7 Quick Takes # 29


Moving has commenced and it is as painful as one might expect when trying to move years worth of stuff.

Monday, after returning from our anniversary trip, we were driving down Highway 53 on our way to work when we saw a "For rent" sign in a yard of a house I have long admired and that has come up for rent before (but had never called about because I had a place to live) so we stopped and got the number and the man and his wife came over right then to show it to us. We paid the deposit and the first month's rent today and started moving in this afternoon.

I had today off and again tomorrow and it will be filled with more moving. I'm not amused but I am excited about the house.

The bedrooms in this new place are huge and I just can't get over how this house is now ours. There's a 2 car detached garage/storage space out back and a chicken coop and a rabbit hutch and I am just in love with it.

For the first time in 2 years we have 2 bathrooms again. The number of bathrooms weren't a deciding factor because we managed to make one bathroom work for the (almost) 2 years we lived in Dublin.

I have to transfer Beth to a new school after spring break ends because there was not a single soul at the school today to unenroll her from her old school so I could enroll her in the new one. That's the one thing I dislike about all this: I didn't want to have switch up schools during the school year for her. However, she is super excited about going to a new school and so I think everything will work out just fine.

Being just a couple of minutes from work doesn't hurt my feelings either. I'm really going to love it here.
