The what nots!

Well OK I guess since we are on the move once again i might as well document what our family is up to in some form. And of course for all my fans out their too.Yeepers we are off, Knoxville TN. When we moved to AZ from UT both our cars were blump full and the tops as well and a huge 10'by 30'trailer and we still had to leave things behind. And we didn't to spend $2,000 in just renting a U-haul to haul mainly junk. So the decision was made, to take the bare essentials. And considering the trip in itself was going to be pricey we had a yard sale to help out with the cost. I made about 2,700$. SWEET, I know. We Kept clothes, beds, some kitchen things, and our washer and dryer. No dressers, couches,and all my years of decor hoarding. It kinda felt good to just start fresh and get rid of the junk. I didn't realize how much stuff just holds you back and that the item itself holds no value compared to the memory or the love of the person you got it from. Or the love and time i spent in painting a dresser and loving what it turned out to look like. Those memories and feelings will be with me forever with or without the things.
My family saved me and came helpe clean, pack, and get us on the road. I always said I would never move back to Mesa. I'm gonna have to eat some humble pie cause man do I miss a lot of things there. My gym!!!! What a beautiful gym that was. The nicest one here is still a 6 in my rankings, but that's OK. My swimming pool in the back yard. The easy road layout and city design, hear it's all sorts of ways to get you lost. The sun, it's mostly cloudy and always on the verge of rain it seems. My big house, big to me I guess, we are in a 2 bedroom apartment... Man talk about memories in the making. we are constantly in the same room as one another and if a door closes Mack wants to know what you are doing behind it. And on top of that we live in a "well known" pet friendly apartment complex so anytime we are outside my kids are all over anyone walking their dogs. Don't get me wrong i would rather pick a more roomy place to be, but it really has been a lot of fun getting to know my neighbors and taking their dogs on walks. And just spending every moment with my kids, we have a pretty good time together. And of course I miss my family. I didn't realize how much i was going to miss them (not to be rude, just honest). Just calling them on random days to see what they were doing and if they wanted to just hang out and not even do anything, more like laughing at the crazy things our kids would say or do and the sauce attitude they would throw. Hanging up pictures with 10 nails because we would never take the time to measure or level anything. Going to my mom's and talk about everything and nothing at the same time. Stopping by my mom's house cause I was board. Going to dinner with all the sisters. WOW! was not expecting so much emotion to come up while writin that, But yeah I defiantly miss them. But I can honestly say I am HAPPY!

This Thanksgiving we went to Lynn and Lola's and the whole Built Wright family was there. This was my first Thanksgiving to have to cook more than my usual nothing. Me and Melanie cooked from 12 noon to 4 in the morning. That's including the 5 trips we made the men take to the grocery store for us. Thankfully we are amazing cooks, and after 1 or 2 screw ups it turned out pretty amazing. HAHAHAHA!!! It was so fun watching the kids play and visiting with the girls. Then Friday I had big sleep over party for all the kids. It was SO FUN. Watching them play kinect, all their DSI's, barbies had ice cream, and watched movies, I think Ty had just as much fun as they did. You know when you see kids genuinely happy... It kinda melts your heart a little. All in all It was a GREAT GREAT THANKSGIVING! I can honestly say that it feels like my love level went a lil higher yesterday.... So full of Gratitude.
