When mommy won't let you bring your snack to your bed then you gotta think outside the box. Bring the bed to the snack!!!
She also asked today why I was laughing as I worked on the computer. I was texting with Brian at the time so I told her because her daddy was funny. She asked why he is funny and I said because he was smart. I told the she was smart and asked if I was smart. She said, "No." When I looked over at her to find out why she smiled at me and said, "You are smartie pants!!"

We bought a mini van with built in GPS. The system has three voice choices. One is a male that sounds like a robot, one is a female robot and the last one is Angie. Well, the display actually calls it USA - Michelle but they stole my voice. It used to completely wig me out every single time I heard her give me directions.
Finally I am getting used to her but yesterday while driving Brian put his hand on mine in the passenger seat and said, "This is not going to sound right but the GPS sounds so much like you I just tune it out and don't realize someone is giving me directions I am supposed to follow. I don't even hear her most the time."

Yesterday Ashlyn was asking for dad this and dad that. I am rarely allowed to help, hold her or do anything at all. Just dad. I asked, "Don't you like me?" To which she replied, "I like you better than Peter." I confirmed - she means Gina's Peter. You aren't forgotten Ms Espina Gina!! We love and miss you. ❤️

The kids are noticing funny things that make us laugh. As I write Ashlyn is asking why daddy is pumping gas, where are the workers that have to do it for us and suggesting maybe they are just inside the shop waiting. Earlier she thought it was hilarious that daddy was allowed to drive at all and we didn't have to call a driver. The GPS tells us to go so many miles then turn and her friend is named Miles and she told us that Miles didn't need to turn there.

Our household belongings are now sea freight and on the ocean slowly making their way to Houston. This morning Ashlyn asked us, "Where's Johnny?" He left this morning on a cruise with his family so Ben told her he is on a boat. "OHHHH!! With our stuff." I hope his cruise accommodation is a little bit better than a freighter.
Discussing sharing rooms in Houston and who is with who Ashlyn got REALLY EXCITED! "I will share with mom and dad and we can have three pillows!" That's not what we had in mind. We get fly told her that even though we have a king bed here that fits three pillows here in Saudi, our Texas bed is a queen size and only two pillows are going to it there.

This is where I am right now. Full cup status with peanuts making messes. If you've been in my living room in the last two weeks you've seen the "evidence" that has been left. The packers are gone. The house is nearly empty. Home school should finish on Thursday. I'm researching schools in Woodlands Texas and cell phone plans and what cars to buy and where our house should be. Just too much for my brain and emotions these days but I hope very soon to be able to say again, "I've got this." And "Challenge conquered!" Thanks to all who helped with kids, taking away donate stuff and bringing meals now and when I had shingles. You are all angels to me!
