God is good!

Andy has now been back to work for a whole week. There have been a few difficulties with him being gone for so long. After a couple months of inactivity, the company takes you out of the system for security reasons and it has taken awhile to get him back in and get all his new equipment (they all have ipads now which he is having fun with!!) So for the past week he has been riding along with someone else while he waited. It's turned out to be a blessing because it has given him extra time to get used to the job again. But today he's back in full force!!! I'm a bit nervous for him. They have put a very big target on his back and if he isn't able to keep his performance numbers up then his job could be in danger. We knew this would probably be the case, but it's been a bit more stressful then we originally thought it would be. But we know that God is on control and if this is where Andy is supposed to be, then the job will be protected, and if not, we know He will provide a better job for him.
Yesterday I got some good news! It looks like I will be taking care of this baby full time in our house! The family had to give her curent day care a months notice so it will be at least a few more weeks before I would start, but this was definitely an answer to prayer. I love staying home an taking care of my husband and house (and dogs of course :) and I'm excited that I can continue to do that while bringing in extra income!
Well...thats all for now!!! I have a huge pile of laundry that needs to be put away, and I think I've stalled enough! :(

Well...today i sent my husband back to work! He's been slowly recovering more and more over the last couple months and is finally able to drive without problems! A major answer to prayer! Over the last six months he's had numerous tests and done lots of physical therapy but nothing seemed to work. It just seems like this was something that needed to run its course. He's not completely back to where he was. He still has pretty intense headaches that through him off, but those are fewer and far between. We werent expecting it to take six months but thanfully now he is back to work! Unfortunately due to some issues we've had with the company over the last several months, we have to continue to battle with the disability department to make sure all things are squared away so they dont come back to bite us later and possibly risk his job.
My job ended a few weeks ago so now I'm back to looking again. Ive had a few interviews and even have a trial day taking care of a baby that could turn into a full time job. Im hoping this one works out cause I would eventually have the option of watching her here at home which would be ideal. But either way I know I'll find the right job for me!
We also celebrated are second anniverary earlier this month with a camping trip! We've never done anything like this together before and it was sure interesting! We had a few issues with our tent and on the last night our air matress popped and we ended up sleeping with roots, sticks, and rocks poking us in the ribs all night, but it was still fun and of course make for interesting stories! The dogs had a great time as well! We learned that Abby is a bug killer! If spiders or mosquitoes hover around her face, she'll get em! :)
Other than that, life has been pretty uneventful! We're looking forward to life getting back to normal!!!

Andy update

Yesterday he went to see a specialist. He ordered an ENG test that he believes will show whats going on in his head. He doesn't seem to think it's anything too serious, but whatever it is has been really bad and long lasting. We're just really hoping to finally get an accurate diagnosis so it can be properly treated. He's getting VERY anxious to get back to work. Going a little stir crazy sitting aound the house, but I've been keeping him busy with housework since I've been working. He definitely doesn't like that as much! :)

Yesterday it poured! I don't think I've ever seen that much rain fall in such a short period of time! Here's some pics of our flooding! Thankfully it never reached our house!

4th of July

We had a pretty laid back 4th. Andy and I decided to just hang out and spend the day at home. We got some projects done that we had been putting off and then we had our own bbq! Marinated grilled chicken, grilled potatoes, and grilled corn on the cob. SOOO good! My man is good behind the grill!
