In the Thick of it

The house is packed!

Two talented movers packed everything in our house in about four hours. They returned the next day to pack up the garage and shed - which took them less than three hours. And today they have the giant truck and trailer out front. It's amazing how quickly they can move seven peoples' possessions.

Tomorrow is "moving day." That is, we are actually moving in to the new house tomorrow. That will be followed by many, many days of unpacking.

I've turned over the reigns of WOW to the new Ministry Lead, Stacy. Yesterday I gave her my keys and files and binders... It wasn't as hard as I expected it to be.

I think the toughest part of this move is over - the saying good-bye. Now I'm just ready to get on with it!

I do apologize for the lack of updates (and especially the lack of any quality writing) on this here blog. I see that a few precious friends have deleted themselves from my list of "followers" during this lull. *wiping tears* For those who remain, if you'll just continue to stick with me through the next week or two of chaos, I promise to get back to some deep thinking soon.

Until then, I can barely think at all! :)


  1. Oh Tyler...glad to hear the packing went well! How awesome to have someone do that for you..woohoo!! I will definitely stay on your "followers" list and look forward to more of your words of wisdom once you are settled in!

  2. OH Tyler,

    I won't even get to say good bye to you in person...
    With this flu we have been told to stay away from know not too many want to share with with us..and Paul is feverish again tonight so we go in tomorrow-again!

    I will just need to come and see you in your new home know what they say...people who barely saw each other -see each other more when they live further's true!...there is something really weird about

    I pray your family will adjust quickly and make wonderful friends and a new home church for you will be missed but it's not like your moving to china either...

I am so happy for your kids and you that Daddy will be home more now. What a different life it will be! Enjoy your new home... even the unpacking part!! I love you!

  5. How did the first night in the new house go? I remember when Scott and I moved into our house, it was exciting to finally get to sleep in it. Take care and keep in touch.


  6. Just thinking of you, hoping that the move is going smoothly. I'm excited for you to get back to posting!!! But take your time...I'm not the center of the universe... ;)
