Looking Back

Well I'm here in an almost empty house. Allison & Ty stayed with my grandma's tonight so I could move everything tomorrow. I got the keys early & was able( with my daddy's help) move some stuff in this evening! As I look around it reminds me of when we first moved in here. We had well, basically nothing! Now we have so much stuff I think I'll never get moved in that house. LOL! Even though the past few months this house has given me nothing but trouble. I still feel a little sad saying goodbye. There's so many memories made here. This is the house I really actually learned to grow up in. Lets see...I learned how to cook a "real" meal here. I learned how to potty train a very stubborn little boy. How to unclog a toilet (not fun!) How to kill a bug without crying,screaming & yelling for Matt! How to handle all the bills. How to cook dinner while entertaining two hungry kids & carrying a baby on my hip! How to believe in myself but most importantly I learned that I can make it on my own. I don't want to be without Matt but I learned that I'm with him because I want to be not because I have to be! Thats the best lesson I could have ever learned. I am so happy for that. Tomorrow I will be in a new house. It's better for all of us but I'm leaving behind so many memories. Tomorrow it's time to start new one's & soon enough Matt will be home to share those with us.

LOL!!!! Ha! Court, you know what I mean. I had a lot of fun talking to you. I hope everything is okay with Matt's mom. I know it's hard to say goodbye to the memories. Well, look at it this way. At least you don't have to say goodbye to all your loved ones. And, when you miss your old house, just look out the window, or walk next door. :o) I know it's not the same...but I'm tryin' to make you feel better about it. I hope your BIL is able to help you move tomorrow. I know how overwhelming and stressful it is to do it alone. Take care and I'll talk to you again soon
Love you girl!

Great Job! I cannot even imagine moving on my own, that is why I have kinda slowed down on house hunting until Brad is home. :) You rock! Hope tomorrow goes smooth for you.
