THE SAGA CONTINUES

Sat. 12/30/16 , 10:00 p.m.

Aaahhhhhh!!!  TEAM ALLEN…???…???…???…is STILL struggling to survive Hurricane Matthew, folks!!!  You MUST come along on another trip to “JILL’S WORLD”.  You will NOT believe this “CRAZY” day, folks!!!  Fri., 12/30/16 has been ABSOLUTELY “CRAZY”- beyond-belief!!!  I SIMPLY canNOT make this stuff up!!!  Ready???  READY!!!

BAM!!!  Now, “THIS” is moving weekend…AGAIN, folks!!!  Move #5 since evacuating our home for Hurricane Matthew back in October.  :/  I “THOUGHT”…???…???…???…things would go smoothly.  I scheduled the sofa-sectional to be delivered to our new rental home today and the beds tomorrow.  Yep, We must be out of this current rental by 10:00a.m. tomorrow, 12/31/16!!!  Sofa and beds scheduled for delivery.  CHECK!!!  What could possibly go wrong, huh???!!!???!!!???!!!  EVERYTHING was scheduled as needed, right???  WRONG!!!  🙁

Chris received an early phone call, 12:00 p.m.-ish, that the delivery truck was waiting to deliver our “stuff,” so I raced over to the townhouse…NO delivery truck “THERE”!!!  Hhhmmm…Chris called a few moments later to inform me that they were waiting at our home-home.  NOT the rental home where we were in need of furniture…in the unfurnished townhouse rental!!!  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  Why???  How???  I was a bit confused, but gave them directions to the townhouse and waited patiently…  :/

As soon as the delivery truck appeared I became even more confused.  “THIS” was NOT the sofa-sectional store delivery truck!!!  “THIS” was the appliance store delivery truck…delivering the 5 appliances we purchased back in Nov.!!!  Appliances we will need for our return “HOME,” but we do NOT need them here at this townhouse, another temporary home.  Our “HOME”-home is NOT ready for the appliances to be installed yet!!!  Aaahhhhhh!!!  Are you kidding me???!!!???!!!???!!!  Long story short…I followed the delivery truck back over to our home and they placed all 5 appliances into the garage to be installed by Grace Construction when the time is right.  :/  Whew!!!  “IT IS WELL,” Right ???  WRONG!!!

Our garage door broke as we tried to close it!!!  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  Are you kidding me???!!!???!!!???!!!  :/  I quickly phoned Bruce from Grace Construction with this new-bit of “CRAZY” news…as “THE SAGA CONTINUES”!!!  Sorry, Bruce!!!  That poor man received 2 phone calls from me within 1 hour, folks!!!  1-seeking permission to store the appliances in our garage with all the construction in progress and 2-the garage door is now broken…AGAIN (it’s 3rd ” break” since “MATT”) and will need to be fixed…AGAIN!!!  UGH!!!  :/  “IT IS WHAT IT IS,” folks!!!  :/  :/

Thank God, most boxes and “things” were moved over to this new rental property Thurs. evening by “TEAM BLUE”.   WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  GO TEAM BLUE!!!  A few  more trips were made today, Friday, before Chase had to work.  BAM!!!  We are so ready to get out of this temporary rental home and over to our next AND LAST temporary rental home before  returning  “HOME”-home!!!

HA!!!  So then about 4:30p.m, Friday afternoon…???…???…???…we received a call regarding delivery of the sofa-sectional at the townhouse!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  I raced over there so, So, SO excited..ONLY to realize that I had ordered the pieces of the sectional BACKWARDS!!!  Accidentally!!!  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  OH  NO!!!  Please say it isn’t so!!!  The 2 end pieces need to be reversed, folks!!!  It appears that “LEFT” is “RIGHT” and “RIGHT” is “LEFT”when ordering pieces of a sectional!!!  I guess.  :/. Oopse, another little “bump” in the road of our “JOURNEY” back “HOME”-home!!!  Chris, Danielle, and I were so over it by this time!!!  :/  :/  :/  “Lucky” Chase was at work and missed the…???…???…???…”excitement”.

