Trials are good for you....trials are good for you....really they are!

I'm trying to convince myself that trials are good for you. They make you stronger, right??? Sometimes I just wish I could just stay weak! Ok, I'm kidding!! Seriously though, we got a call from our landlords this past Saturday that one of their kids is in a tight spot and they need us to move out of our house so their kid can move in here!!!!! Can you believe it? My husband was so shocked when she called and told him all he could do was say OK!!! Then he called me in the room and told me we had to be out of here by September 1st......so I grabbed the phone from him and called her right back and not so nicely told her she was out of her mind!! We have FIVE kids and three of them are starting school next month so we have a ton of stuff to buy next month!!! To say the least, that alone was going to strap our budget! But I also have to say that we did some mighty ernest praying over the weekend and we've already found a new place to live and we are going to be buying it....and we get to move in on the 1st of August!!! This has all turned out to be a blessing in disguise! I was totally stressed out and cried for 2 days because I was so worried about how much was going to be going on in August.....you know shopping for school, getting the kids settled in school, having to house hunt and HOPE that we would be able to find somewhere to live in an area where there are next to NO places listed for rent right now!! We are in the area where Hurricane Rita came through, so there are not very many places to rent because there are still a lot of contractors in the area renting all the vacant homes! I'm afraid I won't be posting a whole lot in the next few weeks because I will be busy packing, moving, and then unpacking!! I dread moving, but I know in the end it will be the best for us!! I do have a couple of projects I made using the Crop-a-dile! That is THE best invention EVAH!!!!! I will try and get them posted one night this week! Sorry for all the personal stuff here....I really planned to keep all personal stuff off my blog because I didn't want people to have to wade through it to get to the nitty gritty of stamping, but I just needed to yell from the rooftops that I'm going to live....even if my blood pressure was nearly through the roof this weekend!! Obviously everything happens for a reason, and I really need to learn that "this too shall pass". Luckily it was seen fit to show me that is can pass pretty quickly! I'm not very good at being patient! Alrighty......I'll quit yacking now! Sorry for the long read!!
