Things never go as I plan. In fact, I'm thinking that I should think of my plan, plan for the opposite, and then go with that plan. I am confusing myself. Anyway, the catalyst behind my madness is that we sold our house....after 9 days on the market. Which is a total miracle. It's just that things aren't falling into place quite as smoothly as I planned, (i.e., we have nowhere to live now).
In my mind, we would find the perfect house and our house would sell at the same time, providing for a seamless move between points A & B. Not so much. We have to be out of our house May 3 and the days are flying by with warp speed. We have looked at many houses, with very little luck. I don't think we are being that picky: at least 2 bedrooms, somesort of playspace, and a garage on the main level. And some sort of backyard. And not 2 kazillion dollars. And not old as the hills. And not requiring us to live in a tent while it's remodeled. Apparently, the perfect house does not exist!
Nothing is easy.:) But, I am thankful our house sold (because keeping up the facade of perfection gets old quickly). And, I know God will provide.....just wanting to know the address of this provision.

J. K. ‘s life rules:

1. Have a Plan.
2. Have a backup plan because the first plan won’t work.
3. Have a backup plan for the backup plan because it probably won’t work either.

We’re praying for you all.
