The Simple Things

I really don’t need to much in life to make me happy. My family means the world to me. My boys are my world, and my husband all though we can get on each others nerves is my best friend as well as my other half in this thing we call marriage. We are H.S. sweethearts, we have had our ups and downs but guess what we just celebrated 18 years married! 23 years together. Not to shabby!

I love the lil moment In life where you go to the store together, make some small talk and just hang out. Makes some of the coolest memories. We went to the grand opening of Field and Stream and they had some really cool stuff. Hubby needed a sweatshirt. I think between this store, Bass Pro Shop and Cabelas, I never really need to shop anywhere else. ( JK, I do like Kohl’s and a few other stores) they have a very cool display that we took a picture in front of. To some people it might be nothing, but to me its a memory!

I really don’t need much in life, I would take my bed and sweatpants over heels and jeans any day of the week! One on one conversation vs screaming at each other at a loud bar. Don’t get me wrong, I do like to go out every once in a while, but if we don’t get to do it,  it wont kill me either.

Pets + Moving = STRESS

So where were we, Oh yeah time to move the pets! So as you already know our family consists of Humans, Dogs, 1 Cat ,Bearded Dragon named Odie & Fish! So the time came to get the dogs over, Bella our Boxer and Bailey our Maltese. They had been to moms before as you know from my previous blog during the open house. We had been moving stuff from 8 am that morning, set up 2 bedrooms been back and forth to the storage unit a few times and both of us were wiped out! We had only eaten pizza so energy levels were down and to be honest I needed SLEEP.

Now I had put Oldies light on a timer to go off the next morning, and feed the cat cleaned the litter and left the air on so it would not get hot! I had to go back the next day to finish collecting odds and ends and get the rest of the crew.  Time to harness up the dogs and get them into the van to take to 20 min ride to the new place! THIS RIDE FELT LIKE 20 HOURS!

Besides the van being backed with stuff we left room for the dogs to lay down. But laying down for Bella was not an option.. My husband (she loves him like he’s hers) told her “ok Bella, get in the van and look for me” . He was in the truck in front of me. So she did just that, Stood up with he to front paws on the passenger seat of the van and watched his every move! BELLA I yell, Sit down! Nothing, no blink no eye contact nothing. Bailey just sat there wondering where the HELL are we going?

OMG she had me so nervous cause 1 I’m driving a van with only 2 seats and no way to belt them in and if you could have seen he back legs they were so tense it was crazy, and 2 it was almost 11 pm and I was to say the least tired! We pull up at moms and the first thing I have to do is walk them so they don’t walk into the house and piddle, THAT was interesting! A tired mom and 2 riled up pups. BUT we survived. Bella even got a new bed! Bailey just sleeps with us

Now.. the next morning comes we go for a walk and start to settle down a bit we all eat and now its time to go back to the house to get a few odds and ends and grab the rest of the crew who at this point now wonder where are the humans? Now remember I have packed everything up..Not thinking I have nothing to move the fish with, cause picking up a 10 gallon tank filled with water… not so smart! So the next best thing is the only option I have, my ice bucket..ohh and a paper Burger King cup. I know your laughing now because I was! I literally chased this fish down with a cup, took me like 25 min to get him..every time I thought I had him he escaped. jeeeeez  Odie well that was easy, open the tank put him in the travel tank and load him up. Now the cat.. you would think this would be a cintch…yeah , NO it was not. shes a big girl and an indoor cat who like to eat. So… BIC cat small cary case that I have not used in 8 years. Fun times(not). By this point its dark I have been doing this now for 1 to many hours and I’m done!

LOAD EM UP….

 

All went well even though Missy(the cat ) did nothing but scream the entire 20 min ride so loud that it was hard to drive. But everyone has made there spot in Our New/Old home. Missy actually was quite familiar with this place as she was here 9 years prior.
