There's a possible move in our near future. Steve and I have breify talked about moving back to the city (he works there) if I get into a government program to go back to school. If I did, I'd be going to school in the city. There's no point in us living in the country if we're both traveling back and forth. I love where we live now. I like the small town. I like living close to my family. And I miss the convenience of the city. It would be nice to be near our family doctor again (especially since it took a 8 and a half on a wait list to get him. And I was on the top of the list because I was pregnant!). It would be nice to be near the malls again. To be near full scrapbook stores. We'd be cutting Steve's commute by at least than half or more, depending on where we'd end up. We'd be cutting the commute to Steve's parents' house by about an hour. Unfortunatly, we'll be lengthening the commute to my parents' house.
We've just started our search for a 3 or 4 bedroom house. We want a room for everyone. Currently, we have a two bedroom. It doesn't work great when we have someone over. When my best friend visits, Monkey gets moved in with us and she gets his room. When the other two rugrats come to visit, Monkey gets moved in with us and their get his room...See a pattern here? Although, when the rugrats come down in a couple of weeks, Steve wants to try all three kids in Monkey's room. I don't think it's going to work out. I think Monkey will bug the other two. We'll see. With a three bedroom, we'll have our room, Monkey's room (aka the boys' room because his brother will share when he visits) and the spare room (aka the princess room, since that's where the princess will sleep when she's visiting. Anyone else who stays would sleep there too). Four bedrooms means I would get my own scrap room. To be shared with Steve so he can store his paintball gear.
We're also hoping to take Hercules, my chihuahua, off my parents hands. They are wonderful people who have been caring for him for me. I'd like to take the burden off of them. Plus, I miss my puppy.
Wish us luck!
Until next time...
