Well, the reality is setting in that we are supposed to move in 3 1/2 weeks and we probably aren't going to be able to move together. Let me explain...we all know that we are in a crappy economy right now to be selling your house but we live in in the top selling neighborhood in Louisville right now. Actually we are a bit of a mix of Schnitzelburg and Germantown (never figured out exactly what part our street is in) so we will just say the top 2. We still have hopes that it will sell soon because it's only been two weeks and we have to stay patient and trust the Lord. It seems God is ALWAYS teaching me about patience and not worrying. On my windowsill above the sink right now I have Matthew 6:27..."Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" Yep. I sure can't. It's appropriate that I have it near the sink because I tend to start over thinking things when I am doing stuff like washing dishes or vacuuming. I could vacuum our three rooms with carpet for an hour because I just start thinking a lot! I digress though...the point is if our house doesn't sell, Justin will be moving to Raleigh on his own for a little while until our house can sell. We just can't afford two places right now. So sad for so many reasons. But my best friend is going to stay with me and Liam a few nights a week so that will be fun at least :)

Liam is doing really good...I can't believe he is 11 months already and his first birthday is less then a month away. Time flies! He is cruising around the house pulling up on everything and standing on his own for a few seconds at a time. I know he will be walking soon and I'm sure once he does he won't stop-just like his Daddy!! Lord, help me now!

First trip to Raleigh...

Last weekend Justin and I went to Raleigh, North Carolina to visit our new home for the first time. Justin has obviously been a lot lately for his interviews but I had not been yet. We left Friday morning, leaving Liam at home with his Gigi (my Mom) and the pups. I wasn't nervous about leaving Liam with my Mom, I trust her 100% but let's just say we weren't even gone an hour before we got a phone call from our alarm company saying the police were being dispatched to our house. What the?!?

Let me start at the beginning...and I will try to make it short. Justin and I have "keychain" alarm turns the alarm on and off and has a panic button. Makes it super easy when coming and going because you don't have to constantly hit a code. Makes it not so easy when your 11 month old LOVES to play and chew with your keys. Mom, Liam and the dogs came back to the house after dropping us off at the airport. We had a showing that morning at the house so Mom came in to see if anyone had been here yet and when she realized they hadn't, she went back outside to get Liam's stroller to take them all on walk. To tide him over....yes...she gave him my keys. Now Justin and I know not to give Liam our keys anywhere in the vacinity of the house but we had forgot to mention that when we left. So, to make a long story short...the police show up at my house while people are looking at and Justin and I are getting phone calls at the airport about the panic button being hit and no one can get ahold of my Mom. The whole entire story is hillarious...I was totally able to laugh about it once I knew they were ok!

Raleigh was great though. I fell in love with it and we found a great apartment. If you haven't been yet...go. Better yet, come visit us. We would love to have you :) I also rescued a puppy that we found in the woods behind the hotel parking lot...poor guy. If we lived there already, I totally would have taken him home!

Keep crossing your fingers that our house sells quickly...I really don't know if I could handle Justin being in Raleigh and me, Liam and the pups here. Have to just keep reminding myself that God's timing is pefect :)
