So here we are at our first Thursday Thirteen of the new year. A whole lot has happened since the last time I did one of these. There's a reason for that. I've been avoiding doing one since things were so...crazy. Without further ado, here goes!

1. Packing will be the next thing on my to do list as we have to get ready for our big move.

2. Our big move is no longer to Tennessee. Long story. Really long story.

3. Instead we are moving back to the Valley. And, by the valley I mean the Phoenix area. Yes, really.

4. I'm already sweating at the thought. I need to invest in good fans.

5. In related news, my husband has a new job. Brand new. He started this week.

6. Did I mention we will need to list and sell our home in Wyoming? Oh yes, and figure out where we will live long term in Arizona. Prayers appreciated.

7. Family and friends in AZ are excited while friends in WY are most decidedly not. We're, of course, torn.

8. Homeschooling with our daughter is going well and will be continued throughout all the craziness. We have had a great Christmas break though.

9. One of my goals this year is more reading. So, if you have any books to recommend please let me know.

10. Another goal is to journal more. I need to use these adorable journals if I'm going to keep them. And I am. Going. to keep them.

11. Currently I am doing a devotional I love called Comparison Trap. It's on the YouVersion Bible App and really speaks to something I struggle with frequently. Anybody else deal with comparing themselves to others?

12. It's amazing how much a vacation can mess with your sleep schedule. It's fun but tiring.

13. Vacations also mess with our 8 year old's moods and sleep. If you were in the grocery store yesterday and saw a little girl trying to "hold it together" while sniffling back tears with a red spotted face, I'm sorry you had to witness that. It's life.
