Taking Posession

Posted: July 29, 2010 in Family, Life

We are in Holdrege, our new town.  Last night Jenn, John, Amie and I did a final walk-through of the house while Maggie and Abbie went off to the fair with the church’s Children’s Coordinator and her grand-daughter.

Jenn likes the house.  (I had a nightmare the other night that after the walkthrough she broke down crying saying she hated it.)

We sign final paperwork today and take the keys.

I am excited and apprehensive and… I don’t quite know how I feel.  I guess overwhelmed is the best description.


Moving Update

I’ve made it safe to Wendover, UT.  Originally Jenn was going to drive the U-Haul while I took the kids in the van.  The idea here was to give her a break.  Somehow I’ve ended up the primary truck driver and she’s got the kids again.  Whatever.

There were some pretty strong winds coming across eastern Nevada, but nothing scary.  The oil change light on the U-Haul came on right about lunch.  I stopped, checked the oil, added a quart, and called U-Haul about this.  They said it shouldn’t be a problem.  Just tell the drop-off point it needs an oil change.  Gosh I sure hope they’re right.

God has been very good to us through all this.  More on that later.

I’m moving.  Moving away from the Land of Fruits and Nuts (e.g. California) to the Corn Husker state.  We’ve loaded up the truck and are en-route to Holdrege, Nebraska.

Back Blog Back

It has been a few weeks since my last post….

That seems to be a rather common beginning for bloggers like myself who tend to take unannounced sabbaticals from posting.  I always feel an intro like this is in order after I return from one of these blog vacations.  Just jumping back in seems wrong.  It’s not as if people can’t look at the dates and see that it’s been a while since my last post.  So why do I feel some obsessive compulsion to announce the fact?

So I’m blogging again.  There, I said it… twice.

Arizona is taking flack from the Federal Government for attempting to curtail illegal immigration, drug and human trafficking and violence against U.S. Citizens by illegals and traffickers.

A comic book artist from Canada is detained, interrogated and deported by U.S. officials. Anyone else see the logical inconsistencies here?
