November 08 Update
Boy – where to start - - - -
At the beginning of the year – my husband put in a job application for a company in Boise, Idaho. By March – we had forgotten about it - - - until they called him for an interview. They flew both of us to Boise for a long weekend so that Travis could interview and the two of us could look around! And look around we did!!! I had a lot of time to myself on Friday, while he was interviewing and looking around. I drove everywhere! It’s a nice area of the country – a little flat for what I like – but nice and OMG – I have never met such nice people! I was blown away how nice they all were! They offered my hubby the job – but in the long run – we turned it down – several things factored in (like the number of people, the lack of mountains and places to ATV, moving) and now in hindsight – it might have been better for us to just go and try it – but everything happens for a reason right?
Since we decided to stay – we started the process of becoming big girls and boys – and on June 13th – we moved into our home that we bought!!! A new, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom mortgage! Of course, during the move, I broke a blood vessel on the top of my right foot (dropped the darn gun cabinet on it) – to this day it still aches! Anyway – we have been busy, busy putting our house together.
We got to go into the infield at the Texas Motorspeedway – it was so stinking cool!!!
One afternoon I got a knock on the door – a contractor in the area noticed me watering the dirt – lol – and offered me free sod. He was at a house around the corner and ordered too much. Of course I was on the phone to my husband and we went over, picked it up and laid it that night! So – the following weekend – we went to the same sod farm and bought almost enough to finish my front yard (miscalculated by a couple rolls). It looked so nice! See - - -
