The inevitable is coming...

For the past 8 months there has been this rain cloud looming over our heads. This giant dark question mark of, "What is going to happen?" The people who own the apartment we rent have gotten into some financial difficulty and it looks like the bank will be foreclosing soon. So, Sam and I had a decision to make. Do we move or do we stick around and hope for the best?

Well, with Sam's upcoming deployment and the upcoming baby, and the fact that we won't be moving to a different state in June anymore, we have decided that it's time to look for a new place to live.

Ugh. I hate moving. We have moved nearly every year since we have been married. That is 5 different addresses! But, I don't want to be here by myself when the bank comes knocking on my door telling me I have 60 days to get out so it makes logical sense for Sam and I to move together in October. Especially since Sam isn't in school and will have the time to pack.

So, when Sam gets back we are going to start looking for places to live. Since we have time, this will be nice. I really want to live close to church still. Nearly everyone I know lives around here and it makes driving to people's places more convenient.

There are some pros about moving out of a place that is foreclosing.
1. We don't' have to worry about cleaning the place when we leave. As long as our landlords don't mind, we won't have to clean the carpet or dust or scour or anything, let the bank deal with it!
2. If there is anything we don't want, we can just leave it and let the bank deal with it.
3. We are guaranteed our deposit back (I think) since the bank doesn't have our deposit! Woot!

Of course, if the landlords want us to clean and stuff, we will. We really like them, they are great friends.

Sigh. Here we go again. We'll keep you updated with our moving progress.

Moving is Oh so much fun. We'll be praying for your next home for the family of four will be easy to find, the right fit for the new family, and that it will bless you and others that come into it.
