you know when someone asks you about something…
and sometimes that something is SO ”all encompassing” 
that you find yourself saying… “oh… it’s a LONG story”?

well… this has been a LONG hairy crazy thirteen days kind of story!



so i’ll spare you all the silly details…
& let you in on few things!

as you know we said goodbye to Grand Junction!
that was HARD!
saying goodbye to our home & it’s view… oh we will miss you SO…
our awesome neighbors… friends…
the best elementary school ever… 
all the memories that we made! 
such a short time… only a year & a half & it was time to GO!

we did our very best to soak in our last few days in Colorado…
even amongst all the chaos i think we did okay!


campbell found these really big dandelions on the side of the mountain…
i thought to myself “how perfect is that”!

after all… we were blowing wishes!
so much CHANGE… 
SO much unknown…
but still holding onto so much HOPE!


once again that ADVENTURE things pops up!
truth be told…
the whole “at a whim” adventure thing has never been MY thing!
i think i’m… we’re… doing pretty good though!
hanging in there… taking it day by day!

we did make it to Casper Wyoming… our new home!
and let me jump in here really fast and say…
they SAID it was windy here… HA… it is like a wind STORM every flipping day…
it will blow you OVER…
you think i’m kidding…
so not…
i have officially wiped good hair days OFF my list!

they do have a BEAUTIFUL lake…
snow skiing on the mountain IN TOWN…
prong horn antelopes EVERYWHERE…
you can reach out & touch the clouds… you CAN… they are SO close…
it is WAY prettier than i expected it to be…
big green rolling hills…
mountains…
rodeos GALORE!


even though i dig my heals in the ground on the adventure thing…
i AM looking forward to seeing all WYOMING has to offer!
it WILL be an adventure one way or another!


i wanted to give a quick shout out to my brother too…
hey Josh…
without him i would NOT be posting to my blog!
you see… back when were in Indianapolis i bought a Mac book pro…
yes went for the big daddy… THANKS to all you who gave me THAT advice!
the only problem… and a BIGGY for me!
with Mac… that means no Live Writer!
WHAT!
i just couldn’t deal with THAT…
SO…
mr. computer genius Josh set me up with a nifty virtual machine…
ON my Mac…
awwwwwe…
feel much better now!
IF you are NOT using LiveWriter for posting…
stop what you are doing & upload it NOW…
you will thank me & my friend shawn
who so wonderfully introduced it to me a year or so ago…
THANK YOU shawn!


let’s seeeee…
some quick little tid bits…


after much looking… we made an offer on a house TODAY…
should know tomorrow…won’t you cross your toes too!


we are HIDING our three pound dog in a hotel that does NOT accept pets…
oh YES WE ARE… rebels…
i’ll keep it secret WHERE just in case
i have an enemy out there that wants to tell on me!


i dropped my panties among other things in front of other hotel guests 
on the stairs carrying a load up to the laundry!
SO grateful for my washer & dryer… OH MY…
can’t wait to be in our home… with our things!


the girlies have gone NUTS…
i think “living” in a hotel has gone to their heads!


i am SO sick of eating out…
ughhhhh… 
i am so OVER it…
AND i think my butt will soon be ALL OVER the place too!


i am SO grateful to my family who have ALL been there to hear all my “woes”…
all my darn complaining… and STILL love me!


my iphone… USELESS in Wyoming… turns out…
this IS the boondocks!
needless to say… this is NOT good!


we are getting close to making our trip to TEXAS… YES…
we are ALL looking forward to some good ‘ol family fun!


it is now 11pm & my four year old is wired & awake… HELP…
ya THINK it was the chocolate dessert out tonight?
i better go… attempt to get the little turkey to bed! 


BIG hugs to you ALL!
i’ve MISSED you!


it IS funny… 
being away from blogging about all my total randomness…
i REALLY do miss it quite A LOT!
