Greetings, Forsche, and welcome. You asked:

<<I havn't had a problem yet, but I do need a better strategy for transferring money from stocks or stock funds to bonds, especially if the market is down at the time. Do I wait a year or two and forgo the five years of expenses in bonds?>>

In years when the stock market is down you use the bonds for income. Bonds get replenished only when the stock market is up. And, yes, you may use up several years of your bond ladder in the process of waiting for the stock market recovery.
