Moving....AGAIN!

Well, that's right. We haven't even been married 3 years yet and we will have lived in 3 different places!

If you are wondering why...go ahead and read the previous two posts.

We are moving into a small house- the owner calls it 2 bedroom, but we call it 3. One of the bedrooms we count is considered a laundry room...but it's as big as a bedroom (and we don't have washer and dryer). It's very spacious, has a front and back deck, an entire yard, and TONS of storage. It is more expensive than this place (we'll be spending probably about 100 more each month) BUT- we've come to the realization that the price we pay right now, is the quality we will get...anywhere we go. So we are okay with paying a little more for a LOT better quality of life:) Down-side is it is about 5-10 minutes from school (as opposed to our 1 minute away right now). So I won't be able to walk everywhere like I usually do. That's okay though. It's winter anyway, so the walking would definitely be less. We move November 1st! Pretty exciting. I don't think our managers are too happy with us, BUT- it's their problem they never renewed our contract with us. We were done with our contract in July!

Just thought I'd let you all know. We will be very equipped for visitors now!!! Everyone come!

PS- the house is old, but not old like this crap hole we are living in right now. We feel right about it, and feel right about the Landlord.
PSS- Clay is excited that we wont have neighbors (wall-to-wall neighbors) because now we can finally BLAST our sound system with all those action flicks:)

I am so glad that you are moving at last, and I am sure you won't be sorry! What a hard time you have put in with that place. Good luck with the moving and I know you will have good help. Love you both so much grandma

Hurrah! It will be awesome to play your movies and music as loud as you want, and sing in the shower as loud as you want! At least, the latter appeals to me : ) Hey, how are you liking Little Women, I'm reading that now too. I'm almost halfway right now. Let me know. : )

I'm so excited for you! I do feel really bad for you though, that you are going to pack and move mid-term. That part seems hard. And in the cold/snow!

It kind of serves your landlord right. If he had been a better landlord, then maybe you would've felt more loyalty toward him. And, being that there isn't a lease, it's his problem.

Yea!!! good for you! I am sooo happy! I am sad you have to go through the moving part, but it will be worth it!! Yea for Clay, he will be able to enjoy the full sound! Love you!!

Yeah, weren't your neighbors "loud"? That will be nice to have that gone! I'm happy for you! I woudl LOVE to live in a house! No noise upstairs! How wonderful! That was a quick decision. You are totally right about the money vs. quality thing. Such truth. I have thought about that a lot. SWomething goes wrong and I stop a say, "well, it DID only cost this much. What can we expect?" Congrats! Hope the move goes well! Borrow a cam to take pics and show us!!!

You should go to a thrift store and look on craigs list for a table for your sewing machine and serger. SO COOL! And it's coming just in time with your classes and new serger. So exciting! I want to visit really bad@!!!!!!! I should investigate our breaks- maybe we'll have to wait until spring break. we'll see. I just really want to visit! love you-

Hey Danielle that is cool. And don't feel bad we are nowing living in our third place as well. But I guess I can't complain to much because it is our house now and we won't have to move for awhile. Well that is fun and I am sure you guys will totally love it better.

Wow, you are finally to the point where it is worth it to spend a little more for quality. I'm happy for you. It sounds great. Love you.
