Homeless

For those of you who haven't heard our interesting life updates, as of today, Jordan and I are officially homeless! That is right, our house is sold, we are moved out and living out of suitcases and at the mercy of our families to take pity on us and let us crash with them until we move to Ohio. What's that you say? You thought we would have a home until the end of June? Well so did we!

We were supposed to rent back our house from the buyers until the end of June, but a week ago today, they changed the conditions on us and we didn't like them so we decided we would move out rather than meet the demands they were asking for. They were supposed to sign the papers on Friday but didn't get it done in time, so it gave us a little more time to pack up and move out. On Saturday we bought a trailer and packed up the house. Sunday we both were released from our callings at church. Monday the buyers signed the papers. Tuesday all the Young Men in our ward came over and loaded up our trailer. Wednesday some of the Young Women came over and helped me clean the house and we drove the trailer up to my parent's house in Heber where it will live until we drive it to Ohio. Today, Thursday, the funding went through and was recorded which made us officially homeless. Now I just need to evict Chicklet from my body and we will be set!

It was a week ago today that we found out we had to move out or submit to some really bad rental contract terms. I can't believe we got it all done! One thing I do know is that Heavenly Father truly blesses us when we do what he asks and when we try and take care of ourselves as much as possible. Jordan and I prayed about what we should do when faced with this dilemma, and it was a hard decision to make, but we know we made the right one because everything worked out, and way better than I could have planned it. Thanks again to all of you who helped us with the move and for all the prayers in our behalf. You will never know how it helped. I am still amazed that Chicklet hasn't made her grand entrance into the world yet, especially with how much stress I was under this past week and how much physical labor I did, but that is another blessing. As crazy as our life is and has been, we are living it and don't have a single complaint!

Wow guys...you BOUGHT a trailor? That is cool. Probably a smart move for how long you'll have it and it'll be nice to have in the future too! Good for you for not succumbing to their ridiculous (it sounds like) terms. I'm glad that everything has worked out so well and we'll continue to pray it continues to go well with Chicklet's grand entrance!

Good thing I didn't mail you your present. :) We will just have to come to Heber after you have the baby and see you. (Which is fine with me. :) I haven't seen you in forever!
