Officially Coloradoans Again!

We made it to Colorado. Wow, what a long day it was. But we're now here, and I don't think it's totally sunk in that we don't have to turn around and head back in a couple of days.

We totally missed the mark on the amount of stuff we had. Sunny and a good friend had already taken up all of our things in a car hauler and a trailer. There were a few things still left in Flagstaff, and then Chelsie decided to come with us, so we had all of her things as well. I forgot to take a picture of our little caravan, but if you can imagine Beverly Hillbillies 2009 edition you'll get the picture. Think recliner instead of rocking chair! Of course it wasn't that bad, but we had odds and ends literally stuffed into every nook and cranny of all of our vehicles. Chels even had to strap our Shop Vac in her front passenger seat!

It's going to be busy for the next week or so. We're at my mother-in-law's house, and then we'll head up to Colorado Springs in a few days. My sister, who we'll be staying with for a bit, was put in the hospital last night with a fever, so they're running tests and we'll find out more tomorrow. We'd once again appreciate your prayers that she'd be able to get out very quickly.

I miss visiting around with all of you and can't wait to get back in the groove and catching up.

It's All We're Here Good!


  1. That's great news! Love your hillbillies illistration! I'll be praying for your sister-in-law.

  2. OF COURSE I'll pray for your sister. And I will pray about the moving process too. There is ALWAYS some type of little surprise involved in moving - more stuff than you thought sounds about right.

    HUGS to you Brenda! Rest and relax a little, as you are able.

  3. YEAH!!!!! I've been waiting for this post and wondering and knowing how it was going.

  4. So glad you made it to CO. I know you'll be glad to get settled in. So sorry to hear your sister is in the hospital. I'm praying.


  5. Thank goodness you arrived safe and sound. I know you are sooo thrilled to be back in Colorado. Colorado is a beautiful place to live, I envy you (although I know I shouldn't envy anyone!)

    We'll be in Littleton next month to visit my parents. I have vacation the third week of June so we plan to drive and take our time. I've never been to Utah and I'd like to see it. In fact, I've never driven to Colorado, I've always flown. My daughter will fly in from Tempe and hopefully my son can fly into CO to join us too. I'll contact you later on and maybe we can meet up while I'm there. It would be great to meet you!

    Take care and enjoy this new adventure God has sent you on. I'll be sure and remember Reva in my thoughts and prayers.

  6. Jennifer - I was just a little shocked at the amount of stuff since we're always culling out and taking things to the GW. We did have to leave a few things, but nothing that couldn't be easily replaced curb shopping!!!

    Linda - That would be awesome if it works out to meet IRL!

    Susan - No looking back for us!

    Mari & Joy - Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers for Reva.

  7. So happy you guys made the trip ok! Moving is always a difficult process.

    Will be praying for your sister.

  8. Glad you got there safely!

  9. Yay for the move (and taking Chelsie with you!)!

  10. Welcome home, Brenda and family. We are glad to hear travels went well. Yes, when you find yourself tucking socks and hair doodles into shoes and such, you know you've got plenty 'o stuff! We'll be in prayer for your sis in law. Grace and peace to you all!


Thanks for taking the time to visit with me. I enjoy your comments very much. :)
