I'm ready to go home

My bags are packed and sitting in the hallway. I had Nicole weigh them so I don't need to pay a charge for overweight luggage. I checked in online but they don't have Philip and me sitting together. I hope I can change that tomorrow at the airport. I need to copy some audible books onto my iPod, and find the power converter, and charge my cell phone. Apart from that, we are ready to go! I don't look forward to the long trip. We have 2 layovers, so it will take 28 hours door to door. I think I'll be able to sleep well when we arrive. I don't have many expectations. I just love being with my family. I filled our freezer today so Nicole will have something to cook. And I know Juergen will buy plenty of pizza and McDonalds. But that is OK. He is a great dad. He will be fine. He managed just fine when Nicole and I went to America in May. I have 100% confidence in him! And I thank God for him! So I’m going to enjoy dinner and a movie with my family, them sleep and go to the airport. What a gift to be going home!

chicken coop idea

Why not start with an IBC and cut a hole for the door? You could build closed laying boxes into it, and something for the chickens to roost on. Put some straw or saw dust on the floor. You could add vents to the side for air. If it sat inside a chicken run that you can walk into, the chickens could be safe, dry and happy. I have an extra IBC. Maybe this could be my chicken house? I bet I could even plant the outside of it with mud and grass for extra insulation and good looks.

I love the idea

I think I've loved old stuff my whole life. I love 2nd hand stores so much more then new stores. And a container house is really just taking what is old and using it in a new way. It's cheaper to build with and good for the earth.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

Juergen worked all day at the old house. This is after working every night there after work. My poor sweetheart is so tired! And he showed the house to 3 different families. It was too big for all of them. 2 families had no children, and one had a baby. It has 5 bedrooms, why do they look at all? And Sarah had a 2 hour cry over cleaning her bedroom. I think the cry had more to do with Juergen being gone all the time. We are feeling a little beaten up. I'm sure it will be OK, but it's hard not to feel discouraged. Part of this is just being too tired. "Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. " Proverbs 13:12 We are feeling the pain of a sick heart, but still hoping for the tree of life. I hope it all get’s resolved soon. And for tonight, that we can rest. Everything looks dark when you are too tired!
