Life is as follows: I took on a second job. My Husband turned thirty. OH, and I may be in a subtle power struggle with my Mother-in-law. (I am not sure yet, I'll keep you posted.)

I watched Howl's moving castle last night, and again today. There is something about that movie that makes me hopeful and happy. I am not usually one for happy love story endings.

Every three days I move. Gas prices being what they are, our house is too far a commute to afford and still pay all bills. Fortunately our friends have loaned us an unused apartment to live in on the weekends when both my husband and I are working normal jobs and church stuff. So I move between places just about every three days. I have internet only on Mondays due to the fact that I am home and it is my only day off each week. So that's why there has been no update for a long time.

my apartment, although a blessing because it is free and closer to work and church, has a space heater for heat and no furniture. We use a card table for a kitchen table, and a mattress sits on the floor in the bedroom.

It has been a good thing for our friends who live above us. They are new to Nashville, parenting and fixer uppers. Dave and I have had our share of construction experience (in fact I am helping her tile her bathroom Wednesday) and understand the culture shock of California to Tennessee. I feel somewhat better that my frustrating situation benefits someone else. It could be pain and misery with no purpose at all.

This temporary situation was suppose to be only till the end of the year. Now I don't know when we will be able to actually finish our house and sell it so that we can find a house closer to where our lives are.

I am pretty sure we are here in tennessee to help this church we are apart of. We are the youth leaders, we run the audio and visual stuff sunday mornings. I do the secretarial work (accounting, followup, newsletter, officey stuff). It really is the only reason we stay.

I suppose I could be content with life if I had one house, instead of two.

oh, and I took up knitting

I am having Pizza night with The youth from my church. I am awaiting excited teens to bounce through my door and loose thier creativity on the pizza dough I have prepared.
and I am not sure I mentioned before but Dave and I have been asked to be the youth leaders for our church. We currently have a tiny group that is all home schooled. This being in the shiny buckle of the bible belt, one of our kids is encouraged by his family to shun all evil. (most movies, by the way, are evil. I didn't know that before, but now I am enlightened?) So Dave and I have racked our brains about what sort of entertainment to show while feeding them pizza. I think we are going with Invader Zim Cartoons. There shouldn't be anything evil there.
