New adventures

So I have taken the plunge and ordered Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit. I am going to start selling essential oils as a supplement to our income. I am not only going to be selling essential oils but also making things for my Etsy shop. I will post a link when I get it up and running. I am very excited to start this new venture. I have also recently discovered Erin Condren Life planners so I will be purchasing one soon! I absolutely love being organized. I will post pictures when I get it in and how I set it up.

Sleepless nights and Miniature Heart Attacks

My husband passed his inspector’s class yesterday and we drove home the 12 hours to Tennessee. We were so excited. This is going to open up so many new opportunities for us. We were in such a good mood all the way home. We jammed out to all our favorite songs and the drive just seemed to fly by.

Fast forward, we are in bed and he has just fallen asleep. I go to plug my phone up and oh shit! His paperwork with his social security number on it was supposed to be in the bag with all our chargers and it wasn’t. Shit shit shit. So I get up and call the hotel. The lady promises to check lost and found and to call me when its found. So I spent a sleepless night worrying about what could happen and how mad he is going to be. I check my phone a million times. I woke up for the last time at 5:30 am and they still haven’t called. That can’t be good. I get up and let the dogs out and call again. They weren’t in lost and found but the manager will talk to the maids when they arrive for the day and call me back. Great. I’m never going to sleep now. I spend an hour in bed just worrying myself to death. I am literally sick to my stomach. I just know someone is going to steal our identity and ruin our lives. I can’t just lay there and freak out anymore. I get up and finish unloading the car. I see his binder with his work stuff. Please Lord let him have picked that paperwork up. YES!!!!!! It was in there! Thank you Jesus! I have never been so relieved in my life. Oh my gosh. That was the most stressful night I have ever spent. I almost need an Irish Coffee after that. Good Lord.

Moral of this story: check your hotel room a million times before you and never, ever leave important paperwork just laying around.

An Introduction

I have always loved writing and reading. I would someday like to be a writer. I am married to a pipeliner, he does non-destructive testing on the pipelines and helps to make sure they are safe. We travel all over the United States for his work. We live in a camper while we are on the road and have a house in Tennessee. We have 3 miniature schnauzers that travel with us, Zeus, Athena and Freya. You will read a lot about them on here, they are my world, my children. I have been married to my husband for 2 years, we have been together for 4. I have been traveling with for 3 and a half years. The first job I ever went on with him was in the middle of nowhere in West Virginia. We were in the mountains and it was beautiful. It was hard to get used to though. I was in a hotel room for 9-10 hours a day, 6 days a week by myself. It was lonely. It was the first time I had ever been away from my family for more than a couple days. It was the best decision of my life. He proposed to me there, after only 4 months of dating. We both fell hard and we knew what we wanted. We were married a little over a year later in my hometown. Since then we have been gone more than we have been home. It hasn’t been easy but I wouldn’t change a thing.
