In FULL Swing

Well, my friends, the time has come...the move is in fulll swing. We packed out our express shipment yesterday and everything else goes tomorrow. We must commence to cleaning which won't be nearly as bad as leaving 29...but I am still having to spend hours power-washing..... the sidewalk and the house hahahaha....yeah, in 29 it was raking the sand, here, it is power-washing everything. Please pray for me thoughout all this, I have a raging headache :( which I think is from allergies-but could also be from chasing Ayden and making sure he doen't climb into a box and get himself packed. Seriously people, these Japanese packers pack EVERYTHING, their own stuff if it is not set aside, small animals and children if they are in the wrong place at the wrong time. Wouldn't THAT be something to blog about...I hope NOT. But, please pray for my poor pounding head-these headaches I get can last for days. It started last night before I went to bed...and I woke up with it...ich.

Another prayer request please, there is a typhoon coming which could really put us in a bind for lodging since our reservations are at the beach...and every other place is completely booked-PCS (perm change of station) season. And, oh yeah, did I mention I am terribly afraid of flying? So without further ado, I will go back to packing and cleaning and you know, all that fun stuff involved with moving :) Thank you so very much for your prayers...they mean the world to me.

If you need somewherre to stay let me know! You are all in our prayers!

Heather my dear my prayers are with you and I hope you feel better soon. I know how the packing things goes and it will get better soon.

I fully can sympathize with your headaches. I'll pray for you. I'm sure the stress of the move is playing a huge part in it. Now, I know this may sound simple and silly, but I read where bananas are great for women's health issues. It said that bananas will help open constricted blood vessels in the head and help relieve headaches and cramps. Eaten regularly they can even help prevent the onset of headaches. I try to eat one everyday and I have to say I have noticed a HUGE difference.

My headache cure isn't as healthy...I use coffee. Any type of caffeine works though!

I'm feeling ya on the flying thing! I hate the closed-in feeling though, not so much the flying itself. Too many people...not so much room. Ugh. My mom was recently flying and was delayed for 5 hours in the plane on the runway! That's the kind of thing they'd have to medicate me for!

Prayers going up for you....

Moving is not fun. If you could skip the packing, traveling, and unpacking part of it. It would be so much easier. I hope your headache goes away soon. Hang in there. In a couple weeks when its all done and you're in your new place with most of the unpacking done, you'll feel so much better. Praying for you.

Hello, I found you bouncing from blog to blog. What a BLESSING. It is great to find other Military Spouses that are Saved Christians! Sometimes it is discouraging in the Military because it is tough to find other Christians in the service. I have added you to my blog list. If you don't want me to add you just let me know and I will be more than glad to accommodate! God Bless!
