New Teenager

So our Triple C turned 13 about 2 weeks ago!!!  13 - another teenager in the house.  Heaven help me....:)  Nah...he's a good kid!!  We love you much Triple C!!!  Hope your 13th year is your best yet!

(And he is most excited about his new mountain bike - which is going to get LOTS of use once we are back in Wyoming!  WOOHOO!!!)

 Now the rest of us just need mountain bikes so we can ride along with him!!!  Fun!

Monday's Melody: Punch Brothers

So we went to Wyoming for a little house hunting - no luck. Expensive....a lot more so than Nebraska.  Even then - still no house. 4 out of 5 of our favorite houses had synthetic stucco - no thank you!!!  Beautiful houses - but at that price there are some sacrifices I won't make - like the entry from the garage MUST come into a mud room - one that is big enough to catch shoes, hockey gear, backpacks and coats - as well as the laundry.  One house had a laundry closet in the living room - and right next to said closet was the door in from the garage - right onto the carpet - no tile, no closet, just door onto carpet - what a wreck that would be!!!!!!!!!!  And the kitchen in that house was so bright and beautiful!  I also have to have a bright studio space - sound frivolous - well I plan on putting a lot more time and energy into Star Hitched Wagon and if I am going to be spending many hours a day in my studio  - it needs to be a good one - not a back corner no window in the dungeon tiny office space! (yes this describes the office space in Steve's favorite choice)  Wahhhh.........

Then I come back to a house that we have let get to cluttered.....and now I have to get this house ready for put it on the market...and it makes me want to cry a little - yes I am having a pity party - I promise it will be quick.  Just so much to do

Yes I know people do it all the time.  I'll be fine - I'll get it all done and then I can breathe....I just don't remember being so overwhelmed last time - but that was a fast move - maybe I didn't have enough time to be overwhelmed.  And it wasn't just me.....and that house wasn't as big and we weren't in it as long...makes a difference.

OK - I'm done - but if I am not around a lot - this is why....(cause I will be crying while painting and scrubbing and organizing!!!)

Oh but it will all be so worth it once we are closer to the Big Horns and family and friends!!!

By the way - it is a beautiful day here - so that does make me smile!!!  :)  How about in your neck of the woods???

Still sick - but here's the big news....

So I went to the doctors this morning because I am actually feeling the same if not worse I am now on antibiotics for a sinus infection and bronchitis!!!  Have I mentioned I hate being sick....thank goodness school was canceled today - I would have felt horrible calling in sick to work again.  By tomorrow I will have been on antibiotics for 24 hours - so I should be good to go - crossing my fingers.  Anywho...enough about sickness!!!
Let's move onto the exciting Curry news......

(I thought the photo was fitting since he is celebrating and this is in Wyoming - Dayton not Gillette - but still close)

We are moving back to Wyoming!!!  Not back to Sheridan - but to Gillette this time around!  We will move after Macey graduates and the boys finish the school year up.  Most of us are thrilled at the idea - Macey is a little sad because she has now decided to stay in Nebraska for college and we will be 10 hours away.

When Steve put in for this job her plans at that time were to attend school in Montana - but she has since changed her mind.  Funny - this girl of ours - she is always telling us how she can't wait to get out and away from us - I would never figured her to be weepy at the idea of living without in turn makes me very weepy.  I have assured her that we will skype and call and email and text multiple times a day - and we will visit and she will visit - and it will all be good!!!  She is only a flight away!!  This spreading your wings and flying thing sometime hurts a bit - I remember it all to well....
But this really is good news....we have wanted to be back closer to the mountains - back to a slower pace - to the lifestyle we were used to - camping, fishing, hiking, hunting, and closer to family....and this was our chance - the quality of life will be so much better.  Pray for Steve that the transition will be smooth...this will be a big change for him - but a good one.  And really we could all use some prayers because it will be a big change for all of us....
So there you have it big news....
