Well, hello there, strangers. It seems like forever since I've posted here. It's been a long week. We're surviving my hubby working in South Dakota, but it's been a much more difficult week than we could've anticipated, paired with lots of unforeseen stress, and I've just been wiped out. Things are moving along awful slowly with our home. We haven't yet had a showing. I'm told it's not only our area, which baffles me, because it's such a fantastic location, but also the time of year. We've got a lot of elements working against us, and I'm daily finding it difficult to remain positive.
We had a lot of luck looking at homes in South Dakota, but we really need a contract on our home here to be able to make an offer on one there or rather to simply not be at the bottom of the totem pole on a home we really love. So, we're still watching for homes, in the area we're hoping to live in there, come through the system, but we've put a serious hunt on hold for now. One step at a time. It was fun to see the area, though, and the office my hubby is working in. He's really enjoying his new job but hoping to find a different option for a place to stay soon.
So, that's the long and short of it all. We're just trying to continue to breathe and pray that everything will fall into place sooner rather than later. But before we left Kansas, my littlest had a fifth birthday to celebrate; and those are the pictures I've come here to share, with you all, today. Her day started with new clothes...
fourth birthday but bailed at the last minute. Well, I told her that we'd talk again in a year, but she simply hasn't let it go. She was so sure this time and jumped right up into the chair the minute we walked in.
