Wow, it has been so long since we have posted. Hmmmm, were to start. Mid to end of November we decided to move closer to Randy's work so that he wouldn't have to continue to drive over an hour each direction for work. Randy has been wanting to move for months, but I wasn't so sure about moving closer to the border. We looked at a bunch of homes and made a decision on a home in Rio Rico. We put in the offer, they countered, we countered back and they finally accepted the offer. We were a mere week and a half from closing when the roof inspection came back requiring a new roof. We offered to pay for half of the costs of the roof, but the seller refused to pay any more than a fourth of the cost, so we cancelled the contract and went back to look for more homes. We drove by a bunch of homes and without even going inside, we were sure we didn't want any of them. We did however find a few that we wanted to see the inside, with one in particular that we really liked. The one that we liked the most is off of a creek that runs year round, has tons of trees, a workshop and a storage shed, on just under an acre, 3 beds, 2 baths, a huge fireplace, and over 2000 sq feet of space. When we went to go for a full tour, we brought Sandy with us so that we had a less biased opinion. We all really like the home. Sandy even said that she felt like she was in Idaho with how green and pretty the land is. Jolee loved running around the home and she even found the room that will be hers and hid in it. Although she did pinch her fingers in the door trying to close it. The master bedroom has a large walk in closet (hurray!). We plan on remodeling the kitchen, but everything else is pretty much okay! So we will see what will happen, if they accept the offer and everything goes through with the inspection, then we should be moving mid to end of January. We are very excited and can't wait to have more space. We have already started packing (if the first house would have gone through, we would have moved next week) and we are ready to be out of boxes.
