We found a new home!!!

Well, as shocking as it sounds, we actually found a place today!

First of all, I have to say that us being able to swing this is going to take a miracle. We know that the Lord will provide but at this precise moment we just don't know where the funds will come from.

Housing is very expensive in our neck of the woods. The home we are in now we are paying $700 a month for rent on. At this present time, the landlord could easily get at least $1000 a month for it so that tells you how valuable land has risen here.

Well we knew we would have to pay anywhere from $1000-$1200 a month for rent for what we need. We've looked at several places and so far, everything we've seen that's in the $1000 range has been tiny and not very nice. Then we saw our dream home today. It's almost perfect!

The house is perfectly landscaped (my hubby loves doing this kind of thing so he'll be able to keep it up) it's got a stone front and is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, formal dining room, sunken living room (my DH has always wanted one of these) with a beautiful bay window. The kitchen has all new countertops and in the eating area there is a fireplace. Out back there is a beautiful Florida room and beyond that a gorgeous in-ground pool which is completely screened in and the backyard has a privacy fence all the way around it. Next to the pool there's another beautiful garden with a wooden swing. It's just incredible! They could have easily rented this for well over $2000 a month. They are in the middle of remodeling it so we can't move in til August 1st but that'll give us extra time to figure out how we'll work this into our budget.

Please say a prayer that Doug gets the job he applied for. If not, we'll have a nice roof over our heads but no food in the fridge!
