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.
