I think it’s safe to say that these past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind for me. The biggest news is that we bought a house. Very scary stuff and very emotional for us. We love our current house. It’s perfect for the three of us right now. It’s cute, it has wonderful heritage features and is cozy. What it doesn’t have is space. We don’t need or want a ton of space, only what we absolutely need but this little house of ours no longer meets those needs. We only have 2 bedrooms, the nursery being a fairly small room, and no dining room. We have plans and dreams to have more children in the future so the very tough decision was made to upgrade.
The challenge in our nearly 4 month search was finding a place that would meet our needs and that we could afford. The housing market here is very competitive and any house that is decent is selling for $20,000-$40,000 over listing price. It’s crazy. We really couldn’t compete with that. So we made another tough decision to go with a fixer house and find something that had the space we needed and potential. Boy did we find that. I’m pretty sure we bought the ugliest house possible. It needs work. A lot of work but we’re up for the challenge.
It’s exciting to move forward but scary too. Especially with all the unknowns that come with home renovations (not to mention with a toddler running around). I’ll be posting pictures of our progress as we get ready to move and work on the new house. Wish us luck!
On a separate note, I just want to say a big congrats to our Mamavation Moms: Andrea and Libby! And congrats to our moms Stacie and Angela who didn’t get enough the first time around that they came back for more! Be sure to follow them on their amazing progress.
To those that didn’t make the final cut: take heart, this is no where near the end for you, merely the beginning. I’ve watched you guys these past weeks take those first steps and that doesn’t end because your campaign has. It’s all in your hands! And I’m here to help you through the Move-it-and-Lose-it challenge. I’ll keep posting circuits for you to do and add a few things to Bookieboo but with the intent that the cord will slowly be cut and you guys will gradually take the reigns of your own fitness and health journey!
