Tender mercies...

We are in high-stress mode at our house.  With moving this weekend and not having a specific home to move to yet, things are a little crazy. 

  I just had to steal a moment away and share some of the tender mercies of the Lord I've experienced recently:

* Wonderful family in San Jose to stay with until our home is ready.

* No rain the entire three hours I worked on the yard on Monday, yet it has rained nonstop since then.

* Discovering two extra rolls of packaging tape in the office supplies/school supplies box.

* Happy, easy-going toddler who is content to play by my side as I pack.

* Dear friends always there for me.

* The children finding Halloween costumes on their own and without spending a dime.

* Discovering that a school district, that I wanted to move in to, cut all their transportation BEFORE moving in to its boundaries.

* Getting a sound sleep last night.

* Easy-prep meals and plenty of food.

* Music.

Ho hum....

Waiting and waiting and waiting....

Our home is up on the rental market and it's exciting to have potential renters look at our house.  The kids are even excited about it and are doing a fabulous job of keeping the house clean.  Hope someone bites soon.

While I'm waiting I have plenty to keep me busy: packing, packing, and packing! 

I actually like packing--it's like tetris (or 3-D tris) where I get to fit everything in snugly with no gaps.

As for unpacking, one of my sister-in-laws loves it and compares it to unwrapping presents.  I wish I felt like that, but I don't.  So, you know I'll be having a blast with unpacking in a few weeks.

Until then, please feel free to take my little survey, to the right, if you'd like.  :)
