Tennis Shoes and Pasta

Those were the last two things I had to get from my house that I naturally forgot to bring to my new place. Yep, for those of you who don’t know, I moved out. Back in the days when I moved in and out of my dorm at Master’s, I always had to make about 50 trips back home in order to get the random things I forgot. It was no different this time. Except this time, I didn’t move back into a dorm, but into a small house to live with three of my friends from church.

It was kind of a sudden move. No, I am not trying to run away from my parents. I’m very close with my family…it was actually a lot harder than I thought it would be. (Even though I’m only 15 minutes away.) My roommates used to live in an apartment, but the owner recently sold it and they were forced to move out. Their fourth roommate did not move with them so they needed a new one. We had talked about me moving in with them eventually; some day…I just didn’t think it would be this soon.

I also thought this would be a good time to learn how to manage money. I have never had to pay for too many things living at home, so I don’t really feel like I have learned how to do finances very well. I think it will be a good time to learn how to be content with the things God has blessed me with. I won’t have much money to buy things other than what I truly need. Tutoring and substitute teaching doesn’t pay too much. If any of you think about it, you can be praying that I will truly be wise with the money God entrusts to me.

Part of the fun of moving into a new room is the chance to decorate! I really love decorating…and I think that if I could ever run my own little side business, I would sell refinished furniture. My mom and I went to a thrift store in Sunland and found a little dresser and a roll-top desk for practically nothing and fixed them up with new paint and knobs. It was so much fun!

Everything kind of seems weird to me right now. Not going back to school, moving into a new place, waiting for calls for subbing… :0) I never really like change at first, but I know it usually winds up good. I am thankful for the opportunity to draw closer to the Lord in a time where I need to rely on Him. Well, I always need to rely on Him, but this time it is in a slightly different way. He is faithful and good and has promised to never leave me or forsake me. Isn’t that such an amazing promise?! I think so.

I love the dresser! Once I decopauged on one of our dressers. I think Hayley will tell you it looked awful but I still have fond memories of it :)
