animal chases

Well, today Brownwood was the hottest spot in Texas, the mid 90's. A man from the moving company came today to see our stuff that got damaged and I opened the door for him and my mom-in-law's terrier got out and ran. I chased him all over the streets of Brownwood. I looked like Ferris Bueller running through people's yards and alleys in my jeans and flip flops. The man was also helping me try to corner him, bless his heart. And you all know how I hate to exercise, so I about hyperventilated after sprinting for 10 minutes in the heat!
Now to Chad's story, he was out in the field and there was a bull out there. He started hoofing up dirt so Chad and the other guy took off running in a dead sprint (in their jeans and boots)for about 100 yards till they made it back to the truck. Aren't animals fun?

Life in Bwood

Well we are still looking for a place to live. We have an appointmet to look at two houses in Comanche today. We really wanted to get a house in Brownwood, but the houses are a lot cheaper in Comanche. We are just checking out all our options. Keep us in your prayers that we will find a place to live soon! And that the salon will be open soon so I can start working. I spend my days taking Shiner and Oreo outside to pee and watching them sleep. At least now Payton has baseball games so I have something else to do. Not that I'm complaining, because there will come a day when I have kids and never get to sleep in again! I also just started going to a bible study with my mom-in-law Cindy at her church. It's a Beth Moore study of Esther. I'm really enjoying it. And Chad is liking his job, but nobody will replace Jack in Pecos, or Landon in Morton.

Working Cattle

I spent my Saturday watching my father in law and husband feed and move around cows. It only took six hours. Good thing I brought a book. But i always enjoy spending the day with Chad no matter what we are doing. I like to name the cows. I named a cow Jessie because her tag is E13.

Happy Valentine's Day

Thursday, February 12, 2009

We are officially moved to Brownwood. We have been looking for a house to rent or buy. No luck so far, but we keep looking and praying. Just staying with family right now. I am so tired of living out of a suitcase! We never unpacked in Whiteface, so I am so ready to have a place of our own and get to use all of our stuff. Anyway, I know the Lord will provide and it will all work out, I just have to be patient!

Our last time in Lubbock

Since we are moving, we went to Lubbock one more time and just had a good time. We went to the movies, out to eat, and a little shopping. We also happened to drive by the Buddy Holly center, so we stopped to grab so pictures. We also went and drove around Tech.

We are moving....AGAIN!

Well, in case you haven't heard, we are moving once again. Since Chad's mom's cancer has come back, we asked to be transferred closer to her. We really didn't think we would get it because the NRCS doesn't usually do that. We we were wonderfully surprised when we found out Chad will be working in Comanche, which is about 30 miles from Brownwood. And I already have a job at a brand new salon and spa. God is good! He definately answered our prayers. Hopefully we will find a house soon! I got to Brownwood today because I am taking Laura to her chemo in Temple for the next three days, Chad is coming next weekend. We will keep yall updated.

Happy Birthday Chad!

Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband! We didn't get to do a lot since we were in the middle of packing but I got to make him a cake! And we celebrated with Chad's families a little early. I love you honey, happy 27th!
