The second half of the adventure began once we arrived back at NTBI from my parents’ house. There was stuff EVERYWHERE. We didn’t really have any furniture to put things on, we didn’t even have a bed. I started to arrange kitchen items because I had cabinet space for them. I hadn’t gone shopping, so we were out of food. Well, there we the refrigerator, garden pickles I had brought from Colorado, but not much else. We spent the next 4 days shopping. I hate shopping. We went everywhere trying to locate items that we needed. Thrift stores had overpriced furniture and such, but there was the potential to acquire some things from the school after all of the dorms had been filled. During all of this, there was heat and humidity. Our room was so hot that I felt like I was taking a bath! I knew that Colorado’s cool nights had spoiled me, but this was super intense, especially with only one tinsy fan! I also had water to contend with while the house was a mess. I was stretched to my limits for sure! There were at least two times when I wondered why I had ever left behind my lovely friend Colorado. Fortunately, the Lord was by my side, encouraging me to see the bigger picture. I knew deep down that “this too shall pass”. It took about 5 days to gather all of the groceries, chairs, tables, garbage baskets, etc. I was sick of spending money to say the least. We bought an air conditioner from a garage sale for $20, but found out after we drug it inside that it was too old for us to be allowed to install in our apartment. Moving is hard! Even in all of that, there were good things, it just took me a little focusing to see them.

You got my prayers, for sure!
Somehow your move to Michigan seems more adventurous than my move to Mexico! Haha.
