Well our last day at this Walmart is on friday. Then we are going to spend some time with Matt's family before we have to leave and then we will head out. We have decided that this time we are going to go through Wyoming, Utah, Idaho and Iowa. I tried to talk Matt into going through Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Utah and Idaho. But I can't talk him into going that way.

I have got put down to part time when I got to this Walmart and I had no idea it was part time. The manager made it sound like it was full time. So now with them doing that I have lost all my benefits except medical. I am so mad. I even lost my vacation and everything even though I have been with the company for 7 years. So when I go back to Montana I am still going to part time so I have decided that I am going to go back to school.

That is the gist of our crazy life right now.

Another Move......UGH!!!

Well the condo association came back and said we cannot live at Grandma's condo. They said we are monetary renters and that we are not immediate family to Matt's Grandma. However, if a Grand kid owned the place then a Grandparent would be immediate family. Who knows it is one of there dumb rules.

So... it is back to Montana we go. We will head out in June and come back around August and pick up our stuff at Matt's parent's house.

The Big Move

Well we finally made it to Palos Hills, IL which outside Chicago.
Let me tell you Matt and I have had the biggest journey and we have ran into so many problems.

It all started the day that we picked up the trailer and like our last two moves it had to snow. What a given but this time I mean it really snowed....ALL DAY!!!!
With all the bad weather Matt and I decided to wait one more day to leave so hopefully the roads would be better.
We were so sad to leave Montana. We will miss all the friends we have made and everyone we work with. We will miss the mountains and the outdoors. Also everything the west has to offer.

Our first day on our trip everything was going real good until we got just out of Sheridan, WY when Matt's blazer started smoking. We pulled over and Matt thought his rear differential leaking. That is not good cause it can be lots of money. We made it to Sheridan and the only people we could find to help us was a traveling fix it truck. Come to find out Matt had changed some kind of oil underneath his car and he did not put the cap on all the way so it fell out and it started leaking. Not as bad as what we thought but for a $2 part and some $14 oil it costed us $200. We did make it to our destination that night which was Gillette, WY.

The second day everything is going well except for the crappy weather we ran into on our way to South Dakota. Everything is going well after we make out of the bad weather. We stayed the night some where I just don't remember where obviously I was pretty dang tired.

The third day we get to Sioux Falls and our luck ran out when we got pulled over because Matt did not have a front licence plate on his blazer. We finally make it to Madison, WI. We stayed in the crappiest hotel, I felt like I had bugs crawling me all night.

The fourth day we finally made it to our final destination PALOS HILLS. YEAH I did not want to travel anymore. We get to Matt's Grandpa's condo. With no one living there for like 3 years it needed some cleaning. 2 days after we are getting settled we discover a wet spot on the carpet and come to find out the dishwasher is leaking. We have to hurry and move everything so we can try to get everything taken care of. We got everything taken care of but there is a mildewy smell in our Condo and it is taken me forever to get rid of the smell.

We started working at the Hodgkin's Walmart three days after we rolled into town and man they do things so different and everything is so different. We realize things are going to take time for us to get used to everything. However but our third day of working there I had gone home in tears and Matt had come home pissed off. We definitely hate this Walmart and we are so ready to transfer and we are questioning why we moved out here cause we really aren't saving a whole lot of money for Matt to go flying.

Our weekend finally came at work and Matt and are ready to go to the city for date. Nope we can't do that cause we received a letter from the board of the Condos saying that no one can live in the condos without the owner living there unless you are spouse, grandparent, son, daughter, mother or father of the owner. So now we get to fight the board on this matter but it is all up to them if we get to stay here or not. If it is a no then we have to head back west.

So as you can see we have a lot of drama and we feel like our lives have been on a soap opera. We will keep you posted on what else happens.

March 2010!!!
Well March has been a busy month. Matt and I went to Utah and visited my parents, grandparents, and my sister and her family. While we were in Utah we found out that my Grandpa had to have surgery on his tong cause he had cancer on it. Visiting my parents was nice. It had been a long time since I had gone to there house and stayed. We went back to my sister's house and stayed a night and then we had to be on a plane the next morning to fly to Chicago. When we got to Chicago Matt's sister was in the hospital. Then we are not having much luck with the move, so now we have to come up with a plan B and we better come up with a plan C just in case. We spent most of the visit cleaning Matt's old bedroom. Not a very fun vacation. We did go to the Zoo one day with Matt's sister and her family. That was a lot of fun. After Chicago we flew back to Utah. We had the opportunity to see by brother and see his new house. It is very nice. I am happy for my brother. We got to spend time with the kids. They are getting so big. We went back home the day after we flew back into Utah. On our way home we got pulled over outside West Yellowstone because they claimed "Matt ran them off the road." Matt did run anyone off the road, the cop gave us a ticket because of what the other person said and she had to go "98" to catch up to us, because hey she was about 6 miles behind us when we passed her as she had another car pulled over. So as I say again we did not have a pleasant vacation.

Well we did not do much for Valentine's Day. Matt had to work and I had to work early the next day. I did make us a nice pot roast dinner. Other than that, that is all we did. Maybe next year we will both have the day off. We will see.

Well I can't believe I am already 27.
Another year has come and gone before my eyes.
Matt and I did not get to do much for my birthday;
however we did go try a new restaurant in Belgrade. It was OK.
The good was not the greatest in my opinon but of course they messed
up my order.
We met up with Geoff and he came out with us.

I can't believe January is already done as well. Only a couple
of more months until we move!! I am so excited. Hopefully everything
works and we are able to move. Matt and I are both ready.
