OK, bloggies.

Just a couple more days of vacation recap to post. I know. I'm growing tired of it as well. But, next is Disneyland with Pa! You won't want to miss that.

Some scoop......

*House is tentatively leased. The first person flaked and so we've been showing it recently. Should know if this next option is a good one......after credit checks, etc......in the next few days. Cross your fingers.

*Move date should be late September if it goes through. While we were anxious for it to be sooner, this gives us a little more time to sort through what we're taking/selling/donating.

*Looking for townhomes/houses in San Diego to lease. People out there seem to have a problem with us not having jobs. Something about their being worried we might not make our payments each month. I thought people who lived by the coast were more laid back?

*Job search is going well for Blake. Happy to know we might have a few options. Besides standing on the highway with a picture of our "cute kids" asking for handouts, as my Uncle Bob suggested we do.

*Jack asks everyday if we're "going to Californah". I tell him we have to wait for a few things to happen. His rebuttal? "The truck is here."

*We know we're crazy for doing this. It's OK if you think so, too. Life is short, peeps. Too short to not do what you love.

In the words of the Little Engine that Could......I think I can.....I think I can.....

And, one more quote in case you missed Jenna's comment earlier. Words to live by:

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

It will all work out. You know it will. Life always does. =)

If it's meant to be then everything will happen...even the jobs. What an exciting time for your family!

Momma to the A's said...

Girlfriend, I think what y'all are doing is brave, witty, and fabulous! Life is way too short not to live it how you want to! Follow your dreams and the stars that lead you there. Life is about being happy and not wishing you did something other than what you are doing. You have an opportunity right before you and you're going for it ... who can criticize you for that???

SASS said...

So proud of you guys.
Oh Jackeroo. You never stop making me laugh. I need to call you once a day to hear his new rebuttals. I'm always left cracking up. Thanks, buddy.
Oh, and Case? The truck is here.


The Potters said...

I don't think it's crazy at all!!!! In fact, I think more people should do things like this...I kind of can't wait until the day we get to do it again. :)

Can't you move into your family's house for a bit until you find a new place to live??

Kelly W Beatty said...

I'll help you move in :). I'll be there in late September too. Actually, I may not be much help in the moving dept. but I can babysit for the day.

People think you're crazy? I think it's so awesome! I completely love ya'll's "leap of faith"

Kim said...

I love the comment! Glad the plans are in motion. I am so excited for all of you!

Heather said...

Well hurry up. I'm ready for y'all to move. I'm ready for the new adventure. The train museum in kc is getting boring. (or whatever museum it is) and also all those farms you go to...
Haha! Jk!
