I am taking a quick lunch break from packing/cleaning/stressing-out-about the house. We have a potential renter coming to look at it on Saturday so I’ve been trying to get it show-able all week.
Getting the house ready this week has been really weird for me because I’m starting to realize how attached I’ve gotten to this place. We’ve lived in this house for six years (as of this summer), which is almost three times as long as I’ve ever lived in one house in my life. Also, you don’t realize when you’re an army brat how awesome the day the packers come really is. When I was living at home my parents would just tell us to put aside anything we wanted to keep with us, and the packers would come and throw everything in boxes and on the truck. I’ve only moved four times since leaving home at 17 (st.louis to jville to acworth to here), but until now I’ve never had so much to pack! You really accumulate a lot of stuff staying in the same place for six years. (We had three yardsales last year and still! So much stuff!)
So, yea, someone is coming to see the house this Saturday. If you want to pray about that, please, we’d appreciate it!
In other news: we are sending our first round of payments and pre-departure materials to WorldTeach next week! Yay!
