We are In

Posted by eljamieson at 9:41 PM
After what felt like an eternity of waiting we are finally in. This is a beautiful home and we are blessed to be here. The kids are loving all the space and having their own beds back. I loved that this morning I was able to get up and get ready without waking anyone up or trying to eat my breakfast with Vaughn sleeping on a mattress 2 feet away.

The thing about moving is that it takes awhile to get unpacked, well that's not entirely true, if your name is Tracy Dunham and Arlene Wells you unpack your entire house in a day. But my name isn't so it's taking me awhile. I've decided to take a one room at a time approach. I am happy to say I got the master bedroom, closet and bathroom unpacked, cleaned and presentable. I don't have pictures up or any of the little touches that makes it feel like home but when I wake up tomorrow morning I won't be tripping over boxes and suitcases. When I went downstairs to make my reward of popcorn I did notice a box of clothes that hadn't been brought up yet which means that I have more unpacking to do in the master but I'll get there.

That's the thing about unpacking, just when you think every box is empty and you have found just the perfect place for everything, you turn around and your husband has unloaded the rest of the stuff from the garage he didn't do yesterday. Oh well I'll get there and I'm taking my time, I'm not killing myself to get it done.

Tuesday I'm off to the condo to scrub it until it shines because the least I can do is give it back to Alan in the condition he lent it to us in. I know I've said this already but my family is blessed beyond measure. I feel a bit like this scripture today

"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." Luke 6:38. I'm not sure that we have given enough to receive this wonderful gift but it is something to aim towards.

Off to bed now, my nice warm bed that when I look out the window I'll see a snow covered field full of hay bales. For those of you 'country' kids you will understand the pure peace this brings my soul while I snuggle with my book under the covers.
