Monday through Friday was filled with packing. If you think moving is stressful, try moving while having to figure out exactly what goes into long-term storage, short-term storage, give-away or loans and then keep all those boxes separate and organized. I am quite the organizer, but even my super-powers were challenged. A good friend helped me get through the insanity that is kitchen packing.
On Friday Kevin made an offer on the Fiver of our dreams and the dealer accepted.
On Saturday a bunch of burly and helpful men came over to help us load the U-Haul and consume donuts and banana bread. Said truck then went to Orlando where Kevin and his dad and another friend helped unload it.
On Sunday we test drove and made a deposit on a 2009 Chevy Silverado (name: Jose).
About 18 other things have happened, big and small but I will update you on the rest later. This past week has had the potential to be one of the most stressful of my life yet I feel strangely calm through it all. The hugs, support and thousands of encouraging words from friends and family make all the differenceI am praising God for that peace and aiming to practice Christ's presence through all the remaining busyness.
