Sooo, if you were a fly on the wall in my house this month you would have witnessed LOTS of crying, screaming, ranting, raving and fit throwing and that's just by ME!!!!

Yes, we have moved... AGAIN!!!!!! Shoot me now.

I tell ya, I should buy stock in packing tape and boxes.

We moved from a city and house that I loved to a town and house that I DON'T love.... Trying to be diplomatic here. ;)

We are in temporary housing, read TEENY TINY HELL HOLE. Most of my books and all of my crafting/sewing are still in boxes. WAH!!!!!!!!! But we managed to fit it all in the house, sort of.  On the bright side, since we aren't unpacking everything we are already done! LOL But the draw back of not putting stuff in storage? Yeah, we will have to repack it all and move it all again. SIGH..... Did I already ask to be shot? Can you shoot me again? Put me outta my misery!!!

The kids are all doing very well with this move. THANK GOODNESS!!! You see, we used to live here about 8 years ago. We have tons of friends and some family in the area and that helps greatly!

Oh, you are going to LOVE this. We live in such a tiny town that we (ME) had to install the cable, phone and internet ourselves! CRAZY!!! We kept calling and calling trying to get someone out here to hook us up. Apparently they only have 1 or 2 installers out here. Eventually they told us to just go in to the local office, pick up the equipment and do it ourselves. Niiiiice... We did it, though. We have cables and cords running all over but at least we are connected!

Apparently we have MICE!!! MICE!!!! BLECK!!!!! I saw evidence of mice when we first moved in but I was very hopeful that it might have been old evidence... Not so lucky. One of the cats caught and killed one the night before last. Can anyone say EXTERMINATOR???? YILES!! I swear, if I see bugs, I'm out and I'm leaving everything behind.

During this entire move all I have heard is WHY do I have SO many books??? Wah, wah, wah, nag, nag, nag. Wimps. LOL

So, I bet you want to know the juicy details, right? WHY did we move again??? Well, here ya go. The owner of the last company was a lying weasel. It took him 6 months to get our insurance and we never did get our HSA card. Then there were all the perks he promised that he never went through with. The Hubby was supposed to get a $15,000 bonus this month. All of a sudden the owner starts talking about how there will be no bonuses. WHAT??? Then there was the company vehicle that never really happened. Oh, we had one for about 2 wks and then the owner asked for it back because someone else needed it. WHAT???? Then there was the odd behavior and strange rumors. Is the company going under? Is the owner on drugs?? He started stiffing some of the parts providers (one of those providers is a good friend of The Hubby's). Yeah. CRAZY!!! On top of all of that, he stiffed Jacob his last week and 2 days of pay. We may have to get the labor board involved. The Hubby was afraid this would happen, he had watched him do it to a couple of other employees.

I am so thankful that The Hubby has so many job opportunities. We are never stuck in a bad situation. It involves moving long distances but we don't have to take crap. ;) Besides, living in so many different places builds character. You get to see more of the country, meet new people, expand your horizons. Trust me, I should know! I've lived in 6 different states (or is it 7)! I've moved more times than I can count. Shoot, I went to 11 different schools when I was a kid and that doesn't count bouncing back and forth between the same schools. LOL

Wish me luck!


  1. You deserve the highest of fives for installing your own cable and internet!
    I'm sorry you moved again but I am impressed by your attitude... not to mention your handy mad skills lady!
    I went to 8 different schools as a child and it was tough but I learned the best lessons from the adventure.
    I hope you can break into some of your supplies soon.
    May you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with good friends and family near.

  2. I do wish you luck. I know what it's like to live in a place you wouldn't necessarily want to be living, but at least you have friends and family there.

    Hope you get a great house.


  3. I hate moving! We did it a year and a half ago and I never want to do it again. Ever.
    I'm glad the kids are taking it well. You can never have too many books, especially with kids around!

  4. Oh, man, Stacy. You are one tough cookie. I'd probably be in the fetal position in a dark corner by now. Hang in there...things will look up soon.
    And don't listen to anything they say; one can NEVER have too many books. Never.
    Maybe another cat or two???

  5. AWWW!! Thank you so much!!!!
    I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, too!!! <3!!

  6. Thank you!!!!
    Yeah, I wouldn't want to do it again, either. LOL AWFUL!!!!

  7. LOL!!! Thank you!!! Yeah, we could definitely use another cat or two. MICE!! BLECK!!!!

  8. Oh man….how do you handle all these moves? I think I would go crazy! I envy your strength for dealing with all of this!

  9. THANK YOU!!!!! I think that maybe I am well beyond crazy by now and that's how I survive it all. LOL

  10. Oh Stacy, you have been through it. Thank goodness for all of the books! No shooting; I love your positivity. We are going thru a few changes ourselves, so I get the job part. I'm crossing my fingers that you'll find your next house soon. Remember, your home is where that cute family is. Hang in there.

  11. Thank you!!!!!! I will definitely remember that. It's what makes all of this worth it. ;)

  12. You could just move to Kentucky and hang out with me. Just saying, it would be a lot easier. haha

  13. Stacy, sending prayers for you.. I know this is so stressful, especially during the holiday seasons, and all your stuff packed away.. Hope you get another house soon, and get to stay a looooooooooooong time..[ha].. And that you really get to loving the town??
    SO sorry that Hubby's last job turned out so bad.. That is just terrible. Hope this job is much better.
    also, proud the kids are handling it so well.[They always handle things better than us grown]
    Are there any fabric stores there??????? sure hope so..[just take you a visit there. It will
    make you feel all better. SMILE!!
    Sending prayers..

  14. Thank you SO MUCH, Judy!!
    I am adjusting. Slowly.... LOL
    There is a fabric store here. I haven't been able to bring myself to check it out yet. LOL They are supposed to have over 6,000 bolts! I just hope that they aren't all quilting cotton! LOL
    THANK YOU, AGAIN!!!!! <3


I <3 comments!! Thank you so much for taking the time! :)
