Top 5

Well it just had to come down to this. People just have to say strange and annoying things to Mike and I when we tell them that we are moving. And it has gotten so bad, and so repetitive, that we have come up with....
The Top 5 things we are SICK of hearing when we tell people that we are moving.
1) "Are you all packed?!"
(Yes, we are all packed....we sleep on the floor, eat out every meal, and stare at the wall for fun.)
2) "It will be such an adventure."
(Yep, we will eat bugs and plan on swinging on vines for travel.)
3) "It will be so good for your marriage."
(Oh, I was unaware that I had a horrible marriage.)
4) "You will LOVE the church outside of Utah."
(Apparently what they say about the church being wonderful because it is the SAME everywhere, was definitely not true...shocking, I know.)
And finally....
5) (Singing) "OOOOOOOklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain..."
(Oh thank you, I completely forgot that there was a musical named after my new home, please sing it to me again.)
And as people continue to think that they need to give me advice, I will continue to brew up my mother-in-law's wonderful idea of writing a book while I am gone about "Improving Your Marriage, Having an Adventure and Living the Church Outside of Utah."
Not meant to offend anyone that may have made these comments to us.


Less than a month...

I can't believe it. Mike and I leave for Oklahoma in less than a month! The official moving date is August 9. A few months ago when we made this decision, it seemed so unreal, but now it is getting so close and I think that it is finally hitting me. I feel like there is so much that I want to do before I go, but I am running out of time. My last day of work is July 31, and no I haven't started packing yet. I really find it very funny when people ask me if I have started packing. As much as one month is not that far away, it still is pretty far away to the point that I don't need to start packing. Plus I will have the whole week before I go to pack up my things. So if anyone has moving boxes, I will be more than willing to take them off your hands. And I promise to keep my blog updated. We will miss everyone but we will be back someday!

And congratulations to my sister who is pregnant with her first and due in February!
