Hey, Friends! How are you? Happy three day weekend!
So this is going to be an interesting week for me. I'm moving on Friday!
I haven't met my support goal yet, but I am seeing God provide in some cool ways--like a temporary place to live! A girl at AIM is letting me stay with her until I meet my support goal. How cool is that? She rents a basement apartment from a family. The location isn't convenient--about half an hour from the office--but it gets me up there, which is the most important thing of all. I'm excited and anxious, with a mind racing full of lists of things to do. It's easy to get stressed out but I'm trying to make wise decisions and focus on what I value most right now. Extra projects can wait. Even writing can wait. Right now I need to pack and cuddle with my poodle.
The apartment is actually fully furnished and my future roommate has lived there for a while. So my lack of stuff isn't an issue--everything from plates to a bed and dresser are provided. Now I have to sift through everything I've collected over the past few months for my new apartment and see what I can actually take. Until I get my own place, I'll leave a lot of stuff at my parents' house. Since I adapt to big changes slowly, this is actually the best possible way I can do it. Now I just have to go through it all. Right now that seems more monumental than just packing it all up at once!
Anywho, if I seem different this week--noticeably absent from blogs (I'll still come on mine throughout the day and will try to read y'all's, but I might not comment this week) or a bit emotional, that's why. I get like this whenever a big change comes. As soon as I make the transition, it's better. It's just the building up that kills me. I plan to be back as "normal" on Monday.
This is a big week for me--moving, reaching 100 followers (woohoo and thank you everyone!), starting my job full time, and my birthday next Monday! So much to take in! See you then--and hopefully around the blog world this week as well. Thanks, Friends, for understanding and being there. Thanks for your prayers, support, and encouragement!
As thankful as I am for this place to live, I still need help with support. If you've been praying about it and would like to contribute, please go to this post or click here on the AIM site. Thank you so much!
