my cute old kitchen
i am so so sad today because i am packing up my house. this little old townhouse has so many memories to me and am very sad to be leaving it. we have lived here for almost two years since we have been married. when we were looking for places to rent i walked in and knew this was the one i wanted and we went straight over to put down our deposit. it has been the best first "home" ever. well, i am sad to say that i am moving in with the in-laws. something i said i would never do, but i don't have much of a choice at this point. i am trying to look on the bright side of things because it will allow me to stay home with baby for a litte bit because i won't have to work. and we are going to save up for a down payment on our own house. also, this house has been absolutely perfect the whole time we have lived here until we gave our month notice. then everything started to break and go wrong. our carpet got flooded because the neighbors left a leak when they moved and the property management wouldn't get anyone to come fix it, so a month later the carpet is still wet, growing mold, and is super stinky. next we got a random fruit fly infestation and everyday in our masterbath there are about 15 little fruit flies. we have no clue where they come from, but it bugs. then this morning the balast went out in the kitchen lights. and this neighborhood used to be all old people that were quiet and kept to themselves, but lately the townhomes are getting rented by some.... shall i say..... ghetto individuals haha. these are all rather annoying, but i am greatful they are happening. i think it's the lord's way of letting me know it's ok to leave and i won't be so sad.
i am very greatful that i have a free place to live for a little while. we have the whole basement to ourselves with a huge family room, 2 bedrooms, and one bathroom. and it's very nice. nothing against my in-laws, they are great, but seriously i don't think anyone ever WANTS to live with their in-laws. oh well. these are pictures of my house. i took them about a year ago, but it pretty much still looks the same. i will miss this place so so SO much! :(
