Our Destiny

Why is procrastinating so easy for me to do?  I dunno but here is my first official post from Albuquerque--it won't be great, but it's something!

For those who know my darling hottie of a husband, Jacob Dean,  you just might know that his family's heritage is very closely associated with trailer parks.  Thus...we truly believe that it is Our Destiny to now be working in a trailer.  Yes, you heard it right, Jake is helping to manage a mobile dentist trailer.  Awesome, huh?  Those Hutchings just can't avoid trailers-it is too deeply engrained in the blood!  I wish I had a sweet picture of it, but I don't.  Just believe me-it is AWESOME!  He loves it and has been learning A LOT about managing, about the dental industry, and about bachelorhood (for 3 months at least while we closed on our home here).  I'd like to say he's happy we're finally here with him-but I'm guessing most nights he's wondering why he didn't enjoy the peace and quiet more while we were away!

On the other hand, I am finally learning what it's like to actually have 3 small kids and have to take them everywhere with me. I had it way easier than I realized.  Somehow getting a grocery cart to contain 3 bodies plus tons of groceries is no easy feat!  And let me tell you-my grocery carts contain all 3 bodies because this momma doesn't do crazy kids monkeying around the store.  Call me anal-I call myself anal.  It's okay.

Thus--because all of my analness and Jake's figuring out work and school and such-our family has officially adopted a new mission statement-CHILAX!  It's a cross between chill and relax.  I have issues.  Control issues.  They are bad.  I often find myself chanting "chilax, chilax, chilax" just let them get dirty.  It's actually been a huge success (at least for this week).

Anyhow-we are happy here and think we will really, really love it.  Our last few weeks have been filled with this kind of stuff:

I don't know why I don't have any pics of Jake.  Note to self-hold the camera sometimes.  Anyhow, I will try and update more but no promises since I have a string of breaking those kind of promises.  Thank you for all of your updates (I do check those) and we love you guys!

I love the word chillax, Grant tells it to me often! BUt, I don't know any Hutchings who lived in trailers, Andersons, a few!! I want to see before and after pics. I'm so glad you are enjoying it there. Miss you guys!

i want to see more pics of your new beautiful house!!!!
I'm so excited you guys are closer- my goal is to see y'all at least twice a year- one of which is us going to your neck of the woods- we have much lost time to make up for :)

I am glad that you are settled! I would love to see some pictures of your house - I am sure you have done some cute projects. Although I know you will love it there.... we miss you guys.

Congrats on your move & finally being together again! You should try pushing the grocery cart & pulling the kid cart-it's like a train & you get TONS of stares, but I used to do it all the time & it helps!!

Your kids are growing up! I love those two sneak peeks at them. What a fun family - I'm excited for your new adventures. We wish we were neighbors. If New Mexico doesn't work out, AZ is not that far away!!! ;)

I'm so happy that you are loving it out there. We miss you!

I think I tried telling you once or twice how lucky you were. Grocery carts are always a nightmare--ask mom about her experience with 3 of my kids hanging onto a grocery cart (it'll make your resolve to keep them IN the cart even stronger). We're glad you're loving ALB, and do post pics of your home!

That last comment was from me...sorry about the "mother" thing. Long story.

Hi Emily - we're coming through your town this week. Check your hotmail acct (if this goes to a different one). I sent you an email. Thanks!

You're still the same 'ol "Jewkes" and I love your randomness. It would be entertaining to see you do your anal mom-thing in the grocery store. In any case! Hope you're loving New Mexico and enjoying life w/ your men. :)
