Happy Thanksgiving

Today is the day. We will be heading to Oklahoma when Derek gets off work tonight. We will have a 5 to 6 hour drive ahead of us tonight. Last night we got all packed up and loaded the suv as much as we could. So we can get on the road faster. Well you more then likely won't be hearing from me till we get back to Kansas. So I hope everybody has a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Food and Football

It was actually a good weekend or day and a half. Saturday when Derek got to the room we decided to have a football party. So we thought of what food we wanted made a list and headed into town before the game to get the supplies. We made seven layer dip and cheese dip with meat. Let me tell it is something to make all that in a motel room with no kitchen. But with the help of Gram(thank you) we managed to do it and it was so good. We haven't ate anything homemade in over a month. It has been eating out 24/7. We ended up eating the whole bag of chips and the whole thing of cheese dip in just two settings. Talk about some pigs. ha. We would have ate the other to but we didn't have anymore chips. And didn't want to go to town. The game was awesome. OU won big time. It was a shut out game. It was a good night. Sunday we stood at the room all morning watched a couple movies then went in town to do laundry and it dinner. This laundry mat was a nice one. They had pinball machines that we played the whole time. Granted it coast us way more money but it was fun. Then we ate and went back to the room. We did the sunday school lesson then cleanned up the room and played upwords. Tonight is the last night in here in this town for a few days. ah home! Hope everybody had a good weekend.

Super Cold Friday!

It was 6 degrees this morning when I woke up. Oh wait and the heater in a room was broke all night and morning. So we had it on but it was doing no good. And you know its cold if I'm saying it. So there is nothing better then snuggling up in a blanket drinking hot tea and reading a book on cold days.ah So I thought Friday was never going to get here. Only four day's left till I get to go home. But I am torn. We had planned on going to CO for Thanksgiving because we never spend Holiday's there. But then some how changed our mind and are now going to OK. I was okay with it at first but now that it is closer I want to go to both and I feel so sad about having to pick one over the other. When I talked to my grandma and told her I wasn't going to be there she seemed so sad and heart broken. Which brake's my heart. The only thing that helps is for me to think how blessed I am to have such wonderful family's. Because there are some out there who doesn't have any. Okay this is something fun or good when you don't have really anything to post about on Fridays.

1. The last band I saw live was SKILLET boy was that a long time ago.
2. What I look forward to most on Thanksgiving is FOOD, FAMILY, GAMES. (if you don't celebrate thanksgiving, insert your favorite holiday)
3. My Christmas/holiday shopping is NO WHERE CLOSE TO BEING STARTED.
4. Thoughts of COLD,SNOW,AND HOLIDAY FOODS fill my head.
5. I wish I could wear FLIP FLOPS.
6. Bagpipes ARE OKAY.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to DEREK GETTING OFF , tomorrow my plans include GOING TO TOWN and Sunday, I want to LEAVE FOR THANKSGIVING BUT CAN'T TILL TUESDAY NIGHT!

Stay warm and have a good weekend

Weekend Not So Much!

Well my weekend just flew by. Oh wait I didn't get a weekend. Derek had to work Saturday and Sunday he had class. So Saturday when he got off work we loaded up and went to Wichita. We stayed the night there and did laundry at a good laundry mat. OH wait I had never told the laundry story. In this small town the don't follow the no smoking rules. Like the big city's do. So we go to do laundry the first week we are here and the laundry place is so ran down. We didn't even know it was in business but it was. So we went in because it was late in the night and didn't want to drive to another town to do it. Anyways we get our cloths in the washer then there was people smoking then that's when we noticed the smoking welcome sign. Talk about one hot chick! I hated. What 's the point in washing cloths when they are going to be dirty before you leave.! So needless to stay I was thankful to be in Wichita doing laundry at a good place. After getting done with that we had to go to Walmart because I forgot the air pump for the air mattress. So by the time we got back to the apartment it was 12:30 it gets better. I had to be up at 4am to get the rest of our stuff from the apartment and be on the road to Topeka by 5:30am. I didn't get to sleep till 2:45. So to say the least Sunday was the longest day ever. On a good note Derek passed another test. He is one more step closer to being done. Derek let me know today that rumor going around is they wont be working any Saturday's in December so lets hope it is true. That would be so great. Other wise we will have to miss some of our Christmas traditions which will make me so upset. Well that's it for now.

New Town

After many and I mean many hours of fighting with my computer I have won. Well at least for now. Yep I got it up in running all on my own. And I am so happy I have internet again. I was starting to go crazy without it. Moving on. We are now back in the life of living in motel to motel and boy I do not miss it let me tell ya. In fact I hate it. Not only are we living out of motel but the town we are in is a rat hole. It is a very small town in the middle of Kansas. (5 hours to Oklahoma and 5 hours to Colorado.) There is no Wal-mart and the population is maybe 2,000 but that is a far reach. The people here are so rude and don't know how to drive as well. And to top it all off the town smells so bad, because of the cattle farms and feed mill things. I am a big time city girl I have no small town girl in me. With this job here Derek is working 6 days a week. So there is no going home or anywhere for that matter. Which leaves me at the motel alone 12 hours a day. I don't know what I am going to do other then go crazy. Well it's time to get some lunch. Sorry if I bummed you out.

Computer Crash Florida And Moving!

Okay first off my computer has crashed and died. So that is the reason for no posting. I have been without it for over two weeks and don't know if I can make till we get another. I am so not happy about. But there isn't anything I can do so moving on. Florida was awesome. We went to Disney four day's, the beach, and Sea World. While there we celebrated our anniversary. I have been blessed to have had three wonderful years (well for the most part;) with my husband and I more to come I hope. So that was great. Now the moving part. First day back from vacation and Derek comes home and says he is getting switched location for his job, and Thursday is our last day there. So I had two days to pack up the apartment. Boy was that fun. We had so much stuff I couldn't believe it. Things pile up fast in eight months. So now we are going to be farther away from Oklahoma. Which I am so not happy about. We will only get to go back to Oklahoma on holidays for the next year. Did I say it makes me so sick to think about that. I don't now if we will be able to rent a house or something this time. It may just be motel staying from here on out. Well that about sums it up. I need to spend as much time as I can with everyone. Being I'm never going to see them again=( Don't know when you'll here from me again. Here is just a couple of pictures. It's to hard to load them on dial up.
