We are in the throes of house hunting. Which is much more fun on tv than in real life I have decided. We have been looking now for about a month without much success. Or short lived success as we had an offer on a house fall through over the weekend. Apparently not all realtors are ethical...go figure.
I don't consider myself extremely picky. However, there are certain non-negotiables that I have as a family with four children:
- Hard flooring in the dining area (i will never understand a carpeted dining room!)
- A yard of some sort
- 3 bedrooms plus an office/den/bonus room
- 2 bathrooms
- In a safe neighborhood
- Within our budget
That's it. Everything else I can change or fix or update or get over.
And let me tell you...taking all four kiddo's with you on a house hunting expedition is f.u.n.
If your idea of fun is your brain falling out of your head from explaining that you cannot climb in other peoples bed or play with their toys or jump off the stairs of eat their food over and over and over and over and over.
Thankfully, we have awesome friends and family who have been helping us out and we haven't had that scenario too many times. My brain thanks them too.
I know that there is a house out there for us. And I know the Lord is going to provide. And for once in my life I don't want to be surprised by His provision. I am expecting it.
Because he has NEVER let me down. And he didn't orchestrate all the details of our new stage in life so perfectly just to forget this detail.
Ok, pep talk over.
