...have been ______. Hard, Crazy, LONG, Stressful, Frustrating, Wonderful, Sad, Happy, Hard.
As usual, I am a mess of emotions. We moved to Ringgold on the 18th. It was an INSANE night and day. Thursday the 17th the girls in our small group from church took me out to one of my favorite restaurants. Lots of really good food, drinks, dessert and fellowship. I got home around 10pm and Matt and I decided to go ahead and finish loading the UHaul, attach the car trailer to the truck, and load Matt's Jeep on the Uhaul. Needless to say, by 1am we had someone gotten the car trailer STUCK on the lip of the Uhaul ramp. Yeah.
So, we left about four hours later the next day (Friday) than we had planned and were told by the Uhaul guy that came to help that he'd never seen anything like it. He even took a picture. Well, at least we are memorable in our mistakes.
That weekend (and holiday MLK Monday) was wonderful. We got moved in, got a little settled and went and drove around Ringgold and Chattanooga, seeing what had changed the last 10 years (well, 10 for Matt, 9 for me).
Then Tuesday, the week started. Matt worked in Birmingham all last week. It was an... experience. My respect for single moms is through the roof even more than it was before. Wow.
And as of today, we closed on our house today (a week and a half after we were supposed to). We made an offer on a house here. I filled out paperwork to start one of my new jobs (for a major chain pharmacy/store) and had my computer and cell phone shipped to me for the other job I'll be working. See I'll be working two 10-hour days at the chain, and then 12-15 hours a week from home for the company I used to work for. Thankfully most of the 12-15 hours a week from home will be in the evenings and during nap time, they are super flexible about when I work.
So, it's been hard, but a good week. We are seeing God's provision and slowly becoming adapted to our new apartment. Once this work from home job starts (in two weeks), I don't know how much I will be able to blog, so I'm going to try to get a lot written.
