So what else is new?? Not much really. Cooler weather, fall leaves changing.
Thanksgiving this week and the neighbor across the street put his Christmas lights up 2 weeks ago. Then the neighbor next to him put some lights up this weekend. Made me think (for half a second and a quick look in the store) if we wanted to put up lights. I subsequently changed my mind and said "nope, not happening."
Hard to believe but our lease expires December 14th. Can it be a year since it all transpired to move here?? (We actually moved December 31st but had to rent it as of December 15th as they wouldn't hold it any longer than 5 days; not that I think there was a demand for it to be rented, but we played along with their "rules").
Our plan was to definitely move by the end of the lease and not renew it, but then the plans we made like I said above are taking slower to come together. So with trepidation, when asked if we wanted to renew our lease for a year, we said "can we go month to month??" Prescott property management companies have terrible reputations. They'll find anything and everything to withhold people's deposits, so we really didn't think they would be willing to work with us.
Imagine our surprise when the property manager said they would check with the owner and imagine our double surprise when the owner was willing to go month to month with just the slightest (really very small) monthly increase.
We hope to be moved by February, but I'm glad we can stay put here until we are ready.
The plan is good. It will work. We'll just have to be patient.
It will come together.
Meanwhile we wait.
And we are thankful. Thankful for so much. A year ago at the beginning of November if you told me a year later I would be living in Arizona, would be a mother in law, would soon be a grandmother, I would have laughed and said "quit joking." But that's how God works. Catches us sometimes when we least expect it.
And that will be how it will be when the plan all comes together.
When we least expect it.
And it will be good.
Because God never disappoints and never will.
In the meantime
May be it be a good one for you and yours :)
