I'm giving my notice today by way of letter to my landlord. This has been a very long (nearly) year of living cramped in a small rental home, without a fenced yard, dealing with Nathan and his dog Miss Holly. Next month I'll be snoozing in my king size bed (ahhhh). Dh won't have to pull out the little trundle bed when he visits :). My dressers and nightstands will be in place, my clothes hung with care in the closet, no more rummaging through a storage box in the garage. The kitchen will finally be organized and my rolling pin and baking sheets will be unpacked! Cookbooks too will be resting on a shelf ... and I'll have plenty of bathroom space! I'm getting rather "antsy" to move and establish our home. It will be a tremendous amount of work, but the end result should be worth the hassle. All the cars will fit in the garage ... no more scraping ice and snow off the windshields in the morning ... and they should be much warmer to get into. One other benefit will be more exercise. Prior to moving I was used to running up and down stairs all day. Currently, I only have to walk about 25 feet or less to access any part of this rental. I really need the exercise! All I can say is that God has opened up so many doors and windows to allow us to relocate and build our home, that to be this close to moving is rather exciting. But, there's a lot of work to get done between now and then ... then being March 9th. Dh is expected to arrive on the 8th. During his stay we have four birthday's to celebrate ... unfortunately he will miss our grandson's arrival by about a week unless he is born early. Can you feel the excitement in the air?? Start sending me those extra packing boxes you have stashed away in the garage!
