We slept pretty well last night on the sofa bed. It is the most comfortable sofa bed we have ever slept on. When I woke up this morning, I knew my legs and back weren’t going to go anywhere, and we had a lot to do. The only thing to do would be to take Ibuprofen, which I don’t really like to do, but I did. Never would have made it through the day without it.
Around 9:00 this morning, we went over to C&C’s place to go through some books and pick up some things they already had packed.
It was going on 11:30 when we left there. Dropped things off at the house that we had brought from C&C’s house. Then headed for the apartment to have lunch. We didn’t have any lunch fixin’s at the house.
After lunch and a nap, we went out to shop - quick stop at Big Lots - didn’t find anything we were looking for. Next stop was K-Mart. Found a few little things there. Last of all, we went to WalMart where we got most of what we needed. Praise the Lord for His provision for these household items.
By then we were quite tired. Still had to fix and eat supper. The spaghetti, however, was at the other house, and the meat and other things were at the apartment. Well, we’ll go to the apartment and load up the car with other belongings, including things from the fridge and freezer. Then go over to the house and fix supper.
By the time we had finished loading up things, we were both exhausted. Considering that we would still have to unload after arriving back at the house, put away things that go in fridge and freezer, and then wait for supper to be prepared, we decided to stop at Subway and have our supper there. We are glad that we did that.
It was after 7:00 by the time we got home. Put away things in the fridge and freezer and hung up clothes that we had brought. Now it is almost 10:00. Time for bed.
“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” Revelation 4:11
March 5. It has been another long and very tiring day; but I’m thankful for a good night’s rest last night.
This morning I had to wash my hair, and it was also pancake morning. However, when we opened the box with the electric griddle we had bought the other day, we discovered one leg of the griddle was broken off. Since I had already started making the pancake dough, I finished mixing it up and then cooked just enough pancakes for today in a little non-stick skillet. Put the rest of the mix in the fridge for tomorrow.
By the time breakfast and Bible reading were done, it was time to head to Kings Mountain. Took my prayer book along with me. We were a few minutes late getting to WWNTBM office where we met with Andrew M. to do the recording for our presentation. Daddy and I had quite a time getting through it - mistakes, coughing, phone ringing, other interruptions - but finally made it to the end. Then Andrew played it back to make sure everything was okay. There are a couple other places where he will have to splice things out.
After we left there, we went to Roses and found some more household items we needed. Then to the apartment to load up more of our things. Next to WalMart for lunch at Subway and to purchase a few more household items. And last of all to K-Mart to exchange the electric griddle.
It was about 3:00 when we finally arrived home, ready for a good nap. Our landlords were here installing air-conditioner window units. They also trimmed the lower branches off the trees out back. They said the electric company will come and trim the upper branches because there are power lines running through them.
After unloading the van, we took a short nap. Sleep evaded me because of too much hip pain.
After nap, we worked in the kitchen - washed up all the storage containers and the cookeware set we had bought yesterday, plus the tableware and silicone scrapers we had bought today; washed out drawers and one cupboard; lined drawers with shelf liner; dried and put away containers, cookware, and other things
C&C came for a while and looked over the house to see what the space is like, what storage is available, etc. We also talked over their move - what large items to bring, what to put where, etc. Lord willing, they can get moved in by the time we leave for VA next weekend.
This evening, I started filing some things in the file cabinet.
Christy took home my computer this evening so she could get our e-mails in, since this house isn’t set up with internet connection yet. So wrote these journal notes in a notebook to be transferred to this computer file.
“And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation….” Revelation 5:9
