Making Ourselves at Home
We’ve been living in Wichita Falls now for a full week (and a couple of days). I really like the new house we’re renting. It’s an older home, built in the 1920s, but it’s pretty comfortable. It’s smaller than our previous place, but I think we’re actually going to like it more. While I still haven’t gotten our electricity bill, the house seems more energy-efficient than the house in Lawton. It stays at a comfortable temperature, while the living room in the house in Lawton was often cold in the winter. Of course, I have no idea what this house is going to be like in the summer!
We’re almost done unpacking, so the piles of boxes have been shrinking. I had to make another run to the dumpster to get rid of a car load of broken-down boxes last night, and that helped clear out the walkways in the house a lot! Now we just have to start getting used to daily life in the new house. I don’t think we’ve been doing a very good job of keeping up with laundry, but it should get better. One of the problems with the laundry is that the dryer is outside in the storage shed; that makes it just that more inconvenient, and we’ve never been great at keeping up with laundry!
Lots of changes have taken place in my family’s lives over the last couple of months. It is all the more interesting because I did not see any of it coming! God really does look out for us, even when we think he isn’t! I’m excited about life in Texas. As I get more familiar with my job, I really think I’m going to like it, but that will have to wait for another post…
