So, 4 weeks from today we will be moving. Crazy. I feel like I'm in an insane time crunch, yet I can't do anything b/c we are trying to sell the house, so things have to look nice. We're having an open house on Sunday. After that, everything gets packed.... for the most part. I sure hope someone decides to buy the house before we move.
Yesterday Chad and I were discussing future plans. I think it's kind of surreal that we can't really plan for where we'll be past next year. Most people have a picture in their mind of where they'll be and what they'll be doing in 10 years. I have a big blank. It's unfathomable for me. I guess that's good. I'm not constantly going to be begging to move to Little Rock or some such destination. It's all in God's hands. Sometimes we feel really called to go back to the UK. Sometimes we feel that the CRC is where we should be, keeping us somewhere in N. America. Maybe we'll end up w/ both.
Even our family size depends upon where we'll be and what we'll be doing. Not that we'll change if we want kids, but God knows what will work for us and where. And still we keep moving away from friends. I feel like we have a lot of friends, just none that will be long term, have coffee together friendships. Maybe we'll have to wait until all the pastors retire and we'll all live in Raybrook together.Of course if we move around enough, and some of our friends also move, then there's a pretty good chance that we'll meet up again somewhere, right? Or at least we'll never have to pay for hotels when we go somewhere.
