It is OFFICIAL: on January 28, bright and early, Daniel will be entering this parking lot to begin his orientation for his NEW JOB!!! 🙂
Suddenly, I am excited … but scared and nervous … but mostly I’m excited.
This will be a long process to completely move our family to an adjoining state about 4 hours from where we live now – but in God’s providence, He gave Daniel a job where his parents actually live at the half-way point between “here” and “there”.
We are SO ready to start taking action … Daniel started packing his books last night. This alone will be a daunting task as we have 7 full bookcases in our living room, bookcases in every bedroom (in most cases more than 1), and in a hallway – and there are about 15 bookcases in the garage!! Plus we have 2 rows of “kitchen” cabinets and 5 floor cabinets in our storage room of VCR tapes (yep, VCR!!). We have a friend who is providing us with boxes from his work – boxes they’d normally throw out or recycle. We’re going to need A LOT of boxes!! Thankfully, some of those boxes will go to our former school, friends, and the local Goodwill too.
I took down the many, many pictures of our kids from the stairwell yesterday too (I am painting the oak frames kind of a platinum color eventually) … and already things are beginning to look just a little like WE ARE MOVING! Not that we are officially moving our whole family for a few months yet – but we’re going to need to work steady until then.
I will be blogging about the process, no doubt – mostly to just motivate myself and to document our progress … Somehow I don’t foresee an eBook by me about “How to Move Your Family Across State Lines in 5 Months or Less”. 🙂 At least not an eBook that would be in any way helpful or in demand – although it could prove to be very amusing!!
Anyway, THANK YOU to all who have prayed with us and for us … who have read my blog and my ramblings … who leave me sweet, encouraging comments … and who are my friends!! I look forward to sharing our new experiences with you!
