random thoughts

Wow, it's been a bit of a while since I last posted, sorry. Too many things happening and not enough time to digest! I ended up taking a Mental Health Day last Thursday, and did not go to class or do anything around the house....just had to power down. I am a big fan of Mental Health days....
Well, we "officially" own our house now in Woodbridge, VA. The Underwriters have approved and since that is the last hurdle, we are there. Now, we just wait for the closing, May 15 and we are home owners...if my dh and I had our way, we would be on the way there now...we are SOOOOOOOOOOO looking forward to moving....
Work has been strange. You know the type of customer who brings in their kids, under 3, becuase they have to? Well, I was one of those moms as well, but I honestly don't remember my kids behaving the way kids do now adays. This week we had several moms bring in their under 3 crowd and there were so many that I just wanted to throw out of the store!! They go through and touch EVERYTHING and whine and scream and carry one...what ever happened to the word NO!!!!! When I was younger, much younger, we were not allowed to tough anything with the threat of major punishment!!!! I am not impressed with the younger genteration....
Well, things have been moving right friends are moving, one by one. The other night, I saw Barb for the last time. As much as I do it, it is still hard to say "good by".
Well, that's it for now. Just wanted to make sure that none of you thought I was forgetting you. I will do my best to keep you up dated as to our progress. Life moves pretty fast, you have to be quick to grab hold and get your share...
Until next time...

The times they are a changing...

They say the more things change the more they stay the same....hummmm what do you think? Things here have been progressing at a rapid rate. DH went to Virginia a few weeks ago, and bought a house!!!!

So what do you think?? It looks very nice and we are all very excited!! Just think of all the possibilities.

More changes happening in our is out on June 12 with graduation for ds1 on June 14. Wow...he turns 18 on June 10 and I am not sure how I am going to handle this. He has decided that he does not want to move to Virginia with us. Hummmm how do you handle this? On the one hand I realize he wants to spread his wings and be an adult and on the other hand I have to wonder is he ready? Am I ready? Are we ever ready? Oh well....

We are doing the move ourselves, packing, loading, unloading, unpacking, resettling....gotta love least this time, we are using ABF to move our stuff. We pack and load, they drive cross country and then we a deal! :)

We are officially leaving on June 20. That is only 74 days away!!!! That may seem like a lifetime..but really it's I would say the the countdown has officially begun.

I will be doing my best to post while on the road. My goal is to take my laptop with me and post at night. The kids think that I am bringing the laptop for them to use on the road because they will be so bored....they can go ahead and think that way, but they would be wrong!!! :)

In my history class, we are studying 1968 and all the happenings that year....and also how much 2008 is paraling 1968. (sorry for the spelling errors). Let's see how many similarities
we can find...
1968: Presidential election
2008: Presidential election

1968: Black leaders calling for change.
2008: Black leaders calling for change.

1968: In a controversial conflict on foreign soil.
2008: In a controversial conflict on foreign soil.

1968: Questionable leadership for the country.
2008: Questionable leadership for the country.

1968: Which direction will we go????
2008: Which direction will we go????

So, you can see it is true, the more things change, the more they seem the same.....I can only wonder what changes 2048 will bring.... :)
