Uneasy Days Ahead....

Hello Everyone!
I have nothing to post here on this late evening update. Things have been busy around the Aungst house. We found out on Monday that we will be moving to Joplin, Missouri sometime in the next 6 weeks for Shawn's job. It is all happening so quickly and I know Kelsey & I are not handling it very well. If your not a Facebook fan i'll fill you in as to what we would like to do. Since Kelsey is now a senior and getting ready to enter her last year of high school we are waiting to see what will happen with our house & how quickly it will sell and then check into getting an apartment in the area for the next 9 months until she graduates. Before all this happened we decided to take in Kelsey's best friend, Kerri, whom lost her mom last year to cancer. Her grandmother has been raising her & recently sold their house in the school district and took her to the grandparents house in another county. So Kerri & Kelsey are in the same boat of needing a place within the school district so they can graduate together with their classmates. Somehow, someway i'm praying we can work something out and be able to do this financially for the next 9 months while Shawn is in Missouri. I'm praying it will work for the girls sake. Alot of unknowns right now but hopefully soon we'll have more answers.
So, the last few days we've been painting and cleaning out and prepping for our day of meeting with realtors. Tomorrow Shawn will meet with his relocation caseworker thru work to see what is next. It's all alittle scary and today I broke down and cried infront of the realtor. We've been in this house 16 years and there are many memories. I'm praying for strength to get thru this...
Well, hubby is back to work Friday & the weekend and we have yard sale stuff to price & get ready for next weekend. I hope to get some stamping time in soon. I placed a small order yesterday for some new SU stuff...WooHoo! I can't wait to get my Just Believe set! Love it!!
Ok folks, I am exhausted and need to get some sleep! I'll be back soon with something stamp related...I promise!
Thanks for stopping by!

I my Wendy, I feel your pain and anguish. This has to be one of the most difficult times you've ever had to go through and I wish I lived close enough to offer a helping hand in some way. Life is never easy, and it's always full of difficult decisions, but as long as your family is together, you can make home anywhere you hang your hat. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers and wishing you brighter days ahead! Big hugs my friend!

Hi Wendy,

Did you get my response to your e-mail? I hope all works out for you and I know that if I was in your place I would try and stay to let my daughter graduate with her friends as well as where she has gone to school all her life. The Lord will work this all out for you. Shawn can maybe find a very inexpensive small place to rent until things are settled with your house, one plus here is that the cost of living is a bit lower so that my work in your favor! Girl I praying for you guys! Please let me know if I can be of some help in any way.

First, I would like to say that I'm very glad to see that you are blogging again. I was a huge fan of your last blog and was sad when you stopped doing it.

I am very sad to hear of your situation and hope all works out for you and your family. I don't know if I would be able to handle what you're going through. God bless you, you poor thing.
