It's 10am and I'm craving soda!

That can't be a good thing! :)

Wow, where has the time gone since my last blog on May 13th?! Lots of transitions are still going on in my life, but I'm beginning to see the light at the end of this tunnel of insanity, and it's a very glorious light! The main thing on my plate right now is the move to Plymouth. I can't wait - but unfortunately I have to. The move-in date got pushed back yet again, so it's looking like the end of the month before we get in there. I think the difficulty with waiting is knowing that I'm ready to be there - and I just can't. I've got all the furniture for the dining room, living room and my bedroom (with the exception of purchasing a boxspring and mattress for my bed!) - and it's all sitting in my storage garage just waiting for a home. A home that I'm not allowed to move in to until ... who knows when?! :) I've come to the point where I have decided I can't be upset about it anymore - it's completely beyond my control, there is nothing I can do to change it, so I need to just be content in the situation being exactly what it is. But it still bites! :)

I just learned the most wonderful news ever - that my best friend, Michelle, and her husband, Ethan, are coming to Iowa for a week - and I'm going to do everything I can to get down there and visit them! For those who are uninformed, Michelle and Ethan moved to Arizona shortly after their wedding last summer (VERY shortly after!) and that results in my best friend and I communicating entirely via email, due to the lack of cell phone signal in the middle-of-nowhere Arizona. I miss her like crazy and can't wait for her to meet the wonderful man in my life (yes, indeed, I am talking about my Monte). I'm hoping with everything in me that a trip to see her will be easily arranged. Look out Iowa .. here we come! :)

I must admit, the thing that I am not looking forward to about this move is no longer being so close to my family. It's absolutely wonderful (most days!) to come home to my brother, his wife and their two adorable kids -- what am I going to do when I live in Plymouth and don't hear the, "AUNTIE KAMI!!!!" every time I walk through the door like I do now? *SiGh* Oh baby. Looks like Auntie Kami is going to have to grab the nieces and nephews and have a weekend slumber party at her new place. It will be great! I miss the babes already, and I'm not even moved out yet ...

Alright, this thing has taken me over an hour to write (thus why I don't blog at work!) so I'm out! Expect to hear more in the near future - but until then .........

Have a marvelous afternoon!


  1. If it will make you feel better, I can yell "AUNTIE KAMI!!!" when I see you. :)
