Adoption Fundraiser

Adoption Fundraiser:

For every donation made, your name will be placed on the back of a puzzle piece. Once the puzzle is complete, we will put the puzzle together, frame it, and hang it in the baby's room. Please help us raise money to welcome a little one into our home!
Mailing address:
Heath and Jamie Moore

Amarillo,TX 79110

Any and all donations are greatly appreciated! We have been trying to get pregnant for 2 years, and have recently been told that the chances of us getting pregnant on our own will be very difficult if not impossible. We have chosen not to pursue infertility treatments, but have been lead by God to adopt instead. My father was adopted, and my grandparents have said over and over that they could not see their life without him. We want the same. We want to have children, and it looks like adoption is what God has planned for us.
Thanks for your support!

Getting close to the hubby coming home...even though I still have no idea when that will be. I'm starting to get really anxious about reintegration. Don't get me wrong, I'm very excited to have my husband home again, but we are going to have to start all over on how to live and be married together. We both have changed, and changes are still happening. I'm afraid issues are going to rise up between us that are going to take a toll on our marriage. I know that's just Satan messing with my head, but it's hard not to worry about it. So when you think about it, pray for us please. Pray that both of our hearts will be softened and prepared for when we are together again. We have so many plans for when he comes home, some of them will make a huge difference in our lives. Hopefully we won't take on more than we can handle.

In other news, I'm moving to the day shift sometime in the fall (probably August or September). There are pros and cons to both, but I've decided that having a normal sleeping schedule is more important to me right now. Hoping that the hubby's job when he gets home won't interfere too much with us seeing each other. Right now he's scheduled to work nights, unless he finds a job elsewhere. Guess we will see about that.

Really praying for rain. This is the worst drought ever, and I get so nervous when there are grass fires burning in my city and in the surrounding towns. They can so easily get out of control with the dryness and all the wind we have.

Guess that's all I have right now. Thanks for listening to my thoughts. I doubt I have very many readers, especially since I don't post much. But those of you who do read my thoughts, thanks for the prayers ahead of time!

God Bless.

Once every couple of months

Guess I'll be one of those bloggers who updates about once every couple of months! Should have known that was going to happen. I am not happy with my blog layout at all, but don't have the patience to work through it and fix it how I want. It seems to be too much of a hassle for me to customize everything. Anyway...

I have been super busy lately with work. I have gotten overtime consistently for the past couple of weeks, and I don't see an end to that any time soon. I started a volunteer job today at one of the local middle schools here, working with ESL kids from multiple countries. Looks like I'll enjoy it, even though at the moment I have no idea what I'm doing! These kids are super smart, they are just having to learn a completely different language. From what I can tell, the different languages so far are: Arabic, Farsy, Burmese, and Chin. I'm sure there are several others, but I've only volunteered for one day so far. My task is to hopefully learn most of these kids names...which will be difficult since they are foreign names!

Deployment is going well. Hubby is enjoying what he is doing, and has been super busy for the past couple of months solid. I hear from him very sporadically, never knowing when he will call or email next. His 2 week leave to come home is coming up soon, and I'm super excited about that. We plan on being lazy the entire time, not setting an alarm, and just enjoying being together. I think I have finally set into a routine..only took me 4 months to do so! I miss him all the time, but seem to cope with it way better than I did even a month ago.

Guess that's all that is going on in my life. Everything is revolving around work at the moment! I don't have any pictures to share either...sorry. Hope this finds all of you well!

Deep Breath

Sorry that I don't keep up with this blog. I check everyone else's blogs regularly, but don't post on mine at all. My apologies, but I'm not going to say that I will get better. Because I probably won't!

Well, we are about a month into the deployment. I do pretty well considering. I have moments of loneliness and crying, but they are coming less frequent. If hubby and I are not on the same page about something (which has happened recently), than I am beside myself with grief. It stinks to be arguing and fighting when you are thousands of miles apart. It's becoming a true test of our marriage. A lot of changes have come our way, and will continue to do so even after he comes home. Our marriage has reached a new chapter, and I personally am having a hard time adjusting. It's not all about the deployment either, so don't think that. Even if my hubby wasn't overseas right now, our lives would still be changing. It just might not have happened all at once. So continued prayers are greatly needed and appreciated.

I have been having some major back pain for the last few weeks, and it has become increasingly worse every day. Yesterday there was not a single time that my back did not hurt. Frustrating. It's from a variety of reasons I'm sure, such as being overweight, bad posture, and my line of work. As a nurse, I bend, squat, pick up, push, pull, hold down all the time. So back pain is inevitable. I plan on seeing a chiropractor after the holidays.

I am ready for the holidays. I guess. I'm dreading going through it without my husband though. I was debating on putting up my tree and decorations this year or not. I am not planning on having anyone over during the Christmas season. And it's such a hassle to put it up when I'm the only one who will be seeing it. I love putting up the tree when my husband is home, because he enjoys it as well. But this year, it's going to be hard. I decided to go ahead and put up the tree with the ornaments. But nothing else will be put out in my house. No Christmas lights outside, and no other decorations inside. I'm keeping it simple. I decided I do need the tree though, to calm my mind and get me in the Christmas spirit. There's just something about a Christmas tree lit up at night that makes everything else in my world better.

That's all I have for now guys. Your continued thoughts and prayers our way are needed and appreciated! I sometimes have to take a deep breath and tell myself it will all be okay.

Time for Deployment.
Time for Change.

Time for Independence.
Time for Prayer.
Time for deep breaths.

Time for being thankful.
Time for taking advantage of time.

Time for leaning on God more than ever.
Time for leaning on friends and family.
Time for allowing my husband to spread his wings.
Time to support him, no matter how hard it is.

It's time.

Creativity Unavailable!

I am such a slacker! Sorry for not keeping up with blogging. I have found that I am not creative at all, and I'm sure you are tired of reading and reading my thoughts, with no creativity behind it!

Not much has been going on. I've been keeping myself rather busy, I'm not home much unless I'm sleeping.

Our AC went out AGAIN! Hubby and I both are losing our patience with the company our warranty sent us to. It's who we used last time, and their customer service is horrible. Hubby called the warranty this morning, and they said to call them again tomorrow morning if we haven't heard anything from the AC company. So far...nothing.

At least the temperature isn't in the 90's like it was last time our AC quit.

I have jumped back on the bandwagon with weight watchers. Plus, I have added exercising to my weight loss goal! I wasn't doing that last time. My goal is to head to the gym every day that I'm off work. So far, I have been successful! Granted, I've only done it for a week ;)

The fair is in town! I haven't been in 3-4 years, and plan on going tomorrow for lunch and eating all the fried goodiness (notice that weight watchers will NOT be in my plan tomorrow!)

And..that's it. I'll leave you with a picture :) This is when the hubby and I first met and were "thinking" about dating. (2003)
