Wow! I have been sorely neglecting this little weblog, haven’t I?
My husband and I are getting ready to move out of our apartment of the last three years—into a cute little two-bedroom house. It’s amazing how life’s simple pleasures can change over time. A couple of months ago, we were shopping for a four-bedroom home and nit-picking over the size of the yard and the age of the furnace. Now, after a few surprising twists in our career sagas, we’re just relieved to have a home at all. When my poor hubby’s job fell through and we realized we needed to rent something cheap rather than buy, we quickly found out there aren’t many decent places to rent in this town. By the time we’d called a dozen places, looked at a couple depressingly run-down options, and almost given up hope of finding something affordable yet comfortable, we were thrilled to snag this tiny, green ranch house in a quiet neighborhood. We may be here a year. It may be three years. It all depends on what happens in our respective careers. In the meantime, we’ll have a busy couple of months as we’re transitioning from apartment to house!
