When I realized what I'd written in my last post, I realized I'd shared more on Twitter (MarinaWrites) than I had on my blog. Oops! I apologize for the delay, the lack of posting, the missing news. I'm really sorry!!
What I'd failed to reveal - I didn't reveal - because I've been going 0 - 90 for the past few weeks. Mark was offered the job (and accepted) and gave his 3 week notice (it was meant to be a 2 week notice, but he was traveling when he received the offer).
Since then I've been painting, projecting, cleaning, packing, re-packing and living life daily. We've filled out paperwork, met with 2 realtors, and have had a dozen bankers calling at all hours of the day for a mortgage on a house we haven't even looked for (or at).
Just yesterday, our daughter and sil found out that they have found an apartment - a HUGE step in emptying the house, and redoing some of the items that need completing around the house. It's so much easier to repaint when there aren't little fingers to "help".
This week I'm keeping the 2 youngest grandkids, (one who is waking from his nap now....). Mark leaves at the end of the week, and starts his new job a week from Monday. I'm going to miss him!! Please be praying for us, our time apart, and his adapting to his new job and new responsibilities. Pray we both grow in our love for God, and trust Him to keep us close in heart. That we find time to stay connected, even though we'll both have busy schedules.
I'll update again....sooner or later....
