Merry Christmas

Our move went as smoothly as can be hoped for with a room full of boxes that will stay packed for the next four months until our final place will be ready! John and I are excited to depart Dallas on the 28th for our annual youth group ski trip, and then we will stay in Colorado for NCYM and drive back from Colorado Springs with some wonderful friends from Floridia. So, see you in the New Year and I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

What A Mess!

Well, the tree is down, the wreaths put up, and Christmas is not even over! The day is almost here, what day is that? No I am not speaking of Christmas but at last…the MOVING DAY. Below you get the low-down of how our month has gone, though it may sound like some frustration, know that we are excited about the ending…if it ever gets here.

November 27th: our “boss” tells John and me we are NOT moving until after Christmas.
November 30th: John and I go to Ft Worth to get our Christmas tree
December 1: I put up all of our Christmas decorations and clean the house so everything looks perfect.
December 4th: Our “boss” (which is our elder) says he has some bad news; we might have to move before Christmas.
December 6th: We are informed our move out date is Dec. 15th.
December 8th: I pack everything that we will not be using for the four months we are in the temporary house.
December 13th: It is realized among our staff that the youth group will be moving into the building and out of the youth house NEXT WEEK (and the basement still isn’t fixed from the flood in March, which means we are already short two classrooms and the youth are about to take the next two biggest classrooms.)
December 14th: John and I pack everything else.
December 15th: MOVING DAY…I will let you know how it went.
March: Our hopeful move in day for our newly renovated home.
