moving status up-date

on 27 march 2010 i posted that we were moving.  the day we signed papers, the new owners told us that we could stay through the summer as they are snow birds and wouldn't be back until the fall. we decided to go month to month in hopes that we would find a place we liked and move. i had the kitchen already packed and our walls and windows decor have been boxed since the day we signed.  no curtains, no family pictures, no toaster, no crock-pot, no winter clothing. no nothing.

as fall approached we found the rental prices dropping. we choose to wait and see how far they would drop after school was in session. sure enough, the prices were right. two months ago i spoke to the canadians (new owners) and they said they wouldn't be down until late nov. so, we stayed.
  
two weeks ago i spoke to the canadians again. the harvest was late due to rain (they are farmers) and they can't make it down until jan. so, we can stay.
yesterday i got a message. the mother of the canadians is ill. the canadians won't be coming until jan 2012. we can stay for another year.  do we stay? do we move? do i un-pack? do i keep it packed and hope to find a deal closer to town?  i am so indecisive i am going crazy with the options...

you'll save on rent, have a bigger place, save on gas, and live closer to your bestie.

move already! screw the canadians!

well, i'd only want to move once, so if you can find a place right now (or in the near future) that you want to be in for a long while, then i'd move. if not I'd stay until i found something i liked.

that is hard, i want our next move to be mostly permanent.

Change is always good. Your stuff is already in boxes. Pray about a new place and keep looking until you find something you like. Your close to us now so I'd be sad if it was too far. But that's why we have cars.

Crazy Cait is right ;) I'd pray about it and just keep an open eye. It seems like when something is right, you just KNOW. So, I'd stay put until you fall inlove with another place. I know it sucks to live out of boxes, but it's worse to be stuck in a lease agreement because you rushed into a house that you weren't crazy about ;) Good luck sweetie. We'll let you know if we see anything!!

I vote STAY! If everyone I like moves away, who am I going to go to loud piano bars with?!

They are right. Pray about it and move into a home closer to town --only if you love it and want to stay awhile.

You need to just stay here forever and ever :)
