Well I will say that I am glad to be back and into a normal routine. I did miss my little munchkins while I was away...but I was so glad there were not there to witness mom's total meltdown. So we went to see that old house, and from the pictures it looks great right.....WRONG. We walked in and I looked at Corey and he had this look on his face like he was going to literally kill me. So he went outside by himself to collect his thoughts before saying anything. I just kinda walked around the house dumbfounded with the landlord. The house had no normal closets. They were all the size of the Nauvoo ones if you have seen them. Just barely big enough to squeeze in sideways. Plus the floors were horrible. The pictures were not showing it's true form. So he takes me upstairs and the bathroom is a small closet. Then he steps into this little room that is as big as a walk in closet and I realize this is the 3rd bedroom. They could call it that because of the window. But a twin bed wouldn't even fit in there. I just looked at the guy and told him not only was my husband going to kill me but that I felt like I was going to throw up. So I went and found Corey and the guy was actually pretty cool about it. Of course we couldn't get our deposit back (1000 dollars lost), but he did let us out of the lease that we already signed. I was so relieved. But I was so mad at myself for doing that. I felt horrible. Thankfully Corey is so understanding and very supportive.
So we left and went to work calling and seeing places. We didn't stop for a second, not even for lunch. But on the second day we found a brand new duplex with a two car garage that was in our price range. So we got that instead. I love it.
So this trip was not what we planned for. Other things gone wrong. Our formula for Hailey exploded in our luggage and I spend about an hour cleaning that up when we got to the hotel. Plus Hailey got super sick on Friday and we had to travel with a sick crying baby. Plus she broke her first tooth as well. I was glad to get home let me tell you.
So hopefully now there will be no more major hiccups and we can move next week knowing that we have a decent place to live in. Sorry I took no pictures but I was not in the picture taking mood I guess you could say. Hopefully I will get back into better blogging once we get settled in Hagerstown.
