What's the easiest way out of a calling? Move to a new stake.
That's right, last Sunday was my last Sunday teaching primary...hopefully forever. Don't I wish!
Spencer and I put an offer on a house, it's been accepted and we should be closing by Friday. It's only like five miles from here, but it's a whole new stake. I'm a little bummed. I really stepped out of my comfort zone to make some friends here. I hate to have to start fresh...I'm not sure I can do it again. I will still live close to all these other girls...closer to some. Hopefully we can stay friends. I think they're great. But our friendship only started 3 or 4 months ago. It's not deep rooted. It's sometimes hard to keep that up. So wish me luck. Everyone talks about what a great ward this is. Honestly, everyone we have mentioned this to has told us that this is the ward to live in.
We tried to stay in the ward, but our realtor talked us into looking at this house. We of course fell in love and it will soon be ours. The house was a foreclosure so we got it for significantly less than what the rest of the houses in the neighborhood are going for...like tens of thousands less. It's about ten years old. It has brand new...never been lived on...carpet. Freshly painted walls and ceilings. Crown molding. Granite counter tops. Tile floor. A granite fire place. Four bedrooms. Two and a half baths. A master closet bigger than our bedroom in our last house. A front porch. A huge fenced in back yard. The living room/dining room area is set up well for throwing killer parties (as soon as we get some furniture). Seriously, the house is just about perfect. It seems way too good to be true.
I've been waiting to blog about it until I had pictures. But I never remembered my camera when we have gone to look at it. I'll get pictures up one of these day. If my blogging slows down the next couple weeks, this is why.
