Let it snow!

We finally got to the snow this last weekend. The kids had so much fun. Ethan just wanted to go up the hill and slide down with Clark over and over. Rosco, our dog, went crazy digging holes and running around. It wasn't as cold as I thought it would be. Clark's brother, Brent, came with us. We had so much fun!

So maybe we have been a little stubborn about moving, or at least going back to school...I dont know.. What do you think? Last year we were supposed to buy a great townhouse in a beautiful area, very close to the beach and the temple, with great schools, sounds great right? Well, we were in escrow, did our walk-thru and were going to close in three days when Clark and I weren't having such a good feeling about it. I thought I was crazy, the deal sounded so good and I couldn't see why we shouldn't do it. So after fasting and much prayer we decided not to buy, but to rent a house instead, two months later Clark lost his job (very unfairly, might I add). He decided to go back to school to be what he always wanted, a dentist. I started a small daycare and Clark was managing a tax-prep company in LA between his school semesters to make rent. We just weren't making it on our own here. So we thought we should move to a cheeper place. We started to look in Long Beach and Riverside and found some decent places, but no job, and still kinda expensive. I gave our landlord our 30 notice and she sounded okay with it, even though our lease is not up until May. so Clark put in his two weeks and I told my daycare parents that we were moving. She called the next day, probably after talking with her dad or her fiance, and said that we would have to stay or just pay until May, unless we could find someone to fill our lease. I went into panic mode. I wasn't sure if I could find a replacement and our savings is pretty much gone now and we would have no income in two weeks. I posted some free adds last night on Craigslist and Pennysaver and I have had 8 inquiries already! in one night! So now I am not worried and I know we are supposed to move. make that nine inquiries (someone else just called! yeah!)

the big move

Yes, it is true. We are moving to Arizona. Clark really wants to be a dentist and so here we go back to school. I am so sad to leave California because it is home to me, but if we are going to finish dental school we will need some help. My wonderful and beautiful sister has agreed to take us in. So if anyone had any plans to go to Disneyland this year you have two months to get over here. In all seriousness I would love to have company before we go. Give me a call!

We had a big storm here last weekend and half of our neighbors tree fell into our yard right on top of the swing set. The gardener cut it down for us, but it landed right on the electrical wires so they are sagging a lot now. I am not sure what to do about that. At least nobody got hurt.
