Random Ramblings From a Church Nerd

Internal Combustion

This week is my last "normal" week of the summer. Essentially, from here on out, I'm gone somewhere. Next week is the TNP Camp. The week after is the ELCA Churchwide Assembly. Just a few days after that, my family is taking a trip to Alaska. Each of these things are brining their own stress.

  • We don't have very many kids for camp, which is disappointing. We also are going to be very tight on money this year. We might attempt to raise some money at the Camp Out TV party on Saturday night (Did I mention that you should all watch that on Logo? Well do. And donate something on line.)
  • The ELCA Churchwide Assembly is probably going to be a very contentious event. We are making decisions as a denomination about the call and ministry of GLBT folks who are partnered. At one point, I was more optimistic, but now I'm not sure what is going to happen.
  • I'm supposed to be in charge of planning the Alaska trip, and there are aspects that aren't done yet!
But I'm not thinking about those stresses right now. No. This week, our stress is a 5 unit apartment building that we own. I spent yesterday cleaning in a unit. Most of our tenants are moving out at the end of August, so we need to replace. We aren't around a lot in August, so we are working to get some people in right now. We have a few leads, but no one is for certain. This is difficult, because the building has been a challenge ever since we got it. It consumes a lot of our conversation (including most of last night). We are pretty defeated.

If you want to help. Buy this building from us. Or at least rent an apartment. You don't have to live there, but send us money every month.

Think about it. Everyone needs a vacation home.

If the building is near downtown MPLS let me know. My son may want to move.
