The Move & The Clean

We are out of our old house!! WOO HOO! Finished cleaning yesterday but the big inspection is Thursday. We are really praying everything is up to par. This is the only picture I have available right now....

Jeremy was a trooper and climbed up a ladder to clean the windows. 

We moved into our new house and it's starting to feel like home. I'm hoping to finishing most of the unpacking tonight and tomorrow night. We went from living in a 5 year old house to a 60 year old house so it's been a bit of a "culture" shock. I am so grateful for the new place and love the location. Falling asleep to the sound of the ocean isn't too bad either :) 

There are a few issues with the house that we have requested maintenance for. The owners don't seem to want to put much into then house (understandably so, it's old and will probably get knocked down one day). Pray that they would give us favour!

Hope you're having a great week! Less than 3 weeks until we are heading to the USA!

The Beach Shack

We got the keys to our "new" house. And wow it was in even worse condition than what I remembered. We didn't notice a lot of the little things with all the previous owners stuff everywhere. My biggest concern was the pink bathroom. That's now at the bottom of my list. Jeremy has graciously agreed to do some painting in the the rooms that were in bad condition. One room half done and I can already tell it's going to be just fine!

Windows not opening and broken screens are really my only concern. We are hoping and praying the owners will be kind and fix these. With no air conditioning in the summer and a new baby on the way, these two things are high on my priority list. Wow I'm really sounding high maintenance now!

We had a good laugh as we were leaving the house today..... the owners had the front porched fixed and repainted. We thought it looked nice but noticed that it must not have been the correct paint as it showed EVERY foot print. We put the bad paint job behind us and just thought oh well! Until it was raining today.... apparently it was definitely NOT outdoor paint.... every move we made brought up the paint. and showed the white paint underneath. We laughed knowing that this is just the start of what we are going to find. Now we are just hoping they'll come back and fix it!

Pictures to come shortly!! Right now there isn't much to show... they weren't kidding when they called it a "beach shack".
