Whew! We made it!

Sorry it has been so long between posts. We have been SUPER busy over the last week and it has finally died down a little bit! I have quite a few things to update!

1. We made it to Arizona!! Without either of us getting a traffic ticket!! We both arrived on Saturday and are slowly settling in. The time change is what's getting me the most, but hopefully I will adapt soon enough.

2. The lady accepted the counter offer for the house!! The inspection yielded nothing major (thank god!), and the option period for her to back out is over at Midnight Wednesday.

3. I got to see the plot and the new house here in Az! It is HUGE!!! I am so excited b/c I get to buy lots of furniture and decorations and fun stuff like that!! Scott says I have to buy baby furniture first though.

4. My morning Sickness is back. I am not throwing up, but I have been feeling pretty miserable the last few days. I think it's b/c I went back to taking the vitamins from before b/c they were all I could find in my suit case until recently when I found all of the others. I wil definately be switching back tonight.

5. My appt w/ the new OB in AZ today didn't happen. I got there and apparently whom ever I made the appt with failed to tell me that they don't accept our insurance when I told her what it was. Ugh. They did however refer me to someone down the road that they really like and who does accept our insurance. I have an appt with them on Wednesday and Scott will be able to go :o) He will get to see Baby for the first time!! I am really excited.

Last Day

Today was my last day for a few things. Some I'm excited about and others I am not so excited about.

First off today is my last FULL day w/o Scott! I am soo excited to finally get to see him tomorrow after 7 weeks being apart!

Second today was my last day at IPT. I am sad about it. I grew to love the kids that we saw in therapy, I really loved working with and getting to know Megan, and I promise to keep in touch and send pictures! She gave me one of the Willow Tree Angel figurines. I LOVE Willow Tree and I am soo excited about it. I showed it off to everyone that came to my house tonight (which was about 10 between realtors, friends, etc!). Thanks Megan, you rock!

Third today was my last day to see Kristin. She was my Maid-of-Honor in my wedding and has been my bestest Dallas and Nacogdoches friend for over 5 years. I am really going to miss her. She leaves for California tomorrow, like the punk she is!

And finally today was my last time to eat at Fireside Pies. Sounds lame I know, but I have grown to love this pizza place in Plano. Scott and Garry and I have eaten there often and they just have rockin' pizza. Luckily I have left overs for lunch tomorrow :o)

We found out today that Scott has a degenerative disk in his back. He didn't throw it out like we first thought, but this diagnosis doesnt go away as easily either. Apparently one of the disks between his vertabrae has lost some of the spinal fluid in it causing him to be in pain. The doctor said that helping move and everything that he can't do anything to hurt it, but it will cause him lots of pain. He didn't give him anything for the pain though, odd. He can go to treatments and therapy to help it (he will be going, he just doesnt realize it yet! If I have the joy of birthing a baby you can go to back therapy!).

We signed all the paper work for the counter offer so here's to hoping they accept it. It's a good deal for all parties so I am confident it will work out.

2 days Exactly

Until I get to see Scott again!!! I am so excited to get to see him again!!! I cannot wait until Tuesday at 8:05 (when his plane lands).

In other exciting news...we have an offer on our house!!! I am really excited. We countered asking for a little more, but if not we will definately accept the original offer. I am so excited that everything is finally falling into place. We leave for AZ this week. I will probably leave Friday afternoon. I will not be making the drive all in one day, like Scott plans to do. I just can't wait to finally get there and have all of this stuff behind us and for everyone to be back together again. Boomer really misses the big dogs and I know he will be excited to be reunited with them too!!

Not much else going on. I am back to having some nausea. It's mainly b/c I have NO desire to eat, and when I go longer than a few hours w/o eating I get nauseas. But, NOTHING sounds good to eat. I ate breadsticks with marinara for dinner w/ grape juice. That's how bad the food aversions are. I also get nauseas at night, but that's do-able b/c I am at home and I can lay down and study or watch t.v. with Boomer.

I will finish my speech hours tomorrow. I am really going to miss Megan, Katie, and the kids. But definately plan on keeping in touch. I cannot express my gratitude to Megan and IPT for helping me get my hours. Without them I would have not been able to get paid for my first two months working, and that would have been hard. Thanks guys you ROCK!!!

Last Day w/ My Sister

I am really excited to spend the afternoon with my sister today, but I am also kind of sad about it. This is my "good-bye day" with my sister. She will be working all next week and this will be the last time I see her before moving to Arizona. My sister and I are really close, and I can't even begin to count how many times she has "rescued" me, helped me, etc. She is the one person in my crazy family that I know I can always rely on to be there if I need her. I think it will be hard to be so far away, but I know that we can always visit each other.

The closer we get to leaving for Arizona the more nervous I get about it. I'm not nervous about moving away with Scott or anything like that. I am nervous b/c I only know his family out there. I have none of my family or really good friends out there, and what if something happens and I need them? I know I have Scott and his family and that I can make friends, it's just different. I guess call me sentimental, but I really like having my family and friends close by. I know I will get over it, it's just my current train of thought. June 27th seemed so far away and now it's next Friday. I am REALLY glad to get to see Scott again, I just kind of hoped to have more time in Dallas.
