Day 14 -- New Home & Fantastic MIL Update

Today was a great day!! My MIL is doing great (all things considered). She had her surgery today - the open heart surgery - and the doctors were surprised and pleased at how well she did. She's still sedated and won't really be alert and aware of visitors for a couple days, so we're staying away for now. Also, she still can't see kids yet (the whole floor she's on is 12 & older. Not really sure why a 13 year old is "safer" than a 12yr old - but whatever!)... so we'll probably hold off until she's moved to the normal ICU where all family & friends can visit. So to put it the way my FIL said - she's not quite out of the woods yet, but she's a whole lot closer to the edge now! :)

Add to that wonderful news - we had a fantastic thing happen to us. My hubby had been searching daily on craigs list for house rentals. The majority of them go through agencies, and I'm so done with dealing with a company. We're looking for a family (someone similar to my mom who has a few rentals) who will look at us like people - not the way a company might look at us as a simple tenant with $$.

Well, Tom found a place and drove by it. Today, after getting Connor from school, we stopped by and looked at it together. My first impressions weren't great. But it's hard to be excited when you had your heart's set on another place (a place that we HAD, but they wouldn't wait till our lease expired here and ended up renting it to someone else). So, later tonight, the owners met us there and we got the grand tour.

It's a tad smaller than what I had wanted, and the location is NOT what I had hoped for. But it does have the things we needed - three bedrooms, a fenced in back yard, no stairs, and the potential to be a long term home (not just a place we stay in for a year, and then the owners decide to sell it or something lame). The kids had a blast running around, investigating everything! Connor is SO excited to move - he asks me every day if we can move today, lol.

So today's photo is Connor - VERY excited - about our prospective new home! :)

I'm so excited about moving. I don't know if we will get this place (but it does seem VERY possible) but I do know we'll be moving regardless. I can't wait to not have to walk up stairs just to get in my front door - and then more stairs to get up to the bedrooms. Townhomes have their upsides - but definitely down sides as well :) And separate bedrooms for the kids - oh I cannot wait!! :)

That's all for today!! See you tomorrow!! XOXO!
