Okay so I didn't go to market but the title seemed appropriate, we have been gone for what seems like forever and the housework that piled up seems to indicate that it wasn't quite long enough. Danny got laid off 3 weeks ago Friday and the job offers just don't seem to be materializing as quickly as we thought that they should. We went down to Memphis to increase our chances of finding something that won't lay people off in a couple of weeks and that pays enough to support our large family. We haven't heard back from anything yet but then again, we have only been back for almost 48 hours. I guess I am just impatient. We had our Christmas celebration with my brother and his beautiful family yesterday. I know that there are pictures but it will take me a while to get that all loaded and taken care of. For now I just want to say that we had a lovely dinner and it was so nice to get to spend time with everyone. Thank you Dad and Sandra for being so gracious as to let us invade your home for a few days. Hopefully we will do it again soon. Also Thank you to Wil and Bess for the nice time at your amazing home. (I love the new color in the dining room!) I forget every time that we go that it is only an hour and a half to get there and that we should make the trip more often. I can't believe how grown all of the girls look.... you should probably staple their feet to the floor now and try and make them stop while they are young..... it goes by entirely too fast. Well, I hope to post again tomorrow after I finish this final... Much love and appreciation to you all....

Wow, here we are in a new year and I am already behind (raise your hand if your suprised). I got the house de-Christmased within the 2 days following the holiday which I believe to be a new personal best. All of the big dinner dishes were done and everything. Mat made it back to New York, a few snags and a speeding ticket but he made it there safe and that is what matters. I have undecided to go to Indiana Wesleyan and am currently re-evaluating my options. Danny got layed off on Friday and everything and every one has a new perspective on things. I know that we will survive it and much of it will be uncomfortable but hopefully we will come out stronger on the other side. Chloe has been doing some re-evaluating of her own. We will see how all of that pans out in the next couple of weeks. I have been busier than ever creating and I can't wait to post some of the things that I have been working on. Don't worry, I will keep the suprise for now, but I really am getting anxious. Hopefully that will have a happy ending too. In a moment where so many things seem to be going wrong I am greatful for all of the hope that things will be better than ever when it is over. Goals and dreams are free.
