Trials and Tribulations

I know I haven't blogged in quit awhile but a lot has happened over the past 8 weeks. The beginning of October Aaron was on his way home from work in Tucson late at night and a pack of wild mustangs where on the road. He hit two and killed one but thank God Aaron walked away unharmed. Our truck had body damage but nothing internal or mechanical. Unfortunately, Aaron's boss wasn't willing to help or give Aaron more work and our insurance pulled a fast one on us and to make a long story short we had to pay for everything out of pocket. I started working part time for Apple and I'm making $200 a week which is no where close to what I need to make. Aaron has put in an application to over 150 places and not one interview.
We have been pulled to our knees and asking God what we should do and what the answer is. With much heaviness in our hearts we will be walking away from our home and moving back to Texas with my mom. Good news is just today I was able to secure Aaron and I jobs with AT&T in Lubbock to start right after we get there. That is such a wonderful blessing and I really thank God for that.
The girls are good and I am just sad for them to be losing their cute rooms Aaron and I put time into. Little jellybean is growing and i am now 15weeks. The day before Thanksgiving I am having the big ultrasound to see if its a he or she! We will be spending Thanksgiving here and then leaving the next day. We are asking for all prayers and moral support from everyone. It was a hard decision but Aaron and I are getting more comfortable with the idea. I will be blogging more to keep everyone updated on whats going on :)

I am so sorry you guys have been through so much and have to make such hard decisions. I am praying for you all and hope you guys can make an easy transition once you make it back to Lubbock. I am so thankful you guys have found jobs here and that is one less thing to stress about. Good luck with everything and I am still in Lubbock, so if there is anything I can do to help out, please let me know!! Cant wait to know if little jellybean is a he or she.....we dont find out for a while..i'm so anxious as I am sure you are too...how exciting!!!
