Today is the first day I have had internet since everything went crazy with the house and moving and putting 99.5% of our stuff in 1 storage POD and .5% in another storage unit.
The closing on my house went off without any problems. This may not seem like a big deal but it got a little shaky toward the end.
Wife recently got a promotion at work (with a raise) and yesterday she got an additional raise!
The sellers rejected our backup offer on the AMAZING house, and there's nothing out there at the moment that interests us. We're going to continue saving up our money until we find the "perfect" place.
*fun text anecdote regarding updates 1, 2 & 3*
Wife's dad: There is a bottle of wine in the fridge, you two should celebrate
Wife: Celebrate our homelessness?
Wife's dad: Haha, no your raise!
Wife's dad: As long as I have a home, you will never be homeless
Me: Text him, awwwww...puke
In case you are wondering, she did not.
The school where I interviewed said they would be in touch in the next couple of weeks...that's better than them telling me 'thank you but no thank you' right? I've applied at three additional schools so far just in case...
Baby news-after many LONG lesbian style over-processing conversations we have made a decision. We're going forward with the baby plans. Home or no home. We'll have a place by the time the kid is born (+10 months from now) and we're not going to wait an additional year when we may close on a place in 3-4 months.
With the realization that all of our possessions are packed TIGHT in a storage unit (and I mean TIGHT) we probably should have kept more things out than we did. Things like more than 1 frontline and interceptor for the animals, things like some fall clothes in case it takes more than a month to find a place. Good thing we don't have many bills during this time!
