Essentially, that is what we are doing around here. Our current house is fixin' to be demolished, so we have been looking around town for a new place to call home. We recently found an apartment in our price range that we really like, so after much thought, prayer, and deliberation, we scheduled a meeting with the leasing agent and put in our application for rent.
(Hmmm... is that a run-on? LOL)
Praise God, we were approved!
Um, not that we thought we wouldn't be... but, you know... in everything give thanks! :P
Following the approval came some paperwork and -- my favorite part, hehehe -- decluttering! I'm not being sarcastic, either. I can't explain it, but I always feel so good when I get rid of unneeded things!
I enjoy going through the house, making a big pile on the floor, and boxing everything up to be dropped off at Goodwill or the Airman's Attic on-base.
I get frustrated when I see the entryway full of boxes that need to be loaded into the car, but I always breathe a huge sigh of relief once we return from the drop-off site. We've made 3 trips so far, and have at least one more to make.
It's a wonderful, freeing feeling for me. :o)
Now you know how truly boring I am!
Yeah, I have no idea where we got all this stuff, either! We've only been married (almost) three years and we are not big shoppers! LOL
I do my best to keep a clean home, but somehow, the clutter goes into hiding... I guess that's another one of the benefits of being a military family -- the moving around really forces me to keep on top of things! Even though the AF will pay for our household goods to be shipped, I don't want to be moving unnecessary things!
Anyway, our official move-in date is scheduled for May 10th, with our final inspection of this house being May 12th. We are really excited about our upcoming move, and I'm eager to get settled into our new place!
The most exciting thing for me is that we will have TWO bathrooms! *sigh*
Such luxury! :~D
Anyway, if you've been wondering why my posting and commenting have been somewhat scarce, now you know. There's still quite a bit of packing to be done (plus my inlaws are passing through next weekend) so I don't expect to be on here too often over the next few weeks. Maybe I'll be able to post more regularly after we're more settled into the new place... I'm hoping, at least! :o)
Tomorrow all of the young marrieds in our church are getting together for a BBQ and some games, so I need to get moving and start baking. I'll be bringing Lemon Bread (seriously good bread -- you MUST try it!) and Deviled Eggs. Yum, yum!
Happy weekend, everyone!
