You know how sometimes you think you have everything figured and planned out? You know how you want things to play out, and you can even envision it. Well, I am at one of those times in my life, when things are going good and my plans are falling into place, and I'm scared.

The last time I remember things going this easy for me was my life before my divorce. You know, the way you felt before that big, huge thing happened and changed everything. The way you view yourself, your life, and your future. Back when everybody kept their promises and bad things didn't happen to good people.

Well, things are going good with me and the kids. I had a plan a long time ago to move into my county of choice before Ava started kindergarten, and ITS HAPPENING. Not only that, but my sister and her family are moving too. They got the realty blessing of a lifetime, and sold their current home and bought their new home within the same week! You just don't see that happening these days. So, just like we said when we were pregnant together back in 2005, we are making that move.

Remember, with being a single mom to two small children, location is key! I am exactly 8 minutes from my parents house, 10 minutes from both of my grandparents, and wait for it....

2 minutes from my sister and brother-in-law's new place!

I think I may be more excited than Mikey is, but my sister and I wouldn't have it any other way. I mean, with 5 kids between us we need each other. We are planning on taking full advantage of her fenced in back yard and my 3 acres.

But all this just makes me nervous, like whats around the corner? I know I shouldn't be thinking this way, but I just don't want to be caught off guard again and have the rug pulled out from under me! I'm gonna keep praying , and I know God will give me peace about it. This is a great time in our lives, and I don't want to spend it being a "Debbie Downer"!

So, we are busy, busy, busy updating and repairing my new place. My brother has really been awesome with everything. He has been a blessing during this whole process, because without him I wouldn't have even considered buying this home. It is really becoming a home I can be proud of. I am taking some pictures soon, and we are planning on moving in during September. I am just so very blessed right now...it just takes my breath away sometimes.


  1. Trish, last time I remember thinking everything was just like I liked it, Dad got sick, so i know exactly what you mean. In that sentiment, you are not alone! But you can't live your life worrying like that, so we'll cross that bridge when we get there (if we ever even do get there, wherever THERE is). Anyway, I'm excited about our houses and close proximity too. And as for Mikey, don't let him fool you. He likes being the only man around even if he'd have you believe otherwise! Love you!!

  2. Well both of you made me cry when I read your blog and comments. But I'm glad you ended on a funny note with Mikey likes being the only man around!! Love you both dearly and God will be with us where ever we go!

  3. I agree Mikey thinks that Ava and Archer belong to him too!

  4. I can completely relate to this...I am recently divorced too and it seems like everytime something is going great you get smacked right in the face!! The thing to remember is that the "smack" only hurts for a moment, only stuns you for a moment, only stops you for a moment, because by now, you have learned to be stronger than anything that can try to stop you from being happy. So keep your head up with a smile in your heart and enjoy all that you have. Life is good...even when it's bad.

    PS congrats on the new home! :)
