The stress of moving...

I've been in direct contact with our landlord Nancy, and she has been fabulous. She is letting us move in soon, and I can't wait. Unfortunately, three of the people who is helping us move have canceled because they are brothers and they are going out of town together. So it looks like its back to Joe and I to move all of our belongings, which sucks because I can't lift like Joe does... I will try and do all I can, but sadly enough I have been the only one packing anything. I kinda want to hire some guys to come help.

So its finally happening. We are moving into our first house, and we couldn't be more excited. I have packed over 2/3rds of the apartment already and am just waiting to pick up more boxes so I can finish the rest. We were able to move some of our stuff into the garage of the house yesterday. It looks like its gonna be a long move but we will get it done and I can finally start making this rental home our home. For everyone who doesn't know the address will be the Rodriguez Family 4330 Matich Dr. Reno, NV, 89502.

Planning a Last Minute Birthday Party!

So ever since Joe told me that we were unable to take our family vacation this weekend, I have been racking my brains trying to figure out what to do for Joshua's 2nd Birthday. I spent all day Monday calling every place in town and pretty much everybody told me no availability. This made me really upset because we wanted to do something special for him. Finally about 4pm on Monday I had a revelation. I called one more place that I hadn't thought of... COCONUT BOWL. They not only had availability they had blacklight bowling and mini golf. I was so excited to finally find a place to hold Joshua's party. Saturday April 17th 2010 at 6pm. It should be a blast...

Our Vacation is Cancelled!

Joe just came home from drill weekend and told me that he has "drill stuff" to do this week. I asked him if this was going to affect our vacation this weekend and Joe just looked at me. He told me that we could go Friday night and come home Sunday morning. This is not a VACATION, its a waste of gas. So needless to say I was severely upset.

Meeting New People...

I had the chance yesterday to meet the nicest lady... Joe and I went to view a house in Donner Springs (Mira Loma and McCarran area) yesterday. I have to admit the house is older and it needed to be cleaned up a little bit, but this woman that I met yesterday is in her late 50's early 60's and she is all alone, managing property and taking care of her 5 dogs (wow) is what she does with her time. I felt bad when we walked in because yes, the house was older and yes, it really needed a new coat of paint inside. Overall the house was nice and there were little things that needed to be fixed here and there, but it was a house with a wood burning fireplace. We liked it, and started talking to the owner and we were very honest with her and she is willing to work with us... So I go back to the house at 11 am this morning to fill out the application and hopefully by next week we'll have a house...

The house hunt starts again...

Even though our last attempt fell through, we are still looking for a house to call home. I have managed to set up two appointments for houses tomorrow. One house is off of Kings Row and is a 4bedroom with a den, which would be nice, but it is only 1800 square feet so I have to wonder how big the bedrooms are... The next one is actually right around the corner from the house that turned us down. The lady says its a tri-level home, but you wouldn't really think that. It has four bedrooms and I believe 3 bathrooms, which would be super nice. She also said that Aiden would not be a problem, which is what we have been worried about. This lady seems like she really needs this place rented soon, and has said she is willing to work with us. So cross your fingers and toes. Here goes round two...

So Sad.... :(

So we didn't get the house that we were trying to get. So we are once again on the hunt... I have so far found a 4bdrm with a den off of Kings Row in Reno, a 5 bdrm 3 bath on Gyger Grade, and another 4 bdrm tri-level in Donner Springs so hopefully one of these becomes our new home!
