Good Time

I am on my way home. 12 hour drive just in case you are wondering. I had a great time. Tyler loved everybody. And got way spoiled as usual. We went to the zoo,aquarium,park, and a toddler amusement park. He loved every place. He ran every which way. Poor kid was worn out by the end of each day. I got to vist with some old friends also. I ate way to much at my favorite places and probably gained 25pounds. Got to do some shopping with my mom which is always great. I have a ton a pictures from out there but im not gonna mess with them on here. They are on FB if interested. I can't wait till we get to go back. I'm hopeing to be back for thanksgiving. I have a 12 hour drive today. Got about 5 hours left. Then I get to spend tonight and tomorrow morning packing and cleaning to move back home for good! Super excited about that.

Praise The LORD!

Tears of JOY! I am beyond words. The lord is so good. Derek got the JOB. We are gonna be home for good starting in September. Me being bummed out was just the devil because he knew what was coming. I have been on my knees more then ever this past week. Thank your Lord. For answeing my prayers. Lifting my spirts. I feel a huge weight lifted. A normal life I don't know what to expect. But I am super excited. It's been four plus years since I've lived in my house.

Colorado Bond

It's not NC. But I will take it. Derek is going on storm work somewhere on Monday and will be gone a week or more. So my mom and grandma are driving to OK Sunday to get Ty and me! I am pretty excited about getting to go and visit. Maybe I can clear my head out with some fresh CO air. Of course I am going to miss hubby like crazy and I wish he was going with me. But what can you do. It's one of the areas where work controls him in a so to speak manner. But I'm not gonna get started with work junk.  This is a happy post! I look forward for everyone to see and spend time with Ty. He has grown and changed so much since we last was out there. We got a couple of ZOO trips already planned. And I hope to go to the mountains and go fishing. I miss getting to do that.  I also just talked to my Dad and he said the fair will be in town. So Dad has already planned on taking Ty to the fair. To ride some rides and look at the animals there. It's gonna be loads of fun. I have also talked with two of my best friends from school and we have set a play date up for the kiddos.Then a girls night out and the kids with there grandmas is the plan. Side note: It is so crazy that all my friends are in relationships and have kids. We are so grown up! I remember us back in middle school and kids are self.  WOW

This and That

 First off I am supper bummed about not getting to go to the Assembly this year. But with the way things are work wise it was just not possiable this year:-( I am super glad they will be live streaming though.  We have held onto the we still have time it could happen. But that has run  out. So we will just start planning for next year.  It seems I am bummed out with life right now in general. I want to be home and have my hubby work a normal 40 hours a week.  Be able to plan things in advance. Instead of the day before. Go back to school.  And relax on weekends and go to the lake on the boat. We have not had the boat on the water in a year. That is ridiculous. I have been busy on weekends cleanning the house. Going threw each bedroom and cleanning and throwing things out.  I finally got all of Tyler's baby stuff took down and put up. I am redoing his room now. All his 12-18months  cloths in totes and labbled. The only room I have left it the dreaded office/craft/music/collect all junk room. This room is so scary I don't even want to atempt it. I want to put a pad lock on it and never open the door again. lol Maybe it's not that bad. But still bad enough.

We are still waiting to hear back on the job. No news is good news right? We want the job so bad. I told Derek last night I'm not sure what we are gonna do if he doesn't get that job. He will soon be working 7 days a week 12hours a day. Things will have to change. Because I can not handle this job right now. I get to spend two hours a day with him. Even worse Tyler only gets to spend two hours with him. I don't get any interaction with people. I am beginning to loose my mind. Plus I need a break here and there. I know I should be thankful he has a job but this is a bit much.  If we don't get a job at home we will more then likely have to move else where. Hawaii is booming with work and the offer they are giving lineman right now is really good. I just don't know if we could do it. That would be huge. But we are gonna have to sit down do some serious praying and talking about the next step in life. Cause right now I am at a loss as to what to do with it right now.

Well my boy is TWO. And you can tell. It's like a switch. And a very bad one at that. I mean he has given me more trouble then I don't know what. His fit throwing is gonna be the death of me. I feel like all I am doing is disciplining him 24/7 now. Then he has been locked up in the house because it is so hot.  I have made homemade paint and play dough to entertain him. And do something new with him. We also have been coloring a bunch of pictures. We have built all we can build with the Lego's. I am out of ideas. Indoors with a 2 year doesn't work out well. We go outside about 8 in the evening for an hour. He runs his little heart out. Comes back in still pouring sweet. This heat is got to go!
