We've Gone and Done IT!

We have decided to buy a house! Crazy! Scary and absolutely frustrating. I have a ton of things to do today and my hubby is off the mid. I won't be able to get any paperwork signed until he's up from his sleep.

We decided to go with the new house in our budget. We loved the idea of land but we just can't afford it right now. I did speak with some ladies at Church who gave me some great ideas for the garden I want to start. I can do all of that in my back yard with pots and bins. I've done the container gardening before and loved it. I am very much looking forward to my own planting again.

JMJ, funny you mentioned no chickens allowed in the neighborhood. We actually thought about that because it was a project we were wanting to do with the kids. Sadly, it may have to wait. The kids are not sad, they won't have to clean up after the chickens. :)

We have a closing date of June 8th. It's time to get packing. Lots and lots to do. I can't believe it! We are buying a house! Please keep us in your prayers as we go through this process. Pray for our builders that their eyes and hands are true and their product solid.
Thanks prayer warriors! Blessings!

congrats! Even though we bought our first and current house in 2003. I remember well all of that as if it was yesterday. Doing something like that is scary and exciting all in one!

Are you going to have a cyber open house? I will certainly be there and even supply the drinks.
