"...to the Eastside, to that de-luxe apartment in the skyyyyy!"
I'm not sure why there's been such a dearth of blogging here lately. Perhaps our minds have been occupied with other things, namely the fact that we are officially moving in three weeks! I still look around me and wonder how in the world we are going to pack all this stuff up in the next 20 days...
In case you missed our earlier announcement, we are moving to a new apartment complex to be a CARES Team again! We are so encouraged by the thought of being in ministry again, and doubly so by the fact that our good friend Kitti will be our Area Director with Apartment Life.
We finally confirmed our new address and are looking forward to the extra space a 3 bedroom will provide. Jacob will finally have his own room and won't have to share sleeping quarters with a computer. I am looking forward to having space to organize and store crafts and office supplies -- the third bedroom actually has TWO closets! Heaven! Not to mention the sidewalk outside our door that goes directly down to a paved jogging trail that circles a lake! With real, live ducks! (There is a small body of water behind our current apartment, but is more swamp-like than pond-like and has become a stagnant dumping ground for trash and runoff debris.) Ah, suburban nature! How I've missed you!
All this talk of moving has made me a bit nostalgic, actually. Last night we bid farewell to some friends who are going to be living in Charlotte for the summer by feasting at the best little Chinese place in Atlanta. And though that couple will be coming back in the fall, some of our other longtime friends are moving to Knoxville. They have a daughter only a few months older than Jacob, and I suppose I'm just sad because we won't get to see her grow up like we have been all year, especially since the ironic part is that we are actually moving to a place very close to where they live now! But, we know they are sure to come visit, at least for a Georgia Tech football game or two, perhaps.
Due to the move, I am frantically trying to get rid of all the items we don't need anymore, and that includes a large box of CD's. So, seriously, check out our eBay auction over the course of the next week. I promise you won't be disappointed.
