Starting to come back to life…

Hey everyone!

Oh how I have missed you all!  It will be a little while before things are totally back to normal and I have time to really respond and catch up with everyone but I think there might be a light at the end of the tunnel.

In the mean time, I thought I should take advantage of this free half and hour to give you a small update on things. 

After 10 days of searching and looking we MAY have found the perfect house for us…  We have an offer in but the house happens to be a short-sale.  This makes it a GREAT deal but the trade is that we have to work not only with the seller but also their bank and so every step is taking forever… which means for the first time in over three months we’re in a holding pattern.  I’ll let you know when we hear!

We are here safe and sound in Del Rio, TX and we’re enjoying getting to know the town and the people in it.  Although I must say the humidity is a bit harder to come to terms with! In fact it’s bad enough that we finally gave up yesterday and did a truly dreaded thing…  We went SWIMSUIT shopping.  There is a small pool here in the RV park and since it’s the off season we thought we’d take advantage… it’s the first time I’ve been in a pool since my surgery…  and before anyone asks… Pictures will NOT be coming soon!  LOL 

Ryan had his first day of work yesterday and it went well.  He thinks he’s going to like the office and that this base will be a great learning opportunity for him, though is sounds like the hours will be brutal!  But we’ve been there before and as long as he loves his job who cares?

Huh… I guess that’s it… things have been so busy that I didn’t realize that we’d been busy with only a few small things!  CRAZY!  I’ll be back with pictures and stories soon!  Sorry it’s been so long.

From out here on the border,


Yep you guessed it…

Things have not let up and my life is still insane…

I know that many of you have HUGE events going on in your lives… some good, some bad, some heartbreaking… I’ve been doing my best to skim my subs so that I at least know how to pray for you ladies who are so close to my heart… It just breaks my heart that I haven’t been able to participate and I miss you so much!

Things are wrapping up here though… We leave Phoenix, AZ for our new home town of Del Rio, TX on Saturday morning at 5am.  We’ll be driving 11 hours the first day, staying overnight and then hitting Del Rio sometime in the early afternoon on Sunday the 12th. 

As for where we’ll be living… we’re not 100% sure yet but we are currently pursuing actually buying a house…  we’re just praying that if it’s God’s will for us at the moment it will work out and if not that the doors will be slammed in our face… 

I’ll be back soon… hopefully and I’ll try to update on anything big.  Love you ladies… see you soon… and know that even though I’m not here I’m HERE!


Big Changes!

I have only a moment before my duties call me away… but I wanted to get in a quick update first!

Ryan is currently on a plane flying across the ocean… he’s left Germany for good…

He’ll be home tomorrow and I can’t wait to see him!

Ten days from now we’ll pack up and leave for our new home of Del Rio, TX.

Then the adventure of finding a place to live will begin…
