So yes after two weeks of insanity where our hopes of buying a home went from definite to very likely, to not looking so hot,it turns out that we are getting a house. Well we haven’t closed yet that will be next Tuesday, but our mortgage which was the last hurdle has been approved. We put a video on here a few weeks ago, and more photos will be coming soon.
We are moving on Saturday, so thats a bit backwards but we got the approval of the seller so its all good.
Well, one tv show Sam and I were watching this fall is already over, after three whole episodes! We found out tonight when Sam got home from class, and couldn’t find it on tv, or on cbs’s website. In truth, we weren’t going to watch any tv this week because we really need to be packing. But, that resolution lasted a good half day, which is doing pretty well! Oh, and we also have probably found a fridge and washing machine! Thanks to Julie, Eric, and Rob (and a lot of other people), moving will be a lot easier :) Well…. more later, maybe in the new house!
I was over at the history channels web site and was checking out the this day in history section, and noticed that this week Columbus landed in the Bahamas. Thats not the interesting part. The interesting part is the photo that they put with the story. My only bet is that it was one of Warhol’s early works. Columbus looks like a cross dresser, and there are all these men in velvet dresses bowing and waving flags. Th other really scary part is the taxi driver-esqe Priest telling the natives out of frame that he is coming for them. Here is the pic:
I would say that this falls into the “not a good witness” category. I hope they are joking, and I hope its not the bus for Zangus’ church.
Hey wow it’s been a long time! Life is so busy and different from what was going on the last time I posted, or whatever the correct verb is. By life I mean what Sam and I are filling our days with; life itself is of course the same.
Sam’s classes started again, and he’s busy with work for school, and more hours at Crown & Covenant. He also is working for the admissions guy at RPTS this year for his work hours, which is definitely more enjoyable than cleaning (I can quickly attest to that).
I started teaching Spanish at Trinity Christian School this fall, and am loving it! I have 25 students and I’m learning more everyday. Cleaning is going well, I miss Julie everyday, and dream of one day only having to clean my house! :)
Sam and I are busy (we should be more busy than we are) packing because of the move that is quickly approaching! I love our hopeful new house, and am very excited about owning a home. I can’t wait to decorate and organize everything in our new space, ha.
Other than those things, I think life is pretty normal. I will miss our apartment on Peebles St, but we are (I think) onto and exciting things! More soon hopefully…
Seminary started a few weeks ago and things are going well. I’ve found seminary to be fairly straight forward and the work load is manageable. The only trouble I get myself into is wanting to read other stuff instead of class work, for instance I’m reading four other books that are just interesting, six if two systematics count. I’m half way through DA Carson’s new Book Worship by The Word, he doesn’t end up an accapella psalmist, but its very a good read. I’m also reading Ordinary Radical, I bet that most of you would read that title and guess that I would really like the book, but so far he has not convinced me that I need to grow my hair out and live in inner city Philly as a communist, like he is. The other two books are on worship, one by John Frame and another by David Peterson, both are good. To his credit, Frame is the only writer that I have read who contends with the RP argument. I had always thought that other Presbyterians didn’t try to square their worship with the regulative principle, but Frame does. The last two are systematics one by Frame and the other by Wayne Grudem. Grudem’s is interesting, he is a reformed theologian who does not believe in the cessation of gifts, and he actually has some really interesting things to say on the whole matter. So thats my fun reading list right now. Who would had thought that the Comm. major would enjoy studying God so much.
In other news Jo and I bought a house. 5201 Duncan St 15201 its a tiny home, but its in nice shape and we are happy with it. I put a video walk thru on our web site ( www.thedesocios.com). The house is 3 Bedrooms and its located in a very dense Pittsburgh neighborhood so we like it. The best part is that the mortgage will end up being cheaper than our rent, go figure.
