As some of you know, the Ripsam family has been apartment hunting. It's been one ulgly rejection after another. Last week we got approved for a two bedroom apartment in Ostego Michigan. It's a pretty little apartment with new floors they put in this week, they put in a new stove and a new fridge and it has a air conditioner. My husband job hunt took a while almost 6 months before he got a job and almost a year before he got two jobs. He's working part time one job is for a marketing company where he's a HP product rep and another job where he's a resident IT support to help in residents in a retirement community then we have my daughters ssi. So we finally made our income to where it needed to be so we could afford a twobedroom apartment. Of course we gave up the bigger bedroom for the kids to keep their things in as they out number us. We sign the lease on Monday and get to move in on Tuesday. We have a friend who can help us move things into the apartment on Tuesday. There is a flight of stairs going into the apartment as it's on the second floor. I'll have to deal with being online on cell phone for a few more days but by next two weeks we should be all set up. Bella is staying in her school until the end of the year. The bus is going to drop her off and Adam is going to pick her up.
I'm getting very excited. We have had a very rough year last year and this year just seems to be on the right track. This is our first place that we live on our own together in the 8 years we been together. I feel like it may just be the new fresh start our marriage needs.
