I've never been quite the frequent writer on my blog, but I like to bring you sunshine and sprinkles whenever I can. It helps me look at the bright side of things, even when my little corner holds a little cloud overhead. Another reason, well, it's because I still like my privacy. I haven't quite told you everything that has been going on. Not just because of privacy, but for fear of jinxing things.
For the last few months hubby and I have been staying at my sister's house. She and her hubby have been uber welcoming to us. I mean, she and I have shared a room for half of our lives and we would fight like crazy. Now, under the same roof, but in different rooms, we get along much better. It may also help that our husbands also get a long like brothers. Overall, the fact that we are here is a win-win for both parties.
Why are we here? Well, we sold our home. Although this part was easy, buying a house has not been easy. We've encountered our share of difficulties with sellers, banks, and appraisers. For the last month a half we had an eye on the perfect house. We spent all the extras to make sure we were on par...and then BAM...it became a no go. What can I tell you other than, its the shits.
So as I sit here complaining of not having enough space for myself, not having my entire closet with me, and not being able to walk around naked in my house...I am also super thankful that I have a roof over my head, that I am able to save some money, and that I get to see my family on the daily. I am also much closer to my sister and my parents than I was some time ago.
So I am sure the right home will come along soon. Because if it is meant to be...it will be.
Until then....we will just keep our fingers and toes crossed.