I am so, So, SO thankful that each of us, The Allenwalds (like the Grizzwalds) have been able to chuckle a little-bit harder.  And Harder.  AND HARDER…with each and every “BUMP” encountered throughout this entire “CRAZY” day in “JILL’S WORLD”!!!  NO KIDDING, folks!!!  Chris “ROARED” with laughter when I phoned to inform him that the appliances were being delivered…”YEP, the appliances we are NOT yet ready for”!!!  Just a “CRAZY” mix-up on “OUR” part…back when we purchased them.  OH THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!  Chris roared with laughter on the other end of the phone!!!  WHEW!!!  I, thankfully, joined right in…roaring with laughter, as well!!!

Boy, what a crazy, Crazy, CRAZY day, folks!!!  Most everything that could have gone wrong…???….???…???…DID go wrong!!!

10:52 p.m.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW!!!  My body aches…AGAIN!!!  Time for bed, folks.  “TEAM ALLEN” must be out of this rental home by 10:00 a.m. tomorrow morning.  PLUS…???…???…???…I “GET” to work, as well!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  This will surely be THE BEST NEW YEAR’S EVE EVER!!!  😉

“A CHILD IS BORN”

ISAIAH 9:6, NLT
“For a child is born to us,
a son is given to us.
THE GOVERNMENT WILL REST ON HIS SHOULDERS.  😉
And He will be called:
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince Of Peace.”

Perfection is NOT a standard set for ANY man or woman by God.  He KNOWS…we humans are ALL imperfect creatures.  And He loves us…DESPITE ourselves!!!  Please allow yourself to just relax.  To be calm.  To be peaceful.  And HAPPY.  “YOU”…???…???…???…DESERVE IT, my friend.

God wants only the best… Of The Best… OF THE BEST for “YOU”.  His gifts far outshine those you can even dream.  The “BEST” of EVERYTHING…???…???…???…lies within your “SELF”.  Just call on Him.  And He’ll be there…ALWAYS & FOREVER… to meet ALL of your needs…thereby allowing the extension of His Perfect Love, Grace and Forgiveness forward to others…al-be-it “IMPERFECT”… in human nature.  AMEN.

Have I told you lately???…???…???…”YOU’RE THE BEST,” my friend!!!  And…it is now 9:10 p.m., 12/25/16.  “A CHILD IS BORN!!!”  MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!  AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!!!

THE HOLIDAY HUSTLE, 2016

OUCH!!!  “I”…???…???…???…am a horrible, terrible, no-good, very bad “MESS” this year, folks!!!  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

The holiday hustle, 2016 has NOT entailed very peaceful or graceful “MOVES”…out on the dance-floor of “LIFE” here in Jill-ville, folks!!!  “LIFE IS DIFFICULT!!!”  Unfortunately, “I” do NOT handle “STRESS” well, AT ALL!!!  The bible tells us, however, that it is during these most “DIFFICULT” times during which we gain an inner strength from GOD.  “FOR WHEN I AM WEAK, THEN I AM STRONG.” (2 Corinthians 12:10)  When times are tough…???…???…???…the TOUGH get going!!!  And Going.  AND GOING…(like the EVER-READY bunny), right???  RIGHT!!!  UGH!!!  :/

I have been weak and I MUST admit that I have NOT gained HIS strength here lately.  It’s time for a confession!!!  I’ve GOT to come “CLEAN,”!!!  I invite you to join me on another trip to “JILL’S WORLD,” folks.  A trip down…???…???…???… “CONFESSION ALLY” :/  Ready???  OKAY…(sounds like a cheer, huh?)  😉

JUST yesterday…I got caught in the “CRAZY” trap of “SELFISHNESS”!!!  Yep, “I”…???…???…???…am SELFISH…to the bone!!!  I raced around town scheduling furniture delivery to the new rental property…BEFORE even meeting the homeowner to view the townhouse AND without signing a rental agreement or anything!!!  HA!!!  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  Now “I” surely MUST be “CRAZY,” right???  RIGHT!!!

