Wow!! Once again God is providing above and beyond what I need. We had one more big debt that I felt obligated to pay (not counting medical bills, but we still don’t know what is going on there), and the Lord just sent me a check that covered it all, with some left over. That was one that He provided before we even had a clue that it would be needed.
So, what started off as a somewhat depressing day has improved greatly. I spent a large portion of the day packing up stuff to take to PA with me. Alas, my days of high speed internet are about over. I am seriously considering a few options in PA, but most are quite expensive. I just don’t know if I’ll be able to handle dial-up anymore, though. Dan has spoiled me tremendously in that area.
I thought, too, the other day, “Thank you ever so much, Lord, for having Dan get this laptop.” It truly has been a blessing in disguise. We often joked that the computer was Dan’s other wife. I was the round wife and the computer was the square wife. “Which wife are you going to spend time with tonight?” I might ask. Or we would comment on just how round I really was here lately . . and how it seemed like I was always round (pregnant) . . or maybe just complain about what a square the square wife was. . . we always had jokes flying around like that. Sometimes I would just be blunt (since he didn’t take hints very well), and say something like “the Round wife wants some attention! She’s getting jealous of that square one again! ” Needless to say the computer and I have had somewhat of a love/hate relationship (sound familiar Wayne?), and to find myself so . . dependant on it at this point in time seems a little odd to me. But then again, maybe it just makes me feel a bit closer to Dan somehow.
My aunt Jennifer (don’t be deceived . . she’s only a couple of months older than I am) arrived this evening. I hope she gets some sleep because tomorrow (morning I hope), we plan to set off for PA. And speaking of sleep. . . I think I need to get some too. It is at least a 12 hour trip with kids and I’m going to need my rest. Looks like we might get some sleet and ice in the morning and I would like to get passed all that as soon as possible.
