Holding pattern

You know when you are just waiting in a holding pattern? You know that you are going somewhere and a change is coming, but as I said, you stuck in a holding pattern until the date comes.

Our move in date is the 5th so right now we are just sitting and waiting until that date comes. We have to haul the mini van off to scrap. We were supposed to do that tomorrow but Jake didnt have time to finish what he needed to finish on it so that has to wait until Tuesday. We have to finish packing up the house but we cant finish packing  until closer to the move. We have a few things packed but not that many due to the fact I dont want to be living out of boxes for the next 2 1/2 weeks. Been there, done that, aint gonna do it again.

Now back to the "Thank God for small blessings" post

We had a an issue with an old Title loan we had taken out on the Van. It came up that we owed them an extra $75 we dont know about until recently. So we sent in the payment and we got the "release of interest" and with it? A $79 check to cover changing the title over. On top of the fact since we are scraping it, we just need our current title and the release of interest paperwork. So we ended up $4 ahead.

The other small favor is it looks like Jake is going to be getting an extra 15 minutes a day at work. All the of the heads approved it, we just have to wait for final approval. Its not a lot but an extra about hour and a half a week does add up.

Then when it came to hauling off the van we were looking at having to rent a car trailer to do so. We were talking to a friend of ours and he loaned us his large flat bed to use :)

So overall I am definitely thankful for small favors

Not shadow :( And NEW HOUSE!

So after much deliberation (and about an hour staring at pictures with cookie) we have decided that Wiley is not shadow. There were a couple of confirmation things there that DONT change on a horse (like the angle of a horses shoulder. Shadows shoulder was VERY sloped. Which is why he was so good at dressage. Wiley's shoulder was more upright)

On the house news:

We are moving to Onalaska, WA (its actually 4 miles CLOSER to our jobs). Its a 3 bed room 2 bath house on 5 acres with a 24 x 36 pole barn. The house has a very open set up with a back deck and fireplace! Also the master bedroom and the kids bedrooms are on OPPOSITE sides of the house. The kids have their own full bath and we have a JETTED TUB baby!

Have I mentioned the JETTED TUB? That and we can have the dogs in the house with us. The driveway has a gate and the propery is 3/4 fenced.

We are really excited! Pray for us as we move!
