Praise the Lord for WD 40!!! and free tickets to ballet

Our door has been soooo loud in squeaking noise. Not good when you have little kids and you have to wake up sometimes in the middle of the night for them. So, John was exploring the things on the balcony and he found some WD 40!!! Woohoo!---there is soooo much that is out there! Someday I will get out there and organize for our friend Nancy!

I love fixing things around here. We joke about one of our purposes here was to clear things out. We have already gone through about 1/4 of a closet and gave some things away!!! We have empty shelves now!!! I am by no means a perfectionist, but I have grown to love order and space(empty space!). Harder to do with this apartment, but still very do-able!!!

Oh, by the way, we have yet to go to the grocery store Lenta(we only go once a week to that particular one), we went to the ballet instead! Ha! We were sitting in the sixth row thinking---now this is "suffering" for the Lord---funny! We used to joke about John's parents suffering for the Lord in Hawaii when they were in missionary school years ago--and we went to Swan Lake for free!!! It was beautiful:). We got the free tickets from one of the foreign touring companies that we evidently have connections with through a translator and Marina(our "boss). John and I went with our girls, Vera and three other kids from the other family homes. John did a ballet performance in our lobby of our cracked Vera up....she is probably thinking that we are a very silly family. Well, ETA PRAVDA---("It's True" in Russian!)

Love to all of you...may you sleep well right now. It's 2 in the morning back in the lovely state of Texas!

Hi to all my family and friends that read the blog---It makes me smile to see your cities pop up on my visitor map:).

LoL--we used to joke about 'suffering for Jesus' too--when we were on the beach or in awe of the beautiful Andes mountains. Isn't God good?!!
