Well, hello! It's been pretty quiet around here for a few days. On Friday night we took the five hour drive to our soon-to-be new town for two reasons. First, my step-dad retired (!) and we threw him a surprise party. He was truly surprised and there was delicious food, so it was great.
Second, we had to find a new house. I've obviously been incredibly nervous ever since we put in the 30 day notice at our current house. Would we find a new house in time? Would we like it? Luckily, I don't have to worry anymore because we found one. I saw it posted on Craigslist just hours before we left town on Friday and scheduled a viewing for Saturday morning and by this afternoon, it was ours! It's a cute house in a nice neighborhood and is bigger and cheaper than our current house. The kitchen is smaller than I'd like, but that is really the only negative. We were lucky to grab it, too. The landlord said that she was receiving calls almost every hour. The rental market is so competitive!
Only one day left until we go home so I'm off to do something relaxing.
