Today is the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Yesterday my father-in-law and I spent at least four hours working on my van. It's still not quite right. Oh well. We'll get that universal joint fixed eventually. There's something exceedingly difficult about working on your own car with your father-in-law, who also happens to be a sometimes mechanic and knows wayyyyy more about cars than you. Ouch. It was a mildly painful experience. Anyways, from this side of the experience I can say that everything is okay.
It looks like we've got our house picked out in Caruthersville. If our loan looks like it's going to go through we'll probably start moving some stuff next week. And mowing the lawn.
Grace and peace to all of you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
