Let the Water Works Begin!

I went and had my hair cut by the girl who has been cutting it perfectly for the past two years. My hair looks fabulous! I am really sad about this. Why?

Because, I find that the hardest part of moving for me is finding a new hairdresser. Maybe it is just vanity, but the thought having my hair messed up just makes me crazy. I know it is just hair and it grows, but if it gets fried -- it takes a while to fix that problem , friends. Trust me!!!!
Here is hoping I can find someone who can just work wonders for me up there in the next couple of months before my roots get to showing again...... This makes me cry -- the whole situation.

Today is going to be a day for of finishing up. We have to finish filling up boxes, the ones with just a little space left, and get them all taped up.
I have to clean out the fridge.....yuck. All the food is boxed up except for the poptarts for our children to eat Sunday morning before going to church. So, more eating out. Any suggestions for healthy, cost conscious restaurants?

The tv is packed up and the computer will be unplugged and boxed up later on today. Only to return when we get our new internet/email stuff set up next week......let's hope that is pretty quickly. Makes me wish even harder for that laptop I've been hinting about.....

That brings up a question for someone out there who knows something about techie kinds of things. Will I be able to just change my email address on blogger and keep this blog or do I have to start all over? This is probably a stupid question but I have no idea about these kinds of things.

Tomorrow morning at 8AM, the mover's will come and load up the truck. I will follow in one vehicle and hubs will follow in another. We will leave what he drives up there. This will bring tears again I'm sure. Just the whole process of seeing everything loaded into a truck.

We will go pick up our children from the grandparents tomorrow evening and return here to campout for two nights.
Sunday is our last day at this church. Again there will probably be tears. It doesn't pay to be pregnant and hormonal on top of being sad about something.
Then on Monday morning, we will head out of this place no later than 10 AM to our new home.

We are both sad and excited because we know God has a plan. And he is in charge of the whole thing.
Ya'll pray for our family this weekend and for our church family as we all transition. It will not be an easy weekend for any of us.

I will be back, as I said, when we get our new internet stuff set up.
Talk to ya'll next week. I'm sure I will have lots of catching up to do!

Cry your little heart out...I would!!!

So many changes going on...your attitude really is amazing! :)

The hair - I totally get it...I've already told my stylist she CANNOT ever move...EVER. :)

Praying for you and the big move...can't wait to hear what God does next!

Oh my - being pregnant and going through all this at the same time would be so difficult.

I am praying for you and your family, Mindy. I know you will do fine and adjust well. God knew that all along when he put you with your husband. 'Where' you are going will be different, but it's certainly beautiful there in my opinion.

I understand the 'hair' thing. When I lived 3 hours away, I would still come here to get my hair done.

As far as the blog, it will be exactly like this in your new home. All you'll have to do is sign on with your username and password and then change your e-mail address.

Can't wait to read more about you settling in!

I will be praying for you. We spent almost 21 years with the Air Force. We moved a lot, but now have friends all over the country.

I married a preacher's kid, so I kind of know a bit of what you are facing but with a different slant. My husband's dad was at the same church for 33 years, which is not the typical, even in that denomination. But you put the moving with the Air Force along with the knowledge of what the preacher and his family faces, I understand.

We have an awesome God who I know will wrap His big arms around your family this weekend and the weeks ahead. He will give you strength when you need it.

I will be praying that your kids will quickly make new friends and adjust. My children were able to do that with each move and that seemed to help.

Can't wait to hear about your new place and adventures.

Best wishes with your move. Moving is tough and I understand the hair trauma. We're moving this Aug!

I'll be praying for you in the coming days. We had a possibility of a move a month or so ago that brought me to tears: tears of sorrow and excitement...

Enjoy your last Sunday and congratulations on the baby on the way...

Prayers that it is an easy transition for you all. And I hope that you find an even BETTER hairdresser. I think that you can just change your e-mail address in BLOGGER.

Hey Mindy,

I did get the book you sent. Thank you for that! Also, thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. We are very excited...and I totally get the tears after leaving your stylist. Remember, I go to her too....and she can work magic!!!!! I hope you are getting settled in your new home, and that your chuch welcomes you with open arms.
