Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

friday: it's been a week.

we've officially lived in san angelo for a week. it feels like longer. i was cleaning the house today, and i told landon that i did when i was talking to him on the phone. he said, "isn't it pretty clean?"

you'd think, wouldn't you?

but no. we moved dust. and we had a lot to move, believe me. plus just the trucking in and out of a lot of people and boxes and the like makes for lots of dirt and tape particles and stuff.

i'm pretty pleased with my living room, guest bathroom and kitchen right now. ellie's room is a work in progress, but it isn't driving me too nuts. that's mostly thanks to kylah's help the first night we were here. (speaking of kj, say a prayer for her. she's really not feeling well tonight.) not much has been done in there since then. but the office and our bedroom are terrible. the main issue is we have the stuff but we have no stuff receptacles. we have clothes; we have no dresser. we have a mattress and box springs; we have no bed frame. we have files and craft things and a printer; we have no desk. in order to obtain said stuff receptacles, i need money.

and so the stuff sits...

i really am thankful for my house. it's 150 percent better than apartment living. even if i don't get another thing to add to it, it's wonderfulness.

OK. i think it's time to go. ellie is wiping soggy pizza crust on my laptop, and she really needs to go to bed.

You're so together already!
I loved all your great dishes at the shower! It was so chaotic that I don't remember if I told you.
Well, I think there are only good things ahead for you guys - except for the allergies.
Thanks for jumping right in and doing the shower with us!
