Humpday Randoms

It's hard to believe that it's already Wednesday.  It is Wednesday, right?  Things are in such utter chaos right now, it's difficult to know which end is up sometimes.  A few randoms...

1.  First off, I must stop to say a very happy birthday to my bloggy friends Sherry and Natalie.  Hope y'all don't mind that I tell everyone today is your special day.  Happy birthday my friends!!!!!

2.  I have a lot of reservations about moving, which I've mentioned already.  What I'm not upset about, however, is leaving my job.  It's nice to hear from others who know the news (I haven't been broadcasting it for fear of there being repercussions) that they can't believe I didn't leave sooner.  Guess that's the plight of working in the field I do, right?  I adored this place and my boss in the beginning.  Guess every good love affair must come to an.

3.  Our house is a disaster.  I have anxiety.  Big time.

4.  One of our dogs is seriously going to end up being Oliver's BFF very soon.  It melts my heart.

5.  I've had a headache for at least a week now.  We need to get moved and have this over with, stat.  I'm over it.

6.  I won't get ultra political because I don't want to ruffle any feathers or offend anyone out there.  However, Michelle Obama's speech last night was beautiful.  And eloquent.  And everything I would strive to be if I had her smarts.  She brought me to tears, which never happens when it comes to stuff like that.

7.  This time next week Aunt JCC will be almost finished with her first day at her new job.  Can't wait to hear all about how things are going for her!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the week.  I am turning in our cable/internet tomorrow afternoon so if I get a little sketchy for the next few days, please don't leave me!!  I promise I'm still around.  Blogging from my phone is a tad complicated sometimes, especially with a small child.  I'm going to take lots of pictures and update from the road as best I can so please hang in there with me.  Our plan is to pick up the truck on Friday, hang around Columbia and say our final goodbyes on Saturday (hopefully we'll get to go to the game at noon too....Go Gamecocks!!) then head out early on Sunday morning, stopping in Martinsburg, West Virginia to spend the night.  If all goes planned, we'll be in Massachusetts by early afternoon on Monday and will begin our new lives then. 

I'm going to try to keep track of everyone and let y'all know how we are between now and then, just wanted to give you a heads up in case I go silent for a few days.  Have a great rest of the week everybody!!


  1. Thanks for the birthday wishes, girl! Wow, you are really crazy busy right now! I hate the chaos of moving...heck, I hated just packing up for a week's vacation! I hope everything goes well with the move. I still can't believe it is all happening so fast, and you'll be all the way in Massachusetts in less than a week. That pic of Oliver and your furry baby is too cute! I can't wait until we can FINALLY get another doggy for the boys. Eddie has been waiting since we got married, and the time has never been right. First, we were renting with no fenced in backyard (a must for me with dogs) and then our first house we purchased was small with no fence and then we moved here to Charlotte and were in a small apartment and then with kids and work and school for me, we just didn't feel that we had the appropriate amount of time to devote to a new dog. I already felt guilty about not having as much time with Jingles before he died. *Sigh* It is just one of those dreams for our future! I'll be hanging on and waiting for more news about your move, of course! :-)

  2. Best of luck with the move. Hang in there!

  3. Ugh. So pissed. I just typed out the longest comment and it got lost when I hit publish. UGH!

    Thank you so much for the birthday shout out. You are so sweet. I'm so glad we are blog friends.

    I'm sorry you're still stressed and freaking out about the move. I can only imagine how you feel. We only moved 20ish miles, I wasn't pregnant and Spencer was almost 2....and it still sucked. You ARE pregnant, you're moving across states and Oliver is a baby. Major sucky. The good thing is that it will be over soon and then, hopefully, you can relax a little.

    Can't wait to hear from you "on the road"!

  4. Best of luck my friend! All will be ok! You're strong... just keep telling yourself, "I got this!"
    I can't wait to hear about yournew adventures!

  5. I know you got this!! I will be sending up prayers for your guys safe travel, arrival, and new life! Have I mentioned how I love Oliver's chunkiness!! He is so cute! Dos is going to beautiful!!

    Remember just breathe in and out. Take one thing at a time. Looking forward to the updates!
