A Place To Call Home

Well, our house hunting is over! Yeah! That was a stressful 3 weeks I really don't want to do over again! We will be closing on our new home at Union Hills and the 51 Freeway the end of April and I am super excited to get my hands on this house to make it our own. The kids are excited to sleep in their bunk beds we bought them for their birthday and even more excited to pick oranges from the tree in the backyard! We were even blessed to have a park right across the street! We couldn't be more happy at this blessing God has given us. I will post before and after pictures as we begin to move in and complete rooms and projects!

So, I promised that I'd share our big news...Looks like no new is not always good news. I did not get contacted for the ultrasound program this year, which was kind of expected. So I will finish my associates degree and try again next year. As for the surprise news...We got approved for a mortgage! We are house hunting! Wish us luck and I will post updates as we go...

Big Week Next Week

We have a jam packed weekend with laundry, work, church and more work...but next week is one we (or I!) am looking forward to! I don't want to jinx us so I am only going to tell you one of the things that's going to happen next week. By Thursday, I will know whether or not I am accepted into the Sonography Program at Gateway this year! Realistically, I think next year will be my year, but I have applied and there is a chance I will be starting full time school this August. And that is exciting! The other new will have to wait, but it is just as exciting or more exciting than school and we should know early next week! Stay tuned...

Oh yeah! And I'm pretty excited that Spring Break is over and the boys are back in school next week :0) That may sound bad, but I haven't slept too well after my graveyard shifts since they've been home. Thanks, babe, for keeping them occupied and quiet while you're home with them!
