Mike and I regretted leaving our beautiful home in Texas to go back to apartment living while in Virginia. We've missed our big yard (and even the yard work that came with it!), our garage, our nice neighbors, our spacious living areas, our big bathroom and closets.
Finally, we will say goodbye to Virginia after six months of living on the second floor (ugh, groceries) of a big apartment complex where our neighbors above us walk like they weigh 400 lbs and the dogs pee on the sidewalks. Oh, to have grass again will be heaven and the Florida sunshine will make it that much better!
We've worked with our realtor since I got back from house hunting, and I'm so happy to tell you we made an offer on a beautiful home and they've accepted it!!!! We are home owners again!!! Well, OK so now I guess we'll own two homes - we still have the one in TX - but we are hoping to have it sold in the next month. Anyway, we are thrilled and can't wait to move.
Here are some pictures of the new house. It has a beautiful kitchen with lots of cabinet space - something I've missed terribly. And it looks like it has the exact tile we have in our other house. We're excited about the screened porch, too. I'm not sure if they have lots of mosquitos there, but if so, that porch will be a Godsend. It's in a great neighborhood and it's got a nice fenced-in yard for Junah, too. PERFECT!
Of course, I'm excited to start painting and decorating. Oooooh, nursery first?! It'll feel great to make it our own. We couldn't do much to the apartment because of the lease terms.
This move will be interesting for me because I now have limitations. My doctor told me I shouldn't lift more than 20 pounds and that I need to stay away from paint fumes. What will I do?! Thankfully, the military will pack and move everything for us, but it's going to be tough not being able to move furniture around and do all the painting. Maybe if we open all the windows and I wear one of those masks it'll be alright. Can't wait to call this HOME! We'll be moving in March 24.
