I never thought I would be renting again, but I am. The lease is signed as of today and the car is packed with the first load of stuff to go to the new house.

Still, this is a transition house for me. Rent is reasonable, and the house is clean and well maintained, if old. There are no appliances–I suppose things have changed in the last 9 years; I never ran into that when I rented before!–but I won’t be buying large ones. I will probably go to Walmart within the next week and get a two burner countertop “hot plate” style burner system. I hope to get a dorm sized fridge. I’ve wondered if I could do with fewer kitchen appliances. At this point, I won’t be out much if I decided I can’t do without them. It should be an interesting experiment. The good thing about buying small alternatives to appliances is that it helps me remember that this is not a permanent situation. And besides, if I move again, I won’t have much invested in things I can’t take with me.

I may buy an RV to work on in my spare time. I’m not sure yet. It would sure be nice to throw everything I own into one, rather than having to worry about relocation again someday.


About thrugracealone

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? Baptism!
