so...we have a place to move into! (insert me singing and dancing with joy) - we havent truly rented for 5 years, so i was so out of touch with the "market" and the process and have been scouring craigslist every day for the past 3 or 4 weeks. i had thought we had found our "home" and we applied on a thursday. she told me she would get back to me in a couple of days and come tuesday i still hadn't heard from her and was freakin a little so i made an appt to see a recent ad that came out in that weekend's gazette...so we went to see it and OH DEAR the house was PERFECT! i am in love with this house...it was built in the 40s and the owner clearly loves the house and didn't marr it with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. it is in such good shape - the hardwood floors and the fireplace and the beautiful yard...and did i mention it is just a couple blocks from the beach? we heard today that we got it and i have been praising God all day. here i was thinking that i was missing out on our "home" when God knew that there were better things to come...oh yeah...also...he said that he was going to lower the rent by $100 also...what??? who does that? anwyay - just a little update for you all - we will be moving in a few short weeks...so expect fewer posts...and posts that center on packing and moving and all the crazy associated with it...but i am so excited to be moving to this darling little place...it makes the all the planning that much more worth it!
