Four Weeks To Go

With only 4 weeks to go, we are still not sure of where we are going to live. I have called on several houses but it is hard to find someone that will take pets. It will come. With the grace of God it will come. Hubby has finally decided on where he is going to work. He is going to stay where he is at. Thank God. He has sold 2 cars and waiting on a 3rd so he is making money.
Dad is doing better. He met another lady today that wants to go fishing with him. Finally someone that just wants to do simple things. That is what dad needs. He doesn't have a whole lot of money but still wants to go out. Maybe, with the grace of God, things are finally starting to turn around. Please keep us in your prayers that from here on out it as smooth as possibly can be.

Bad News

Dad got a phone call today that was distrubing to me. His prostate doctor called and said that his count is high so they want him to get hormone shots for the next couple of months to see if they can bring it down. I don't understand it but ok. So I got him directions to the office and he seemed to understand them lets just hope he can find it ok. Hubby is doing ok at his job but still not sure of it. I hope he is ok with it we only have 4 1/2 weeks left. It seems to be going faster now. Before long we will be HOME hopefully.

Bad Weekend

Well, it was a bad weekend. Not for me or hubby just dad. His memory seems to be getting worse. Plus the fact that he is eating something that is making him run to the bathroom. I am just glad that hubby is there to keep an eye on him. My poor father could not remember one of his favorite restaurants and what he ate. I am so glad that we are only 5 weeks away from going home. Please keep us in your prayers.

Getting Closer

I guess today I realized how close it is really getting to going home. Hubby got a new job and is really excited. I am glad but I still feel like I should be doing something. It is hard to be 400 miles away and not be by his side. I guess I didn't realize how hard it would be. I miss him so much but this is what we need to do.

Talked to dad last night and he was having a rough day. He said that he was in the kitchen and heard something make a crashing sound and it was his glasses He said that the glass in them just broke. Now he has to go and get new lenses that will cost him a couple of hundred to get. With his income he just doesn't have the extra. I hope he can work something out. I know it is rough on dad trying to keep things straight and I hope us being there will make it a little easier. Hubby says that he will go check on him and make sure everything is fine but it not like being there.

The oldest one got his cap and gown yesterday. The days seem to be flying by for him now. But his has also realized that after this the real world starts. I feel bad for him because he has just realized that now he has to make decisions on his own and it is difficult. I know he will be ok but as a mother you worry.

Another Weekend gone

Another weekend has passed and it brings us one more week closer to moving HOME. I wish the time would go by faster. Dad is getting by but I will feel so much better whn I can be there to ask the doctor questions. As the days pass I can't help but think about how much has changed over the last 10 years. But hopefully for the better and all will be ok.

The time is going by so slow now. I thought that once hubby got to Ohio that it would start moving faster and now it seems to just stand still. The house seems so lonely when I am home by myself. I guess it will all be for the better when we all get HOME. Hubby doesn't know if he really likes his job yet but at least he is working and can still look elsewhere. Dad is doing good and is glad that hubby is working and trying to find a house. It is still hard because of our animals and I am not getting rid of my dog even if I didn't just spend 400.00 on her because someone hit her with their car and drove away. I guess one will turn up when we are supposed to find it. Wish us luck and keep us in your prayers. I only worked 5 hours this week and it doesn't look like I am going to work any more this week anyways. Oh well, such is life. I can wait to get back HOME.

Quiet Sunday

It was a very quite Sunday around here. Trying to keep busy and get the house cleaned. But other than that it was uneventful. I got to spend time with the kids and then the oldest one was off to work. Hubby looked at another house and said it was OK but if we find something else it would be alright too. We still have plenty of time to look. He starts work today and I hope he has a good day. It is hard being away from him and trying to get things in order. I have another day off of work and am not sure when I will work this week. I just hope things start going our way instead of being in the dark all the time. God please bless us and keep us all safe.

