Where in the World Have We Been???

Back in 2009, I was happily blogging away and I seemingly disappeared. What happened? Well, our lives were sort of turned upside down quickly and blogging went by the wayside. In September, Brendt (Jake, hubby, etc.) was given the opportunity to work for a company in WV in my hometown. He decided to take the position, but only as a temporary measure, as we weren't sure how it was going to work out with us. For a few months, the kids and I did the back and forth in Ohio sometimes and living in WV sometimes. Finally, after the holidays, we decided enough was enough and we were moving to WV permanantly. Brendt and I spent spent Spring of 2010 back in Ohio on the weekends packing up our house and then readying it to try to sell. We got the house on the market late spring and it wasn't until December 2010 that we had any movement. Finally, a couple decided that they would rent our house, with the intention to buy within two years. We were ecstatic!!! We would now be able to look for our own place to live. And that is where we are now! We have found a place, yet we don't move in until February 2011.

That was the short version (very short!) to what seemed like a VERY long year. Did I mention that we lived in my parents' house through this entire process? Yup, I moved my husband and my two kids in with my parents for what will be 16 months. And we didn't kill each other! How many other people out there could say the same? Now, that's not to say that we didn't have moments (we did - mostly me!). But I truly believe that I have the absolute best parents in the world. Seriously...the BEST. And I only hope and pray that someday I will be to my kids what my parents have been to me. Sniff, sniff...

I am so blessed!!!
