We at the Hotel, Motel, Holiday Inn....

We just found out that this hotel will be our home until November 28th. We stopped by the house to pick up our mail and our neighbors said that our landlord told them they can terminate their lease as it must be a pretty moldy situation up there. G couldn't resist a peak inside our (used to be) home and he said that the whole area smells like harsh chemicals and they are running air filters in every room.

On Wednesday I spent the whole day trying to find a new home for us to move into (with no luck). I viewed over seven apartments and must have called about thirty as well. At 5:00 G came home from work, jumped on Craigslist, and within minutes found us a cute little house in a safe neighborhood. This is how it always happens, so I'm figuring either I'm really bad at house hunting or he's just really lucky when it comes to that kind of stuff.

Two days later and we've signed the lease on a CUTE two bedroom house. A HOUSE. Our own house! Rent is about two hundred dollars cheaper than what we were paying for our (much larger) mold garden. The thing I love the most is that the walls are painted fun colors. I've always wanted to live in a house with colored walls, but have always been too lazy to even think about painting and then re-painting everything white before our lease ends. The house is so small it actually feels like a home, somewhere you actually look forward to coming back too after work. We get the keys on Wednesday and move in by Saturday (after Thanksgiving)!!!

Because of the smaller size of this house, we have to downsize big time. I can't wait to start throwing out a lot of our household items that never get used. It's like we're starting over, which feels really good. New baby, new house, new adventure. Go us. Yay!
