Hope everybody had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We went down to Colorado and stayed a week with Dus and Jamey. I got bad sick the first day we were there. And it continued all week long. And eventually got Derek sick. But with all that we had a good Thanksgiving. I went down to my grandma's a day early to help her start baking. And boy did we bake. Then Derek,Dus,Jamey,and kids came down on Thursday.I was a little worried because some of my family is yikes but they were on there best behavior I think. I think there was around 20 people there. My uncle Tim fried a turkey. It was so good. I ate so much. Then after we ate Jamey, my mom, my mom's husband Ben and I played Hand and Foot. It was lots of fun. I think everyone else went to the living room and snoozed. Then we did the clean up. But the night was young so we got rounded up and went to Bro. Keven's house and played games with them till who knows when. We ended up staying the night at there house. Then Jamey and I had a good idea to get up and hit the sales. So we got to asleep after 2 got up at 3:30am and went shopping. I didn't get the DVD player I went for, but I did how ever get Derek jeans at Old Navy for 14 bucks a pair. I was happy.

The whole week was fun. We got to spend a lot of time with the kids and everyone. We helped Dus and Jamey move into there house. With it snowing all day I might add. But it was great to see the snow. It made it feel so winter out. As if the temperatures all week at maybe 20 didn't feel like winter right. It is nice the Lord has really blessed them. I got to go down to Pueblo and go dress shopping with my friend for her wedding. She got her dress but we are still looking for the braids maid dresses so you know what that means. I have to go back to Colorado sometime in the near future. And you know I just hate that.Hehe I'll see if I get some pictures posted also. Well I'm going to wrap it up for now.

Bag's are packed. I got up early this morning and got everything ready to go. But sadly we aren't leaving till Saturday:( Where you ask. Not home. We are going to Colorado. Derek is off for a whole week. So we decided to go spend Thanksgiving with everyone there. Being that we have never spent any holidays with my family since we got married or even was dating. It is the same distance from Kansas to our house as to Kansas to Colorado. So it cost the same. Which is great for the most part.

We haven't been home since October 28Th and won't be back till Maybe the 1st of December. That's a whole month. Gone away from home. I don't even remember what our house looks like. And not getting to see everyone, and Ashton isn't even going to know who we are. I miss him so much. I got a picture of him today and he looked so big and grown up. Granted he looked like a tiger but still. It's so hard not being there. Ok sorry about all that but it's getting to me.

I knew what we were getting into but who actually knows exactly what they are getting into till your head deep in it. Or is it just me. You can only think what is going to be like but you really don't know. You can only prepare for so much. And with that I think I'm going to close for now.

Not much to do.

Well not a lot has happen since last time. We are still in the same place. It is very boring here. I get Derek up for work before it is light out and I don't see him till it is dark out. This makes a long day.

We did venture to the end of the world on Sunday afternoon. Let me say I don't ever care to go back there. The locals said that's were they go for a nice dinner. But the only things there was a Mc Donalds, Arby's, Burger King, Taco John and I think that's it. We stopped and asked two different people were there was a nice place to eat at and they pretty much just laughed in are face. It was pretty crazy I must say.

Today we also checked on a gym membership. They are looking into special rates for us with this job. So hopefully that will work out for we have something to do. I would then be able to go to day workout class and not be so bored. And not get as fat being I don't have normal house hold chores to keep me busy and moving. They have some really fun classes from the sound of things. So I'm excited about that. That's less hours for me to spend in the motel.
That's it for now till next time take care

Can anybody say slacker!

It has been forever. Hope all is doing well. A lot has been going on. Since I have been gone there has been some life changing things. Derek got a new job working for the IBEW out of Kansas. Doing the same work but better training. And better pay. We are now living five days out of the week in Kansas. This job requires traveling to different towns job by job. We have been able to get a new vehicle. Which has been really nice to be able to go where we want without being afraid of it leaving us. But with all good things comes bad things. We have been living out of a suitcase and motel for for 7 weeks going into the 8 week. Eating out lunch and dinner 7 days a week. I'm not a breakfast person. Some may be thinking no cooking that must be the best thing ever. Well it's not I'd rather cook. You can only eat out so many times.
I have seen more towns in Kansas then I ever cared to and it's only just begun. We were in Manhattan,KS for the first few weeks. NOT New York. It was a good size collage town so that made it nice. But know we are in Marysvillie,KS 13 miles from the end of the world, I mean Nebraska. The town is only 4,000 people. There is a Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, and the local favorite Wagon Wheel. There is absolutely nothing to do in this town. Well till next which wont be long being there is nothing
else to do. Take care
