Journal Entry #13

Out My Window: The calm before the storm. Most of our snow is gone except the piles along the road and the biggest drifts, but we are under a winter storm warning once again. Yesterday it was 6 to 12 inches possible. Today they upped it to 8 to 14. Spring is a 3 steps forward, 2 steps back dance in Minnesota.

Moving On: Progress, finally! Our house still isn't sold but Mr. Bee with the help of a real estate agent who really, really made an effort, has found an Arizona home for us. Not just a rental, but a lease to own house. Woo hoo! We won't have to move again right away. It has 5 bedrooms, a 3 car garage, it is in a quiet neighborhood and close to good schools. It does need some TLC, but that is okay, I like the layout and think we can make work. Packing has started and we can move in as early as May 1st. Lucy and Charlie have already given their 2-weeks notices at their jobs. Time for me to do the same.

Reading: Finished O, Pioneers! An excellent book. Interesting how different the view of adultery was in the early 1900s. Today we would never think that Emil and Maria got what they deserved. Now I'm reading To Heaven and Back by Dr. Mary Neal. My first e-book check out from the library. I've wanted to read this for quite some time after seeing Dr. Neal on a talk show.

Apocrypha: Finished Greek Esther. I recall reading a blog post once praising Esther as a model for submissive wives. You would NOT think that if you read Greek Esther. Onward to Wisdom - a long, long book of proverbs.
