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).
