The Big Move


After 6 months of the contractors from hell destroying my mobile home we’re moving (small claims court in the future?).  Luckily we found an amazing non-profit that renovates homes and sells them to low to moderate-income families.  I’m quite excited and hoping for many positive things in the future.  My mobile home has been sold at a huge loss and I’m waiting to close on my home in 25 days.  Just 25 days until we will live just 4 miles from work, a short ride to trails, and not too far from herding lessons.

Our new Des Moines home has 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 864 sq. feet of living space, a full basement, 2 car garage, and is on a 0.28 acre lot.  I’ll be fencing the yard for the pups in the spring.  In the meantime we’re packing and dreaming of a safer home.  Hopefully we’ll be home for Christmas.
