This friends is a story of procrastination and perseverance. In September of 2008 Ellie, Grady, and I (with a lot of help from a lot of friends) moved into our new residence in Vinings. Our dining room area has served as a storage unit and home for 15 to 20 boxes which just weren't very high on our list to empty. So there they sat, untouched but not out f sight and not out of mind.
Two forces encroached and the unthinkable has happened in our dining room. Those forces came in the form of my mother-in-law and a birthday party planned for Grady here at home. In just a little over ten days the dining room is box free, the China cabinet is in place (and looks great by the way), and I write tonight from my spot at the table facing the television.
Much stress has been relieved and it's as if we've added a room to our living space. The spaghetti was excellent as well. Back to sermonizing then . . . Braves Baseball!! :)
