Moving (Part Two)

Hello again!

I have been absent for a while, because of the whole moving thing. The home inspection did not go as well as we would have liked, there were some major problems (Like a broken hot water heater, and HVAC system -- aka no hot water and no heat, a bad thing in December). The good news is the seller has agreed  to do the repairs.:)  We have the final walk through on the 27th, and God willing everything will be fine.

In the meantime my husband and I are trying to decide where to spend our Thanksgiving holiday. In spite of all the stress in our lives, we have a lot to be thankful  for. Since I don't know if I'll be able to post before the holiday I want to share the things I am thankful for:

1. God's faithfulness
2. My husband for taking care of  most of the packing and real estate stuff
3. A healthy baby
4. Friends who come through for us.
5. A roof over our heads, and food on our table
6. Clean water to drink.
7. Our soon to be new home.
8. Our jobs.
9. The fact that my husband can fix practically anything.
10. Being alive and in good health

Moving (Part One)

My husband and I have been in a frantic search for a house. Our apartment lease is up on the 30th of November, and we simply can not afford to stay here any longer. We had put in two offers over the past week and within two days there were competing bids.  The first house we looked at, and really liked, we could not afford. We were able to buy it, but not to actually live there! The second place was a really nice home in our price range, but the owners couldn't move out until the 17th  of December and my husband and I would have been homeless  for seventeen days!

Finally we have found a home we can afford and move into when our  lease is up. Yay! All we have to do is work out the closing, home inspections, and other little details.

Keep us in your prayers:)
