Our search for a home sweet home is over!!!

In a nutshell, this is a list of what his been going on in our lives lately...

Because this has been a really stressful couple of weeks, I decided to sum up our life in checklist form...

  • we get within two days of having a house and then lose the house because it was deemed "structurally unstable"
  • started looking for another house
  • found a couple perspective houses, made some offers, but still really liked the original house
  • A contractor went out to the house and quoted 30k plus worth of repairs
  • Will the sellers pay this horrendous amount???? hummm
  • Do we walk away from it??? hummmm
  • after much searching and praying...... we decide to go with original house
  • Sellers decide to pay the full amount and fix it before we move in
  • Move in date moves back to first of August
  • Get ready for another month in temporary housing
  • Switch apartment complexes to be closer to my radition and everything else

Nice...crazy, but NICE!! How is the new apartment complex? Still a pool and a jogging route for you? Is your house close to radiation? YAY! One more month, you can do it!

What a ride! I'm thrilled for you that the original will work out! We should definitely get together....

That's awesome!!!! I'm so happy for you that you will be getting the house you really wanted! And it'll probably seem brand new with all those renovations! :)

I found your blog through a link from another blog several months ago, and have been reading ever since. You have a great family and a wonderful spirit. So glad you found a house, hang in there.
