Positive Sharing Time!

Yesterday I wore my mom's "lucky" necklace that my grandma gave her when she got married, which she then passed down to me when I got married. Here's are the reasons why I busted it out...

1)I had a job interview yesterday-fingers crossed they call me back and offer me a position. The school is amazing, the pay is beyond amazing, and I really, really want it!!!

2)We went to look at a different house that is even more awesome. The bedrooms are HUGE, the closets are HUGE, the kitchen is HUGE (and set up very well), the layout is fantastic and it has a garage! Wife and I are in discussion of what to offer-and my father-in-law found us a lender with a lower interest rate and lower closing costs.

*Baby update-we have decided that if we are in a home (or under contract) by the end of August we are still going to try this year, if not-we'll wait. Fingers crossed the lucky necklace pulls us through this hard time!

How could I forget to mention...

How could I forget the worst part-because we are about to be homeless and have no stable plan, all of the baby plans have been put on hold. We had already decided that we had a brief window of trying from July-September. With all of the housing issues we are dealing with, we haven't even gotten to the doctor (which was supposed to happen at the beginning of June) so it does not look like we will be having a baby for at least another situation is frustrating and emotional, but the baby situation is devastating.


The boxes are closing in on us, and we need to be out of the house in 13 days. We had a place all set up, closing date and everything...notice I said had. Yesterday all of that went to sh*t when we found out there were some major structural and ground issues that could not be seen unless you were in the crawl space. At this point the plan is to put 99.99% of our stuff in my father-in-law's garage, stay at my best friend's place for the month of July with the dogs, then possibly move to my father-in-law's place until we find something. I'm trying to convince my wife to just say f*ck it and get an apartment...I cannot believe we are about to be homeless, and that I am voluntarily giving up a perfectly good home (that we can afford and that's in a good neighborhood)...please send good thoughts our way as we figure out what we are going to do and where we are going to live...

Fingers crossed!

Our house in officially under contract and we have put an offer in on a house-fingers crossed they like our offer and take it, because we need a place ASAP!

Sorry I've been gone lately, and am likely to be gone again for a little while. Our house is currently under contract and we are moving in less than 30, we do not have a place to live yet but that is neither here nor there. Updates as they come!
