Ok, I’ve got like literally 5 minutes to do a three week recap. Sorry, I haven’t written in a while. We’re living at Grams’ house, and she still has dial-up (plus many random virus threats and pop-ups that are really a pain when you’re trying to be online). Basically, I just don’t have time to deal with her computer. So when we get real internet, you’ll hear from me more.
Until then, here’s the scoop:
My job is going well. I’m not as stupid as I usually feel. Thank the Lord for that. We’re eagerly awaiting my first real paycheck so that we can pay our bills and eat. 🙂 Slight exaggeration as we are eating, but it’s food that Grams has had in her fridge/freezer for who knows how long. It’s not my thing really. I’m very grateful though. I’m looking forward to cooking again. But I’m kind of glad that I haven’t had to cook as I haven’t had the energy.
Mark got his driver’s license – can we all give a woo-hoo for that?! He’s driving around like a pro. My car got fixed up and is roadworthy, and it’s so nice to have it! Even at almost 10 years old, it’s still a cute little car. I don’t get to drive it much, but Mark enjoys it.
Mom and Dad are moving. Long, long story, and we still need the mountain house to sell. But they got their new house, which is a praise report. They’re working hard this weekend to get moved in. One benefit of working is that I don’t have to do the heavy labor of moving . . . just kidding. Kind of.
Mark and I got two cleaning jobs, which is a mixed blessing. It means that I’m working a ton, but we may actually get to save for a house and a baby. That makes it worthwhile.
Our church just had its annual missions conference, and God did another number on my heart. I’m just ready to explode with all that God is putting in me. I’m excited to see where it goes. Excited to see how I’ll get the time to do it too. 😉
The greencard paperwork will be sent to the immigration office this weekend. Please agree with us that we will get favor, that it will only take 3 months to get approved, and that Mark will get into a job that he loves!!!
Oh, and lastly, I’m glad to be home. It has taken me a while to adjust. It’s been hard, but I love my family, I love my friends, and I forgot how much I missed Colorado and our dogs. I love England, but my heart is home for now. So I’m going to enjoy this time here. 🙂
