So my craigslist shopping brought us to a old Bed & Breakfast out in the country. I called on it and was told that there were already a number of people interested, so Eric and I hopped in the car and drove an hour to check it out. The house is about 20 miles from where Eric will work, so a little commute for him. It’s a fun place though. A HUGE yard, 4 bed and 3 baths. (the extra baths would be SO nice) Some fruit trees, a fireplace,( I have always wanted a fireplace) a hot tub, (a nice bonus). And it sits across the street from a large orchard of cherry, apple, pear, and many more trees. It is a U-Pick farm, so lots of yummy fruits right at my fingertips! So we filled out an application and now are just waiting. I have to say I am having a really hard time not dreaming about this house right now and trusting God that He knows what is best for our family. For as much fun as it has been this summer, I am really ready to have my own house again. I’m ready to unpack and settle back into a routine again. I feel like I have been running so hard and fast for so long, that I would really like to just sit in a hot tub and soak every night. Ahhhhh…. Well, hopefully we will get word on whether or not they would like to rent to us soon. If not, I guess God has something better out there for us, I just need to find it. This hunt for a house has felt like searching for a needle in a haystack.
By the way, I am posting this from a Mc Donalds parking lot because they have free wi fi if you buy something. So Maryann is with me eating a $1.00 ice cream sundae and making a mess. She has fudge all over her. But, I am determined to get this posted!!
