January 5, 2011

Just a quick update tonight, as things went better today than they have for the past several. Part of the reason is that we finally are getting some things set up and coordinated for helping to take care of the girls, and some of the other chores around the house.

Jason took a shower today, and afterward he (drum roll please) shaved, including his mustache. When I saw him, he looked so much more refreshed, and my first thought was that he looked like a Marine who needs a hair cut (he and I have been trying to find the time to get a hair cut for several days now). We were able to take care of some of the chores/errands that we've been wanting to do, with a big one being the change out of the loaner vehicle for the next vehicle. The van we have now is almost identical to the one we previously had so the learning curve was almost null. Its even the same color - white (which means it will also get dirty just as fast). Also we made a new friend today, Bob S., who helped us in many ways today. He came over to help in one way, and it ended up taking up almost the entire day for him. He didn't complain and even bought us lunch. I didn't ask him if it was okay to write about this so you'll just have to accept the vague description, for now.

Also a good bit of news came in late in the day, that the possessions from North Carolina are supposed to be here tomorrow. This is going to help in multiple ways, and make life a little more stable for everyone. Then finally a delivery came, via UPS, from George B. Our car seats are now here and we don't need to keep swapping seats back and forth from one vehicle to another. Actually, I was getting moderately fast making the change, though it was getting old.

Tomorrow should be a little easier as there aren't too many appointments to keep up with. This should allow us to catch up on a few things. Thank you all for all your continued prayers and support, as George B. wrote to me... we're supposed to look our for each other (Romans 3:38-39).

  1. Whoo Hooo Happy New Year! Things are looking up my friends! Let us know how the new chair and seat cushion work when those arrive. Glad to hear of the help with the girls too! I bet Jason will look like a VERY handsome Marine with the new hair cut, although, I thought he looked pretty darn handsome before (did I say that?) Happy a new friend is lending a hand, we're all brothers and sisters is God's eyes.

    Keep us posted,

  2. Glad some things are working out!
    Stopping by to let you know I'm still here praying!
    Psalms 59:16-17 But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble. Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy.
