Until we move and get settled in,this is what you should expect to see. Just updates on how things are going. Erik went down to Georgia/Alabama to check out houses this weekend.
Things started off a bit crazy when I realized that there's an hour time difference from here to there. (duh,Lindsay) So,instead of being right on time,he was running late,and I spent the morning frantically calling Realtors trying to scoot back appointment times to accommodate him running late. Also,our brand new GPS didn't recognize any of the neighborhoods,since they're all fairly new,and so he was having a really hard time finding where he was supposed to be. It was a very stressful morning. Very stressful.
On top of that,Julianna wasn't feeling well,and we had to go to urgent care in the afternoon for her ear infection. WHY does her ear only start to hurt on Fridays when there are not available appointments? I couldn't find a babysitter for Tildie so we packed her along,which wasn't much fun. Needless to say,I was exhausted by the end on Friday.
Saturday,Erik went and picked up keys for a few more houses. He found a neighborhood he really liked,and looked at 2 houses. The rent was a bit high on both houses,but we put in an application (50 bucks!!!),and asked them to lower the rent. As of today,the first house said no. The 2nd house hasn't responded yet. So,we're still on the hunt for a house.
Our original plans have changed a bit,and the kids and I will be coming to NC for a week-2 weeks while Erik tried to locate a house to live in. My mom is going to fly up next week and drive home with us. While we're there,we're going to leave our kitten Baylee with her,for an extended (forever) vacation. I'm so thankful they're willing to take her. It wasn't very smart of us to bring another pent home,while we already have 3 (yes,I just counted my kids as pets). Plus,with moving and trying to find a house,it just became to difficult to find somewhere that will take 2 pets,not to mention the pet fees are astronomical.
Um,I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. I just have to keep reminding myself that this is His plan. Not mine. NOT mine. we have been praying for wisdom as we go through this process,but it's hard at times.
Leaning hard on a Loving Savior this week,
