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.
