Sunny Florida....maybe

Yea! I'm so excited! We are leaving tomorrow on our trip to Orlando!!! My Dad has been planning this trip for two years (he's pretty much like a big kid.) I can't believe its here! I have been so distracted with everything going on (and getting a nasty cold, boo) that I didn't even notice what the date was. I've had to keep reminding myself that we're going! I'm excited, I've never been to any of the D-lands before and seeing the Atlantic will be pretty nifty I'm sure. All in all I think it will be a nice vacation (even if it is going to rain the whole time we're there.) My dad is kinda making up for lost time I think (the vacations we never took etc) so this should be good healing as well for him. My parents are much better people apart. Weird how that is huh? Any who, wish me a happy toddler on the plane and sunny skies!

Well we did it. Our address now says Lacey, WA. It's nice to be done with the move and almost settled. Everyone was such a big help, it went very smoothly. Jim started work today at the Olympia Outback. He's worked there before, so he knows almost all the kitchen staff already. It's hard adjusting to living with your parents again. I'm not very happy with the situation (I miss having my own place) but it will help significantly with us getting out of debt. So, I'll just have to make the best of it and try to be a good tenant. The only thing that has really bugged me so far, is that my Dad has this awful habit of walking into my bedroom unannounced. I haven't said anything yet, I think I'm just going to start locking the door. He's done it twice while Jim and I were asleep, once I wasn't exactly in my jammies. It's not my idea of a good way to start the day. Oh well, I'm sure we'll figure it out. I know it's hard on both ends to adjust. I haven't 'lived' with my Dad for over 8 years, since my parents were divorced. The circumstances are much different now, and we have both changed dramatically, so it's almost like living with complete strangers, theres still alot of growing room for everyone one involved. Wish me luck! I'm sure I'll figure out how to be a Wife, Mother (almost of 2), Daughter and Adult all at once (phew) I think I need prayers...any offers? Love you all.
