we put an offer on a short sale in december and still havent closed on it! we decided enough is enough and decided to rent it until the short sale closes. problem is, this house is a fixer upper and we obviously arent going to fix things up until its definitely ours.
so in may 1 we moved in....
after we finished unpacking completely, we promptly found out that the house is infested with bed bugs. it is unnerving to say the least...so the past week we've REPACKED our entire house so that it can get treated and we live in limbo. all packed up while all the bugs die....
i cant tell you how much we love the back yard though. we eat all our meals outside in this glorious colorado weather.
we have ALOT of work to do still...as soon as we take care of the bug issue and as soon as we purchase this darn thing. we are learning patience, dealing with banks will do that to you. trusting God in his timing. but i can tell you this: We have never felt more *right* in an area of town before. this area is so US its ridiculous. even having people over, they say, oh this house is so you! it makes us happy to come home, to this street, to this area that we feel called too. It's a wonderful feeling to know your exactly where you need to be.
