May 1st is "D" Day......

We made our decision and put down a deposit.  With a measuring tape and armed with measurements of all of the furniture we will be taking with us, we made a decision based on planning and the room we will need.  The unit we chose has to be upgraded to the largest unit which is the Appaloosa. 
     The great thing is the rent which used to be $2200 per month keeps dropping, it just adjusted to the market again and we will be locked into $1100 which includes water, garbage and sewer.  Being that our mortgage payment is going up to $3278 per month for a home worth $169,000 I think that we are making a very wise decision.  Also the water, sewer and trash will save us on average another $280 per month.  Good deal!  With the extra room, we probably don't have to get rid of quite as much.  I am relieved we are simplifying our lives and by moving May 1st, Stevi will transfer that Friday and will have more familiar faces at the beginning of middle school and hopefully have some new friends to invite over during the summer. Sad but happy at the same time, scared but relieved, it's bitter sweet I guess.  When life throws lemons at you make lemonaide right?  And we will, only now we will be sipping it by the pool!

Gee whiz! The Appaloosa? I'll have to go back and take a look at that. It's a shame to lose your house, but I think that this is a wise decision. Ummm, Lisa? It takes me 7 minutes to get to work. How could it take 6 minutes to get to your new digs?

The pool is definitely a bonus!

After looking at the Appaloosa, I just have to say... that loft is going to be your craft room/office, right? RIGHT?!
