Mark’s progress: DePere, WI

I wasn’t able to write last night because I spent the night with my sister and she has no internet.  I know… It’s crazy isn’t it?  But she and I have our own fun.

So yesterday, Mark spent the night in Sheboygan, WI because the Walmart’s in Milwaukee wouldn’t allow overnight camping.  Sheboygan is an hour south of Green Bay and I thought he’d be able to make it to Sturgeon Bay today, but he still hasn’t found his gas cap key for the motorcycle, so he’s going to need to get a locksmith tomorrow and he figured he’d have a better chance getting one in Green Bay than in Sturgeon Bay.  He’s in DePere, just west of Green Bay tonight.

Yesterday he got out his camera and walked around the Walmart parking lot taking pictures:

Today he took an opportunity to walk from Home Depot to Menards in Green Bay and open up business accounts with them.  He says it’s very cold, in the 30’s.  In DePere, there’s still a small pile of snow in the parking lot, but not piled as high as the one in Sheboygan.


This weekend has been fantastic.  Mom bought a new love seat earlier this week, and since I have the pickup, I was able to transport it home.  We need to get her hide-a-bed out of the living room before we can move the love seat in, but hopefully my younger sister and her family can help this week when they come for spring break.

Yesterday Mom and I went to see The Shack.  How many of you have seen it?  It’s based on a book by a Portland minister.  It’s a compelling story in its own right, but it’s also about a guy who gets to spend a weekend with the triune God and ask all the questions we’d all like to ask.  I highly recommend it, but bring Kleenex!

I had an excellent day today.  First I got my son to come with me to church briefly and then we went out to lunch.  We had a really good discussion about leadership and communication and empathy.  I’m not at liberty to say more, but suffice it to say this time with him will hold me through heading back to Wisconsin.

This afternoon I went to Mom’s house and cleaned my bedroom and half bath for my younger sister and her family.  Mom came in and found my on my hands and knees scrubbing the toilet and she said, “You don’t have to do that!”  I said, “Mom, it’s what I do.”  🙂

I’m moving to my dad’s house while my sister’s family is in town.  That means I have to figure out a new bus route to work.  Dad took me around looking at all the bus stops until I found one I think will work well for me.  I am grateful, because I’m still not familiar with various parts of town.
