  • Home Pixies needed, please!

    As I wrote before, DD Lauren just got married, she's pregnant (almost 14 weeks), and they're looking for a house near base (Norfolk, VA). There are a few areas they are not willing to live (safety of DD and the baby are the reasons SiL gave me), and SiL is willing to commute up to an hour each way to find the best place. They're hoping to be moved by no later than mid-June. Finding a house that can accommodate the 3 adults and a not-quite-born baby isn't hard. What's hard is find one to also accommodate the 2 50lb dogs they have. They've been denied for a couple of houses they found because of the dogs (neither is an 'aggressive' breed, they're just considered 'Large' - which I find hilarious because our dogs are MUCH bigger).
    Pixies that they get approved for the latest one they found that they all 3 like and is in their budget!! Hopefully, DD will receive word and SiL will come home in a month to things already in gear (the house isn't available until May or June, but whatever we have to do, we'll cope)

    **I just realized I didn't clarify something - their very good friend (the one who introduced them to each other) - is moving with them. One of the dogs is his, and the other is DD and SiL's.**

    Update - not that house.

      Sending loads of pixies to your DD and SiL that the right house comes along fast. Fingers crossed that their fur babies will be loved and accepted soon.

        Hoping that all 3 find the house and they get approved- even with the 2 "big" dogs. All works out too! Knock on wood and cross my fingers too...

            Sending tons of pixies that everything will work out.
            That might sound boring, but I think the boring stuff is the stuff I remember the most.

                  Thanks for all the pixies. They didn't get the house they wanted - they got a BETTER ONE!! The owners are military and are offering a discount for military and for 1st responders - SiL is in the Navy, the friend is an EMT, and DD is an EMT. The house is nicer, closer to the base, and has a bigger yard (the dogs are energetic). There's even a fire pit!
                  And it's available sooner - as in 2 weeks from this weekend. I'd like Lauren to stay here and wait, but she wants to be moved before her DH gets back from being at sea next month.
                  Anyway - thanks! Sometimes things don't turn out how you expect them to, but they are better.

                        Wonderful news!! I thoroughly understand why your DD wants to get there and get settled. She's setting up her first home with her husband and she wants to get started. It's exciting and it will give her something to do to occupy herself while he is gone.

                            I do too! I'm having an issue with the idea that she's leaving, though. This is it - after this month, DH and I will be 'empty nesters'. Oh well, we'll set up her room as a guest room, complete with crib!

                              Sometimes those apron strings are hard to stretch. I feel your pain, but know you will handle it fine.
