Garron and Abby Combs

Archive for the ‘Garron’s New Job’ Category

So I know it’s been forever since I have updated the blog. I apologize. It’s been so crazy here with the move and traveling and then the holidays… I just don’t know where to start. So Ill start at the beginning….


We moved to Eagle Mountain, Utah on October 29th, 2008. As posted earlier, Garron got a new job that is based out of Orem, Utah, requiring us to move. We are so excited to start this new chapter in our lives and more exciting is that we can do it together. Oh the joys of marriage! Garron’s Company was so great to let Garron fly out of Vegas for about 2 months while we worked out the financial side of moving. After everything was settled and the truck was loaded, we were on our way to Utah.


The Move

We originally were going to borrow my dad, grandpa, mom and Garron’s parents, to help us move. My mom’s good friend, Anne, has a trailer that she let us borrow and my dad has a trailer from work. We had most everything arranged to use the two trucks and two trailers. Well when it finally came down to it, we decided to rent a truck (Penske) because of the weather and space concerns as well.


Tuesday morning we went down to pick up the truck and Garron made a joke to the salesman to let us rent a 22’ for the same price as the 12’ we ordered. Well I thought the guy would just laugh in our face and say “Heck No, You crazy?” But instead, the gentleman said, “I don’t have any 22’s but I do have a 26’ I could give you for the same price.” Holy cow we were so excited. So we took the offer. We felt so lucky and blessed that we didn’t have to worry about space. We just had to worry about filling it up with gas!


So Garron, my dad, my grandpa, and Garron’s dad all helped us load up the truck. Tuesday night we slept at Garron’s parents for our last night in Vegas, as our whole life was in the truck. Wednesday morning, after some hassle, Garron headed off in the truck around 8:00 am. I was planning on leaving around 9 or 9:30 and then, because I could go faster then the truck, I would either beat or meet Garron at the house about the same time.


Well I still had to do some final touches with the move and I was sure taking my time! I had to run the Post Office and forward our mail. In the mean time, Garron’s dad was so kind to load the little things we forgot from the house, into my car. By the time I got back to the house, everything was ready and I was on my way around 10 am.

On the way up to Utah, I stopped in St. George to have lunch with my sister Kallie. Well she wanted to eat at El Pollo Loco, which I LOVE, but it does take some time. We had a great time but I didn’t end up on the road till about 1pm. So then it was another 4 hour drive to our new home.


Meanwhile, Garron was inching closer and closer to our house and getting more and more mad that I wasn’t close. He ended up getting to the house around 4 and I got there around 5pm. I came with pizza as to offset everyone’s anger towards me. We had a huge group to help us, my mom, my sister and her boyfriend, my two brothers, Garron’s speaker Art and his two boys and then I came to see everything all loaded and boxes ready for me to unload.


Thank you everyone who helped us in the huge process. We couldn’t have done it without you!


I thought I would write now about Garron’s schedule for the past 3 weeks.

He has been gone for what seems like forever, but I manage to get by. Most of my nights are spent in front of the TV for 4 or 5 hours at a time. All the while, wondering what I can eat next. I miss my Garrbear a ton but I know that once he is home, he will be home for an entire week. Also, from now on he should only go out for one week then be home for another.

So he started in North Dakota


Then he traveled to New Jersey


Then we thought he was going here


But instead he went here:


Each day he does two presentations, one at noon and the other at 6pm. Once they are done with those they usually have dinner, go back to the hotel room or drive to the next town, and then do paperwork. They have to enter some information into the computer and then they can go to bed. Garron usually doesn’t actually go to bed until about 1am. Then they are back up the next day around 8 or 9am.

I love that he is such a hard worker and that he is doing this all for his family. By him working at this new company we are able to start a family soon (which I cant wait for!!). Of course not too soon though.

Thanks babe for all you do for us.

Sunday for Garron was a long and stressful day. He had to fly from North Dakota to Minnesota then to Cincinnati then to New Jersey. Well the first flight went off great. But the second flight was where all the trouble started.

When the pilot went to land the plane, the winds on the ground were around 80mph!! Obviously they couldn’t land the plane and so they continued to fly to another airport in Ohio because they were running low on fuel. Once they landed, there was no indication on the flight plans. Garron said that everyone was so upset and were trying to get answers and couldn’t get any. They ended up staying IN THE PLANE and ON THE RUNWAY for a little over 6 HOURS!!! I know for sure I WOULD GO CRAZY!!!

Well they finally took off to the original airport (which was only a 18 minute flight). Once they got there Garron went to the desk to see how to get to New Jersey. They said that he had to RUN as fast as he could to a certain gate and get on that plane. He ran as fast as he could (he ran in high school, he pretty fast) and when he got there is was just like out of a movie. The lady shut the door on his face, so to speak. He wasn’t able to board. So he was then on Standby for another flight.

Long story short, he got on the plane and headed to New Jersey. The drama doesn’t stop here because his luggage went to New York. From here things get a little hazy. Garron didn’t tell me all of the details. But I think they drove into New York and the luggage wasn’t there and Delta didn’t know where it was. So today he had to go and buy clothes and wait for his luggage to show up. I guess…. UGH!!!

Sorry honey!

August 12th

Today is the day that Garron got the call from the company he interviews with last weekend. Dahl (the boss) called Garron to inform him that he really like him and that…


So, its looks like we are moving. This has all happen so fast, and although I have been praying about it, I still haven’t received my answer that this is what we are supposed to be doing. Garron, being the priesthood holder in our home, knows that this is where we are supposed to be headed. And so, I learn to follow his guidance and the priesthood that he has been given.

I really feel so blessed to have such a hard working husband. It seems that he never gives up or stops trying to improve our family life. He is always thinking about what is best for our family. I knew that was one of the big reasons that I married him and I truly feel blessed that he chose to be sealed to ME! I know that our family will always be taken care of. Also, I am so grateful that he honors his priesthood. He really does lead our family and I am learning to let him do that. I love him so much and love that I will never go without him.

So if anyone knows of someone that is looking to rent a 3 bedroom 2.5 bath wonderful home, let me know.

Where our Friends are from…
