Still alive

Blog posts without pictures are so boring to me, but I just don't have time to upload photos. I thought I better give an update since it's been several days. For the past 3 nights we have taken loads to the new house. Usually I pack stuff up during the day, then Mark and the boys load the suburban, truck and both trailers at night. It takes several hours to load them up. I've never driven with a trailer before and I think I've been doing pretty good since I haven't hit anything yet. :o) We've been so busy that we haven't had time to cook or eat dinner so the ladies from church are going to bring us dinners several nights this week. That in itself will be a huge blessing. I'm feeling much better now....tired from all the work, but overall doing really well under the circumstances.
Once I'm done with this move and seeing Chad I will be a better blogging buddy. I hope you're all doing well and I can't wait to catch up with all of you. (((HUGS)))
Happy Birthday to my sweet Cody boy who turned 14 on Saturday. We took him to eat and he opened presents.,.but no time for a party. He still loves us and he had a good day. Love you Cody!

Happy Birthday to my wonderful sister Julie who just turned 40 today. Love you girl!

Having to move, when your preference would be to stay, is hard - I've been there! I'm glad you found time to update us. Keep taking care of yourself!

Happy Birthday to Cody and to Julie!

Sounds like you're getting quite a bit accomplished considering you've been under the weather. I've been thinking about you. It's wonderful you have such a supportive family and church.

Happy Birthday dear Cody and to your sis as well! 40 is a great age! Really!
I am glad you are feeling better...just take it a day at a time and soon you will be settled. Remember, all the hard stuff will be but a memory soneday. It will all pass...
Just hold on tight.

Happy Birthday to the birthday boy and girl!!! I know that your celebration for Cody was great!
Moving is such a hassle. Exciting, but also exhausting!
We all understand how busy you are, so get back when you can!

Now I won't take offense to "your favorite sis" crap since Julie wrote it. I know she probably is right now since she seems to be the one over there every day helping you move. So Sorry! Me with kids would not be a help. Love ya! Coleen
