Here are our requirements:
- a garage
- a yard (preferably fenced in for Diesel)
- 3 bedrooms
- somewhere that will allow us to bring our pets (which is a lot harder than you think!! People don't want pets in the homes they are renting out)
- somewhere in the same-ish (yea, I just said that) area that we live in now
Yea. You may be wondering why we aren't buying a house instead. Welp, we just wouldn't qualify for a loan right now and on top of that, we don't have anything for a down-payment. So, here we are, looking for a place to rent with all the home qualities that we would look for if we were buying a house. Right now we're just taking everything with baby steps and hoping that God helps us find a home that is perfect for us.
Did I mention that invitations went out? Yep. Monday. And we've already got 5 RSVPs. Can it stay this easy?? Probably not. Jake and I will still probably have to hunt down people to see if they are coming or not, but right now we are hoping that it's a piece of cake. Actually, I'm praying that it is!! Getting close to the 50-day mark!! As it gets closer I keep getting more excited. I mean, I didn't think that it was even possible to be more excited than I already was. But I am :)
Anyway, on to Life Lesson #2.
When in doubt, just take the next right step.
Oy vey. We all have had moments of regrets. Actually, I personally don't believe in regrets. I believe in mistakes and the power of learning from those mistakes and moving forward. Which I think is what Regina Brett is talking about here. I wanted to lose the 30lbs (and then some) that I gained back in grad school. What did I do? I joined a local gym and actually started to use my membership regularly. And guess what, eating right followed shortly behind that. And then guess what, I am losing 1
How about you? Tell me what Life Lesson #2 means to you.
