Move Date

April 4th is our official 'rent the truck' move date although hopefully we will do a good bit of moving this week. We are going to do our best to take over the hard to carry/awkward things and leave furniture and boxes for move day. The beauty of moving out of your parents house... you don't have to get it all in one day! A little before, a little after... eventually it will get done!

Which reminds me... if you are strong and find yourself bored on April 4th, please feel free to come over and pick up a box ;~) Seriously, if there are any volunteers out there, please let me know... we could use the help ;~) If I put a smiley face after it, does it seem any less desperate?

I wanted to thank everyone for the kind words about my worrying! I know you are all right but it was good to hear! Instead of writing my comments back on that post, I thought I would add them here.

ETW - thanks for the encouragement about single income living... this budgeting thing is hard... more so when you have kids!

Amy - thanks... we are thrilled too! Dinner at our place... you and the FH sometime soon??

Kara - amen sister... worrying is all I do these days. Trying to give it over though... it causes me nothing but ulcers!

Nancy - aren't you the logical one! I love that thought... He wouldn't have provided if He didn't have a plan! Now to just trust in it!

Kristin - oh I know about the not packing... I have done this once or thrice before... and with Chase, yeah... it's that much easier to procrastinate!

In Sung - Oh, you know I am having a playdate at my house this summer!!! Details to follow!

Johnnie - don't I know it... we are lucky in a lot of respects when it comes to the economy but it's definitely tight! I get the daycare thing too... lots of my friends do daycare but for me, it's not the right choice.

Em - excellent reference! Love the fish and loaves parallel... gives me something to dwell on. Thanks!

Kathi - I don't think we would consider buying. It's not like a family house... she only lived in it for 2 years before she passed. And they will want to sell it at its highest and we will want to buy at the lowest so I don't see that mixing well ;~) For the time being though... it will work out great! I am with you on the praise music... lately I have been listening to a lot of THIS CD... oh yeah, rocking the christian VeggieTales.

Adrienne - You do have a point... it does sound too good to be fearful!

Thanks again for all your encouraging words... as the 4th gets closer, I find myself getting more and more excited!

On an entirely different note... a few pictures from dinner last night.

An interestingly placed cherry tomato... I can promise you, this was not staged!

I just love this face!

Being silly with daddy... next he learns the spoon on the nose!

Lord have mercy, I love this kid.

A nice, relaxed move beats the last minute rush around and box things up kind of move, like our last one!

I am so glad that y'all are moving into a place that has more space, but also is going to help you meet your goals. It will all work out with the new bills. Micah took an almost 25% cut in pay last year and God just made it happen with the amount we had to work with. He was faithful and never once did we go without or not pay a bill on time. Can't wait to see pics of the new place!!

YES YES YES! Very soon... My mommy's visiting soon, but with the warmer weather, we'll have to make a day of it :)

Let the countdown begin! I, too, can't wait to see the pictures!

I'm so happy y'all have some place to go. BUT, I so don't envy the moving. I HATED moving. And, my lease is up the end of Oct and I'd love to find somewhere else since it'll just be me now and I don't need 3 bdrms, but did I mention how much I HATED moving??

Love the pictures, the 3rd is my favorite, even with the bowl covering his face, you know there is a smile behind it.
