I love my new house

We moved recently, it was a very stressful event, and I don't ever want to do it again. It took 19 days longer than it should have for everything to go the way it should, but in the end I have a nice new house to live in. I have to admit that I love it. I am almost embarrassed to admit to people how big it is. After all there are only four of us living in this 6 bedroom house. (S would be really annoyed if I didn't say that one of them is technically not a bedroom, it is an office.) It has taken me since September to finish repainting the house, it has been quiet the challenge. I have loved every minute of it. To me it is worth the effort to see the results, no matter how long it takes. I have loved redecorating, and making it my own. I loved decorating for Halloween. I am going to love decorating for Christmas. This is the house I want to live in for the rest of my life. I want to raise my kids here. We had a hard time finding the right house for us. Lou is a rather hard child to accommodate for. We needed something that had a closed floor plan so that we could stop using baby gates so much. (we still use them but hopefully not for long) The trend with houses these days is for really open floor plans so we had a hard time finding the right place. We did finally find the right place, unfortunately we found it only a couple of weeks after we put our house up for sale. As luck would have it, that same house hadn't sold by the time we did finally sell. Plus it had dropped by twenty thousand dollars, we figured that it was meant to be. We prayed about this a lot and found it really was the right thing to do. We have been in this house now for two and a half months and I love it every day. My kids love it, S loves it, even the pets love it. Every time someone asks me how I like my new house I just grin and tell them I love it. The best part is that I am only 8 houses away from my old house. Same ward (no new person in the ward talk... Yeah!) same neighbors, because I have the best neighborhood ever that makes it even better. It is awesome.

I remember when that house was under construction, and thinking it was a beautiful home. I'd love to come by and visit sometime, and see what you've done with the place!!
Hope you don't mind me just inviting myself....;)
