A little bit of life

I am so sorry that I have been absent recently. Life has been exceptionally "interesting". There have been a lot of good things but a lot of challenging things and overall too many "things". I am a little on the worn-out side. It is difficult for me because I don't feel like I'm overcommitting to too much. I could pretty easily handle everything (by that I mean the usual rely on God's strength to be the best wife/mother/friend/businesswoman I realistically can be which is far from perfect and that is okay) except for the fact that this process of selling our house is taking up about 80% of my time. I won't get into all of the details but a few days before we were supposed to close we had some things fall through on the selling of our home and it will take an actual miracle for it to all work out. In the meantime, I have been doing everything humanly possible to figure it out. I have hit just about every complication I could and I am just tired. It is difficult because we need to move. We only have one bedroom for the kids and they WILL NOT sleep together in the same room. This means that at least one of them ends up in bed with me every night. I am all for co-sleeping, especially while nursing, but I haven't slept through the night (with the exception of two vacations) for over two years. I just want to live somewhere that we can all sleep! I don't know how it is going to all work out and I don't know why it is happening the way that it is but I do know that God is good and works all things for our good. What is costing us may be benefiting someone else who needs it more than we do. You never know. It is hard, but I do trust Him. 
Thankfully, we have had the pleasure of the company of great friends and fun activities. Recently we took a tour of the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. If you don't know, The Stanley is where Stephen King drew his inspiration for "The Shining" and it is where the Stephen King version of the movie was filmed (yes, there are two versions of the movie). It is also where we had our rehearsal dinner the night before our wedding. The hotel is absolutely stunning and the history behind it is fascinating and inspirational. If you ever get the chance to take the tour and you learn about the builder of the hotel, you will understand what I mean. Quite the entrepreneur! During our day in Estes Park the weather was very fickle. I was so glad that I took my hat with me and that I wore long pants and long sleeves. The day started out warm and sunny but turned overcast and rainy. It was still absolutely lovely seeing the rain in the mountains. I adore Estes Park and its views. It is teeming with wildlife as well; it is nearly impossible to take a trip into Estes Park and not see elk at the very least.
I should hop off of here and tackle my to-do list while the day is young. 
Please keep my family and I in your prayers as we navigate this difficult situation. I know it will work out the way that it needs to and prayers help give me that faith. 

~Love and Blessings~
