Waiting it out...

Well, seems like we have alot going on right now, tho we don't really. Just feels like it. Currently we're trying to start a family, it's been 16-17 months officially, and it's not happened yet. We've started testing, etc and we're working on it. Just keep us in your thoughts. Hopefully it will happen soon. Getting old. LoL. Okay, so not too old, but we don't want to wait forever. We're also waiting to hear back about a couple of job advancements/changes. Brent is up for Chief and we should hear sometime by end of July if he's put it on. We're hoping that he does. If not, no big deal, but we're really hoping and wishing for it. He deserves it. A couple of months ago, Brent was hand selected to put in a package for a job position in Tennessee. Only three are chosen to put in a package for the one position, and he was one of them. We are really praying for this one. This would put us 3 hours from family and friends, rather than 14.5 hours. So we really hope for this one!!!!

We also have a trip coming up to see family, can't wait! We have camping, fishing, horse riding, a wedding to attend, and just plain visiting family. I can't wait! We only get to see them twice a year, living all the way out here. We dont' have alot going on really, but we do at the same time, alot of waiting it out..... haha.

Family fun....

I cant' believe, my sister and her husband, and two kids and my brother showed up Sunday and just left morning. (minus my brother who is stayin behind and riding home with us later) We had a good time. Sunday they got here, we did a walmart run and came home and just sat around. Monday we didn't do much, went to town and then I watched the baby while they ran to town for a minutes, but Tuesday Brent took off work and we went to VA Beach Aquarium and VA beach ocean front. We had a good time at the aquarium.

Here is a picture of my brother, sister and I. There isn't very many photos of the three of us, so this is a keeper. Haha...

Brent and I...

But we walked down the boardwalk at the ocean front and froze our butts off!!! We walked from where we parked, over a mile, to get to Dairy Queen just to get an ice cream. Which might I add, was twice the cost is, at any other DQ. But it was good. The walk was good. Me and my darn flips, ugh.. my feet are flop burned I think. Haha, All that speed walking was too much for rubber flip flops. We had to bundle up the babies, but it was nice. I enjoyed it.

We came home and grilled burgers and hot dogs, yum. They left this morning, I hated seeing them go. But they had to. They were suppose to visit family and make their rounds, back to our home state and spend the weekend camping with us, before going back home, but they're vacation seems to be cut short. They had a friend call and say their house had been broken into, so now alot of their stuff is gone, including any little bit of a 'security' feeling, in their new home. It's so sad. I hate it for them... I really hope that this is last of bad spells there, I'd hate for anything to happen to any of them. So keep them in your thoughts.

Sunday is coming fast...

My family is coming and will be here sometime Sunday afternoon or Sunday night. We still have to clean house, I have not been very motivated, not sure why, just been in a 'don't really want to do it' mode. But I guess I better get it done! It's 1:15 am here, and he's in there playing flight stimulator on the other computer and I've been searching houses, for sale, here and there. No.. not looking to buy another house, haha.. but just checking out what our options are, if we get the TN job and have to move, and such. Goodness, I hope for selling sake, market goes up and buyers come by. Crazy how much the sale prices fluctuate on similar properties, I just dont' want to be tied to a property for a year after moving away. Crazy. Anyways, just rambling thoughts of mine. Just thought I'd blog real quick, while I was thinking of it. Before my week gets so busy and I don't get on here!

It's been awhile...

It's been awhile since I last blogged. Wow, almost two weeks, I'm not very good at this. We've been staying busy getting last minute touch up stuff done to the house, my sister, brother in law and two nieces and my brother is coming up. They should be here Sunday, they plan on staying for a few days, and hopefully the weather is nice enough we can get a day of Busch Gardens in. That will be awesome! We only get visitors once a year, living 900 miles away from family and friends, it does get lonely, so I'm STOKED, the least to say. I'm hoping to get some pics of my niece(s). I'm just hoping we all have fun and enjoy our time together.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day holiday!

(Monica you are in my wishes/prayers, and I hope things get back to normal soon for you! Everyone, keep her in your thoughts.)-Thank you.

Holy mackeral....

Ok.. so it's not a mackeral(spelling?) but it is a bass!!! We had been fishing for a few hours the other day when we'd decided to give up and go home, it was getting dark and we couldnt' see real good, so we were heading back to the boat ramp. My husband was tossing his reel out and reeling in.. and bam... !!!!

He caught a 20.5 inch and a few ounces shy of 5 lb, bass! Wow.. we've seen these suckers caught on tv and we know they exist, but niether of us, personally has ever caught one so huge. I am proud of him!!! Tho.. I want to know where mine is?
