It's been a while, I know. Things have been a little busy.
For starters, we moved. How on earth we managed to get as much stuff as we have into 430 square feet of apartment, I will never know. After several loads, and even more coffees, and with the help of some very important people, we made it in alive. We are now joyously experiencing 1700 square feet, plus a garage, a driveway, and front and back yards. [Praise the Lord] What an immense blessing.
On top of moving, December has begun, and so there is complete freedom to decorate for Christmas. We got our first Christmas tree and decorated it together. I jazzed up the wreath for our front door and after 2 or 3 attempts got it to hang properly. Now it only scares me to death once in a while when the wind knocks it against the glass. Pointsettias and vases full of ball ornaments sit on corners of desks and shelves. And our only nativity set rests proudly in the front hall. (Why doesn't the fisher price nativity set have any shepherds? This confuses me. There are sheep, but no one to tend them.)
Today and tomorrow are two of my sisters-in-law's birthdays, so Friday we had girls' movie night - Here. Lots of cleaning and stashing boxes in closets in order to appear like I've got everything under control. More on that later, I'm sure.
And now. I'm back. Into a routine (Thank, you William, for sleeping through the night all week!!), and back to our regularly scheduled programming.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
