The NEW Me!

What do you think? This will be how I look for the next month......We sold our house...We not only sold our house but we sold it too people who paid cash and then said get out! Seriously.......W.H. calls and says are you sitting down? I say great what happened now and do I need to bail someone out of jail? He says we sold our house and have to be moved out on the 28th.......Um WHAT?!?!

We have not gotten pre-qualified for another house. We havent even found one actually...We were supposed to have 60 -120 days...Right?....Well evidently not.So Sunday W.H. and I are zooming down to Sioux Falls and in 3 days we are finding a storage unit, getting pre-qualified, AND finding a house...Most likely I will also be finding a rental.I dont think we will be able to make things happen as quickly as we would like.

Funny thing about all of this is that every move we have made W.H. has had URGENT business that required him to leave for days on end leaving me in charge...Lol...WELL GUESS WHAT.....I leave for Florida in 19 days and guess who gets to handle the move? HA....HA.....HA.....

Thats probably not nice right? too bad. I cant stop laughing..It may be that I have already hit the crazy stage but thats ok..I am kinda liking the crazy stage.Dont get me wrong I am packing like crazy. But since we have to be out of the house the day after I get home he has to make sure it all goes with out a problem. This will be good for him! And it will be good for me...Hahahahahahah

BTW, did you catch that? I LEAVE IN 19 days!!!

Flat Cheryl and I are ready! We are going to ROCK this run!

I may have told you this story before but in case I havent here goes :)......So 5 years ago right after we moved to ND one of my friends here decided I should got to Disney World with her. I was raised around Disney Land and had never went to D.W. before...This was before I started running. While browsing through the shops I fell in love with a purse..It was a Dooney & Bourke with an over all princess design. UM YES PLEASE......

Well I didnt buy it. We had just moved and I was feeling like D.W. was gift enough.Something made me hold back. The next trip back I had saved my money. I was GOING to get my purse..Well guess what not a princess purse to be found. So I just assumed it was a limited edition and it was not to be mine.

The next year was when I lost my dad to heart disease. As I sat there in the hospital listening to the doctor tell us dad would still be with us if he had only been active I vowed to become active. I came home and bought my treadmill..I KNOW I have to ya'll that part. Well I was only going to run a couple times a week and 3 miles was like totally my limit.That was good enough!

UNTIL my good friend showed me RUNDISNEY.....Not only was there a Princess themed run but these chicks get to wear costumes AND Tiara's! SIGN.......ME........UP!!!!! Whoa I was twitterpated and speachless..We were too late to sign up for that year but the following year was doable! I made the vow to run the Princess...

I then started doing what I do. Making lists, scouring the internet, and basically obsessing.And what do I find??? MY D&DB Princess Purse!! Come to find out that first D&B Purse I found was for the finishers and Princess. Anyone can buy it but it represents a finish of 13.1 miles and hard work! I am so glad I did not buy it at the time. I wouldnt of ever appreciated just what it represented.

So guess what I was able to preorder yesterday! MY PURSE!! It will be waiting for me in less then 6 weeks to celebrate my finish at PHM :)........Talk about motivation. :)

By the way we could use some extra pixie dust :)..Realtor open house tomorrow and the first potential buyer walk thru!! YIKES I hate this part...

Big News For Us

As I promised I have BIG news for ya'll. I couldn't announce it before because there was some paperwork still being finalized. 

We are MOVING....This is actually bittersweet news. We have wonderful friends here and like Minot. We had initially moved here though to lessen the work load that WH had. Less work load less stress..I also was having a hard time with depression in Alaska and the move helped that considerably...For anyone that has watched the news though on North Dakota you know that the oilfield has taken over. So you know what that means. WH did not actually lessen the workload OR the stress..In fact it has increased to the point that I have been very worried about his health.

So a couple of months ago we decided enough. Of course I had my plug in for WARMER weather but he still needs some income lol...So no Florida and Disney World Annual Pass for me! Boo :(.....Its a good thing one of us has a level head....

WH has many irons in the fire and has always been such a good provider. He knew exactly what to do and applied for job with his favorite heater company. In sales of course.That man knows how to sell :)...So Feb 1 he will be working for a new company in Sioux Falls, SD.

Yes we still own a house in ND..Right now I am calling it the disaster zone. For any of you that have moved you KNOW what I am talking about. The house goes on the market on Friday so we are packing and cleaning. As soon as we have an offer we are on our way. We hope and pray that will be soon. WH will have to travel back and forth until then....So thats my news!

Its pretty rare that I will chose to sew a romper/jumpsuit type of garment. In fact there is only one other that I have ever sewn. While I ...
