home sick w/ an earache; prayer request

I am home sick today with an earache. I was hoping that I would feel a little bit better to do some more packing, but I don't feel like it! Hey, I took a shower....that's a bonus.

I have been super worried because my husband leaves tomorrow for Las Vegas to visit some friends. I am just worried about the flights, etc. I know God is in control, but I just am very worried about it. I can't think of the last time one of us has flown without the other!

May God have the glory whatever happens, I'm still worried sick about it. I keep having nightmares about a plane crash. Good grief, I feel like I'm losing it! Anyhoo, someone tell me something to make me feel better.

Funny thing I said last night

This story was told to me by my husband. Remember, Cowboy is our cat.

My husband came home from work last night, and I had taped the academy awards. However, the tape ran out right before they were going to announce who won the award for best picture. I was asleep, and my husband asked me who won for best picture. I said "Cowboy." A little bit later he asked me again, and I said "Cowboy." Finally, after a little bit, he asked again, and I said "The departed." He had to check online anyway just to make sure that I wasn't delusional.

We do own the best cat in the world, but I don't think he'll be winning any academy awards....

Chaos & progress

Our garage is almost pretty enough to eat off the floor, there are boxes stacked up on tables in the garage, all the wallpaper is off in the kitchen and we are trying to take the glue off, there are cans of paint and paint materials on another table in the garage, we have a full curb of junk, I am putting out bags and boxes of usable stuff we don't need for the Vietnam Veterans association to pick up, I have packed a lot of the photos from our living room, there are scraps of wallpaper all over the kitchen and tracked into the living room, our house is full of so many liquor store boxes it looks like we need an intervention.

Harvest Brown is the new popular neutral. (710-D) Which we are going to use to paint a few rooms in our house. Check it!

When I get my hubby (hint hint) to post some photos on my blog, you won't have to use your imagination.

packing the first boxes

It's making the moving thing more real...packed up just a couple of boxes this weekend. My husband is taking a vacation day Sat Feb 24 to help me paint the house (and we might recruit a couple friends.) We've lived here since we've been married, so it's a little weird that we're finally getting ready to move out.

There seems to be so much to do, but it's been helpful to just tell myself we can only do one thing at a time.

Date w/ Realtor

Set a date with our realtor, Randy, for Wed. Feb 14, 2007. We're going to have him check out the house to see what needs to be done to get it ready to sell.

I was thinking about everything we've done to improve our duplex:
*over the hood microwave *new windows *exterior paint *sump pump *fireplace doors *some interior paint *landscaping *new kitchen faucet and repaired bathroom faucets

What is left? Floors are a wreck, roof will need replacement sometime soon, deck in back isn't so great, interior painting and wallpaper removal.

My in-laws suggested before we get into repainting and heavy remodeling to have the Realtor come over and check everything out first to see what needs to be done. Last time he came over he said we should make the front look nice, which we've done with the new windows and paint.

My husband and I were working the budget and have been talking about moving, it's stressful to think about. I am praying that God would open doors and shut doors. Sometimes, I don't know how to pray about life changes. I just barge ahead with what I think is right, and I pray for God to stop me or make it very clear if I'm taking the wrong direction. It's so hard sometimes with those gray areas that aren't laid out in Scripture. I know I'm not supposed to commit adultery, murder in my heart, or covet. However, I am not so sure on do we move now to be closer to work to save money on gas and time, or do we wait a little bit until more of our debt is paid off? Or, do we move sooner rather than later so we can put the saved gas money and travel into our debt?

I need to remind myself God is in charge
