Woo-Hoo

We got a house on base! Praise the Lord!!!! I am soooooo relieved. We were told when we signed up for housing (only a week ago today) that there was a 6-8 month wait and we only rated a 2 bedroom because it's just us and Boo-Boo. Well, today housing called and offered us a 3 bedroom, single house. How great is that?? Especially since we have only seen 2 other single houses on the entire base. Basically all the housing here is duplexes. I am so excited. We just got back from looking at it. It's still a little small, but much bigger than what we had. The inspector also gave us permission to basically do anything we wanted to it, because it will be torn down after we move out. Yeah! I can paint!! Also, we have a huge yard and we can get fencing for free from self-help on base. I am so thankful this worked out. The guy said we could move in as soon as we get back from leave next week. Yeah!!

P.S.- Now that I have a spare bedroom I will be expecting lots of company!
