Spent most of the last week working on packing up the house. We're simplifying and purging as we pack. We've probably gotten rid of 50% of the stuff we've gone through (Goodwill either loves us or hates us with as much as we've donated). We want to go through our storage room probably next week & purge some more. We can't pack everything up right now, but we're packing up as much as we can so that when we get done with school in August, we won't have much left to pack up in the week before we move.
Russ and I are headed to Lubbock tomorrow afternoon to find a place to live. Pray that we'll find something in our price range quickly as we have to be home on Tuesday.
We're staying at my sister & brother-in-law's house when we visit Lubbock tomorrow. I'm so excited to see my niece Lola. It's been 2 months since I've seen her. She's saying Mama and standing on her own now. Can't wait to see her!
Russ is having some issues at work. Pray that he will be given the hours he's supposed to be given for the next 2.5 months. We just need to hold on until we move. Pray also that the 2 job leads he has for Lubbock will pan out. My job in Lubbock is secure, but we'll need some income from Russ to in order to make ends meet.
I finally got in my Mother's Day present late this week. They are Toms Shoes in pink big dots. I'm in love with them! I might have to look at getting another pair as they can be dressed up or dressed down and they provide more support than my beloved flip-flops.
Thanks for your prayers and support friends. Have a blessed week!
