I’ve lived in Topeka, KS for 5 months.
No one else really remembers but I do. And I’m excited that I’ve made it this long. I’ve occasionally had second thoughts but not for very long. Why? Because I know that this is where I am supposed to be. I know that this is where the Lord led me when I prayed about moving. I trust in Him even when it isn’t easy.
Of course I miss my family but I’m thankful that they’re just a phone call away. I know it makes it easier on my mom when she hears that I’m doing ok and I know she appreciates me calling everyday. Even though I’ve moved away, I honestly think that I’ve grown closer to my siblings through the move and for that I’m thankful.
Now I just need to plan a trip back to Georgia, but who knows when that will be. 🙂
Sorry for no updates. I’ve been trying to get into a routine here and there’s not much excitement in that.
I got to spend Christmas Eve day with the Hawkinsons and another friend and then that evening I went to another families house and we played games till 10.Christmas Day came and went. It was hard. I’m thankful for a church family that swallows me up when I need it. I went to three different houses, spending several hours at each, and I’m so grateful for them. I got the Monday after off so I whiled the morning away and then got out with one of the girls from church for the afternoon. I really wanted Chinese for dinner but they were closed
New Year’s Eve I did errands and then went to a party for the evening. I got pooped on and that was great fun, NOT 🙂 And then New Year’s Day I managed to catch the lovely bug that’s been floating around the town for several weeks. I really thought I had managed to duck this one. I had the following Monday off again and just laid around trying to feel better before work the next day.
I’m excited to realize that I’ve lived here for 4 months! It seems strange not to be involved in the camp life anymore, but I’m happy here and I’m glad to be where I am right now.
And mom? I’m smiling again. 🙂 I love you
So I’m excited to announce that I have found a place to live!! I move in the first weekend in December. It’s a great MIL suite that is furnished, which is perfect! It is about 10 minutes from the Chapel and about 20 minutes from work. I’ve got a large bedroom and bathroom, a kitchenette and living area. I’m very excited to decorate and organize my new place.
I’ve just gone thrift store shopping so I’ll do a post on that in a few days.
