It has been a journey to get to where I am now. I can't help but think that it really has went by fast...what am I saying!! It was a LONG winter of work and time away from my hubby. When he left December 5th, we had dreams, hopes, wishes, and many prayers, that we would prepare our house to the best of our ability with a limited budget, get it on the market as soon as possible, January 13th, sell it quickly, an offer on February 16th, and find a new home in the valley that we both liked and buy it...then live happily ever after...well as close to that as possible!! LOL! We closed on our new home on April 7th, moved everything out of storage on April 8th, and now are in the process of making it OUR home. I have been searching Craigslist everyday since I got internet back, April 15th, and finally got some things I am really happy with. First a dining table and chairs...$275, then a shelving unit with 3 sections, all mahogany which are over 6 feet tall, the top shelves are glass with lights...$100 (crazy, I know!), then a smaller set of bookshelves that are about 5 feet tall and wider than the other set with glass doors...$135. I am still on the lookout for a sofa & loveseat for the livingroom, a queen bed for the guest room, and a few odds & ends. It has been a little tricky putting things away with less storage in this house than our previous house, so the bookcases will really help. I will take pictures when I feel ready to share. For now, I feel totally blessed that our prayers were answered and we are getting settled. We had played the "what if" games when this all began, but I knew that we wouldn't be still be waiting for the house to sell this summer. I felt that it would all work out and it did... :-) God is good!
Have a Blessed Day and may your dreams, hopes, wishes, and prayers come true too,
