It has finally happened. We found a house - hallelujah! It seems like this always happens to us, but we originally were gonna have a little more than a week to move from our apartment into our house. Now we have till Monday. The apartment complex found someone to rent our apt, but they need to start moving in Monday. SO, now we are going to be rushed and pushed to have everything out of the apartment. Especially since we are going out of town Sunday to Monday. That means we have tonight and tomorrow. Yippee...luckily I have been packing up things slowly over the past few weeks, but that still won't mean an easy move. As long as we can get everything out of the apartment, we can get our things out of storage next weekend. We had lots of family coming into town next weekend to help. But plans change. We'll make do.
I'm just thrilled to finally get a house and for the kids to have a backyard to play in. We've been house hunting for quite some time and really had our eyes set on Forest Hills. We love the neighborhood. A few weeks ago our real estate agent called and said that one had come available in Forest Hills (for the longest, there was nothing in Forest Hills - or at least in our price range). We loved it and decided to take it. The Lord was taking care of us. He has been all this time. And of all things, we can actually walk to the Forest Hills Pool. The kids are so excited (me too). We'll have plenty of time to get settled in before Macy gets here (we hope). We plan to paint the kids rooms first and over time paint other rooms. It's not as big as what we wanted, but will have plenty of room for now. Marah will be sharing a room with Macy- she is very excited about that and Joshua will have his own room pack. The 2 of them have been in bunk beds in the apartment. What memories we've had...the 4 of us in that 2-bedroom apartment. Ha Ha!
You can pray for our move to go well and in good time before Sunday. Oh and for me to NOT overdo it with lifting boxes and things. I tend to forget that I need to be really careful since there is another person growing inside of me. Sometimes it just seems easier for me to pick it up, than to wait for someone else to get it.
Anyways...I've got to get back to packing while the kids are napping (and grab a quick snack too). Have a good weekend!
