So I am finally getting time to post about our life. I seriously dont get to check my email these days so sitting down to post about life is majorly overwhelming and a nice break.
So for those of you who dont know it, we made it to Washington....but barely. I dont know if ya'll heard about the tornados in Colorado at the end of May??? We were fortunate enough to be able to miss them by just a half hour on our way out of the state. We came upon Fort Collins right after the tornados had hit in neighboring citys. Had we not had a few delays on our way out of town we would have been smack in the middle of it. Thank God he kept us safe!!! We ended up staying the night in Fort Collins (just an hour outside of Denver) that night just to be sure all the crazy weather had passed. There were tornado warnings in effect until 8pm that night and Curt didnt really want to drive our huge truck in windy weather. We saw overturned semi's and didnt really want our truck to do the same. I dont think I would have been mad if our truck had overturned and runied all of our things but I would have been ticked because of all the work we did the day before to pack that stupid truck with the utmost care.
So Friday morning we made it an all day event and drove 19 hours to Spokane. I drove the truck too and reconfirmed to myself that I would make a great trucker! That thing was fun to drive!
We had about 5 days in Spokane before we drove to Seattle and flew out to the East Coast. My sister from across the state was here with her 3 kids to add to the chaos of just moving. And our things were everywhere so it made packing to travel and real treat. Probably not the smartest move to go on vacation 5 days after you move to a different state but none the less we had no choice at that point and had a really nice time with Sky and Suz. I will make a whole other post about that later.
We got back to Spokane on the 10th of June and have not stopped moving. I have been helping my parents re decorate their home. I have the whole main floor of their home almost painted and all last week Curt and I tore up the entryway/kitchen/dining room floor and laid tile all the way through. It looks really really nice but what a huge project it has been. Nothing is ever as simple as you hope it will be. We arent quite finished yet either. Tomorrow I need to spend the day grouting all 340 sq feet and then seal it and put all the trim back up. Next we will be recarpeting the whole house. I love projects like this so I am really having a ball but its definately hard work. I wake up early and dont stop until my body cant move anymore. One thing I hate is unfinished projects and I cant rest until its all done :) I will post pictures when everything is done.
So thats our life for now. Curt has been crazy busy with web stuff or doing little projects for me. I am leading worship on Wednesday night for the womens group, I spend as much time as possible with my nephews and family. I cant express how wonderful it is to be here. We get to see Jenn and Bill a lot too and that is just fabulous!!! So nice to be with them again. Part of me feels like Colorado was just a dream but when I have time to miss it I miss our friends a lot! Life is good! God has blessed us.
