House Update

Last week, we found out that we were not going to close on our house before the end of the month. We quickly found a storage unit and started moving stuff in there. We had to file an extension because our lender is an idiot and didn't get his stuff together very quickly. Last Wednesday, we moved all of our "big stuff" out and little by little the rest of our stuff. I forgot how much "stuff" we have until we moved...and boy do we have a lot. My (Rachael) sister Lisa, came up for Friday and Saturday and helped me clean. Also, we had some very nice ladies from our ward come on Saturday morning and help us finish cleaning. So thanks to everyone's help we were able to be done on Saturday night. It looked so clean, cleaner than it was when we moved in.

This morning (Monday) we had our move out inspection with the apartment. It went really well. I have been stressing over for a while. Chena chewed about 2 inches off the bottom of the door and we lost a 5 gallon jug of liquid soap on the carpet, so I was pretty sure we would have to pay. But she was very nice, down to earth and completely understood. I was so grateful for that...we even get money back. Hip Hip Hooray! Something I didn't think would ever happen.

We are having our house walk through tomorrow. We are waiting on GBS (Government Bidding Service) to finish with those papers and we can close. We are scheduled to close on Thursday @ 3 pm. Since it is a bank owned home, we have to wait for it to be fully funded before we can have our keys, which we are hoping in Friday! So everything pray for things to go smoothly. We are hoping to have a big moving party on Saturday.

We are so excited to get into our home. I'm very thankful for a Father in Heaven, who looks out for us and is aware of our needs. We have been so blessed through this whole process. Even though we have had some struggles, I know he is there for us and is watching over us.
