House update: Still nothin’.
Unfortunately the house we drove to see in Ocala this afternoon wasn’t a good fit for us.
The kitchen was recently upgraded and the home was pretty and spacious, but had too many rooms!
It was a split-level home and had four bedrooms upstairs and four random rooms downstairs (aside from the kitchen) and we were a bit confused by the layout.
Plus, we don’t have nearly enough stuff to fill that house!
So it’s back to the drawing board… kind of. You see, I haven’t been able to get the first home we saw on Monday out of my mind. When I mentioned my lingering thoughts to Ryan, he shared similar sentiments.
Ryan and I both loved how open and bright the house was and were psyched at the idea of a pool.
Plus, the size was perfect and it has a ginormous yard that’s ideal for Sadie.
We actually drove back by the house and around the neighborhood before driving home. We clocked the time it takes to get from the house to the gym and it’s right around 15 minutes. The grocery store is more like 10 minutes away (not 20, like we originally thought – thank goodness).
It is a little off the beaten path, but it’s not in the boonies and is seriously gorgeous. I would be so excited to live there!
We are now working with our realtor to see if the landlord will reduce the cost of rent or help out with lawn care and then we’ll go from there. Should that home work out, it still wouldn’t be available until mid-August, so we have Uhaul booked for tomorrow and will be moving all of our stuff into storage tomorrow at 10 a.m.
When we arrived home from Ocala, I was starving!
A package was waiting on our doorstop and when I opened it, dinner was staring back at me.
I received a box of Fiber One Honey Squares cereal as a sample through the General Mills Pssst! program (anyone can join!) and immediately poured myself a plastic cup full of cereal and topped it with almond milk. (All of our bowls are in boxes.)
Honestly, I think I ate half of the box. I kept filling and refilling my cup. I have a serious problem when it comes to portion control and cereal and ate and ate and ate. Ooph.
Sometimes cereal for dinner is just what the doctor ordered. It tasted delicious and I loved eating a cold meal on a hot night. Yum!
Back to packing. I will be so happy when this move is o-v-e-r! The packing up of things is the worst part. I actually think unpacking is kind of fun, so I’m glad I have something to look forward to in a couple of weeks!
