Prayers for a new place to live

Postby andrwfields on Sun Jul 14, 2013 12:29 am

Madix and I have been in the same apartment for over a year and a half. It's a nice place and the rent is fair. With any apartment that is rented though, repairs never happen quite like we would want them to, and even though we are in a central location, I do an excessive bit of driving to get Madix to the babysitter (my mom) and we don't even live in his school district any more.

My grandpa has a house next to his that my aunt was living in for a long time. She recently moved out though to help her husband be closer to his work. This is the house I did a lot of growing up in.

Please pray for Madix and I as I'm going to speak to my grandpa tomorrow about moving in and renting the place from him. He's very old and crotchety, and even though he charges rent, he doesn't do or pay for any repairs. I'm going to make him an offer for a little less than what one of the other renters was paying him in return for me doing my own repairs.

It's a nice place, albeit small, but it would be perfect for Madix and I. And he would finally have a yard to play in instead of going to the park every day!

It convicts me too! :lol:

That's why I made it my signature though.

Sadly, it doesn't look like we're going to be moving into that house. My grandpa seems to have someone else in mind to move into it. For the time being, we'll stay where we are. Hopefully, something will come along that is a better fit for Madix and I.

In another update, it looks like my grandpa thought I was somebody else when I went to go see him. He actually thought I was my father (which is kind-of scary, because he hates him and vowed to shoot him if he ever saw him again) and that's why he didn't want me to move into the house. Still yet, he's going to ask his friend who's been renting a house in another town for about 2 years if he wants to move in there. If that guy says no, he wants Madix and I to move in.

Well, I just got confirmation on Friday that I'm going to be moving! :D

I've got two plans being set into action because of this.

#1 Be ready to move out before the first of the month.
#2 Don't take any crap with me. I'm talking junk I don't need and stuff that isn't spiritually fulfilling.

I started last night by pouring out close to $200 worth of liquor that I've collected over the past 8 years. :cry:

Well, the new place is coming along swimmingly! My dad and I had to get in and replace some flooring before I moved in, and some plumbing had to be fixed, but otherwise it's not too bad! I make little updates here and there as I go. One thing I have discovered about myself is that I quite enjoy miniature landscaping projects. I guess I didn't know before because I've never really had a place to landscape. But I've been outside several days just trimming plants, putting down mulch, and cleaning stuff up. I'm quite impressed with myself. :lol:

My next big project is to finish unpacking and organizing this place. I was setting a goal of unpacking a box a day, but that is just going too slow. I'm going to start taking it room by room until it is done. After that, I've got some stuff to clean up out in my yard to clear a space up for a fire pit.
