Counting Down!

We are four days away from launching into our biggest adventure yet!

Only four days away and I come down sick. This is not how I expected our adventure to begin, lol.

We’ve had a lot happen since my last update. We’ve had a couple yardsales and I think I’ve come to the conclusion that I will probably never have another yardsale for the rest of my life. It’s a lot of work for just a few bucks, though  I did have some amazing friends buy a couple big items from us and I couldn’t be more thankful for them.

We sold our old car that we haven’t driven in quite some time, it was another money pit and I’m so glad to have it gone. A weight lifted off my aging shoulders, ha!

We also endured a tragic event, our sweet doggie somehow, somewhere, got a hold of rat poison. My inlaws dog also got into it and, sadly, she did not make it. Our girl made it but we were told that particular poison is addicting and she would look for it again if she came home, so, she went to a new home. I’m thankful to know she went to a good home though. She’s with a super sweet family with plenty of animals to watch over and some little ones to play and snuggle with. She’s a livestock guardian so she’ll have plenty to do.

On a positive note, we got to spend a good evening with friends last night. Upbuilding association is a much needed thing these days, and I especially wanted to have them over before our trip. We’ll be back, but we’ll all still miss seeing each other.

I’ve gotten a lot of questions, like “Are you excited?” Well, yes. There’s so much we look forward to but at the same time this is a big change in our lives, that we don’t take lightly, and it’s a good bit to take in. I’m so thankful to know we’re loved and will be missed, but we have received so much support from our family and friends and that really means a lot to us.

SO, launch day is right around the corner! I’ll be updating again SOON! And there will, most definitely, be photos. Lots and lots of photos!

Hi! I'm Amanda, a wife, caregiver to my Parkie hubby, homeschooling mom of three and recently have become a soap making enthusiast. My hubby and I have had many an adventure over the years, our most recent being homesteaders in a small rural area of Alabama. We currently have chickens, a dairy goat we've lovingly named Georgia, three young Hereford pigs, a livestock guardian named Snow whom our children adore and two spoiled cats named Felix and Emma. Soon, we plan on embarking on our biggest adventure to date, an extended cross country trip around the United States. Our longest trip was a two week trip to New York and Canada and I thought that was long! So, thank you in advance for visiting my blog, my first by the way! I hope I have something to offer to my readers. Happy reading!
