Why Didn't We Do This Sooner?

If you refuse good advice, you are asking for trouble; follow it and you are safe. 13:13

It has been two weeks since Rachel moved "out" of our house, and "into" her own apartment. Now, if you've ever actually been in our house, you realize why those words in the previous sentence were in quotes.

It has been a very good two weeks. It has been good for us, and it has been very good for Rachel. We are enjoying our privacy, less talking, and having less mess in our space. She is enjoying cooking for herself, playing with her new kitty, going places without discussing it first, and in general making her own decisions. So far, I think she hasn't even gotten very lonely since she's found some new friends and had some friends over for her birthday. Also, I've been pleasantly surprised how she is finding her way around in her car to new places and also being responsible with her limited income. All in all, this has been a good move.

The main remaining issue for her at the moment is a lack of a full time job; she is hoping to hear soon about her most recent application to teach at a Christian school. In the meantime, she is babysitting some nearly every day.

How can I help you?
