I hope to keep you all posted as we make this transition to Maryville, MO. Here is what has happened in the last few days.
On Tuesday, I notified our leadership team that I would be leaving.
On Sunday morning, I informed the church. Folks seemed to be taking it well enough, considering most were blindsided by the news. People have been supportive. Some are upset at me and some are downright mad. I think with time, people will understand.
This week we have been cleaning and repairing our house. Tonight has been the most productive we have had; you can’t tell, but I am righting this at 1:15am. Just now getting to bed. This evening alone we:
- grouted the shower
- caulked the shower
- touched up paint all over the interior of the house
- put some Old English on all the woodwork
Keri has been awesome these last few weeks. She has cleaned/packed/moved something (and a lot of days, multiple somethings) everyday for the last few weeks. And she still manages to take care of the kids and fix something to eat each night. She is amazing.
Tomorrow’s big project is to clean all the carpets. And then, it’s just a few more small things and we are good to go. We have an appointment with our REALTOR on Friday afternoon, so that is the deadline.
I’m signing off for some sleep.
