We've Moved!

Well, we are finally in Fayetteville, West Virginia, since I started working this past week. School starts for students on August 26th, which is this Wednesday. I have a crazy teaching schedule, as I will be teaching four preps. How I get myself in these messes is beyong me. However, I really seem to like the people that I am going to be working with. It will be tough to teach so many subjects at once, but once I have done it, then I will be able to teach anything in the county! Bring it on...well, I say that now, but in a week a might be crying.

Hopefully this house (pictured above) will be our new home!

As for the updates on a house, we put a contract on a house and now we are in the process of waiting. We ordered an apprasial and hopefully it will be done this upcoming week. Once that is out of the way, we will now for sure if the house is going to be ours. It is really exciting, and sometimes we drive by the house just because we want to see it. So I really hope it works out, because our little hearts are set on buying it. Until then, our friend has been generous to let us stay at his place. He actually owns two little small houses in Fayettevill, which sit side by side. He has fixed up one of them, which he now lives in. The other, which was orginially rented, turned into a storage unit, as he found that he needed more space. Since it was basically available, we are using the space for a simple rental price. It works for us, because there is a kitchen, bathroom, and a small room to sleep in as he has things stored in the rest of the house. It might not be much, but about 10 days ago, I thought we might be camping!

We are staying here for about a month!

My husband Is So Great!

As I was cleaning up around the apartment, I came across this really cute To Do List that my husband put together. Just four simple things, but it is definitely our goals, but I just love it!

So, as a head’s up, we will be moving. Again. And soon. I was hired to teach in Fayette County, which will bring us to the New River Gorge area of West Virginia. This should be a permanent address for us, at least for a few years. Joe should also be getting hired as a teacher as well.

We are also on the hunt for housing. It is not exactly a town known for rental spaces, which is fine for us, since we are ready to put some roots into a place and create a home. So this next week we will start the house hunting and hopefully have our sites set on a few locations. So we are doing good on this little list that Joe has created. After a few months I would hope that we can work on the second one and isn’t the last goal really just a life long process?

Update in February

One might think that having several snow days would give me the time to write in my blog, but I have been spending a lot of time working on ...
