Day 1 In Motel

I am about to die! When we checked into the room last night I was in shock. We have had to stay in motels a lot with this line of work and schooling my husband does. The longest time being 9 months. (the whole 9 months i was pregnant might i add) But for some reason it hit me harder then ever. I feel like I am confined and can't breath in this thing they call a room. We can't get a rent place because this job is only gonna last for 6 weeks. Then you guessed it another move. *pulling hair out*  So I am going to try and get threw this week then I think Tyler and me are gonna just stay in Oklahoma at home. I don't want to be apart from my husband but I feel that it will be the best for my son. But at the same time not.  It is a hard choice. Being I hate staying at home by myself. I know my son and I are going to miss Derek like you can't believe.  But it's not stable. It's not fair to my son to be in a small motel room eating out every meal. Not having all his things. At the same time it's not right for him not to get to see his daddy every day. Or for him not to be able to play with his daddy. Have him sing and kiss him goodnight. And so on. What to do? I could stay a week at home stay a week on the road. But again soooo not stable. To up and down. Thank you ladies for all your prayers. And please keep them coming.

So Derek came home Thursday and said we are moving. We had two days to get everything packed and moved down to Oklahoma.  It has been crazy.  I need a month to get things in order but I only have a week to do it before company comes and stays for Tyler's birthday. I have to combine things to furnish two houses in one. It is scary. But I'm just gonna do my best and it will have to work.  We got moved to Manhattan, KS. Where we hope Derek will get his hot time fast and we will be done and moved back home by Christmas.  Bad thing about it all is we are going to be staying back in hotels until we see if is going to be stable enough to get a house or apartment.  So please help me pray things will work out. I don't think I could live in a hotel with a 1 year. It was hard with just me and Derek so I can't even think of how hard it would be on him. I don't want to have to eat out every night and not have a home cooked meal for my son or us.  The stress right now is a killer.

It's Done!

My baby has grown up. He is completely weaned. Never put up a fight. It was the easiest thing. (for him) I think I was the delay of it actually. I cried the first night. Then the second. I can not believe it. Just like that it's over. I knew I wanted him weaned by his first birthday but 14 days early? And just saying 14 days till his birthday makes me cry. I have got to get it together before his party. His decorations came in the mail yesterday. We have went and looked at cakes but still are not sure for that. Then this weekend we will be doing his shopping. I still have no clue what to get him. What does a 1 year old really need? If it was up to me I would just buy him cloths, but to Derek that is a big no! It has to be toys all around. So we shall see what we end up with.

Home At Last!

 We had a AWESOME convention. I was truly blessed. Words can not describe it. A lot of changes where  made.  We also got a new pastor. I'm looking forward to the new year.  It was great getting to see everyone and visit also.  Tyler did pretty good. Although he was afraid of everybody. People is just not his thing. (so the assembly should be loads of fun)  He has been playing none stop all day. I think he is happy to be home to!  We had to stay an extra day because storms where so bad we could not travel. But that just gave us some more time to visit. I'm sad to say I didn't get any pictures=( I even took my camera but never got it out.
