Ok - So in all honesty - I have been a wreck this past week.
If you don't already know, Burley and I have been house hunting. You can read about when that was all fun and games back in February... HERE.
Well, aparently the rental market in Denver is HORRIBLE right now, and we are experiencing that first hand. Rent is high, vacancies are slim, and we are supposed to be moving out of the loft in two weeks! Yikes...
So this past weekend we found our dream house... and then it was snatched out from underneath our noses. Which was painful and my reaction may or may not have been that of a 13 year old girl who got dumped for the first time. Very VERY sad and dramatic... Quickly turning to very VERY angry. I may have suggested egging the house, to which Burley replied "I don't know if it's necessary, babe" like a real grown up.
I then proceeded to go snowboarding with a bad attitude, becuase of the injustice that had been committed against me... Which doesnt really help the fact that I am still LEARNING how to snowboard. It was a nasty middle-school dramatic mess. I've got the butt bruises to prove it.
We see this house....
We may or may not have already snooped around in the backyard, front porch, and unlocked garage yesterday evening at the same time we thought the rental company was going to show up to show it to a family. No one showed up. Good sign.
We don't mess around now, kids. Thriftarians don't get burned twice.... no we don't.
So if you are the praying kind, please keep us in your hearts today! I have been trying to cast my anxieties down and trust that the Lord has my best interest at heart, and He has a plan.... but I REALLY hope that plan involves a 2BR/1BA with a front porch and a back yard, and hardwood floors, and some wierd character, and a cute neighborhood with treets. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?!?!
If you aren't the praying kind, please keep your fingers crossed for me :)
Thanks Guys - I'll be sure to keep you posted after our 12pm meeting today!!! Mountain time that is...
PS - This may have happened last night: I drove around the neighborhood that I want to live in, praying out loud, asking God to show us the right direction to take, and I TOLD HIM that it would be such a great witness to His glory if in that same moment a rental sign popped out, and I could tell the tale of how I needed a place to live and God just BAM.... dropped it right in front of me.
You're welcome God, for telling you how to bring glory to yourself. I'm sure you needed my assistance...
