FOUR WEEKS…and counting

I’m moving to OKC in just four weeks. FOUR WEEKS! Wow! I am so ready though. Excited isn’t even enough to describe how I feel. Maybe supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is better…! According to, it means fatastic or very wonderful. But even that doesn’t quite cut it…but it’ll have to do until I can invent the right word. 🙂

Last week, the Lord was so gracious to bless us with over 3 inches of rain. Yes, it was gloomy and cloudy much of the week and I prefer the sunshine. Yes, it made the roads very muddy. Yes, it made my car dirty. Yes, it was an inconvenience at times. But I wasn’t complaining because it was RAINING! Hooray! The cattle will now have some grass to eat in the pasture. The lawn will be green instead of an ugly yellowish brown. The flowers will bloom and show their bright spring colors. (You know, April showers bring May flowers.) The fields will be ready now for planting crops! The farmers (i.e. especially my dad) are happy!

Last week, I worked Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday and then babysat Logan James again on Thursday and Friday. Work wasn’t too busy and Logan was as cute and cuddly as ever! Saturday I did some major shopping for my apartment with a friend from work. We had a great time! I’m all ready to move now! 😀

5 WEEKS and rain and snow…

Yup yup yup! It’s Sunday again already! 5 WEEKS…5 WEEKS until I’m outa here! And…Thursday I received my OK nursing license in the mail! WOOT! Been waiting for it for like 4 weeks. Just another piece of the puzzle that’s in place…now, it’s up to Briann to graduate from nursing school! 🙂

I’ve been working a lot it seems…last week – Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Off today. Then next week, I also have a lot of hours plus an additional babysitting job in Meade. I’m working as a nurse Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday and then am babysitting for Logan James on Thursday and Friday. No spare time! But I love it!

We actually have puddles of water in our yard! It has been raining for two days and we’ve gotten like 2.5 inches! AMAZING! It has been soooo long since it’s rained that I’ve forgotten what it looks like! It is still drizzling now. Praise the Lord!

Serena went to Colorado Friday to visit a friend and make a delivery of one of the baby kitties. While she was there, they went to see The Thorn play in Colorado Springs…and I’m pretty sure they visited some fabric shops as well! I’d bet money on that! 🙂 She was suppose to return home today…but is stuck there in a snow storm! I think she’ll be able to come back home tomorrow.

Since today is Easter Sunday, we had a breakfast brunch this morning and a special service with some wonderful music! It was very nice! This afternoon, I did a load of laundry and baked a coffee cake. And…I had to play with Scamper (the last little kitty left) because she is entirely lonesome with Serena gone. Her momma of course is being a monster because she hates it when Serena is gone and she hates me!

Typical Sunday

Awww…yes. Today was such a typical Sunday. Church this morning. Then to eat at Arby’s for lunch. Then back home, Serena and I chatted and played with the baby kittens while Dad braved the wind and cold to check the cattle (yes, he is a devoted farmer… :)). After grabbing our laptops (Serena and I that is…) and getting comfy and cozy in the living room with the warmth from the fire, we ‘computerized’ for a while. But it wasn’t long before both of us were sleeping. And I believe sometime in there, Dad also came in and crashed on the other couch. At 5:00, the tv came on and Dad watched the weather and news while eating our tradition supper of hot dogs and chips. And now, Serena is working on her taxes, Dad is doing some Bible Study, the kittens are running around the house playing with paper wads, and I’m blogging. Oh…good ol’ Sunday afternoons!

I actually did some scrapbooking yesterday for the very first time in a  very loooooong time! I loved it! I’m making a little booklet for something special and decided it would be fun to put  something together on my own rather than running to Hobby Lobby or Hastings to buy something (which I seem to have resorted to too much lately!). I only accomplished the first page but that’s a start and it’s just going to be a short mini book anyway.  Yesterday, I helped out at the annual heath fair in Meade in the morning. I was one of the blood drawers and it was fun to see and visit with a lot of people.

When I arrived back home early afternoon yesterday, I had a bit of a surprise. Serena and Dad had taken all of my stuff off of my walls in my scrapbooking room. Yes, I’ve began packing up some of my things and I’ve been moving some stuff around, but goodness gracious, I didn’t think they wanted to get rid of me this soon! 😉 I ended up cleaning out the entire room and storing it in Dad’s room because Dad is going to re-paint ‘my’ room before moving in a new bedroom set and making it into a guest bedroom. (That whole idea was actually Serena’s.) I feel like I’m going to be living out of boxes and in a disaster zone until I really do move! Oh well, SIX WEEKS and I’ll be gone! Then Serena and Dad can celebrate.

For so loooong, moving has seemed so far off. But now, reality is setting in and I can see the ‘light at the end of the tunnel.’ Just 6 more weeks and I’ll be on my way to OKC! HIP HIP HOORAY! Both Briann and I have jobs. We have the perfect apartment (and are already buying stuff to fill it with!). God is soooo good and it has been amazing to see how He has worked out everything, including all the little details! I’m hoping to get my OK nursing license in the mail soon…and then I’ll be good to go! Can’t wait for the city life!
