So many doors have opened.

Yes, I know it has been months, since I last posted anything.  There are several reasons why.

*Business is picking up and I am so grateful for that. You have no idea how worried I was about the lack of work. 
* On top of work picking up, Chris was offered a job out of state and he would have been a fool not to take it. The money is good and we are rapidly clawing our way out of poorville. Although this job is only temporary, we both have a feeling that this will lead to other jobs in the near future.  He may put off finishing school for a year or two or he may just finish online.
* We are finally moving from this hell hole. I can not stress enough how elated I am to being mold free and in a home that actually feels like a home and not a thrown together jumble of walls and decay.  We will be moving to another city but will stay in the same county so we will not need the assistance of Branson real estate at the moment unless we decide to move their permanently.
* My oldest has decided to join the military. I am very proud and very scared for him but he is 20 years old and is adamant about his decision. I will support him all the way!
* We have decided to home school our youngest. She has not been getting the education that she needs and it is up to us, her parents, to make sure she excels in the best possible way that she can. This was not an easy decision but it is the right one.

Although my life is one big chaotic mess at the moment.  It is all proving to be the most positive direction we have had to take in a very long time.  I am relishing the packing (believe me that is something that I have never liked).  I am embraced by the madness of having to have everything ready so that when Chris comes home to help with the actual move, that is all we have to do and then we can enjoy his short stay with us until he goes back.  This is going to be a turning point and it is one that has been too long in coming.  Wish us luck.

You can't move mountains but you just need the strength to climb it. Glad your almost to the top, hope you brought the sled to coast down and enjoy the ride...:)

Jen: No sled.. but a boogie board will do. I don't think I climbed the mountain though.. I just told it to get out of my way;)

I hope that things and life are going well for you, Chris, and the kids.
It's been a very long time since we've spoken, that's my fault, I've pretty much shut down from all social interactions, save for a few Facebook posts here and there.
But I was thinking of you today, and wanted to let you know that I still think of you and care about you and your family, and I thank you for everything that you did to help me and my sons.
You and Chris are amazing people, and you deserve all the best that life offers.
