Random thoughts

Eric and I have felt for a while now that we need to move out of the house we are renting into a home that is ours. So for about a year now we have been looking for a home. We’ve looked at fixer uppers even though with Eric’s job and church calling he wouldn’t have much time to fix up a home. We have looked near and we have looked far. Well not really far just out of school and church boundaries. We have made offers on too many homes to count only to have them sold out from beneath us. We have thought and prayed and wondered what we should do next.

Now we have found a home. A nice small, beautiful and well maintained home and we won the bidding war. It could be ours. We just need a million bucks to get into it. OK not a million dollars, just more then we have since the loan economy keeps changing the loan we were approved for is no longer available. The FHA MFA won’t work for us since Eric has only been self employed for 1.5 years we don’t qualify. We have about 2.5 weeks to figure out what we are going to do.

What a trial we are facing. Our family is having a test of Faith. Even if nothing comes of this home we know we are doing what the Lord wants us to do. I wanted you all to know why we have sort of reverted into our shells. Please don’t tell everyone that the E family is moving. We have no idea what will come of this. We are just doing the best we can.

Now on to other news: Tomorrow I go in for my next torture session. OK, so it is just a work out that last week took 4 days to recover from. I have to admit, I enjoyed it. I love to be healthy.

Well I guess that is it for now. Bye.
