Chiefs get a new coach

You probably don't care, but I do.

Daily News Sports Editor
Don Nachbaur, who resigned Tuesday after one season as head coach of the AHL’s Binghamton Senators, is expected to be named the next head coach of the WHL’s Spokane Chiefs.
Two sources told The Daily News on Tuesday that Nachbaur left Binghamton, the AHL affiliate of the NHL’s Ottawa Senators, in order to become the Chiefs’ head coach.
"It is a difficult day for me as I step down as the head coach of the Binghamton Senators,” Nachbaur said in a statement. “This was not an easy decision for me, but it is based on personal reasons and I think it is the right choice for both myself and my family."
Nachbaur resigned last summer after five seasons as head coach of the Tri-City Americans and signed with Ottawa. Binghamton went 36-35-6-3 with Nachbaur at the helm, but didn’t make the playoffs.
Nachbaur was a fan-favourite in Tri-City as the Americans had unprecedented success with him as head coach. His run finished with back-to-back U.S. Division pennants.
The Chiefs and Americans have a tremendous rivalry that is about to get even hotter.
While Nachbaur moved to Binghamton, his family stayed in Richland, Wash. In fact, his son, Daniel, played for the bantam Spokane Jr. Chiefs, one of the teams that played in the 42nd annual KIBIHT.
With Spokane, Nachbaur will replace Hardy Sauter, who lost his job after last season when the club chose not to exercise an option.

This has to happen right when I am moving. Closer to the Tri-Cities than to Spokane. This is a great move on the Chiefs part, me thinks. I just want to be there during the first game. Something tells me that the Tri fans aren't going to like this. One. Bit.
Consider my first Tri @ Spokane game ticket purchased.

Friday nights

Friday nights.
They used to consist of getting ready for a big date, dances, or the big football game!
Now they consist of waiting patiently for the Hubby to walk through the door, me running out the door, giving the Hubby a quick kiss and yelling, "Money on the table for pizza! Bye!" as the tires to the minivan screech in an effort to keep up the the pressure I am putting on the gas pedal.

I'm outta there.

And where do I go?


I don't know why in the world they decided to name their restaurant, but whatever. The yumminess makes up for it.

Who do I go with?
Why, these lovely ladies! Jolie and Bernadette.
I love these gals.

This girl loves everything sushi. She even ordered Oysters at dinner. Ew, She says they were GREAT, but I will just take her word for it. She's my irreverent friend who asks me "Is it true that Mormons have to have 7 kids or they won't go to Heaven?" She shares my love for gossip magazines and she is a neat freak. That woman has the cleanest house I have ever seen.
I met Jolie about 5 1/2 years ago when I started working at WAMU up on the south hill. She trained me, and we had babies together. Not together, but you know what I mean. Now we are both stay at home mommies!
Her adorable Jake and Gracie are buds, as are Stella and Madelynn.

And Miss Bernadette.
She's been my BFF for the last 6 1/2 years. I met her at church and she was the first one at church to notice the huge rock on my finger the day after I got engaged, so I new we would bond. I can always count on her to help me through tough times and to make me laugh. She's my shopping partner and the best price negotiator around. Seriously.
You should see the girl yard sale.
Plus she's super crafty. Check her out here.

ANYWAY, back to my story.
After filling our stomachs with raw food, it's time to hit Scrapper's Attic. They host Crop Night every Friday, so all us mommas can get away and have adult conversation. It's free and you can bring all your scrapbook crap and work on other projects. It's really nice because you can shop for stuff as your scrapbooking. Win-win.

Hard at work.
Jolie's sister came too, but for some reason I didn't get her picture.

This is how I scrapbook. Or maybe telling a story. Or both.
You can always count on your BFF to take a flattering shot.

The lady I will miss the most.
Not Jolie, the lady behind her.
See her?
This lady can talk.
And talk.
And talk.
And...well, you get the picture.

I will miss these gals and our weekly night out.

P.S. Clancy left about 3 hours ago for Yakima, and so far so good. Did a little crying and then got over it. Now if I can survive tonight, SCORE.
No offers on the house yet. Prayers much needed please. :)

Best gift ever.

My co-worker Amy gave this to me before Stella was born. She has been using it for the last 2 months and has gotten really good at jumping! Entertainment for hours! (Okay, more like 20 minutes, but still.....)

I hate denim.

I would just like the world to know that I have just conquered another pair of pre-pregnancy jeans. Woot!

Either that, or they have finally stretched out after trying them on every other week.

Notice my purdy roses behind the girls??? I didn't kill it! Woot!

Thought I would blog as I watch the Bachelorette.
I can hardly keep my eyes open.

I like:
Chris L

Don't like:
Jonathan-ANNOYING. Too paranoid.
Kasey-Please don't sing ever again. A tatoo is NOT what Ali is looking for, FYI.
Wrestler guy-I just don't trust him.

I love reality TV.

Ooooo Ali's giving out the roses in "THE MOST DRAMATIC ROSE CEREMONY YET."

Good night!

House for sale!

Clancy got offered the Operating Manager position for the Selah/Moxee Irrigation District. I am so proud of his hard work and, like I told him after his first interview with them, I knew all along he was going to be offered it. Thus explains why I had this feeling that we needed to work on making our house ready to sell in the event of moving.

Good thing we did!

Once Clancy got offered the position, we focused on fixing some things on our house, and put it on the market.

Clancy will have his first day at SMID on June 21st. We are really lucky that my sister's fiancee lives in Yakima and is willing to give Clancy a place to stay for a couple of weeks. I will stay here with the kids and pray for our house to sell. I have never been so scared in my life. Not scared of a new place or the new job. Scared because I am going to be home alone with 3 kids day and night.....


I know I may be a little dramatic about this, but I can't help it! It really scares me that there is not end in sight at the moment. I don't know if I will be by myself for 8 days, 8 weeks or 8 months. It scares me.

I just have to keep praying and put my full trust in Heavenly Father.

I know it will all be okay. I just have to make sure that we keep getting out of the house, go to the Y, park, pool and other fun places.
Plus when I really need a break, I can go to Fred Meyer's, put Livia and Gracie in the child watch center thing they have and shop. Hahahaha!

I just have to keep praying and put my full trust in Heavenly Father.
We have lowered the price today by $5k, so we are hoping for some more foot traffic. Please put us in your prayers that an offer will come soon.

Or you can copy and paste this one.
