Thankful - for a lot

I couldn't pinpoint one thing this week for what i was thankful for....
It's hard when you have several things..

Ok, FINE! I will just go with one thing...

I'm super thankful because we moved into a new place a couple of weeks ago.
We lived in a townhome that was attached, which I'm sure you all know what it's like to be 
attached to someone else's wall. It just plain sucks.

I was entertaining the idea of moving. I hoped on craigslist and was looking for houses.
Now we paid a lot for our attached townhome. $1400 a month. 
So, I looked and looked at several places and finally I was about to just give up on the 
whole thing. Then one evening I was at Safeway.

Side note: Safeway in Truckee, CA is one of the only grocery stores in town
so you can't go in there without seeing anyone you don't know. It's immpossible.

I ran into a friend that I used to work with and she told me that she was moving our of her
3 bedroom house. I was like sweet. I took Ian by and it was exactly what we were looking for.
3bedroom, 2 bathrooms, 2 car garage, wood burning stove.

Another side note: Woodburning stove in the Lake Tahoe, CA area is a huge must. 
Saves you a ton of money on Gas/heat. Our gas bill could be over $200 in the winter easily.

After looking at this place I wanted it so bad. So, I went ahead and put our notice in and we moved
in 30 days later. We lived at our townhome for 3 years. We had tons of stuff that needed to be sorted and
gone through to make sure we needed all of it. In a way I like to move, because you get a chance to 
purge through all of your stuff and clean stuff out.

So happy we moved and now we have a house! It's a little more than our place now
$1550, but the extra $150 bucks is worth it to sleep better at night and have a little more
privacy and a house that you can jump around and bang around. :)
