We made it!

It was a harrowing adventure, fueled by rain in six states, 2 hours of bumper-to-bumper traffic, a headache, two restless kids that kept hitting each other, and a 24’ truck with no steering and brakes…but we made it.

This move has been blessed by the Lord; His Grace is written all over it. From the many, many hands that have helped to get the house together, to the friends that have come through with helping hands, lifting boxes and holding cranky babies and playing with restless kids. To the job situation: Jermaine is enjoying his new job and I’ve got some sticks in the fire (that’s not right, is it?) – you know what I mean, I’ve got some interviews and stuff going on.

Things are still a bit rustic; we’re washing baby bottles in the bathroom because the kitchen counter isn’t due in until later this month. Appliances are due to be delivered today, so it’s been two days with a refrigerator that only Indiana Jones would attempt to get to (and I’m no Indiana Jones) and no other appliances. The oven won’t be in until late June, so we’re looking forward to many grilled dinners and cereal. There are snakes that need to find a new place to live since they cannot stay in my garage or backyard. Things aren’t perfect, but they’re great….if that makes any sense?

We’re looking forward to the dust settling (in more ways than one).

Glad you made it! Sorry you are gone, though. I'm sure you are excited about the whole new adventure and keep looking at it through the sames eyes the kids are using, they always see the glass as half full, even if it is a bit rustic (kind of like camping).

Love the newly painted windows in Amelle & Amaya's room. Where is the bed linen?

John was so nervous for you to drive that truck when we left the storage place Friday!! He called me twice to ask me if you were gonna be ok! I was really sad, but knowing we already have plans to get together makes me feel much better!! Take care, miss you guys!

Just like a mother to ask about bed linen... We got in after 11pm, after 7 hours of driving and weren't up for the task of unloading the truck. I can assure you that the beds were properly made by the next evening!
