Blog Every Day in April

So last year at the beginning of April, one of my favorite authors Maureen Johnson challenged her blog readers to BEDA (Blog Every Day in April). I've decided to challenge myself to do this again this year. I only got to day 4 last year (typical ESFP of me (more on that later)).

I feel like I'm not a terribly good blog writer and can only write when I have an INTESNE EMOTION (read: angry, usually). Anyway, I need to challenge myself when it comes to blog writing. Go Me!

So anyway, a week ago my landlord came and spoke to my best friend/roommate and told him that he's putting the house we live in up for sale. At first I was DEVASTATED. I've been living in this house for almost a year and a half, it had become my home. I had decorated the living room myself, I had basically put my decrative stamp on the basement here and it feels like my home.

I kind of freaked and started asking around like crazy if people knew where I could live thinking that I would be kicked out of my house like the next day. It didn't end up that way, of course, but since Lynn said he was selling the house, he's been here NON-STOP fixing things. So the last few days I feel like I'm being pushed out of the house, and Rachel agrees.

But there is this great shining light that has shined on us. Rachel was talking to some of her friends and we got news of a GORGEOUS house that we are probably going to move into. Just writing about it is giving me this burst of sparkling optimism that makes me want to do a little dance.

Moving out is a scary thing, I really have a life here. I have friends nearby and a staff of Cafe Rio employee's who basically know me by name, a great ward, and the Empress a stones throw away. But at the same time, I'm SO excited. I feel like this is a really great way to start a fresh page in my life.

I'll keep you updated on the move. The house we are (POSSIBLY) moving into is going to be AMAZING, it has a gorgeously huge balcony, a ginormous backyard, and an all around beautiful look too it. I can't wait to move if it's where we end up!!!!!!

You know, you're one lucky girl to be finding these great houses to rent that you can actually afford. When I was looking I could never find anything like that, and then I didn't have a friend to look with anyway because I stayed in the dorms longer than the rest of my friends and they all already had homes. I hope your luck continues!
