Yeah, it's a real ROOM now. With a ROOF! Next thing you know it'll have shingles and a door and window.
That was formerly our back door; now it'll be the door leading onto our porch.
That's our new back door, what there is of it.
I had not intended to make such a big room; I simply wanted a place for our freezer, and some shelves where I could store big stuff like my pressure canner and my roaster-oven. Oh, and a place to hang our many coats and coveralls. Cliff insisted on making it 8 X 10, and it seems huge to me. But I'll bet I can find a use for every square foot.
In other news, at this time next week, Lord willing, Rena's divorce will be over and she and I will be heading home from Wisconsin. She has had her plate full since she moved here with her GED school (she took her test Wednesday, but won't know how she did for about a month) and the divorce hanging over her head. It's the not knowing that bothers a person, and she says she'll just be glad to have it over.
I have a rather simple prayer request for those of you who pray: Rena says she doesn't want to break down crying in court, in front of her soon-to-be ex and his girl friend. Once it's over, she said, she doesn't care how many tears she sheds. So, those of you who pray, if you'd just join me in asking God to hold back her tears until it's done, we'll appreciate it.
This will be as closeup and personal as I've ever been with divorce, and I hope it's the last time. Who knows, I might get a journal entry or two out of it.
