House Hunters

 I'm sure most of you are aware that we sold our house back in September, it only took 3 weeks to get it sold.  We were so happy but then uh oh, what are we going to do for a house?  We've looked and looked and talked about building and looked some more.  We've looked at almost 150 houses and to be honest I would be happy in almost all of them, but we have a person in our family that's just a tad bit picky.  He wants what he wants and won't settle for anything less. We also had a family decide not to sell after we chose their house and another house sold before we could make an offer on it.  We are taking the approach that they must not have been meant for us, plus there is that fact of the picky person.  I know he's just looking out for our family but I'm ready to move on to the next house and this new phase in our life.

 We lived here for 13 years and it was the only house the kids ever knew.
 I know we are all going to miss the pool this summer, unless our new house has one too!

Kevin's parents have graciously allowed us to live with them while we are searching.  It's a bit cozy but has turned out much better than we all expected.  In a little over a week we will be house sitting (this was such a blessing for our family) for some friends of ours that are going to Uganda to bring home the newest member of their family.  If you would like to read about their amazing adoption journey click here Arms Wide Open.  They could be gone from 6-8 weeks and I'm just praying that we will find a house in that time frame and close on it before they return home.

 We are making a big change for our family, moving from the Owasso area to the Broken Arrow area.  It's not that far but it's so much closer to UPS and Kevin won't have to commute on Highway 169 anymore, that will be a huge relief.  He's been involved in several accidents on 169, none of them were his fault either.  It's just a crazy, busy highway.  If you think about it, please say a prayer that we will find the perfect house for our family.
We have another family that's going through the same thing as us.  They sold their house and are living with family, we have a lot in common and meet often to get out of the house.  We've always loved the Horton's but we are bonding through this process much like we did when we both adopted from South Korea.  I'm sure you will be hearing a lot more about them in future posts, as a matter of fact I'm working on Hiking with the Horton's and will post in a couple of days.

We did have something interesting happen.  I applied for HGTV's House Hunter's TV show and never heard back from them until last week...
Thanks for reading,
