Monday we made a bid on a house, and yesterday we found out that ours was the highest bid. So if all goes well, we’re going to move very soon!!!! Hurray!
No more apartment living! No more neighbors taking showers at 4:30 am so that I can hear them! No more lawn mowing and leaf-blowing at 6 am! No more gross food smells coming from the neighbors! No more incense smells coming from the vents! No more shower heads that are too low for even me, no more tile counters (who ever thought that would be a good idea?)! No more single-paned windows! No more ugly cinderblock!
This is cause to celebrate!
I’m very excited! Plus I am so looking forward to having a backyard for Christian to play in, a kitchen that doesn’t feel like a tomb, and a guest bedroom to put up family and/or friends who may want to come for a visit (wink, wink, nudge, nudge…). And just plain TONS more space!
Thank you to everyone who has prayed for us these past few weeks in our search. We have gotten some awesome results from your prayers. The house is ten years old, in a great neighborhood and (drum roll please) right behind the elementary school (and a very highly rated one at that!)
Here is what I get to cook in for Thanksgiving:
Of course there will be a fridge in that empty spot so that it will look even better!
I can hardly wait for visitors (though it’s probably best to come to AZ between November and March, we had 107 degree weather the other day….and it’s nearing the end of September)!!
