Time is FLYING

I cannot believe how quick things go. Emma is going to be 8 in a few weeks...the boys are 3 1/2 and 4 1/2....they will both be going to preschool next year and Emma will be in 3rd grade.

Just seems so crazy how fast time is going.

We have started moving into our new house and so far things are going good. We have some work to do, lots of wallpaper removal but we are up to the challenge.

We finally got done telling most everyone. Everyone else who we didn't personally tell is going to get an email next time they check with our new address. So I assume my phone will be ringing with a ton of questions. And we are ready. We probably won't get into to much detail but I am ready.

Matt and I really prayed long and hard about what to do and moving is the right choice for us. We had the option of staying and we had the money to make up all the back mortgage but moving was the right, responsible choice for us.

I know people are going to talk about us. About how we are immature and can't manage money but oh well. Let them talk. Everyone has problems and we ALL know that. I guess I am a little different. I don't hide my problems. Matt and I are very open about our life. That offends some friends and family, but oh well. I just have nothing to hide.

I spent years and years of my childhood hiding things and I found that it is best for me that I don't do that anymore. I need to talk, I need my closest friends and family to know what's going on and I don't care if that make them uncomfortable. I also would prefer that people talk to me if they want to know something. If you have questions or concerns, please talk to me, don't talk behind my back. I hate that with a passion. A few of my friends are really good about coming to me but there are 2 that LOVE to talk behind my back, but you know what....oh well.

That is my attitude - OH WELL. It happens. And I have to put on my big girl panties and deal with it.

Our losing our house has stirred up alot of talk and that's ok. It really is. Like I said, Matt and I have talked and prayed and we are ok with this decision. The decision did not come lightly or quickly. It took lots of uncomfortable conversations and lots of 3am phone calls.

We are good. Life is good. Sometimes you have to close the book rather then turn the page.

I hope everyting works out for you guys Kelly. I wouldn't worry too much about what people say....my experience is people will "talk" whether they have something to talk about or not!

The posts about your situation have been honest and open. You made a decision to answer the question of "how do I survive this" in the best way for you and your family. I wish you all best. Please don't let other peoples experiences/opinions get you down. They are not walking in YOUR shoes. Honesty says a lot about a persons character! All the best Kelly!

Honestly as long as you know that this is the right decision for YOUR family, it's none of anyone's business. Let them talk. Hold your head high!
