needless to say this week was been a little wild... it may only be wednesday but monday and tuesday kept us on our toes! as i mentioned last week we were getting transferred... what i didn't mention was it was probably going to be in september. instead monday turned into we're moving. we're moving friday. we're moving to MONTANA!!! yippeee! in case you don't remember a year and a half ago when i first agreed to go on the road i was planning on moving to the Helena area. next it got all twisted and i ended up in wyoming. very different places. at the time i was devastated but everything works out for a reason and i truly believe wyoming saved our marriage. i know it sounds crazy as i type it.
our plan now: mike has to be in helena monday morning... we're planning on leaving friday night once mike gets off. we're hoping to be on the road by 9pm. our boys do better in the rigs at night so hopefully we can make it in a straight stretch. to helena its about a 10ish hour drive... 9 hours for me 11 hours for mike hauling our house. good thing about dragging our house around is we can stop wherever and get a few hours of sleep. they told mike we might make you work the week out in helena and than move you to bozeman or after monday we might just send you straight to bozeman.... okay thanks. awh the life of a tramp lineman. either way we're ecstatic! we're a little over 5 hours from home. 2 hours away from my family. perfect. it would be ideal if we stayed in montana until mike could test out, that way i could drive back and forth and oh i dunno...buy our first house!! :) woohoo. but we have faith and trust that everything happens for a reason. we have each other and our boys... we're pretty happy where ever, just extra happy in idaho's neighbor state.
the only downfall to moving this quickly is i am no longer able to make it to vegas to help celebrate my best friends marriage :( i am so bummed but will be thinking of them lots and lots. positive though we'll be close enough to come home for their wedding reception party whenever they decide! we love you guys so much and wish we could be there!!
yesterday was our second anniversary. i can honestly say our 2nd was WAY better than our first. whoever said the first year was still in the honeymoon stage must have been drunk the first year... after visiting with a few other wives we all agree, year 1 is the "lets argue about everything while we attempt to figure out this marriage business"... yeah that's about right.
we went to the Colorado Rockies baseball game last night and it was so fun! mike bought great seats... we were in row 6 right behind 1st base. unfortunately we only got to enjoy those seats for the first 2 innings. the game didn't start until almost 7 (which is wesson's bedtime) so we knew we'd be pushing him a little bit and were prepared for him to be fussy.... but we weren't prepared for him to be screaming. so we camped out in row 26 away from the crowd. it was a fun experience though... another event to cross off our colorado list!
the traditional gift for the second anniversary is cotton... notice mike's new lineman hat (35% cotton) and my sweet rockies tee (65% cotton) 3rd anniversay is leather... hahaha wonder what we'll come up with. any ideas 50 shades of grey fans?! ;)
here's our pictures from last night... stay tuned to see if we actually make it to montana.... thank you again for all of your support and happy anniversaries!! :) we love you and appreciate your prayers on our journey!
