Wanna know why I’ve been too tired to blog lately? Read this. There are a few nasty words. If you hate such language, ignore it.
Jon went to AAA on Tuesday and got the guidebooks for Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, the Dakotas, Iowa and Nebraska. (The last 5 states are included in one guidebook.) He also got a map of Minnesota and we’re going to get some more maps tomorrow so we can start sort of planning the move out. No… we don’t know exactly where we’re going to move yet (we still have to hear from the synod and fly up and interview with them); but it doesn’t hurt to start planning a route to get to the state. We know that it will be somewhere in western Minnesota from St. Cloud southward and it will be one of these congregations, but that’s pretty much the extent of our knowledge — i.e. no exact place. We’re thinking of breaking the move up into two days instead of driving for 12 hours. Any thoughts on whether this is a good idea or not?
The Claytor Dinner/Auction is on Saturday night to raise money to help an older couple in our congregation. I’m the computer geek for the function which means that I have to make the auction sheets and thank you posters and the instruction papers. Thankfully, we’ll have counters who can tally money for these things. I will be a happy Jen when all of this is OVER and I can go back to my strange and bizarre life. I have a ton of data entry to do tonight as well as baking up all the cookie dough in the freezer and replenishing it as well.
