My Week

My life is just a tad too exciting these days!

Currently, I am a) buying my first house in a different state, b) packing up the apartment I've lived in for the past five years without movers, c) finishing up my kids portfolio for their home school review, d) coddling a teething baby and e) celebrating my beloved husband's 39 birthday, our 10the wedding anniversary and my daughter's 4 birthday (all in the same week.)

All of these projects are complicated by the fact that we don't have much money.

So when you try to buy a house without any money, you have to pass this crazy house inspection AND a special USDA loan appraisal. Which means that I can't really bond with the house we currently bid on until the last two conditions are meant.

(I'm doing GREAT at calmly being patient while my whole life is turned upside...ah, not really).

If you've got a prayer request, please pass it along. Johnny and I are doing LOTS of sweat equity for God these next two weeks. Happy to pray for you as I pack.


  1. Wow, that IS a crazy week! I'll be praying for you!

    My family is coming to visit this weekend, so if you could please pray that the visit goes well and that they have safe travels, I'd really appreciate it! :) And could you also pray that my fever/cold goes away so that I can prepare my apartment for their visit? No medicine seems to be helping... :(

    Thank you so much!

  2. We are in the end stages of a USDA loan and while for us, it has been a long process, I cannot wait to close in a week! (seller and bank issues, USDA has been great) The USDA loan was something we didn't know about but something that has come in handy, I wish more people knew about it!

    I will keep you all in my prayers! :)

  3. Praying for you, and I would love to take you up on your offer to pray for us.

    My guy and our 3 oldest children (11, 10, 10) just left this morning to drive 750 miles each way and spend the weekend helping Mom/Grandma sort through items in preparation for selling her home. Her husband (my husband's stepdad of 37 years) passed away less than a year ago, so lots of emotions and grieving in this process.

    Prayer for me would be much appreciated, too, as I'm home with our 3 youngest (7, 5, 3).

    Thank you so much!

  4. My daughter and her family are in the same boat. They've got their VA appraisal tomorrow (house inspection already done).

  5. Wowzers, that is a lot in one week! I will pray for you.
