Home, sweet home

Taking my breakfast and writing while looking out over Seattle from the roof deck of our new house (a rental—anyone in Seattle or who knows our housing market knows that we won't be buying anytime soon). We've been painting for the last couple of weeks and got the the bulk of our move done yesterday. Moving's a lot simpler when you're going from 650 square feet to a house around twice the size. But the real difference on both painting and moving has been the help of many dear and generous friends. Most seemed surprised that it was so easy, but that's largely because so many of them helped carry the load (figuratively and literally) at different times. We're so grateful to God for them and for this place we get to call home now.

Hoping for a bit more quiet and rest as we settle in this week. There's more painting to come (hallway, den, and bedroom), but the pace is less frenetic. The den can't really be tackled until we settle more anyway—it's full of stuff that's finding homes in the rest of the house—and the other two rooms shouldn't be too tough now that we're here (famous last words, I'm sure). This past week was a harder push for us, and I think we're both ready to feel less divided.
