Hello again. I just wanted to let you know that John still has a job! We are so thankful.
I survived my final two Bible Studies. I was not as emotional as the first time, but still cried quite a bit. By the end, my nose was beet red and raw and I was exhausted for a whole day and a half. But I would have to say that it was worth it. I think perhaps it was good for me to have some good hard cries. But more importantly, it sounds like some people were encouraged by hearing of the things God has taught me in my life, through the struggles I've had.
I don't have much else to add. I mainly wanted to check in and let you know that we are alive and well. John is looking forward to having four days off, and Ethan and I are looking forward to spending some good time with him. We've been going in separate directions for over three weeks now. Once we settle in and have some down time, I have a new project. I am planning to rearrange the whole house. Yes, I know that I am crazy. We have clearly established that already. But having lived in this house for a while, we have discovered that we could make it work a little better for us if we swap some rooms around. The only rooms that will get by unscathed will be the kitchen and bathroom. This is the short version: We will put our bed in what is now Ethan's room. We will make what is now our bedroom into the living room/dining room/office. Ethan will get to have what is now our living room/dining room for his bedroom. And what is now John's little office, will become a storage closet. So there you have it. Total chaos and upheaval. And eventual beauty and harmony. I am so excited!
