6:30 AM

We are still unpacking.  Sometime in the future I think that we will get everything unpacked.  But what is the rush.

Pat and I moved our church membership to Iuka Baptist Church on Sunday morning.  I told several people that the last time I stood at he alter in Iuka Baptist that Pat and I were getting married.  We have both chosen a Sunday School class that we feel good about.  Yesterday we went to the Young at Heart group at IBC.  I told some of the people there that I was not sure that I was old enough to be a member of this group. (Young at Heart is the old folks group)   We had a very good pot luck meal and entertainment as well as a devotional and business meeting.

Pat and I registered to vote yesterday.  We will be able to vote in the November elections.  Yesterday was election day in Mississippi.  It seemed odd not being able to vote.  We have not lived in Mississippi to vote in the election yesterday.

Pat and I are making progress on unpacking our stuff.  The house is beginning to look like a home and not a storage building.

I went to Wynne on Monday.  I had to get some papers our of a lock box.  I closed our lock boxes in Wynne and on Tuesday rented one in Iuka. 

Pat and I went to Tupelo to get our Mississippi drivers license on Tuesday.  We had to go to Tupelo, because I had a CDL in Arkansas.  I chose to not keep the CDL, because I would have to had a doctors exam and I did not want to take the time or spend the money since I will probably never need the kind of CDL that I held.  If I had not had a CDL we could have gotten the license in Corinth.

Pat and I got an early start this morning on the attic.  We completely cleaned out the attic.  We threw most of the items stored there away.  We then moved everything our of the bedroom we refer to as Amy's.  We also started placing items in the attic.  We are putting everything in plastic boxes and labeling them so we will know what is stored in them.

This afternoon I purchased tags for all of our cars and trucks.  We will have to go to Corinth to get our drivers license.

After I purchased the tags I went Water Valley, Mississippi.  I bought a part for my old truck.  Water Valley is about 130 miles from Iuka.  Water Valley is south of Oxford,  I held my nose as I drove through Oxford.

We are making progress on getting all of the boxes unpacked.  We still have a lot to go.  It is just one box at a time. 

I have done quite a bit of yard work since we have moved in.  There is still plenty to work on to get the yard the way I want it to look like.

Pat and I installed a celing fan in the kitchen yesterday.  It really make a difference in the temperature of the kitchen.  We, last week, installed a new light fixture in Pat's office.  We have one more light fixture to install and a celing fan in what we will use as our bedroom.

I had the floors leveled and braced last week.  The crew did a very good job and the floors are now solid.

We are going to make some changes to our heating and A/C system.   We may get a complete system, or we may just improve the duct work.  The duct work has to be worked on.  The system is 32 years old.

Today is election day in Mississippi.  Pat and I cannot vote, because we have not lived in Mississippi long enough to vote.  It seems odd that there is an election and we will not be voting.  We will register soon and be able to vote in the general election in November.

Amy is planning to come to Iuka this weekend.  The family will have a birthday party for Aunt Ginny.  Se will be 90 years old.

It is strange not to have to go to work, but I think that I have adjusted well.
