We are finally here. We got in late last night. Today we went to church and we've been unpacking ever since. I think we finally got things the way we want them. We have a few more things to get and organize but I think we set. I start work tomorrow and it hasn't yet set in. I feel like I should be doing something to get prepared beside setting up "house". I'm a little apprehensive about tomorrow though. You know the stupid things. Am I going to befriend someone...am I going to have someone to sit with at lunch. I feel like I'm back in middle school...anyway. I have to end this for now. Someones trying to get on the phone which means I need to get off. More tomorrow...wish me luck everyone!

Today is the day that we're moving. The day I've dreaded for many. I've postponed it long enough and the day has come for us to finally make the move to Nashville. It's time to choose life. While reading a book by my favorite author I stumbled upon a verse that I want to claim for our move. It's found in Deuteronomy 30:11-20. It talks about choosing life over death. God says that what he's commanding us to do is not difficult. We don't have to ask how we have to do it we just have to choose. He's set it before us today and we just have to grasp it. If we choose life and we obey him, love him, and keep his commands then we will live and increase and the Lord will bless us in the land we are about to enter. It's my prayer that I wouldn't be scared any more or be nervous. I just pray that God would bless us as we are about to enter into the next stage of our life. I pray that I will meet a Friend at Dell. I'm so nervous about meeting new people while at the same time of learning something new. Make this an easy transition God. Prepare a friend for me God. I need you in this move to go forth and prepare what lies ahead. Let us lay everything at your feet and may you bless us as we embark on this journey.

Yes...my house is finally clean. Too bad we have to be moving for it to be this way. It really looks great! I'm not looking forward to moving though. I know it's what I have to do but I'm going to go kicking and screaming. I'm kidding...I won't be that dramatic! I have to do what I have to do , right!?! I just know that tomorrow and Thursday are going to be extremely hard and I'm not looking forward to them. Tomorrow I'm going in to church for the last time to drop off my phone and help Adriene out with a few things. When I pull away I know I'm going to lose it! My mom is doing better but it;s going to be awful to leave her. I don't even want to think about it. I can almost feel myself counting down the days to when I'm home again! I can't wait. I start work on Monday and it going to feel crazy. I'm already getting very nervous about having a real job. I just pray that I blow everyone out of the water with how good I do. I really want to do well not only for me but for my family. I want to make my parents ecstatic that I'm doing so well. I want to really do something big and I know that big things are on the horizon. I just can't wait for things to get big...well...maybe I can wait a little. More later...probably from Nashvegas!

Well, we finally made it to Nashville...sort of. We flew here yesterday and we're leaving tomorrow morning. Wen we get home we've got to pack, party and part. I know that this will be a tough transition but I know that God has great things lined up for me and the family. I'm going to hate leaving my mom. I know that we will certainly keep in contact but it's always nice to be able to go over to mom's after a bad day. I'm dreading the goodbye already. I'm still focusing on getting things packed before I let myself think about things at Dell. I did have a meeting over there on Thursday and I'm confident that I'm going to do great there. It's just getting my heart to go along with it. I know that I'm going to do this for my girls and for Nate but I can't help but think off all the things I'm going to miss out on. I can't let my mind wonder there though b/c then I'll get depressed and and it will cause tension for Nate the horizon...I feel it! I have to cut out for now...it's already midnight in Columbus so I have to transition myself back to Ohio time and get some sleep. I probably will either write before shutting the computer down or when we get here. Wish us luck and Nashville..here we come!

Today is extremely hot...so hot that I don't want to even think about going to lunch therefore I'm not! Bad excuse I know but I'm wearing black pants today and I know I would just roast! We are getting close to moving! 10 packing days to go before our moving date. I can hardly believe it but I better get with it because it's going to be here quick. We flying out on Wednesday next week due to a meeting I have in Nashville on Thursday. We're flying back on Saturday morning and packing the rest of the stuff before heading back down south. Boy, the next few days are going to be CRAZY. I have to try not to think about Dell right now because that will get me stressed out and all nervous. I'm just thinking about the move right now and then I'll think about Dell. I kind of wish that we had a few weeks in between when we move and when I start to at least get a break. I feel like I'm going to be so worn out from moving that I'll be emotionally checked out when I start my job. I'm not quite sure I'm ready to jump in with both feet!! Ce la vie! That's it for now. I'll write more later. Hopefully things won't be so hot! :)

Well, to make a long story short...we're headed to Nashville. Do I have peace about it...not entirely. I'm trying to stay positive but I know that this opportunity will be the best for us now and in the future. I just have to hope and pray that God hears my crys for the things that I need for my girls. It's going to be so hard to leave everything that we know and most of all my family. My mom isn't doing well with the decision. If she were more positive about it I know that I would feel better. I just hate that she's acting the way that she is. The heat doesn't make things any better. Our house isn't air conditioned so needless to say everyone is agitated, me being the most. With the heat and boxes everywhere I feel like I'm going to lose it at any minute. It also doesn't help that Aiva is on the verge of me classifying her as ADD. Sometimes she's way over the top and I'm about ready to look on-line for medication for her. Of course I'm kidding but she's driving me crazy. Maybe it's a good thing that I'll be working full time. I feel like she's getting hard to handle. I don't want to wish this precious little time away but I'm excited for her to be in school so she can get rid of some of this energy! SSOO, the next few weeks are going to be insane. We going to Nashville for a brief vacation (if that's what you want to call it!) and then we head back to make the final move. I just hope that we'll be able to have our insanity once this is all over. I just know that I'm going to be an emotional basket case. Lord help me now...God knows I need it! OK, enough complaining. I'll end this now but maybe the next time I write I'll either be in the midst of packing or just need a venting session...or maybe both. God help us all!!
