Praying HARD!

We've been going back and forth for months about trying to find a house for rent. We live in a 2nd floor apartment in a two story 4-plex in our hometown, and while the apartment itself is just right for what we need, it's hard living with loud, rude neighbors. We have neighbors beside us who play very loud rap music and have the bass turned all the way up and no matter how many times we ask it's a weekly, if not daily, occurance. We also have neighbors below us who have nightly arguments that are loud just below our bedroom. There are other circumstances with this apartment both with neighbors and the landlord/management company that I don't want to go into detail about, but we just don't feel as comfortable or safe here anymore! But at the same time we don't want to just move anywhere, it has to be the right home for Boogie, it needs to be safe, and it needs to have everything we need.

The other night I was looking on Craigslist and came across a house for rent just up the road from my parents house. We were driving around because Boogie had fallen asleep in the car and I was NOT about to interrupt a nap by getting her out of the car... so I had J drive up to the house so we could take a look. The rent is low so I was expecting a dumpy old trailer or a very worn down tiny house... I was wrong! It is the CUTEST little white house with black shutters, it has a huge yard and it looks perfect! To make a long story short, my dad is NOT shy and ended up talking to the person who lives there now (I actually went to high school with him) and he told us that it is a 3 bedroom and has a wood stove! I still have to make sure it has washer/dryer connections, but other than that it has our wish list.... which is the following: some type of air conditioning (yes), some type of heating other than oil or gas (yes), washer/dryer connections (not sure yet), at least 2 bedrooms (yes), a yard (yes), NOT AN APARTMENT (yes yes yes!).

The man who owns the house is in service, so he is stationed in Alaska right now, so we have to wait to hear from his aunt who is taking care of it at the moment. We are 90ish% sure we're going to get it! The only not so fun part is that we will have to buy our own appliances (fridge, stove... and hopefully a washer/dryer for some w/d connections)...but it's totally worth it. So please, please, PLEASE pray for us! I'm trying not to get excited but this really would be a wonderful place to continue to grow our family and to stay for a good long while until we can buy a house of our own. :)
