I'm happy I say! Happy!

I feel like I have written about our life in current standings in a long time.  So, since the beginning of the year we have had snow, snow, snow, and snow.  And I have been sick/in pain for most of this time too.  Most of the sickness/pain has intensified since the beginning of February.  I feel like the second half of my 20's has been plagued by illness and surgeries.  I had two pregnancies of bedrest, an appendectomy at the beginning of 2007, a hemorrhoidectomy at the end of 2008, all of 2009 was consumed by a fistula and now I am having a problem that is yet to be diagnosed. I have an appointment with my doctor again tomorrow to talk about another option of what could be going on.

The kiddos just turned 4 and a half and 5 and a half.  They are very energetic lately.  We are so ready for spring to be able to get outside and play and run!  Today they both rode their bikes on the street in our neighborhood.  They did awesome!  They both still have training wheels but they are going at a really good pace and really enjoying it!  That's definitely a change from last summer when riding their bikes was a chore to them!

Our family got some really awesome news this week!  I am going to be an aunt again this year!  My brother Keith's fiance and my bestie, Jessica, is having a baby!  I am over the moon with excitement!

We also got some really yucky news this week too.  We just moved up here to Bentonville 7 months ago.  We just got a letter in the mail informing us that the owners of this rent house we are living in have defaulted on their loan.  So, we have to move again, already.  I am so not even in the mood to begin packing up again so soon!  We have found another house already, but it doesn't make hauling all of our stuff any easier.  It goes to show that the housing crisis can affect just about anyone, whether it's your fault or not.

Another bit of good news from this week is that we sold our house in Paris!  It had been on the market for 1 year and 7 months!  We are very relieved not to have to deal with all of that anymore!

So this is me....
I'm HAPPY!  Can't you tell!  I'm gonna get through this packing and start enjoying my year dammit!!!!
