Ryss has been gone to Florida since Tuesday. I know that it is only Thursday but it sure feels longer. She was moved up into the High School band last year which qualified her to go on this trip to march in the Disney parade. They won't be back until Sunday afternoon. I didn't realize how boring I am until I was left alone to bore myself.

Now don't get me wrong. I am still busy as ever. Packing, reading, writing, etc., but it just feels quiet and kind of still around here. I am almost over being sick except for the lingering cough which packing is not helping (dust, dust everywhere). Yesterday was busy with Mom's Day Out but it still felt really quiet.

I did find out there is one significant difference between the Arkansas Conference and the Texas Conference. Arkansas' appointments are effective July 1st and Texas' is effective the second Sunday of June. Which left me with nearly a month without pay.

I resolved that I was not going to worry about it and let God work it out. A few hours later I got an email saying that they have moved my appointment date up to June 15th, Hallelujah!! Now I only have two weeks to worry about finances, which is one reason that I have been sitting at home in the evenings. I don't want to spend any more money than I absolutely have to, but I'm convinced that it will all work out.

I've done the "change places on faith" thing before and it's always worked out.

Our conference has June 25 as move out day and June 26 as move in day. Not much time for any turnover. They expect any repairs or clean-up to be done while the outgoing pastor is still in the house. Yeah, right, with a 4 year old and an almost 2 year old...

But I've got vacation time saved for the move...
