Say what?! I'm blogging on a Monday. Crazy I know!
But this news calls for a blog post. Why? Because never in a million years did I every think that I would be typing what I'm about to type.
we are officially under contract. on a house....okay, not that crazy...just wait thought.
we are officially under contract.
on a house.
I mean, I know that we have lived here for the past four years, but we have also been in limbo the past four years. We have been living the apartment lifestyle since we moved here...which has worked great for us, but it's time. It's time to move on, it's time to not be living in limbo, and it's time to make some big decisions. We have wanted to get back to Idaho since the day we moved to Colorado. It's where our hearts our. It's home to us. It's where our family is. It's where we want to raise our little family. Oh, and lets mention the fact that we already own a home there. minor details. At this point, Idaho is a luxury for us. Kalob has an amazing job here...which seems to be a curse and a blessing at the same time!
Anyway, after four years of trying to get back there and nothing felt right or worked out the way we needed it to, we have decided to take another plunge and buy a house here in Colorado. Okay, I've certainly been dragging my feet, but now there is absolutely no turning back now...at least not until its built, and we finish the basement...and then, there is no holding us back!
For me, it's not so much actually buying and building a house, as this means that Hudson is going to be able to play in a backyard. He will get more space in a gigantic basement. He can actually run and jump and play and we will not have to be worried about the people living below us. We will have a garage to park our cars, and if you live in Colorado, you will understand how amazing this will be. I will be able to paint the walls any color I want...wait- I take that back. I really wanted to paint some walls black and Kalob vetoed that quicker than I could finish my sentence...but it really was a nice thought right?!
This also will be Kalob and I's first house...together. Before I met Kalob, he bought a house in Boise. when we got married, I lived there for a good three weeks before we moved here to Colorado. Now although, by default it's considered "my" house & "our" house...it doesn't feel that way. Hudson even says "daddy's house". so this will officially be "OUR" house, because we will be doing it together.
I guess what all this is teaching me...you really never know what life is going to throw at you. I've been thinking alot about this decision and although we may not think that Colroado is the place that we "want" to be...clearly there is something keeping us here. It has been completely out of our control, but leads me to believe that we need to be here.
for now at least.
