Please be patient.

I will be back soon on a regular basis.

I am in the middle of trying to get my  house ready to sell.

I am training a new manager for my business so that I can move at some point in the next month.

I am trying to not cry at the fact that I am leaving my friends behind.

I am realizing that huge changes get harder and harder as you age.  This is not as easy as it was years ago.

I am going to miss the girl at starbucks that knows my order when I walk in.  Sad, but true.

I am going to miss having friends.

I am going to miss my church.

I am going to miss the funny pregnant blond lady at the bank that beams when I walk in four days a week and asks me how I am doing and tells me how much my smile makes her day.

I am going to miss my regular customers that tell me about their lives.

The girl that waited 6 months for her wedding dress and had lawyers invovled, but got it ontime and promised me a pictures.  The guy that brings pictures of his kids for me to ooh and aah over.  The old man that tells me about his prescriptions who I convinced to try something new and is now in love with me.

I am going to miss my friends that I can feel pulling away as I get excited and get ready to move.

I am going to miss knowing the grocery store isles.

I am going to miss the comfort zone of my life.

But the good?

Husband and I get to work together at our own project.

It will be ours.

He is getting hooked up with the "chron's guru" of north america.  The guy everyone wants and Husbands doctor has connections to.

We get to start a new adventure.

We will possibly have more company as we will be in a cool big city.

We will get to set our own schedules.

We get to hire our "family" to come and network our  office and so we get to see them soon.

We are secure it Husband gets sick again.

We are following what we feel God is requesting of us right now and can't wait to see where he leads us.

I am just in a funk.  I almost cried right now hooking up all our new utilities in the rental house.  It is done though.  I worked my second last shift at the restaurant today.  They sent me home early because they said I looked so tired and needed a nap! I love my staff.

I know that this is what God wants.  I know that this is good.  I know that this is going to be incredible.

But, why is it so hard?

Please Pray!

We are taking a sudden trip tomorrow to go look at a house in the new city.  We are super excited and I have spent a lot of time praying about this house in the last three days.  It feels like this is the right house for us.  It is amazing.  You will all want to come and visit.  I will post results and pictures when I get home! It is a quick drive there and drive back. 

Please pray that this is what God wants for us for starters and that if it is meant to be? WE WILL LOVE IT!

So, everyone will know soon, but big changes are coming in our lives in the next 6 weeks.

We are in the process of buying a new business.

It is huge.



It will be a learning curve unlike anything we have ever done.

Suzie? Do you know yet?

It means we have to leave.

It means we have to sell our house and our business and move to Edmonton.

The big city.

I am not sure how I feel about it.

I am so excited I want to scream.

I am so scared I want to cry.

I am so overwhelmed with everything that is going to happen in the next year that I am having a hard time believing it is my life.

I never thought that I would do anything like this.

I will  be telling the family the deets over easter. 

I am nervous!

Is that wierd?

Please pray for wisdom and sleep and peace in all this. 

We are going to find somewhere to live this next week and are terrified!
I never wanted to live in a huge city!
Good shopping though!

Post 100

Sounds fancy, eh? I have actually posted one hundred times~

I am tired today.  A lot is going on in my life right now that I cannot share.  It is confidential.  I actually have signed legal documents saying that.  Don't bother asking.  I can't say.  I know, I know.  I am evil.  Even my family doesn't know! Sorry Jill.  You will find out when everyone else does.

It is huge though.  It is driving me nuts to not have anything concrete though and that I can't get excited and talk to people about it. 

Wow, I have now made you all curious haven't I? Sorry.  The time will come.

Oh a happy note? I booked our hotel for Hawaii this Christmas! I am so excited.  Husband and I and my father and my brother and his wife are going.  I think we are doing Maui for 8 days and then Waikiki for another week or so.  I am trying to find cool things to do and I hope that the weather is nice.  It will be wierd not having snow on Christmas, but I guess palm trees will do!

I booked us an amazing resort.  Really good price on it.  Have you ever used It is a web site that compares all other travel web sites.  By using it a lot lately, I have noticed that the cheapest site out there is  It is fabulous! I was looking at hotels all over the world and the prices are as little as 25% of some of the others like Expedia and Travelocity and such.  They also don't actually charge your card and there are no cancellation issues.  We can cancel up three days prior to leaving! I am now looking for flights.  If anyone hears of any seat sales, let me know! I hope that it is a good trip.  I have never travelled with the adult brother and it could be interesting!

Husband and I went to Hawaii a few years ago only to be called back to see dad in the hospital.  They thought he was dying (which he should have...yeah GOD!) and so we rushed back.  I am excited to go with him this time so that I don't have to worry.  We are actually even staying at the same place! How funny is that!

I should go.  I am exhausted.  I got about 3 hours of sleep last night.  Maybe 4? I don't know.  It was in small chunks.

I will leave you with a funny though

I feel sad today.

My sister and her family are here right now and we decided to go for lunch.

Just the girls.

Girly day.

We decided to go to this amazing little cafe that has been a happy place for me for a lot of years.

It was closed.


And ever.

This was the place that mom and I used to go to everytime she came to visit me.


She loved it.

I loved it.

It is closed.

Made me really sad.

I will be ok.

I am glad that I don't have to tell mom it is gone.

She would be very sad.
