Unexpected Move

September 30th, 2012 at 12:02 am

It's been over a year since I've posted an update. Most of that time was spent dealing with health issues for which I eventually had surgery. I'm so thankful I finally found a good doctor that could help me. Medical bills are all paid off. Now I have to decide if I want to go through with cosmetic surgery to fix leftover damage. Should do it this year as my high deductible is met already, but I haven't been able to make up my mind whether to go through with it or not.

Our summer plans were interrupted when landlord/BIL unexpectedly asked us to move out of his rental so an elderly relative could move in. It just so happened that some friends had asked us the day before if we wanted to move into a rental they had on their dairy ranch. The timing couldn't have been better.

Our new residence is in a great area and has almost twice the square footage for the same amount of rent as our old place. Plus, we have the use of a barn for storing all of DH's tools. A very good deal. It's so nice not to be cramped up in a tiny place anymore. Moving was not fun at all, but I'm glad we're here now.

Savings have increased some since last year but are still below the amount we had in 2007.
