys stayed here. I was a little nervous about leaving them but since they are 19 and 16 AND we weren’t going to be gone long, I figured it could be a learning opportunity… LOL

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I do have some sewing going on. Right now I have an almost finished Halloween skirt for Cailey out of Casper fat quarters (there will be a tutorial for that). Then I will be making the Snoopy costume for my friend’s son. Then I will be making costumes for the Cs. THEN I want to make this-

out of these fabrics-

 

What do you think????

Then it will be time to start on Thanksgiving and Christmas themed things…. And a few presents…. ;)

 

 

Way Down South


Well, we are in Georgia. We just got settled into the hotel. So far I really like it. Spanish moss hanging from live oaks, palm trees…. Yep, I like it.

I did NOT like the ginormous chemical plant we passed, though… BLECK! STINKY! And we could smell it from outside the hotel room last night.

I got a couple of pictures from the beginning of the trip when everyone was still awake and the travel centers were still open…. LOL  I am hoping to get MUCH better pictures today!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Hubby is off at his interview. I hope it goes well.

The kids are still asleep. We have until 11 to check out, so I think I will let them sleep as long as they want to! ;)

I am looking forward to seeing more of the town today. It was soooo late when we finally got here!! It’s a small town. I think the website said 13,000 people. We also have 2 houses that we are planning on checking out today.

OH!! The Hubby was THRILLED last night when we saw a Krystals the next town over! I know we will be stopping there at some point today! YUCK!!! I have never been a fan. Maybe you had to grow up around them?? An acquired taste???

 

OH!! While I’m thinking about it, have any of you ever been to South of the Border??? I remember driving past it a ton when I was a kid. I always wanted to stop but we never did. :( We passed it last night and I STILL want to go! LOL  Oh, man… I just looked at their site.. Now I REALLLLLLLLY REALLLLLLLY want to go! LOL

 

I’m wearing my Hocus Pocus skirt today! :) It’s soooo comfy! I am very glad I packed it because OMGOSH! It’s going to be 90 today!!!!! Yep, I’m in the deep south, all right….. SIGH…..

Oh, great. I see that we might have rain for the return trip. We definitely need to leave earlier today to head home. I do not want to be driving that late on little sleep.

Anyway….

Have a great day everyone!!! We will be checking things out here in south Georgia and leaning on God’s will. I wonder what He may have in store for us.
