Another Move..

We didn't get a lot of sleep last night. 

Yesterday we found out that we are moving to Memphis. It might be only for a week, it could be longer. 
This move was quite unexpected, but we had no choice so we agreed to move.
We just had one problem...

We have a lot of stuff.

I don't know how it happened, we were able to fit everything into our car from North Carolina and get it to Arkansas. We've only been in Arkansas for 3 months but we can't get everything into our car. So after a 4:30 am Walmart trip we had it figured out. We're going to strap stuff to the roof of our car. 
We got to bed around 5 am. 
Then the calls started to come in.. 
We were needed in Memphis Friday morning. Sooner than we thought.

We tried going back to sleep after that. Just as we started to doze off another call would come in, or a text, or a voicemail. Finally just around 10 am when we were about to fall asleep another call came in.

The call we were waiting for.
Taylor got his promotion. A job he had been hoping to get all summer. 

We were beyond excited.
There was no going to sleep after that. 
 We tried.

As I tried falling back asleep I thought to myself how awesome my husband is. 
His hard work allows me to stay home and run Talk2thetrees
I get to play all day while he works.
His work also allows us to travel and go on adventures.
He had been working hard for 2 years now and now has the job he wanted. 
I am so proud of him and so very thankful. 

I felt like telling him all of this so I rolled over to check to see if he was sleeping. 
He wasn't. 
He was too excited.
I gave him a big hug and told him how much I appreciate him.

And today we will be packing up all of stuff, cramming it into (and on top of) our little carolla and moving to Memphis.  

All on only a few hours of sleep.

I love the way life changes sometimes...
