I haven’t been online much recently and have been dealing with some family issues that have needed my attention. The daughter’s 3 year courtship ended, the son has been dealing with his desire to find a future wife and the husband has been working double overtime for weeks now.
Needless to say, I’ve been needed to console the heart-broken daughter through sleepless nights and even longer days full of tears. But not to worry, things are slowly going back to normal and settling out.
However, I just found out today that I got accepted for a job up North and will be leaving at the beginning of May for the whole season. About 6 months I will be gone so I will not be able to keep up this journaling until I get back. I’m expecting to lose a lot of weight while I’m gone and hope my family will not die of starvation without me home to cook and clean for them every day.
I have a month left here at home and have begun preparations for the trip North. Packing and creating a list of things I will need. Making lists for the rest of the family so the animals won’t starve or make messes on the floors either. hehe Plants to be tended, etc.
I’m looking forward to the trip. I’ll have my own 2 bedroom cabin on the lake. Fishing, hiking, canoeing, boating, swimming, alone time in prayer and devotionals (almost a sabbatical!), personal rediscovery, and working full-time will be my life until some time in October when the season ends. The family will come to visit every few weeks or so and in a way they will get their vacations in while I’m working. It all has a way of working itself out somehow.
