"It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to." Bilbo Baggins (J.R.R. Tolkien)
So, Friday I move to Texas.
I have said the majority of my goodbyes, and am mostly packed.
I have to tell you... Space Bags rock for packing large amounts of clothing.
We will set out early Friday morning,and will spend Friday night in a hotel.
Saturday we will push on until we are in Liberty/Moss Hill Texas.
In Liberty there is a Church that we will all be going to (every Sunday etc).
This Church (Touched by Grace Ministries), aside from normal services also holds Pastoral retreats on it's 7 acre piece of land in the woods north of Moss Hill. They have cabins and all sorts of facilities as these retreats are weekend long.
Our original plan was to spend Saturday night in one of there cabins, which they are loaning to us freely (Very Kind of them, attend service Sunday morning, then go south about an hour to Dayton, Texas where our apartment will be.
Unfortunately plans change.
Our apartment application had been denied, and with Chris's Fiancé's (Kiki's) work schedule, and all the work to be done before the wedding, we won't even be able to turn in any applications for the remainder of this week. (wedding is the 27th)
So, we will be staying in the cabin in Liberty until we are able to secure an apartment.
This should go quickly.
The reason getting an apartment has been so difficult is that Kiki has been the sole person able to do the apartment hunting. She is the only one to know there area, and since we aren't down there we can't look at the places, we can't go turn in applications etc etc. Once we are down there I am sure things will go much smoother.
(We are welcome in the cabin as long as we need it, so long as we are actively looking for a place. not a problem)
