A lot happening in June.......

Another one bites the dust......at least I can sleep at night now, knowing.  We have been trying to save our house and decide what to do about out finances just like most of the world.  Jay just had to take another cut in pay in order to keep his job and I am only working 3 days a week and still have room in my schedule to take appointments.  Times are tougher for others at least we have a paycheck and money coming in.  Over the last couple of years we have wanted to sell and move to another area to get Stevi away from O'Brien but with the market the way it is, that is impossible.  I really do think things happen for a reason.  My friend is in the same boat as I am and she came in on Saturday (yes I worked because I have 3 who needed Saturday appointments) and she told me about Caviata in Kiley Ranch which is in Spanish Springs ( I timed it from my mom's house and it took 6 minutes). We will be starting our move on June 1st so Stevi can finish school at Alice Smith Elementary and have all agreed that the Palomino is the best choice for all of us.  They allow pets and we have two little house dogs who won't really care and no yard work for Jay.   It will save us a ton of money and get Stevi into a nicer area to start middle school.  She will be going to Shaw Middle School and Spanish Springs High School and already knows at least 5 kids that have moved out to that area that are the same grade as she is.  I feel like I have a big weight lifted off of my shoulders.  I am sad, very sad to lose our house that we have put so much heart into, but we still have each other and this is just a little speed bump.  Will this matter to us 10 years from now? Absolutely not.  So just an FYI to all of you, anybody want to buy some stuff we can't take with us?  Lets see, just to name a few, Hot tub, fire pit and chairs, hammock, bowflex, weights, elliptical trainer, washer and dryer (very nice ones I might add) college loft bed set (Stevi's) garage spare refrigerator, glass formal dining set for 6, computer desk with drawers, we need to downsize so that is what we will be doing.  Wish us luck and easy moving, lots of love!

It's sad that you will be losing your house, but the new place looks nice! It's huge! (way bigger than my house). I know it's probably not as big as you're used to, but I think you'll enjoy having less house to clean. :) Just trying to see the positive side of things for you.