Still Looking

Hubby is still looking for a house. But I know it is going to take time being that we have pets. I don't care I am not giving up my animals I have too much money invested in them. He is very excited about starting his job Monday though which is great.

Dad is doing good. He got out of the house today and got some running done. I am glad that hubby is there to watch after him too.

49 days to go

Prom Night

The oldest one went to prom last night. He looked so handsome. I can't believe that my baby is grown up enough to wear a tuxedo and go to prom. I guess this is the end of a long journey for him. Just around the corner is graduation and then shortly afterwards going off to college. Where has the time gone. Talked to dad last night and he was so surprised that it is almost time to come HOME. I am getting excited too. Hubby starts work on Monday so he is going to start looking for houses today. Hopefully he has some luck. We are going to spend the day together, me and the kids, just hanging out.

Exciting News

Well, today hubby called me at work to inform me that after one day of job searching he has a job. He gets to start on Monday. That is great news. Now that he has a job we can start looking for a house. He says that he is going to start looking tomorrow. He made a valid point you don't want to look for a place to live and tell someone that you are just moving back to the area and don't have a job.

More good news dad may have found us a house. He said that a friend of his knows of a 3 bedroom older house that will allow us to have pets. He is going to get me more details and get back to me or tell hubby about it.

Dad is in a good mood today again. He was watching Tiger Woods playing golf again. He loves watching golf and would like to play again. Hopefully he can get back into it.

The oldest one went today to pick up his tuxedo. Can't wait to see him in it. Hard to believe in less than 2 months he will be graduating. Where has the time gone. My baby is all grown up. He had to work tonight and their father said that I can't tell any of them about his job until he talks to them all at once. So I told him I would call him once they were all here. It may finally get going on the right track for a change. Something will go wrong it always does. I am prepared for it. Please God let it be smooth from here on out. Keep us in your prayers.

Another Day Another Drama

Talked to dad last night and he went to the prostate doctor. They said that everything was fine which is always good news. Hubby went for job interviews today and they all looked promising. He said that he might have a pick of where he wants to work which would be great. I worked all day yesterday and again today. There should be enough there for me to work all day tomorrow also. I am glad that it is finally picking up but is just a little too late for me to stay. Dad needs me to help take care of things back home. He is still active and going out with friends but I can tell he really wants me there to help with the bills that need to be paid and balancing his checkbook. I want to be there for him too. Well not too much longer. I pray that hubby will be able to start working soon and find us a house. Oh well prom is Friday and the oldest one is happy. Can't wait to see him in a tuxedo. Graduation is 51 days away. It is going faster now. Wish us luck.

The Start

Hubby left today at 3pm. It is the beginning of the long journey apart to get HOME. I hope we can do this. It has been hard on me. I miss him so much because for the 18 years we have been married we have not lived apart for more than a couple of days. This is going to be 6 weeks. I know we can do it but it is something we are going to have to get used to. Dad is looking forward to him being around though. At least now when he has a question hubby can go and see what he is talking about. I took the day off today to spend with hubby so I am back to work tomorrow. Thank godness.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone hope it was nice. Ours was uneventful except for the fact that the 2 oldest ones have to work today and hubby is leaving tomorrow evening to go and get started. I am going to worry about him driving by himself. I don't recall him ever driving the 400 mile trip by himself. I know he will be ok though. He has to go so he can go to his interviews and get things started for us to move HOME. Dad is doing better and he didn't know where he was going to go today. I will call him later this evening and wish him Happy Easter and see how he is doing. When I talked to him last he was just enjoing the weather and getting out of the house. I guess with the weather his spirits lifted too. It is hard to tell when it will be a bad day but for now I will enjoy the good ones.

Its a Good Good Friday

Dad has had a good couple of days. He went out with his friend the other night and has been in a good mood ever since. I am glad. He said that he would help by getting hubby some pants and shirts for him to start work. Hubby is thinking of leaving Monday evening so he can get a head start on work. I am glad everything is finally starting to work out.
