I’m MOOOOVING!!

9 Jun

Wooohooo!

It was two years in May that Hubby and I (and now our three children) have been living at my parent’s house.

At first we moved in because I was pregnant with triplets and we were sure I was going to end up on bedrest at some point. After that, we figured we would need help with three infants.

If you’ve been following along you know that we ended up losing one of those babies but had our beautiful twin girls (Evelynn and Lennon). Just when I thought we would be able to move out – we got the surprise of our lives. Mr. Nolan Xavier.

Once Nolan was out and happy and healthy, Hubby got his kidney transplant.

Now that Hubby and I and the kids are all healthy enough, I am re-promoted and Hubby has a niffty new job – we started putting out feelers looking for a new place to live.

My new job is over an hour from the city where we currently live and we were hoping to move closer. I have a friend who is renting from a company in that area that was building new homes when the housing market crashed. The bought back the homes that were foreclosed on and is now renting them out at very reasonable rates.

After looking at several houses we finally decided to apply for the smaller of two three bedroom houses. A tough choice.

The one we chose was brand new and, actually, still under construction. (It never sold.) It was missing some of the features that I would have liked (a walk in closet, and landscaping mainly…but it was $100/month less).

BUT I just got a call from the company saying that we could have the larger much nicer house for the same price!! I am *so* excited!!!!

(I was asked by the company to not tell anyone else about this deal, but since I haven’t posted the name of the company or even the city here I think it’s alright.)

Anyhow, this house used to be a model home and it is BEAUTIFUL! It has custom paint, upgraded everything, curtains, grass, trees, a roman style bath tub…..ahhhh. I am so excited.

I’m really nervous about being able to afford it…seems like money is always tight now and we don’t even pay rent! I’m sure I can pay all of the bills and feed everyone. I’m a bit nervous about diapers, clothes, toys and holidays for the kids…but where there’s a will there’s a way…right?

::fingers crossed::

We sign the rental agreement & pay our deposit on Sunday (my BIRTHDAY, by the way). Now I just have to figure out when I want to move. The next three weeks are holidays. I guess we’re moving for Father’s Day.
