The Ramblings of a Half Crazy Person

Soooo.... Jacob got a job today. He starts tomorrow. That's good. BUT last night was his last night under our roof. He will be back tomorrow evening to get all of his things and move into his new place with his friend. My heart is broken. I can't believe it. I mean, I knew it was coming... But that's my head, not my heart. It's realllllly going to hit hard tomorrow when he comes to pack up.

We now have appointments with 4 different moving companies. They will be coming out to give us estimates on moving us. Did you know that some of them offer CLEANING services???? Oh, yeah, I am ALLLLLLLL over THAT!!! LOL

We will be sending in the deposit for our house on Friday. Here are a couple of pics.

Living room

This room will be the sewing room/homeschooling room/library. The Hubby THINKS it will be his office... Umm... I don't THINK so! He can have the garage!!! LOL I am SUPER excited to have a room for all of that!! :) I wonder if I can fit all the bookshelves in there... Probably not..... LOL

One of the three bathrooms. I believe this is the one off the kitchen. It only has a shower, not a tub.

Another of the bathrooms.

The dining room.

There are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The master bedroom has 2 walk-in closets!!! Yes! 2!!!

The girls will be still be sharing a room. Cailey wouldn't be able to do without Deanna. ;) Joshua will still have a room of his own. Colin will still be sleeping in our bed BUT the 4th bedroom will be a playroom!!!! No more toys all over my room!!! WOOO HOOOO!!! No more stepping on Legos in the middle of the night!!! YIPPEEEE!!!

There's also a large laundry room. That will be nice. We have a tiny one right now. There's a cat door leading from the laundry room to the garage.

It has a gas stove, which I have never used before. I am a little anxious about that. I remember having one when I was little and my mom would tell me over and over to stay away from it because it would blow up. LOL Yeah, I'm a tiny bit anxious.....

The house has a nice foyer and the sewing room/homeschooling room/library opens off of it. There is also a door that lead from it to the living room.

I love that it has the vaulted ceilings and TONS of windows!! There are 3 different sets of french doors!! I might need some more curtains. LOL

There's a brick floor in the dining room and a stone floor in the kitchen. Pretty cool.

Tonight for supper we had a turkey! LOL We are trying to use up everything in the deep freezer.

Just over 2 wks and we will be Georgia bound. Gosh, I hope our old van will make it! Good thing that we have friends and relatives on the route down!

Well, the tooth is still acting up but is is somewhat better. I'll take what I can get!! I have still been sketching like crazy! I have filled up almost 2 whole sketch books! I'll have enough stuff for at least 5 collections before this tooth is all better! LOL If I didn't sketch like crap I would show you a few.... ;) I have soooo many more projects floating around in my head!! I want to go to Goodwill and find some sweaters to work with. I would like to make Cailey a few sweater dresses. She has one sweater that I LOOOOVE. Unfortunately she has outgrown it. We called it the macaroni and cheese sweater. LOL It looks sooo much like mac and cheese!! I am going to try turning it into a skirt when I get the chance.

I have been looking online at churches in the new area. I think I found the one we will try first. They have youth meetings twice a week and children's groups twice a week. That would certainly help the kids make friends quickly!

There's a sewing group that meets once a week at the library. I am really looking forward to that!!!

Anyway..... I need some cheering up! So, here come the funny pictures and uplifting sayings!

I am putting all my trust in the Lord. He will see Jacob through this. He will see me through this. He will see our family through this move.  I will rely on Him fully.


  1. First: Where did you get that pic of me in the third grade? Second: You're crying cause your son's leaving, I'm crying cause my son's staying! Third: LOVE your new house, I hope you're so happy there. Last: You have my button!! I didn't even know, and I've been here many times before. And you've had it a while cause it's the old one before I added the name of the blog to it. How did I miss it for so long? Observant aren't I? Well a very belated Thank you!! XOXO

  2. LOL!!!!!! You are VERY welcome!! And, yeah, it's been there for a while. LOL
    Thank YOU for making me smile!!!!!

  3. Your house is BEAUTIFUL!!! And you're off on a new adventure! Thinking of you! :)

  4. I love your house! and I hope you have a pleasant, uneventful move!

  5. Praising the Lord for you. Yep, you've raised him to know Who to follow. Because of that, and his praying mama, he has everything he needs and so do you. Also, I love you new house. It's so pretty!

  6. Thank you SOOOOOOO much, Debbie!!!!!
    It helps so much to have so many thinking of him and praying!!!

  7. Stacy,
    The house is beautiful and I know you will love it, [and if you need more curtains...I know
    the girl that can make them..yep..you!!! ha]
    My heart goes out to you, that Jacob is moving out ..This is the hardest part of being a parent. We have to let them go ...but the parent part of our heart...has such a hard time.
    we see our little boy or girl and it hurts!!!! Just know, you,your family, your friends, and us blogging friends will be praying that God watch over him, and help his mama too. When my son married and moved in my yard [our old house], It was ok, he was right there, I could see that he was ok.. But,when he graduated Blue Mountain College and took his first church about 2 hours away.. I cried,and cried,and cried..It was AWFUL...Ha. I know for you, it is really hard, because you are making such a big move at the same time.. i am sending prayers that God will be with you , and help each of you. Keep you safe and comfort you , as only He can.
    The church you found, sounds nice.
    I really like the moving service that offers cleaning..yea,yea...
    Sorry the tooth is still giving you trouble.. Do you need a root canal?? [eeeek... how horrible Judy] ..My husband is petrified of dentist,and doesnt go until he absolutely has
    praying, Judy
    ps I would love to see your sketches..I can't draw a stick man,ha.. So, you can show
    us some sketches..We want laugh, I promise.lol

  8. THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH, Judy!!! You are amazing!! You know just what to say!!
    I know that he will be OK since so many wonderful people like YOU will be praying for him. I am still going to miss him. SIGH,,,,,,

  9. Hey Sweetie, You have certainly been busy. I remember when my 1st left home. All my chicks not under my roof! How will he survive? How will I survive? God holds him in the palm of His hand. You brought him up in the way he should go and now that he is older he will not depart from it. I have stood on that proverb until I have worn footprints into it. So many are holding you and your family up! I know you will not probably be this way, but if you find yourself in Murfreesboro, TN. call Journey Pointe Church or you have my address. Would love to love on all that beautiful family.Take care and Praise God.

  10. Thank you so VERY VERY much, Regena!!!!! You are so right!!!
    And thank you SOOOO much for the prayers!!! I know that they will see him AND me through.
    As a matter of fact, we have family very near Murfreesboro! My dad is in Dickson and my Mother-in-law is in Antioch! :))
