Quick update

I’m peeping in for a quick update. The last couple of weeks have been spent meeting with Realtors, looking at houses, speaking with inspectors and making plans. Oh, and packing, driving and unpacking a 20-foot U-Haul. We couldn’t have been able to do so much without the help of friends and family, to whom we’re very grateful.

Lots of changes are happening, and they’re occurring much quicker than I thought possible. Though I’ve been really stressed, which I think has exacerbated my asthma and allergies, I can’t help but stop and acknowledge that God is good. After firing the first Realtor, we found a blessing in Anne. She’s been a great resource and has been quick to respond to inquiries during our house hunt.

After walking through several disappointments, we found a home that was too good to be true that had only been on the market for 10 days and was in the neighborhood we liked. Our offer has been accepted and now we’re in negotiations about the house inspection. There are quite a few things we want to address, but many can be expected for an older home and are acceptable at a home at this price point. They are, however, still negotiation points. Some things, however, should be fixed before moving forward. I hope the current owners are amenable and understanding. So far I feel like negotiations have been fair and honest. Hopefully we’ll have a home ready to move into on Final Moving Day in a few months.
