We are MOVING to TEXAS! Most of you have already heard but in case you haven't - well now you know. It is certainly going to be a very sad good bye to our dearest friends here in Augusta! :(

David is being promoted with Firestone to the plant in Orange, TX. We spent all of last week out there to house hunt. Nora was such a great traveler on the plane and a great house hunter too! We made and offer on a home Thursday before flying out Friday and the sellers accepted!!! Whew!! What a process!

I can’t begin to tell you how busy we have all been. I am coordinating this move and there is just not enough time in the day. David’s part in this hasn’t been easy either, because I am constantly adding to his honey-do-list. He checks off an item as done only to find I have added 3 more! Will he ever get done? :P

Our home here in GA is not on the market as of yet. We are trying to get our repair guy to come replace some rotting wood by the front door before we list it. Also we are having him do some outdoor painting and pressure washing. Our realtor says that we will have a better chance at getting prime market value if that all of these thing are taken care of first. He’s supposed to be here tomorrow and Thursday so join us in crossing your fingers for us that he will show up! He has cancelled on us twice already.

Hopefully we will have a for sale sign in the yard Thursday afternoon! The bad thing is that we will only be able to show it with furniture for only 2-3 days!!! Yep, like I said earlier time is flying by!!! Our new home in TX goes to closing on Friday May 6th, so next MONDAY packers come, Tuesday is loading day and then we are driving cross-country on Wednesday and Thursday!! We will keep you posted, please if you remember us, keep us in your prayers. God Bless!

Nora has a new nick name... I actually stopped everything to come to the computer and post this! Nora is now known as "Little Miss Water Works" - for the last few days she gets so mad and frustrated when she doesn't get her way, that she immediately turns on the water works! She looks so pitiful, but luckily the water shuts off about as quickly as it turns on - for now at least. :)

Looks like David's first day of work at the Orange plant is scheduled for Monday, May 2nd... that is only 4 weeks away! I hope the HR people call soon so we can get all the details about selling our home. For now I have to get everything cleaned and put away neatly. Thank goodness I am all caught up on the laundry! Woo hoo!

Well we have some sour news for everyone. We are moving - yes moving. I know it's April Fools Day, but we are not foolin. .....this makes our upteenth move in our 8 years of marriage.

David has accepted a job promotion with Firestone at the Orange, Texas plant. We don't have much of the moving details as of yet but it looks like once everything starts going it will be a fast move.

It was the hardest decision we have had to make since we have been married. We will really hate to say Good Bye to Augusta and our friends here. We really feel like Augusta is home for us.
