So we got some rather happy news yesterday. We found out that once we pay our fee for the wait list we will be offered a place right away. They apparently have a couple of the places we applied for empty and they have just been waiting for our payment to go through to give us the offer.

I could not be more thrilled! We may not own the place, but since the bank won’t let us buy a house, renting one is a great second. Getting a large enough place, that has a yard to rent is a bit difficult. The wait is usually pretty long. However they area we are in is a bit expensive. We could move to the other side of the city and find something a bit cheaper. However, we like the area we are in and we don’t want to have to change daycares. So we will just pay the extra that it costs. We will actually be moving to a place in the same complex as our apartment building. Yesterday I took a walk around to find the empty places. We are hoping they let a choose, because of the ones I saw, there is one that is much nicer than the rest. No painting required and the hard is much nicer.

It’s not the prettiest looking place, but I don’t care. It has a yard. It has 4 bedrooms. It has two bathrooms. There is no one living directly above or below or beside me. There is room to be comfortable for as long as we need it too. Finding this news out made such a huge difference on my mood yesterday. Living in one of these will make life so much easier. For one I won’t have to go through the daily task of trying to get 2 toddlers up three flights of stairs every day ( a task that always ends in tears ). We should find out in the next couple of days the details. I can’t wait to find out when we will be able to move in, and which one we will move into (there are 2 or 3 empty places). I really hope we get the one pictured above.

Things are really starting to look up for us, and that is exciting. I think the following quote explains it all at the moment.
