Shocker

Where do I start. I have been so busy that blogging hasn't fit in the schedule too well lately. The county Nate works for has been going through a major revamping due to budget cuts. Good news, he didn't get laid off. Interesting news, he got transferred way up in the mountains, not the mountains we live at the foothills of though. We have decided upon careful consideration that the commute is too far and unsafe after a long 12 hour shift of work especially during the winter with all the snow and fog. Well, as fate would have it, the property management companies all laughed and told us that finding a horse property to rent was like finding a needle in a haystack. As we were leaving his new workplace though, a realtor called and said that oddly they had a house listed as horse property AND with 4 bedrooms ANDDDDD its $300 a month cheaper than where we live now!!! GOD is amazing. I cannot believe how exciting that news was. We went right away to see the house and its just beautiful. We are hoping to sign papers over the next few days. We are going to have a house almost 2x as big as our current home for less money. The kids will all be downstairs and Nate and I upstairs so we will have privacy. The kids will also even have their own large loft that we plan to organize as a haven for long snowy months, filled with books, toys, games, puzzles, a t.v, bean bag chairs, craft supplies, a mini trampoline(to burn off excess energy) and a table to work/craft at. It seems too good to be true. Its going to be a huge change, but we are trying to view it in a positive light as an adventure. I will write more as details of our move evolve.

ha ha I thought you were going to say that the baby's sex was wrong LOL.

Are you renting the house you are in now? If not do they have some type of transfer program to help you out?

Cindy, yeah we are renting, month to month rt now so we arent stuck in any contract here or anything thankfully. Gosh that would really complicate things

Cindy, funny you should say that though. My sis found out over the weekend that her "girl"(told at 13 weeks), has a penis!! She is so happy. She really wanted a boy so yes, that was a shock too lol.

that is good that you are on a month to month, I don't know why I thought that you bought the house that you are in. Lucky you that you are not stuck. How exciting for the move then, less to worry about! When do you move?
