Random Ramblings: TEN ON TUESDAY

Tuesday, March 3, 2015


I have been having a hard time keeping up with the Sunday Ramblings, so I thought I would change it a bit.
I have come across a few blogs lately that have 10 on TUESDAY.  I thought that would be a cool idea.  So I am going to try to do that instead.  So every Tuesday I will post just 10 random thoughts in my brain.  :)

So here goes...

1.  So much on my mind lately in regards to moving to Arizona, not moving to Arizona...  Decisions like this are hard and I know that my husband is really having a hard time with this.  We want to move, but to just move from the only place you have known to a brand new state where you know not one single person, is indeed scary.  But we have prayed alot and what is meant to be in God's grand plan for us will work out.

2.  I hate grocery shopping.

3.  I wish it would rain more.

4.  I need to start eating better again and start excersizing.

5.  The stress of the unknown is causing me to stress eat.  NOT GOOD NICOLE.

6.  This Friday I have a doctors appointment.  The first with a new doctor since our insurance changed.

7.  The kids school called today about picking up an enrollment packet for Chloe to start Kindergarten.  OMG, I don't think I am ready for this no matter where we live.

8.  Sometimes I don't feel like doing anything and want to just stay in my pajamas all day, but I refrain.

9.  ARIZONA on my brain so much.

10.  I picked up the book IF I STAY at Target before our Arizona trip and I didn't buy it because I didn't think I would have time to read it, but I really think I want to go back and get it.  I just saw that they have a Kindle version of the book for only $2.99,  I might just get that and steal, er I mean borrow one of the boys kindles and read it while they are at school, or after they go to bed.

What is on your mind today?



  1. I'm in Arizona and love it here. Becky Higgins, Theresa Collins and Tim Holtz just to name a few also live in Arizona. I've lived in a number of places over the years and looked at each new place as an adventure. Whatever you decide I'm sure the Lord will bless you greatly.

    1. Thank you so much. I also am looking at it as an adventure, and I think it would be great for our family. Still scary for sure though lol. And I worry about getting all our stuff there, with no where to put it yet lol.

    2. Oh and where in Arizona are you at? We are looking at the Prescott, Chino Valley area. :)

  2. I totally understand your feelings. We had to make this very same decision 26 years ago. I worked in for a relocation company and felt I understood the dynamics as well as the emotions of moving. I did, but it didn't make it any easier. Even though I knew no one and didn't know how to get around, looking it back it was a great decision. I miss my family and can't just pop over or do something with them at the drop of a dime. Kids adapt and when your spouse is happy and your kids are happy it all works out. Hang in there, you'll make the right decision!

    1. It is definitely scary and we have never done anything like this before so its a bit overwhelming, but exciting at the same time. I am trying to look at it like this, we may have no where to live yet, and live in a hotel for a month, but that is just a small small part of the rest of our lives. It would be an adventure for sure. I also agree that the kids are young enough that they will totally adapt and it will be a good thing I am sure. I think it will be a good thing for our family and I am just praying and I know that whatever God has in store for us he will make it all work out in the end. :) Thank you for the support.

    2. Marilyn, where did you guys move from and to? Where are you now?
