Hello, All!

Just want to let you know I'm headed to Lafayette, IN tomorrow. I'm attending Faith Baptist Church's Biblical Counseling Conference for the first time! For those of you who have no clue what it is, check out their website.

I'll be staying with my college friend, Becky. She and her husband are graciously opening up their home to me, Anna (from IRBC) and another couple attending the conference. Get this...she's even promised we get flannel sheets. You can't get that at a five star hotel!

I also want to let you know that I'm officially buying a house pending the inspection, which will be done Monday! The closing will most likely be Feb. 19, but it's not set in stone yet. That means that I'll be moving less than a week after I get back from the conference. Lots to get done in that time.

And in other totally unrelated news, I got new dishes today! The two Corelle sets I had were very dated and used before I had them. I left them at the camp to be used by volunteers or in the dorms. See, I left them so I'd have to get new dishes. Very clever; don't you think? I've been looking every time I go to Kohl's, Target, Wal-Mart, etc. I found a set that I really liked at Wal-Mart, but it just wasn't perfect. My parents and I were at Wal-Mart today and I walked by an end display that had perfect stoneware. My mother bought them for me as a house-warming gift.

I took a picture with my phone, but I can't figure out how to download the picture to my computer. I'm so sorry because I know you are dying to see them. I guess that means you will all have to come to my house for dinner when I'm settled in.

AND my dad also gave me a house warming gift. He set me up with tools, tools and more tools. He's says I'm going to be a home owner so I need to be prepared. He even bought me this set ladder thing! Isn't he wonderful. Now, I just have to figure out how to use them.

I've been told that I'm getting too wordy lately with no pictures. So I'm sorry that I once again have a post without a single picture. I hope to change that very soon.

I forgot all about the conference. I so wish I could come see you & Becky! I hope you are learning tons of good junk :-)

Yay for dishes! Yay for tools! Mike taught me a thing or two about tool collecting when we got married & they all come to live in this little house :-)

I will pray that things so smoothly with your busy schedule & that you have the health & strength to get it all done! I'm so excited for you!
