let me explain...

the last post i wrote that i would be writing less to spend time with my family. little did i know how i would be made to do that!

our temporary living (the apartment in tulsa) doesn't have internet. it really
stinks!  to be honest - i hate it! there is just no reason to get it when we will be moving to our house at the end of the summer. the nice guy i married let's me go to panera bread every couple of days to get my fix on their free wifi :)

that's just the way it is & i will have to deal with it.... unfortunately. so my blogs will be very few until we move & no pictures.

stink. again.

we moved to tulsa (a week ago) 

we had a rough start... dirty apartment & i mean
gross dirty. hair in the bathrooms, stains on the comforters, dog hair, all the drawers & closets needed to be wiped down, the pans in the kitchen had looked used & i'm not sure they were washed... ever.

when we signed up for the furnished apartment this is not what i was thinking. i wanted to move in & have no signs of no one living there. it really grossed me out. (((i still does))) it really made me upset that i was paying them all this money & i had to come in & clean the whole thing before trying to get settled.

that same night at bedtime b started crying saying, "i want to go home" i was trying to comfort him by telling him this is our new home, we live in tulsa now but by the end i was crying along with him.

saturday was a little better. we stocked up on food & new towels (((no way was i going to use the ones there!))) that night we meet up with friends & played at the park. just hanging out, cool weather... nice & relaxing.

sunday was even better! didn't have to be at church until 10:45, didn't have to sit on the front row, no responsibilities. i little weird but it was a nice change. good service & then lunch with friends.

me & the boys are staying busy with swimming, library trips, getting lost figuring out the new town (((it would help if i could figure out how to use the GPS he bought!))), free movie, free bowling, spray grounds, free concert. (((do you get the theme... FREE!!!))) 

it didn't start out how i thought i would but by the end of the first week its all good. i like tulsa more & more. chad likes tulsa & the boys, well they like anywhere if they are getting to have fun!

i know, i know, i know we are suppost to be here & that gives me peace & makes me like this new city even more. we are in God's perfect will.

I'm so glad to hear you are doing okay-moving is rough! Especially when it's a place that is your "home" but not really your HOME! It's gotta be hard! I would have freaked out too...I am a major clean freak! But I am sure you made it the best you can and now everything will fall into place. You are such a good wifey and mother :) Praying for you during this transition-Much Love, Becky

I'm so glad it's getting better! I'm really sad we never got to meet while you were here.. I was thinking about that the other day!

Girl, I am praying for you. We are in a similar place... you're living in a temporary apartment that you're not happy with and we are living in a hotel. :) But, we are going to have amazing stories to share, aren't we?! And, you are going to love Tulsa. It was by far one of my very favorite places we've lived!!

I can totally relate! I am glad that things are getting easier and praying that you will meet a kindred spirit!!

Well that's a rough start, but it will get better. Hang in there and just enjoy hanging out with the boys!

I'm sorry that it was such a rough start, but I'm glad that it got better for you. We went through a similar experience when we were waiting for our home to be built. Btw, that is a beautiful photo of Tulsa.

Hope the moving process keeps getting better!
