Soooo…. Jacob got a job today. He starts tomorrow. That’s good. BUT last night was his last night under our roof. He will be back tomorrow evening to get all of his things and move into his new place with his friend. My heart is broken. I can’t believe it. I mean, I knew it was coming… But that’s my head, not my heart. It’s realllllly going to hit hard tomorrow when he comes to pack up.
We now have appointments with 4 different moving companies. They will be coming out to give us estimates on moving us. Did you know that some of them offer CLEANING services???? Oh, yeah, I am ALLLLLLLL over THAT!!! LOL
We will be sending in the deposit for our house on Friday. Here are a couple of pics. I think these were taken a long time ago because I am almost certain one of those walls was painted red….
This room will be the sewing room/homeschooling room/library. The Hubby THINKS it will be his office… Umm… I don’t THINK so! He can have the garage!!! LOL I am SUPER excited to have a room for all of that!! I wonder if I can fit all the bookshelves in there… Probably not….. LOL
One of the three bathrooms. I believe this is the one off the kitchen. It only has a shower, not a tub.
Another of the bathrooms.
The dining room.
There are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The master bedroom has 2 walk-in closets!!! Yes! 2!!!
The girls will be still be sharing a room. Cailey wouldn’t be able to do without Deanna. Joshua will still have a room of his own. Colin will still be sleeping in our bed BUT the 4th bedroom will be a playroom!!!! No more toys all over my room!!! WOOO HOOOO!!! No more stepping on Legos in the middle of the night!!! YIPPEEEE!!!
There’s also a large laundry room. That will be nice. We have a tiny one right now. There’s a cat door leading from the laundry room to the garage.
It has a gas stove, which I have never used before. I am a little anxious about that. I remember having one when I was little and my mom would tell me over and over to stay away from it because it would blow up. LOL Yeah, I’m a tiny bit anxious…..
The house has a nice foyer and the sewing room/homeschooling room/library opens off of it. There is also a door that lead from it to the living room.
I love that it has the vaulted ceilings and TONS of windows!! There are 3 different sets of french doors!! I might need some more curtains. LOL
There’s a brick floor in the dining room and a stone floor in the kitchen. Pretty cool.
Tonight for supper we had a turkey! LOL We are trying to use up everything in the deep freezer.
Just over 2 wks and we will be Georgia bound. Gosh, I hope our old van will make it! Good thing that we have friends and relatives on the route down!
Well, the tooth is still acting up but is is somewhat better. I’ll take what I can get!! I have still been sketching like crazy! I have filled up almost 2 whole sketch books! I’ll have enough stuff for at least 5 collections before this tooth is all better! LOL If I didn’t sketch like crap I would show you a few…. I have soooo many more projects floating around in my head!! I want to go to Goodwill and find some sweaters to work with. I would like to make Cailey a few sweater dresses. She has one sweater that I LOOOOVE. Unfortunately she has outgrown it. We called it the macaroni and cheese sweater. LOL It looks sooo much like mac and cheese!! I am going to try turning it into a skirt when I get the chance.
I have been looking online at churches in the new area. I think I found the one we will try first. They have youth meetings twice a week and children’s groups twice a week. That would certainly help the kids make friends quickly!
There’s a sewing group that meets once a week at the library. I am really looking forward to that!!!
Anyway….. I need some cheering up! So, here come the funny pictures and uplifting sayings!
I am putting all my trust in the Lord. He will see Jacob through this. He will see me through this. He will see our family through this move. I will rely on Him fully.
