An Update



Hello friends,
No praise to report on a house...I was a little upset, but almost expected it. We have not heard anything from the listing agent. No no, no yes. I think its a little rude to not respond at all and my agent has tried to call the listing agent several times. My husband and I talked though, and discussed staying here in our rental and saving as much as we can and maybe, possibly look at house auctions sometime in the future. We really want something we can pay off by 15 years and not be enslaved to our home. We took Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University a few years ago and were just looking over it tonight and thought maybe we should just wait. And really, this house is cute and cheap!! The payment is great and while some might say we are throwing our money away it is better than getting into a possible bad situation. Been there, done that!!
In other news, my camera is going to have to be sent in to get fixed. The flash doesn't work and since my camera is not under warranty it will be a little over $50. If I had been smart and sent it back in October when it started acting up it would have been free to fix. Live and learn. Maybe... I would really like a new camera that has some options, like sports mode. I feel like my little one takes a year to take a photo and by then my kids are doing something else. I am open to suggestions that don't come with a couple of zero's at the end.
The pictures above are of our home, cottage(?) when it snowed this year and our eating area off the kitchen. The kitchen picture was taken last spring. I had an old window(I love those) propped up on the mantel with some canning jars filled with green peas and tea lights. I never was super-satisfied with the arrangement, something seemed off. I really do think this is a cute home and size wise is okay for a while longer. I know some people have more children in the same amount of space or less. And like I said, the price is right. Thank you all for praying. I know it wasn't in vain and I have hope that one day, in the right time, we will once again, have our own home.
Hope you all enjoy what's left of your week!!
Elise

What a darling house! I love your eating area too - so cozy and inviting!

Oh, how fun to see snow! Especially when it will be a furnace around here today! :) I do love snow -

I guess it is a praise in a way if another house had ended up being a less than ideal situation for you. It sounds wise to wait for just the right timing!

You have a wonderful, charming house! And I love the eating area! I can just imagine sitting there drinking a cup of coffee and eating strawberry shortcake! I am going to check back in with you again! Any news about the new house?
