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.

I'm glad to hear that your move went well, we were sad to be out of town when you left. Hope you guys are able to find a good balance living with your dad again.

You're missed around here but that will be good to be able to pay off some debt -- especially since you'll be piling it on for the next few years.

And who is the vespa girl?

Vespa girl's name is Jihan. She's LDS and lives on the east side. I met her in the institute choir. Her life is all sorts of outlandish and extravigant, it's funny to read about. We miss everyone up there too!
