Parting is such sweet sorrow . . .

Just got back from Roseburg - the house is now empty, the garage almost so (Tim has some stuff there to move when his new place is ready). The new owners will probably have it rented out soon. Tim is planning on getting a studio apartment from Mike Hurtienne (I taught two of his kids) - it needs some painting then Tim can move in. For now he is staying with a friend. I completed another McMahan's fall parking lot sale with help from a friend on week nights and Tim for a bit most nights. I'm a bit groggy this evening but hope an early to bed night will help. Had a very full van coming back from Roseburg - some firewood, a garbage bag full of Tim left overs, my McMahan's 'stay all night' stuff, 18 gallon cans of flour (left from Y2K 'just in case' preparations), a recliner (I actually paid money for this item!), a small roll of carpet, a new printer for the computer, and three 'rescues from the dumpster' items - a glider/rocker, a black metal + cushion swivel recliner with footstool, and a cute little table (3 foot diameter) - all need some repair, but may be available if you want and we can't figure out where to put them.

Pray for Tim - he seems to be doing good, but moving out of his only house of remembrance, starting school, finding and moving to a new place, finding time for his lady friend, hanging in with McD's, helping dad at McMahan's, etc. has stretched him some. Also we need wisdom concerning a heating system - had another contractor here today who had some different perspectives from previous ones, complicating our decision.

God bless! Hope to hear from you soon. You are in my prayers.
