Our new house

Well, for those of you who follow from afar, if there are any, you might not know that we are not in Russell pastoring anymore. After 4 years, the church didn't feel like they could afford to keep us there and we felt that it was time for us to move on. However, Jeff is still a year away from his nursing degree and that would be a wasted venture if we moved now so we decided to stay in the area. We started looking for a place to rent or buy and soon found that it might be cheaper to buy than to rent. We started looking for an agency that we might get a mortgage from and found USDA, or United States Department of Agriculture. They do what is called Rural Housing Service where they give low interest mortgages to those who might not be able to get them through a conventional banking agency. We found a cute little house in Massena and decided that we would go ahead and put an offer in. After what seemed like an eternity, we got all the paperwork done and had our closing. We've put some work into it and we're pretty pleased with how it looks. Hope you enjoy! Here are some pictures of the inside that we took and then some pictures of the outside that the realtors took for the MLS listing.

Our new house

The other day my husband recieved a phone call which he thought was very disturbing. The voice on the other end of the phone was wanting to know if we had sold our couch yet. He was like What?!?!! But, then he got to thinking and remembered....oh yeah that wife of mine has been putting all sorts of stuff up for sale on this new web site that just started. Yes, indeed I had put the big sectional couch up for sale! That evening, our couch was taken out of our house, and we were left standing (since there was no place to sit) with some green paper in our hands. So, the following day, we went furniture shopping. Here are some pictures of the new couch. :) It is a microfiber material and is very nice. Best of all, it is dark in color, which for anyone who is a parent, that right there says it all! :)
