Life Lately

May 20th, 2024 at 06:25 pm

Things have been crazy busy lately. We took on a foreign exchange student from Belgium back in December whom we love, but is has added one more layer to our already hectic lives!

We sold our house in the only state we've ever known to move across the country to the unknown. Our house has closed and we are technically renters for the next two months... and also homeless (because we haven't found anything yet).

We have even had a very difficult time getting back to look at homes because of things going on in California (mainly with or for our foreign exchange daughter but we wouldn't change it for the world, we love her!).

In May alone, we have had: a work trip for my husband, a Kentucky Derby party, my birthday, Mother's Day, our daughter's birthday, our anniversary, a trip back to Tennessee, a trip down to Universal Studios, senior night for our exchange student, a district art show for our exchange student, I had to present at our district board meeting for my school, a going away party for our exchange daughter, several graduation parties for friends and family, and probably several things I can't think of right now.... life has been crazy!

We took a whirlwing 4 day trip to Tennessee this past weekend and visited 13 homes all over the eastern part of the state. We think we narrowed in on one and are now deciding on the offer we want to make. We want to get the house, but we don't want to overpay. We want to get the house, but we don't want to be housepoor when all is said and done. We have been running a lot of numbers (and are very thankful to our lender who has answered all of our questions and keeps rejigging the numbers for us!)

I have worked at my job for the last 18 years and it is crazy that I am saying goodbye to the only school I have ever worked at!

Finances have taken a back seat.  We are paying all of our bills and not accruing any more debt, but debt payoff has been slower than we want.  Luckily, most of our bills are on autopilot so they haven't taken up to much headspace. 

Sorry this post is all over the place, but that is how my life feels right now, too.
