Where am I?

Just a quick update. Today we officially closed on our house and moved in with my in-laws. We have now put offers on 7 houses, each falling through for one reason or another. Frustrating!!! Hopefully house number 8 will be the one.

With the changes that I am going through, simply put as living out of suitcases for a few weeks, I won't be able to update much. I have "dreams" of someday having a place to put my laptop and actually post cool stuff on this blog. Until then....

A bliss is needed

I'm not doing very well right now in the housing department. The sell of our house is going very well, in fact our buyers want to close early. I won't let them, but it's a good sign that they are not going to back out.

Besides that, I still haven't found a new place to live. House hunting has been very depressing! Each time I find a house that I love, I find out that it has multiple offers well above the asking price and then falls out of my price range. We have made three offers on houses, each failing for one reason or another. So one week before the big move, we are still homeless.

I am being very hard on myself lately and have had an extremely horrid thought run through my mind, "I hate my life!" With this being said, I really need to stop and look at the blessings that I have.

I have a beautiful little girl that I am so grateful to have in my life. I remember how depressed I was for years while I was waiting for her. She truly makes me happy every day!

I have a wonderful marriage and I am so lucky to have a companion to share my life with. I am even more grateful to know that our marriage in not just for life but for the eternities.

I am grateful that Eduardo provides for us so I can be a stay-at-home-mom. Even though this is the cause of us not getting the house I love, but I know that it is better for me to be home. I am truly happier being home then in the work-force.

I am glad that Eduardo enjoys taking me places like the symphony, opera and plays. More importantly that he likes to spend time with me.

I am grateful to have a good head on my shoulders when it comes to finances. Extremely grateful to have no debt, plenty in our emergency savings account and enough each month.

I am grateful for my good relationship and friendship with my mom.

I am grateful for my love of my ancestors who really make up a large part of my life. With that I am happy to be a part of two women organizations who honor these people. DUP (Daughters of Utah Pioneers) and DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution).

I am grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints. It is a huge part of my life and brings me peace in times like this. I know that God has a plan for me and things will work out according to His will. I need to learn some patience.

I am grateful to be who I am even though times get a little rough.