Sofa sectional is scheduled for Friday delivery, next week.  CHECK!!!  Beds are scheduled for Sat. delivery (12/31) CHECK!!!  SOOOooo, I raced over to pick up a few things for Christmas (Yep, a last minute shopper!!!  But there were others out there too.  I was NOT alone.  And ONE more thing…???…???…???…“I AIN’T GOT NO MONEY”( a previous blog post) to shop for presents ‘neath our Christmas tree this year ANYWAYS!!! 😉  Do NOT feel sorry for us, folks.  We are getting a new house…new furniture…new everything!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  We don’t need presents underneath our BEAUTIFUL, BEST-EVER, “TEAM BLUE” Christmas tree, 2016.

Now, I just wanted to pick up a few items, so  I sped right over to Cobblestone for some quick shoppin’…in Cobblestone plaza.  “QUICK,” I tell ya.  I was being “QUICK”!!!  I had people to see, places to go, and things to do.  Just hurry, Hurry, HURRY-UP and go, Go, GO…  While doin’ the HOLIDAY HUSTLE, 2016-style!!!  😉 Yep, “TEAM ALLEN” is “STILL” ( a previous blog post…or two)…SURVIVING HURRICANE MATTHEW, folks!!!

So, in my hustle-bustle rush to get in and get right back out of the shopping plaza…???…???…???…  🙁  “I”…???…???…???…was “SELFISH”!!!  I found my“SELF” initiating a “GESTUREMENT” (a topic discussed in a previous blog post) RIGHT in the parking lot…with an ELDERLY couple!!!  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  OH NO…please say it isn’t so!!!  🙁 

We were driving opposite directions down the isle.  “THEY” wanted to park here.  “I” wanted to park over there.  “I” blocked the spot “THEY” wanted.  “THEY” blocked the spot “I” wanted.  NOBODY MOVED, folks, for what seemed like HOURS!!!  UNTIL…”I” “GESTURED,” by pointing over to the parking spot that “I” wanted.  And… I sat there waiting for “THEM” to move so that I could park.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW!!!  OUCH!!!  Folks, I had a  stand-off in the parking lot with an elderly couple…FOR A STUPID PARKING SPACE!!! FORGIVE ME, FATHER!!!  For I have sinned yet AGAIN!!!   I should have just moved, folks.  And maybe parked further away.  BUT NO… “THEY” moved so that “I” could park.    :/  :/  DOUBLE OUCH, OUCH!!!

OH, and it was NOT yet over, folks!!!  I died in sheer embarrassment of my selfish behavior!!!  SO…???…???…???…I jumped out of the van after parking and tried to “DIRECT” the backed-up traffic so that the elderly couple could get the spot they wanted!!!  HUH???    :/  OH NO…please, Please…say it isn’t so!!!  :/  :/  Sadly…I really did that, folks.

The first car was frustrated that I asked her to back up as there was yet another car behind “HER”.  So, I then ran back to the NEXT car… just in time to catch her roll-her-eyes in complete disgust!!!  Oh yeah, “SHE”???…???…???…was in a hurry too!!!  So, “WHO,” pray-tell, was in a BIGGER “HURRY”???!!!???!!!???!!!  And whose “HURRY” mattered MORE???  She (the SECOND driver I tried to “DIRECT”) was so irritated with me as I walked right up, making her roll down her window so that I could explain the situation and apologize.  :/ 

Oh, and “THAT’S”… NOT ALL, folks!!!  I then proceeded over to the elderly couple’s handicapped parking space JUST to apologize for my very selfish behavior.  Yep I did, folks.  “I”…???…???…???…was so, So, SO ashamed!!!  “PLEASE FORGIVE ME.”  The elderly couple was so gracious and kind.  They accepted my apology and we exchanged “MERRY”-wishes prior to going our different “MERRY-“ ways!!!  WHEW…”IT IS WELL”…for now!!!

Yep, I had a bad day, folks.  And I am sure I’ll have many, Many, MANY more “BAD” days ahead.  🙁   ->   🙂  BUT… I also know that I’m forgiven.  THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!  And I will continue moving forward…seeking to better my“SELF” every single second of every minute.  And every hour of EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!  In HIS way, I pray.  Not my own.

“HOPING” to put a little “MERRY” in my “HOLIDAY HUSTLE, 2016,” folks.  ‘TIS THE SEASONRight???  RIGHT!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER???!!!???!!!???!!!

