So we put down a deposit and first month's down on a new lease. I'm a bit irritated because I don't have the paperwork yet (I gave them $3K for crying out loud), but I guess these things take time. First, it's a a 4BR -- the other was only 3. Second, it's almost the sq. feet of our Charlotte house -- this is 2100, our house was 2400. It's no smoking, but I'm counting that as a GREAT thing. :) Oh, and community pool, practically within walking distance. And, unfortunately a new school for Jake (Will gets to keep his, which was a priority) but he's only .5 miles from it -- so, half the distance of the one we have now. And we already said that we'd keep in touch with his KJHS friends -- this new house is just about 15 minutes down the road. I'm sure he and his bestie will still see each other a lot, esp if we go get him/take him home. They'll be in the same high school after the next school year.
Lease is for the 15th (!!!) so I'm packing like a madwoman. Need to call cable and utilities and all that. Haven't put in the 30 day notice thing yet with our landlord because I have to sign that lease first to be sure. In my heart I think it's a done deal, but I need to sign something. Every day we don't get that letter out adds $38, so I want this to happen soon. By Friday, or I'm going to make serious noise.
And the funny thing? We got this one because we had our app in first -- haven't even SEEN the place -- but several others have applied, and we're getting it because we got our app in first. But it's a great neighborhood, HOA and all that, and good schools. So, I'm not worried. Hubby is, but I am certain this is a good situation for us. And, Zo gets her own room. I need it. Still not sleeping through the night and as much as I am anti CIO, something is gonna give when we move. She's 10m old. It's time for her to sleep in her bed, all night long. Dangit!!
It's more $$ than the other, but I think it will be a better fit. And, I think praying for our mean landlord made all the difference. I wrestled with it and had lots of words with God, but I did pray that He would bless that man. I really think that we were blessed instead. Never doubt that God is good, right?
So, yay!! I'm a bit stressed about everything that I still need to do, but I know it will all work out. It always does. By His grace, no doubt.
