I'm rejoicing today in an answered prayer. Actually, I have to admit that it's an answered gripe. You see, I am not normally the type of person who misplaces things or breaks things. I like to think that I'm more responsible than that (heehee!). But this summer I have had a definite issue with sunglasses. I had a pair that I loved; I lost them. I had a pair that were specifically made for my prescription glasses; I lost them. I had another pair that I had bought at a gas station out of sheer desperation & I kind of broke them. Grrrr...so in the back of my head for the last few weeks I've been kinda gripey about it. And I refused to buy another pair b/c I just didn't trust myself with a new pair. But God is good, you know. Yesterday I was digging through my car because I had lost my Nalgene (see, losing stuff left & right!). In the process of looking for the Nalgene I found the two lost pairs! Yee haw!
Another cause for rejoicing today is that Mike & his brother Stew are closing on their house today. They have owned a home (a fabulous historical home) for about 9 years & it's been on the market for a little over a year. Stew has been commuting to Indy for work for at least 10 years & he's ready to be done with that. The time spent on the road together with the increase in gas prices has made it difficult for him to justify living here. So today they sign the papers & the packing/down-sizing & yard-saling/moving fun begins!
