Packing & Black Magic



We are packing up our cars today. This is the car we traded in our F-150. Reasons? Because we were still making payments on the truck AND it was a major gas hog. And because we are trying to get rid of any extra payments, we did a switch-a-roo for a 2013 Toyota Corolla that we call "Black Magic."

Black Magic is new and shiny. However, he is a stick. I've realized that I can't drive a stick. Alright, maybe, I can, it's just that I don't want to. I stall it all the time and it's jerky. It's jerky because of the person (I) driving it. Practice makes things better, but I avoid it in all ways. I think the only way I'll be driving it is back and forth from TN. Trav is so cute and got the windows tinted so I won't feel so embarrassed. I still feel embarrassed and get nervous whenever I have to stop or someone is behind me.

Speaking of TN, we're leaving for the 8-10 hour drive to get down there, tomorrow. We are doing our final walk-through and on Friday, we close. We're excited but nervous. Trav will be starting school, and I will be having to find a job. However, this time, I'm going to get a job that I actually like. And to be honest, I think I'm going to work retail, because it just suits my personality better. And we're going to go in debt no matter what, but once Trav gets out of school instead of going a couple months of debt (if I got a job making what I make now), we'll go into debt that lasts like 3 more months longer. I say it'll be worth it because my other job was miserable.

Anyways, wish us luck today and tomorrow as we have two small Toyota Corolla's we're going to be packing. It probably won't fit much as we'll probably have to ask people to bring us stuff with trips they may make out there, but we'll going to try. Also, please pray for safe driving, as we know a storm is making it's way across from Indiana and TN.

Trig and the Tot

Since we've had Trigger, Tatum and Trig have been the bff's. They love each other. Tatum is used to dogs; there has always been furballs in our home since we've fostered. Tatum though loves a dog to play with for a day or so, but that's about it. He usually would get tired of playing with the other dog after a while.

With Trig, though, it's different. Tatum LOVES to play with his brother, and even starts to annoy his brother so they can play. Tatum and Trig's are opposites though: Trig will wake you up before the sun rises, while Trig loves to sleep in as late as he can. Trig is hyper active while Tatum is a lazy bum. You get the point. They balance each other out.


Look at all the brotherly love and all their cuteness.

























I don't know what I do without my boys. They always make my day.


Ugly Sweater Christmas Party

We decided to put together a last minute Ugly Sweater Christmas party. Because it was last minute, and pretty close to Christmas, not a lot of people were able to make it. Trig and Tatum had a lot of fun getting tons of attention - especially Trig who had a vote of the ugliest Christmas sweater/outfit. LOL.
