adverbs and adjectives

It looks like this is the week.

All the pieces are falling together...so it MAY be the week to move.

I say MAY because we haven't been able to get in touch with our landlord here to let them know of our decision. They know Shad was laid off...and they've known for the last month that this would more than likely be it...but every time we have called them in the last week to discuss details, we haven't been able to touch base with them.

It's frustrating. But we're forging ahead. The thing is...if we don't leave now, the kids and I will have to be separated from Shad again. And I'm NOT doing that if I can help it. So we're packing...and lifting...and cleaning...hoping against all hope that our landlord will FINALLY get his act together and call us back.

In the meantime, we've found a little place to live. And when I say LITTLE, I mean it. But that's okay. This time we'll have a nine month lease. Just long enough to put about 2/3 of our household goods into storage and wait until a nice BIG house in a little tiny town comes up for rent in December. ;)

And then we'll be set. No more moving until our house is built. Yes, you heard me. That is the plan. We are bound and determined to put down roots...and roots require land, at least at our house. We'll rent for a couple of years and then build. Something we've wanted to do for a long time. And living in the tiny town, at rental prices of a tiny town, will allow that.

I'm so excited! :)

In the meantime, I need to come up with a new moniker for the itty bitty little town. Something appropriate. The Emerald City is already taken...and City really doesn't describe the itty bitt little town. It doesn't even describe the middle-sized town we'll be living in temporarily. Dodge City is a little too close for comfort geographically...Po-Dunk a bit demeaning.

The Emerald Village?

I imagine this weekend you were there house hunting. Smart to move now as you won't be alone with the kids, Shad won't be alone without his family and the kids can make friends this spring so they'll have kids to play with this summer and you're in time for spring baseball for the kids.

Sure hope your house in KS sells too if it hasn't.

Small is OK as the kids can double up and you can make weekly trip to the storage unit. Does the rental have a dry basement as you can keep some things in it.

Hope it all works out for Wagons Ho this week.

Our Town is nebulous but very small town-ish, So sorry you have to move yet again, praying your house building days begin and end soon!
