Go ahead and say it. Again?
Yes, again! And we're all very happy about it, as Dan's accepted a job: 1) that he will enjoy and that will pay well, 2) somewhere closer to a goodly number of family members, 3) very close to one family member* whom we will love seeing more often, 4) somewhere with trees and lawns 5) that has fall and winter, spring and summer, 6) has a more accessible cost of living, and most especially, 7) it's not Las Vegas!
Where are we going this time, you ask? This time around, and hopefully for a longer period of time, we'll be testing out the climes in...
certainly a good day to begin any enterprise! But that doesn't leave us much time to make the whole move happen. We only have 19 days to go, a whole house to pack and clean, a new rental to find, and 1,284.7 miles to drive two trucks, pulling two car dollies transporting 8 people (not counting the misc. Big Kids who'll come to help), two cats, and a little dog.
(Aren't you glad this isn't you?)
So, we're going to be a little busy. It's possible I'll get the time to post some random pictures and updates. I'll try, anyhow, for the benefit of family members who are scratching their heads in wonder....
That same wonder which begets the question -- because I'm sure it's hanging out there -- so I'll just answer it: No, we're not crazy. We don't have some obsessive form of wanderlust. And we're not being kicked out of every town we try living in. We're just trying to do God's will, one step at a time. And His will for us seems rather, uh...
And we'll be fine. We're getting really pretty darn good at this moving thing.
But, please, if you think of it, we'd appreciate any prayers offered for the safety of our journeys!
And, we'll try to get our new address out in time for Christmas cards!
* That would be Frater Philip -- and of course all of his Seminarian and priestly brethren of whom we are rather fond.
