I feel like I'm caught up in a whirlwind!
We've been so busy this summer
(we are very anti-busy-ness in our household so it's been a bit unreal!).
On a whim, after much fruitless apartment hunting
(3 bedrooms to rent on a budget is nearly impossible in South Jersey--the land of expensive EVERYTHING!)
we started looking at houses.
It's. been. interesting.
(Even more interesting when you take a 1 and 4 yo with you on your house hunting journey-let's just say, I don't recommend it =)
I'm praying for the Lord's will and that the right doors will open and the wrong ones will close.
This process is bringing up many memories of our first home hunting experience which was extremely difficult but amazingly rewarding in the end.
So I'm going to bed now and waiting to hear if our very first offer will be accepted.
I'm so thankful that I'm not in control of the situation and that I can trust God with the outcome.
(And I'm extra thankful for my husband who is just the right person for me to be married to--esp. when I'm extra pregnant. =))

Let Steve take the calls from the realtor so he hears any bad news first. I was so excited when we made our first offer, and then we got news two days later that ours didn't get accepted because someone else had put in a higher one, and I cried most of the afternoon. (After that I realized you can't get attached until things have been accepted, and maybe not even then, because we lost one house after we'd been under contract for 2 weeks.) It's amazing when you finally find the right place, though! Good luck, and fingers crossed that this is the one for you! ;-)
