I know I haven't posted pictures of Montana yet, and I still plan to. It really was an amazing vacation! I got a new laptop and it was gone for a little while getting my files from my desktop, and now it's been taking me a while to figure things out -it has Windows Vista. But my real excuse has been because I've been so busy packing!

I just sealed off box #48, and have a few others in progress. I still have lots to go! I decided that since I've asked people for help on Saturday, it wouldn't be a good idea to have done a great job blogging all week but a poor job packing...

Speaking of moving, I'm going to throw out a request for help from my Minneapolis friends. I'll be unloading my truck on Sunday afternoon, starting at 1:30pm. It seems easier to me than Saturday's work, because it will just be unloading from the truck into storage, and it won't need to be packed in tight. The more people can come, the less we each will need to carry!

The storage unit is the U-Haul place on Hiway 13 in Burnsville, just one intersection west/south of 35W. You'll see it on the NE corner of Hiway 13 and Cty Rd 5. I'd love any and all help I can get, so thanks for considering coming!

Work update:
Still no job. I now tell people I'm unemployed and homeless! I love the laughs I get for that! Today my recruiter told me that jobs in the Cities are just opening up for August, but so far they're in specialty areas that I'm not qualified for. I'm real hopeful that it will happen soon since this seems to be the right timing. The Lord is sure helping me learn lessons in patience and trusting Him! The amazing thing is that it's not something I've been stressed about since He's had His hand in the whole process so far. He's been faithful and He'll continue to be faithful. It's also nice to know that my parents will let me live with them until my company gets an apartment for me, and that I was able to cash in enough vacation days from Lake Region to still get a salary for the next month or so. Thanks, Lord, for providing!

We have been keeping up on all that has been happening in your life these past few months and even though we haven't been good at commenting. We want you to know that we are very proud of you for spreading your wings to MPLS. It's a wonderful place!! My sister Jane is also planning to move down there sometime this fall. Oh, and if you want to visit NY sometime in the spring next year, you are more than welcome to stay with us. Just email or call anytime! We will be living with Dan's grandparents until Christmas. Good luck with the move. :)

Wish I could be there to help you in person, but I can't so I will be praying for all of you moving all of your things on Sat and Sun. I will also be praying for that perfect job that He has been saving for Kari Swanson. Love, Kari
