almost everything has been done at the new apartment (why is it so hard for me to admit we're moving into an apartment - it's the top 2 floors of a huge home - but it's not all our's, and somehow it feels a bit like going backwards... i know it's exactly where we need to be right now - it's affordable, and buying here until we know if we're staying would be dumb - but 'renting' just seems so transient somehow... it's not, but i have had such trouble admitting it... weird.)
i'm on my second batch of antibiotics for the bronchitis and would really like it to clear up SOON! trying to move in the middle of this is exhausting - but i'm getting tons done and my sleepless times are spent packing boxes - so i guess it's the way it's supposed to be...
i'm feeling much less fragile lately - which is a great thing. i don't know if it was admitting it here, going to the meeting, or just this massive deadline that has foreshadowed everything else in my life - but i'm feeling much stronger emotionally - thanks so much for your prayers and encouragement!
found out that the landlords will be here a whole week earlier - and i might go and pick them up at the airport - i figure it will be a good time for them to get to know me, and me to be able to show my gratitude to them for their generosity.
well, off to finish the last touches at the apartment today and to start to unpack my kitchen. (moving tip - if you are moving locally open topped boxes and laundry baskets work great if you have access to your new home early - that way things can be unpacked quickly and put in place so that your new place isn't filled with stacked up boxes when you arrive, that is if you can't get access to shopping carts! HA!)
