Looks Like Someone's Moving!



For the past three months or so, my poor family has been listening to me bemoan the fact that we are living in a maze of boxes and furniture- a real disaster area! I thought it would be nice for them to be able to visualize our pain- so I took some pictures of the chaos...

There may be a reader wondering at my taste in decor and at the vast amount of biodegradable- tchotchke I have strewn about...I assure you, it's not a fashion statement- it's called moving.

Of course most of you have already put two and two together and have cleverly deduced our situation from my not-so-cryptic title... good for you! However, you may be curious where we are moving and why, etc...Well, my dear friends, keep reading- all shall be revealed!




Mr. M. has accepted a teaching position at Aldersgate Christian Academy in Cincinnati, Ohio. He will be teaching four high school English courses, a Bible course, and P.E. He is very excited about this new position- and about the prospect of using his Secondary Education English degree. He is also planning to continue his own education, in hopes of obtaining a Master's degree. I am also looking forward to moving. I am uncertain where I will work, but I hope to work as a nurse in the Cincy area.

We will be moving the middle of June. We are both looking forward to being very near Bill and Sherilyn and also my sister, Jennifer, Chad (B.I.L.), Zach and Jake (our adorable nephews). We will also be a little closer to my parents, Rob and Theresa- it is always nice to be a little closer to home...don't you think?

The reason I have been complaining about the boxes for the past three months is because I got a little ahead of myself and started packing a wee bit early.

I started out thinking I would just pack a few things that we did not use often- but soon, I had a good sized pile of boxes in the middle of the living area...

It's not that I am so anxious to leave Hobe Sound, it is just that I wanted to make sure that I got it all done in time-
And, um, I think we are just about packed...

Mr. M. has been a good sport about it- even though he finally broke down and asked me to unpack some of our silverware- a man has got to have his cereal, and cereal requires a spoon.

Truly, I think we are both tired of seeing these boxes and we are just ready to get this show on the road!

Look forward to you living closer!! YEAH!! We'll have to plan some get-togethers.

How cool! :>) Are Chad and Jennifer going to be in the area as well?

You'll love Cincy. The city has character - and seasons. :>) There will always be a special place in my heart for Cincinnati - it's where we fell in love.

Happy moving.

Too funny... we are so excited about seeing you soon and helping you move! Although it looks like you don't need much help! Counting down the days with you...

Ta Da!! (imagine a trumpet fanfare here) The formal announcement has been made!!! I was waiting and wondering when you would go public with the move.

I believe the stack of boxes is even higher than Kirk decribed to me! When I read your announcement, it made it even more real to me. Now when I see the moveing truck pull up the street....

I am excited for you !! I know Cincinnati is still some distance from Kansas, but at least you will be closer. Looking forward to being with you soon as possible.

I'm truly sad to see you go. It was great working with you, even if it came to a sudden end.
I really enjoyed the tribute to your hubby in chapel today. Maybe he can come back by the time my boys are in seventh grade.
Good luck, you will be in our prayers.

Jodi -
It sure has been a long time since I've heard from or about you. I'm not sure you would remember me, but let's see. :o) My name is Jarod, and we used to hang around together a little when we were kids and teenagers at McPherson Camp. (Along with several other people.) My cousin is Rob Huff. I did a little digging from MaryEllen's blog, to your sister's blog, and found yours. It was rather enjoyable to catch up a little bit on what's happened in your life these past ten years or so. Congratulations on your marriage! You seem to have a wonderful husband, and a lot of exciting things going on for the both of you. I'm also pleased that you still have a deep love for the Lord.
I am married now myself to a wonderful girl from Georgia. Anna and I were married in January 2007. God has also blessed us with a little baby boy. Ezekiel was born in December, 2007 and he is a true treasure. If you'd like to see some pictures and etc. go on over to my blog, and check out Anna's also. (Her's is www.xanga.com/daughter80)
May God bless you and Kirk as you move and may he bring you both great joy this year.
Your friend in Christ,
Jarod Hinton

We are going to miss having you as neighbors. Mally really misses you. She sits on the A/C and looks in the window; perhaps she hopes you are coming back :-)

Yay! I just saw your Father in Law at church Sunday Morning and he told me the move was a done deal. (I think you were passed out under some boxes somewhere in Cincinnati..) Maybe I'll actually get to meet you in person now! We get to Cincy pretty often.

Ditto on Lizzy's comment...Cincinnati is awesome! After living in other states and hearing their orchestras and sat in performances, I am VERY proud to claim the CSO. I could go on and on about Cincinnati's wonderful culture, but I'll spare you and let you return to your passed-out state under the now empty boxes.

David and Sarah Fry said...

I should have explained...I saw your FIL because I was in Cincinnati. David preached there Sunday. Didn't want to be confusing.
