General Thoughts

Well it's hard to believe, but we're already in week two of 2008. A new year brings new opportunities, and we're so looking forward to them! Last Wednesday we found out that our landlord is putting our house up for sale. While not a complete surprise (it's a very old house that has not seen it's share of required structural maintenance -- and is now making up for lost time), it's still a bit of a shock. We were offered the first opportunity to purchase the property; however, in light of the many maintenance issues pending, declined the offer. Because there are two units on this property, it's listed as investment property so, according to the realtor, in all likelihood, we'll be able to stay on as tenants in the home we currently occupy. That's good news! And, while we do plan to stay on for a while (about a year and a half, God willing), we will be squirreling away as much money as possible to take the plunge -- buy a house of our own!

With these changes on the horizon, we are looking forward to a year filled with creative opportunities to save money and enrich our lives. God is good and I know He will be with us every step of the way guiding us on our journey. Your good wishes and prayers for our journey are greatly appreciated! We're keeping our eyes on the prize...
