some days are just too good....

WE HAVE A SIGNED CONTRACT ON A NEW HOUSE!!!!! I know this is not health news but I have to say, I AM SO SO SO HAPPY!!!! Ok - I just had to share.

We've been working for 4 years to get out of debt, save and prepare and now almost 5 years later it looks like we will have a place of our own again!!! Yes I said again. About 5 years ago my hubby and I decided with today's craziness it was more important to have someone running the household and raising our kids, we didn't want someone else to do it. So we got out of our home, sold off my business, and my hubby went back to school to change jobs. We went through a complete transformation from career centered, material driven people; and started to focus on our family - and it has made such an enormous difference, not only on our lives but on our marriage, our spirit and our level of contentment.

It really was an evolution for us both. What's funny is how much has happened in that small amount of time; 5 years later and my husband LOVES his job, we have 2 more amazing kids and I can honestly say - I am so truly blessed. As random as this post may seem, I just am overwhelmed tonight with gratitude and wanted to just share... cheers y'all and goodnight

I'm so happy for you!! Congratulations on the house, and on getting out of debt and changing your lifestyle. You are amazing!!

You made the same choice we did. I've never regretted it for one single day.

That's so exciting! Congratulations! I really respect your decision on becoming a stay at home mom. It's one of the most important jobs out there! :) I feel the same way and hope to be able to stay home to take care of the kids when we have them too!

This is fantastic news! I think being a stay-at-home mom is a great thing. My applause to you and your husband for making that decision. Grats on the house too!

Congratulations on your new house! I know you are overwhelmed with joy! I understand about life transformation. I'm in the process of this right now. I got a divorce about 2 years ago, had to sell my house, now I'm in school to change my career, raising my son solo, and trying to recover from the debt that my ex-husband left me. So I can appreciate a post like this. It let's me know that there is still hope for me and with careful planning and a solid strategy, in about 5 years or so, I will be in a house again. Thanks and again congrats!
