We Cried Uncle

I begged for mercy - or whined pitifully and continuously is more like it.

Mike tore out the room in the garage.

I moved stuff from the boys room to the center of their room.....and after spending the hours to do ONE room, seeing the mess and resenting the fact that we are PAYING for painters to SAVE us work.....and without them I would NOT have to remove everything from closets, walls etc and move it.....

Well, I asked Mike to come see. It is apparent our packers will hate us if we do this throughout the house. AND instead of focusing on graduation and packers I spent the whole day getting ready for a painter......which would take no time at all if he waited until the packers moved our things out.

Mike called him and told him that we were paying him to SAVE us work and this was simply adding stress and work to our lives. He agreed that he'll show up NEXT week.

We've moved (or are moving) to the lake.....the base fam camp. I hear mixed stories about wifi...so don't be alarmed if you can't reach us.

This week is INCREDIBLY busy.....Bre flies in tomorrow, MNO tomorrow, PWOC installation and farewell Tuesday, hair and something else on Wed, Thurs packers, Fri packers, graduation rehearsal, Krista flies in, Saturday is graduation, Sunday is our farewell at the chapel and family picture..... SO....I'm taking photos.....when I have a connection I'll upload...if you need to reach us...cell phone will work. Feel free to email and leave messages on the home machine - we'll check it daily. I still have lots of work to do at our house.

Choosing Joy!

Praise God for small things that make a big difference! (And for Mike being willing to take charge and get things arranged!) What a week you have before you, DeEtta. Praying for all to go as smoothly as possible.

Oh.my.gosh! I'm stressed for you! Talk about some big time life changes going on. I've moved many times but never out of state & THAT makes me stressed. I can only imagine. Praying!!!

LOL living in the camper without being able to play would be confusing for the youngers.
