On a personal note ...
We have been living in a rental since we moved to Texas and we have started looking for a house.  We found a really good deal on one and may be making an offer this week.  We would appreciate you prayers.  It's scarry buying a re-sale house, since you don't know if there are some hidden issue with it.
We are so READY to get out of this rental though.  1400sq ft with my adult son, 2 dogs and 2 cats has started feeling like a cracker box.  And my sweet daughter has been sleeping on the couch when she comes to visit.  2100sq ft would feel like a mansion!

I will be back on Wednesday and Friday with some Valentine projects!
See ya then!
Melisa
