I’m such a slacker at this lately. I’ve got so much on my plate though, please forgive me 🙂
I got the apartment I wanted! Move in soon. It’s in a great part of South St. Louis City. Almost all packed up, just living with the essentials in the meantime. Still looking for volunteers to help on moving day.
Frustrating thing about it though, the bank still hasn’t approved the short-sale. They’re still asking for documents. We did get the appraisal completed and with agent fees and stuff, we’re looking at about $19k. Sad on one hand, good on the other. Good because the low price should help it sell quickly, sad because I bought it at $53k and still owe $42k. Plus the ruined credit rating for not making the mortgage payments. I still believe it’s the right timing to move and all that. Just anxious about what the bank will say. I don’t want to foreclose or rent it out, and I’d rather not have to make the choice. Lease has been signed and security deposit made on the new place, no turning back now!
School’s going OK. I’m a little behind in my current class though. I should still end up with at least a B, and end 2015 with a GPA just under 3.5.
Mom and dad are hanging in there. Mom’s enjoying her rehab sessions and has talked about joining a gym. She’s trying to not let things about dad stress her out, basically by letting God have it all. That’s all she really can do, right? We have a neurology appointment for dad on the 2nd and hope to get answers and a game plan then. His latest CT scan showed nodules on his stomach though. Oncologist is a little concerned, so he’s getting more testing done.
Work is slow. It happens about once a year, but it’s still a little disconcerting. Our market is down again, like most commodities these days. Joys of the stock market
Church is busy, but in good ways. Gearing up for all the Christmas festivities. Exciting stuff, just time-consuming. Also trying to revive our Senior Citizens’ Ministry, thank God for a great team to help me with that!! Exciting things coming next year 🙂
My MS is holding steady. For the most part anyway. Having some issues with muscle tightness in my legs and arms and the vision in my right eye, but nothing I can’t handle.
I did preach at a church a couple of weeks ago and everyone seemed to enjoy what I had to say. Here’s a recording, if you’re interested.
Thinking and praying about a mission trip in 2016. I’ve got an idea of where I’d like to go, just trying to work out details and pray about it before announcing anything.
I think more than anything I’m just feeling overwhelmed with it all. I think part of the reason I haven’t been writing much is because I don’t want to have to think about everything all at once. But I know talking about it helps. And maybe if I wrote more, I wouldn’t have to update you all on everything all at once. I’ll try to find more time, somewhere…
Prayers and words of encouragement welcomed ❤