Where to begin???  Where to end???  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

It’s been a “CRAZY” week, folks!!!  Knowing we had to leave our current rental property Dec. 31, yet finding it extremely “DIFFICULT” to locate housing for 2 adults, 2 teens, 2 dogs, and 4 vehicles!!!  Aaahhhhhh!!!  TIME WAS RUNNING OUT, folks!!!

DEC. 19, 2016:  a co-worker “HELPED” to secure storage for our belongings currently filling this rental property’s garage.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  AND…she organized “TEAM BLUE” to move our stuff!!!  BAM!!!  THANK-YOU so, So, SO much, DOT!!!  GO TEAM CHEWY!!!

Then…DEC. 21, 2016: a different co-worker made a quick call, turned around a few moments later and said, “I think I found you a place.”  HUH???!!!???!!!???  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  You MUST be joking!!!  I quickly phoned her contact who confirmed that it was THE REAL DEAL!!!  BAM!!! 

3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a fenced-in back yard, a 1 1/2 car garage for storage of our belongings, parking room for 4 vehicles, and allowance of BOTH dogs!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

I was quick to jump all-over this opportunity…SIGHT-UNSEEN…and excitedly stated, “WE’LL TAKE IT!!!”  Right There.  RIGHT THEN!!!  BAM!!!  I then phoned my husband and notified him of this AMAZING, spur-of-the-moment…???…???…???…CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!!!

Is “THIS” too good to be true???  I sure “HOPE” not.  We are meeting the owner this evening to check out the inside of the property and to sign an agreement.  A month-to-month lease…until our home is renovated enough for us to move in!!!  BAM!!!  Thank-you, Jesus!!!

Oh…and this “NEW” rental will bring us even closer to home!!!  It’s basically just down the road a mile-or-so!!!  WHEW!!!  Ya can’t beat that one!!!  Thank-you, Thank-You, THANK-YOU, ATHENA!!!  GO TEAM “ATENA” (inside joke from a previous blog post way back there…somewhere…in the archives of this blog!)  😉

AND…???…???…???…the blessings just KEEP-ON comin’, folks!!!  A neighbor alerted my husband to some action occurring in the “HOOD” today.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Thank-you, Thank-You, THANK-YOU, Earl.  GO TEAM WARD!!!

SOOOooo…my husband stopped by our home earlier today to observe some progress being made on renovation of the “ALLEN CASTLE”!!!  DOUBLE…NO, T-R-I-P-L-E   WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Thank-you, Thank-You, THANK-YOU, Steve!!!  And GO TEAM GRACE CONSTRUCTION!!!

Yep, “LIFE IS DIFFICULT,” folks!!!  But “LIFE”…???…???…???…has NEVER been better either!!!  2016…is sure fixing-itself-up-to-be…”THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER”!!!  JUST 3 DAYS AWAY!!!   Thank-you, Thank-You, THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!

to “TURN THE OTHER CHEEK” @ numberoneteam.net.  🙁  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Forgive me, Father.  Folks,  “SOMETHING”…???…???…???… has bothered me for a couple days.  🙁  I allowed “IT” to stew.  And Stew.  AND STEW…UNTIL I researched the “ISSUE” (from “MY” perspective…NOT my teammate’s) and then responded via e-mail.  OUCH!!!  I canNOT go back and delete the reply I already sent!!!  And I MUST be honest, folks:  A stupid moment of self-pride mixed with anger(one of Satan’s favorite toxic mixes) shoved me over the edge…giving me pleasure as I struck the “SEND” button with added force!!!  :/

Hhhmmm…I typed out my sarcastic reply after MUCH a-stew…OVER NOTHING!!!  And then hit “SEND”!!!  BAH-HUM-BUG!!!  ‘TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY, JILL!!!  Fa-la-la-la-la.  La-La.  LA-LA!!!  🙁

TODAY…???…???…???…is a “NEW” day that the Lord has made, folks.  For “ME” and “US” to find “JOY” in ALL things.  To rejoice in this “DAY” and to be very, Very, VERY glad in it!!!  Regardless.  AMEN.
