Well- we wanted to wait until Jon gave news to his job that he will only be working there for 2 more weeks, and as of mid-February Jon will begin his new job and our new life in Waco/Hewitt Texas. The kids and I will stay until school is out and we can sell the house. We are trying to transition the kids over the summer and not miss any school - and start fresh. We have prayed and really sought God's will for us and this has brought peace to our hearts, and this is what is best for our family. We are scared and excited all of the same time, and would ask for your prayers and advice if you know that area!! LOL We will be putting our house on the market in the next couple of months and looking for our new home in Hewitt, Texas.

"If you had ONE day to do ANYthing and EVERYthing in the world you wanted to do, how would you indulge yourself?"

That my friends is the question at hand. That would mean that I would have to decide what my perfect day is for me. Well, I am a thrill seeker, and it has never been a fear of mine to try something new. (Other than a restaurant that serves weird food and you know what's good to eat there and no I don't feel like trying the "special" tonight! Sorry!) I love amusement parks- for the rides -ALL rides!! I don't want to look at things when I go to an amusement park I do not want sand art or a weird caricature of my face- I want to ride the rides. PERIOD! Also, I have said to my husband at an amusement park we'll say Branson this "we are not here to watch glass blowing honey, we are here to ride rides!! LOL! My most indulgent day honestly does not include spas, or beaches (don't get me wrong they would be awesome but my amazing day would be this: My husband and I would start our day at 12 am and we would go to 12 am the following day. I would ride the top 10 roller coasters in the world- I have listed 2 websites of the top 10 in the world! LOL!! I found them!! I know I am a dork!! LOL

No matter how high, lots of spins, or flying like superman we would ride them!! We would have jets ready to take us around the United States or other countries when needed, and with our hands raised in the air we would ride each one screaming like fools!!! Ha Ha!! I would love to tell my kids we did something like that!! My husband and I have had to be brave over serious things in our lives, and this is something that I would do as my indulgence, my favorite thing in the world is laugh with my husband,and it would totally impress my kids (I care more about them thinking I am cool than anyone!! LOL) It is funny and quirky- but it's us!! It would be stories to tell my grand kids and that would be my indulgence.
