Busy, busy, busy!

Sheesh, I can't believe how crazy things have been around here. I'm totally shocked how long it's been since my last post.

My only excuse is, we've been looking for a house.

The good news is, after months of searching, we finally found one. But, aye, yi yi, I can't believe what we've gone through in the process.

One house we looked at had snakes in the basement. Can you believe it? Snakes! Yikes! Well, it was them or me... so I left.

Another place reminded me of the renovated house in the movie Home Alone 2.

One home had a wood foundation. How bizarre is that? Can you imagine after a few snow or rain storms? Can we say dry rot? Yikes! The only good thing about it is, if a tornado ever went through the place your whole house would already be under ground. Sheesh.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot...every time we found a house we really liked, somebody beat us to a contract or made a higher offer. Ya wanna know the really weird part about that? Say yes, okay? Thanks. Some of them had just gone on the market only hours before.

Need I say more?

Don't mind if I do thank you. *smiling*

House hunting has been quite an adventure for sure. Not one I care to repeat, thank you very much. Between boarded up windows and garages, stained beyond salvation carpets, rotted bathroom floors, and houses in desperate need of cosmetic face lifts inside and out, God led us to the sweetest house that only needs yard work and a door. It will meet all of our needs and then some.

The Lord has given us favor with the sellers. A long story indeed. God also blessed us with a washer, dryer and refrigerator, which we needed desperately.

So, on July 9th, if all goes well, we will be closing on our first home and moving in ASAP. Yippy!! Wahoo!!! I'm SO excited! Scared! Excited! Nervous! Happy! Did I mention scared? hehe

Okay, I'm done babbling. (Finally, eh? hehe) Thanks for stopping by. Please drop in again, because after we close on our house and get settled, I want to tell you about several great books I've read, and I want every one to see pictures of my new home.

Until next time...

See ya~~~
