love my extremely creative post title? i know you're so in awe you can barely stand it, haha.
i feel like it's been forever since i've really sat down to blog. we had so much going on there for awhile i could barely see straight let alone think about blogging though. now things are slowly starting to settle down and i feel like i can start to get back to 'normal'. whatever 'normal' is, haha.
as i mentioned before we lost the house. it's been exactly 20 days since we found out and at this point i'm actually kind of happy. i know it's a terrible cliche but things really do happen for a reason. not 2 days after we moved in our water heater broke. then the ac acted up. then the toilet started having issues. then one of the lights had a short. and i swear the house is actually in good condition, haha! i truly think it was a wake up call for us. not having to deal with those things and just being able to call someone has been a real blessing. so almost a month after the whole house debacle i can truly say i am thankful it didn't work out. we're in a great house in a great location exactly 4 miles from where both matt and i both work (we work 4 miles in opposite directions from our house :)) and the yard is great. we have a church in our back yard so i mean, it's pretty safe.
speaking of church it's a pentecostal congregation. i think i might just check it out because i still haven't a year later found a church i would call home but i told my mom and she was like well just don't expect it to be like a Lutheran (which is how I grew up!) church service, haha. so we'll see. it might also be out of my comfort zone. i was really spoiled in Virginia. i went to the same church for almost 20 years. i guess it's a good thing to be thrown out of that comfort zone sometimes and forced to accept change, but it's been really hard. every church i go to just doesn't feel like home. i'm not giving up yet though!
my mom visited this past week and we had so much fun! her visit deserves a post of it's own. i'll probably get to that tomorrow! i need to organize photos before i start writing.
on that note it's off to do laundry and clean up a little and be happy that i only work one day this week. i think i can handle one day of work ;) now if all weeks had longer weekends than work weeks!! :)
