Finally, we have an apartment picked out, a light bill scheduled to be turned on, and a date for move-in… this Friday. A light at the end of the tunnel is shining!!!
Tomorrow, I’ll be renting furniture… something I’ve never done before. Even old dogs can learn new tricks. I’m wondering what would be cheaper… to travel back to Texas and rent a small U-haul and sort through our storage to pick a few things to bring back…. or just to rent a few pieces of furniture and buy everything else new from Wal-Mart? What do you do when you have no pots, pans, towels, sheets, etc.? This move has really been like starting over for us (from scratch). Humility at it’s finest. God be praised, because I certainly don’t need to be thinking it was anything I ever did that got me into my 2,500 sf house we sold. Pride is bad. The pain we go through when God strips it away is worth it. Maybe I can hit some garage sales this weekend as well. Hmmmm?
I just wanted to check in to say thank you for allowing me to rant and rave in here while we’ve been going through our house sale, relocation, and lodging search. I know it hasn’t made for very interesting blogging, so you get lots of blog-brownie points for reading anyway!
I’m going to add a recipe or two to my Gathering Manna blog tonight… so stop in for some fall-ish fare.
And here’s a link for tomorrow’s THURSDAY CHALLENGE photo for the contest entitled “FAST”. This was a previous post that came to mind when I heard this week’s subject.
Today’s Prayer Highlights
Praising God for the Texas Voter Results on Banning Gay Marriage last night (sad that the KKK had to stain the victory with their retarded Austin rally, though), for our apartment we’re moving into this weekend, and for my husband’s job. Praying for my friend at Routon Family Homeschool who’s in a bit of a funk, for my friend Ammie’s dad, for Cannon’s liver transplant surgery (he’s a little boy from Austin who just found out a liver is available), for my mom, my friend Christi, my cousin, and my financial difficulties of late… and for us to be able to get back to homeschooling soon!
God bless you and yours. Have an awesome Wednesday, and early Thursday! I’ll probably not blog again until tomorrow afternoon.
