Yep... We're Moving

I guess I just expected everyone to read my mind and know we were moving, but apparently I threw some of you for a loop. While packing and moving isn't high on my list of things to do while I'm nauseous and puking, sometimes you get a deal that's too good to pass up. We obviously don't have enough room in our already crowded one bedroom for a baby (although saying that makes me feel like pioneer women are looking down at me from heaven and rolling their eyes), so we've been pricing two bedrooms. Everything out there was way out of our price range. I mean seriously, if we could afford a billion dollars per month, we would just buy a house.
I was a tad bit down in the dumps about it, when a co-worker, who did not know I was pregnant or looking for a new place, told me her daughter was moving out of her apartment and she kept having the feeling she should tell me about it. It's a two bedroom apartment, on a quiet culdesac in Sugar House. It has a tiny outside storage shed and here's the best part.... although they are squished into the kitchen, it has a washer and dryer!!! It's an older place, but it fixes all the things we didn't like about our current place; noise, paying for laundry and no storage.
The owner is a sweet ninety year old man, who obviously hasn't been on Craigslist in awhile. He's only charging $550 a month. I'll pause while all my New York and LA friends pick themselves up off the floor. While it isn't my purple house out in the country with a wrap-around porch, we're excited for a little extra space.

Give it a few years and you'll get that purple house out in the country. You just can't have everything at once or people will say you're spoiled!

I hope the moving goes well. My favorite part of moving has always been getting rid of stuff! Though, I dunno if you've accumulated junk the way I have...

Sugar House is great. Does that little restaurant The Soup Kitchen still exist? I ate many a breadstick there in my college days.

Glad the heavens smiled upon you with a new place to go with the new member of your family. You'll find you need the space!

We'll miss you, but glad you are getting a bigger place, expecially with baby on the way. When are you moving?

That is so awesome. I LOVE Sugarhouse. What a blessing. What a great find.

Congratulations Lil! I am so happy for you. Also, congrats on the pregnancy. I am soooo sorry you are feeling sick and that you have to move while doing it. I have to tell you though, I love your blog and it reminds me how much I love you and miss you when I read it. Loves. Tina
