Setbacks again

I’ve been sick, so I haven’t posted. The good thing is that I’ll have the whole weekend to reconsider and reorganize things here. The bad thing is that there’s so much to do on the old house, I might not get much packing done.

Oddly, when I packed the first boxes I looked around and couldn’t think of what else might be really necessary. But I forgot to pack anything in the kitchen, or any of the clothes I’ve been wearing. Those aren’t the majority of what needs to move. I’m not sure what else to take, and what to leave. I’ll figure it out as I go, I’m sure. For now, sleep sounds like a very good idea.

One thing I know: I don’t want to pay to store anything I own. I could buy new of everything I own-minus about 10 items-or do without them for much less than the cost of storage for just three months.


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!
