Almost too busy to blog
Between home, church, my business and helping friends, I’m busy as a bee. I’ve been upstairs cleaning out our “old” office so that I can move our current office upstairs. We are putting wood floors down in the living room, which we are now using as our office, and the dining room. Somehow the old office had turned in to our junk room. You wouldn’t believe what I am finding up there. Yesterday I found a box of banking papers from 1990 thru 1992. I will be busy with the shredder today getting rid of most of those. I found a box of Jennifer’s old stuff that she had thrown in there before she moved out several years ago; most all of that went in the trash. It really feels good to get that room cleaned out.
I’ve been helping a friend, Felicia, get her house prepared to put on the market. She has lived there for 15 years and she has collected lot’s of things. We have given away many of her things and taken many more things to the Salvation Army. Yesterday, a friend of mine, took all her office furniture and her computer. It really scares Felicia to think that she is moving into another phase of her life. She is going from a large three bedroom house into a small two bedroom assisted living center. She really doesn’t want to do this but her memory is getting to a point where she needs to. Last Tuesday, six ladies from church came over and we did some deep cleaning. We cleaned things that I am sure haven’t been cleaned in a long time. I think the house is finally ready to put on the market. Yea!
I have my grandbabies for a few days because Justin’s mom is in the hospital and not doing very good. Her kidneys are shutting down and her bowels are not working right. He and Jennifer are trying to get some work done so that he can go to Mexico and see her. Grandma to the rescue! My work for the next few days will be to take care of a 4 year old and an 8 month old. I’m just glad that I can help take a little load off of Jen and Justin.
With my calling at church, I have been busy helping others get prepared for hurricane season, which starts in about four weeks. We have ordered 5 gallon water containers and 55 gallon water barrels. I am working on the delivery of those later this afternoon. Next on the agenda will be 2,400 and 3.600 calorie food bars for our 72 hour emergency kits. Our church leaders have asked us to make sure that we have food stored for emergencies and we have been working on that. The scripture, “If ye are prepared, ye shall not fear.” comes into mind here.
Between all of this, running a business, and daily chores, life keeps going. I wonder sometimes how I manage it all. I’m grateful to God for the help he gives me and the love of my family. Where would I be without them?
Have a good weekend to all of my friends out there in blogland!
