February 29. The last day of February. What a beautiful, warm, sunny day the Lord gave us! About mid-morning, Daddy and I went out to the bank to make a deposit. Then to the police station to try to get a crime report on the area we’re moving into. The one in charge was busy in a meeting, however, so we couldn’t get to see him. Daddy had called him earlier and left a message too. Both Daddy and Christy did see on a website that it is a low crime area, however. (We never did hear back from the police department and later found out that this is not a low crime area. But we believe this is where God has put us and that He has a ministry for us here.)
After that, we went on to the house. The landlady came down to take care of the plumber who put hookups in for the washing machine. She brought the lease with her and we signed that. Then we had to go back to the bank to get a cashier’s check to pay for the first month’s rent and the security deposit. Returned to the landlady with the check, and she gave us a copy of the lease, a receipt, and the keys.
From there, we went to Big Lots and got a few small items needed for the house. Then back to the apartment for lunch and a nap. After nap, we loaded up some things in the car and then went to Burkes where we got an over-the-door rack, a blinds cleaner, and thank you notes. Made a quick run into Dollar Tree to pick up some dish soap, a dish towel, and dish cloths. Then on to the new house.
While Daddy was bringing things inside, I was taking pictures of the house - inside and out. After that, I cleaned the counter tops and some shelves, and washed the dishes.
The girls arrived shortly before we were done working. Then we all came over here to the apartment. It was after 5:00 by then. Cooked up some chicken for all of us for supper, and used some leftover spaghetti to make “macaroni” and cheese for Daddy and me. Our vegetables are all gone so I had an extra helping of mac ‘n’ cheese.
