Today was a "work" day... again. We are in the midst of beginning our packing for the big move, and there is so much to go through. On the positive side, and there are many positives, Jason has been able to just stay down in the bed for most of the past two days, and that makes us happy. It allows his wounds to get a little more healing in, and that is something that we really need to happen. Each day also brings us closer to the big move, and that is definitely a positive. It is also "forcing" us to go through all our stuff and thus organizing it better. The down side is that we didn't get over to the storage to work on reducing that down. We found out this morning that the girls would be coming over this evening (they're actually here now), and we needed to get a few more things ready for them, than we originally thought. They normally would not have come until Monday morning. The other down is that we didn't get to go to church this morning, and we really do enjoy the time there, as well as the fellowship we enjoy.
As it turned out, I ended up putting in some extra hours on the backyard because Kojak is really starting to get more comfortable here, and is acting more like a puppy - a big puppy - but a puppy none-the-less. Puppies like to play, and they like to chew on things. In his case, he seems to enjoy destroying plants, and doing his best to dig under them. Fortunately all his digging has been away from the fence, so at least that is one less thing to worry about. He has also discovered shoes, and just how great they "taste." Looks like Jason is going to be buying Linda a new pair of tennis shoes, as Kojak ripped through a pair of her shoes. He grabbed a pair of mine, but Jason caught it before he was able to do any damage. That's another thing we've been working on today, "puppy-proofing" the house as best we can - time will tell.
Otherwise, this has been a busy and productive weekend. It seems like we managed to get a great deal accomplished, and there is still a great deal more to be done. Tomorrow we have multiple appointments to get to (Jason and I), and Linda has a few errands to take care of, so we'll all be busy enough. Having the girls with us, is just an added bonus, especially for Linda, as Stacy is going to be spending most of the day with her - school is out for summer. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take car and stay positive.
