You Got to Move It, Move It

(title inspired by Jonah's favorite movie theme song)

We packed up, rented a big truck, and moved to Illinois a couple of weeks ago. Jonah was a big help and loved riding in the truck with Daddy. Now Jonah can spot a Penske truck from a couple of blocks away!

We are so glad to finally be here without too many mishaps. Our truck ended up not working well and had to be replaced, fortunatly we realized that before we loaded up more than the dryer. And then we had to wait several hours for them to bring us a new one (I guess it takes some time to tow a 26 foot truck from Joplin). But that was no battle for our 16 friends who showed up to pack us up, they had all of our junk loaded in two hours!

And we are now safely settled in my parents house and our things are in Stanbery Storage (my parent's garage). Jonah and I are trying to keep busy while Jake continues the job hunt!

We can we reached at our old cell phone number so give us a call (we won't make you move our stuff)!

Sweet and Sour

My blog is back after a longer than expected break. My break was due not just to busyness but to my lack of "sweet" stories. Sometimes life seems like a list of funny antics about your family that you forget the "sour" moments. Except when sour moments seem to prevail over the sweet ones. And the sour ones aren't quite so fun to share. I want to forget the fact that we sold our house, quit our jobs, and moved back home without a noteworthy plan. It makes me feel even more irresponsible to write all of that down. But, how can we enjoy the sweet ones without the sour ones? Our misfortunes and mistakes are a part of life too, they help to make up our life just as much as the blessings that come our way. So, "Tales of a Stay-At-Home Mom is back, sour moments and all!
