Puppy, pool, and pics
Well, the dog is not a puppy, but I just had to do the illiteration thing! We've really enjoyed our time here house and pet sitting. The family dog is very sweet and easy going. The pool has been a major hit with the boys, and today Tim entered the fray which they all enjoyed playing water games together for about 4 hours!! Nicole and I are cautiously entering the world of couponing - and the only reason it is cautious is because we have so little room to store things. But since we're house sitting for 10 days here and then another 9 days at some other friends' house we thought we'd get our feet wet with the BOGO's and wyb's (when you buy) and manufacturer coupons on top of store coupons. It's been great to save $50 both last week and today! It's also been nice to be in Tampa as I still have many friends here and have been able to hook up wtih a few of them this week - only 5 - 10 minute drives as opposed to 45 minute drives!! We've been out looking at houses with our realtor back in the Brandon area both last week and again this past Tuesday. We've found a neighborhood we really like, but are still unsure if that's where we'll end up. One house in that neighborhood was a real heart stirrer as it had something for everyone (4 bedrooms, 3 baths, with a pool on a lake) but it is really out of our reach at this point. It has been on the market since November, so maybe they'll come down, but we're not thinking it would come down to our neck of the woods anyway so we're not feeling led to put an offer on it at this point. I'll be starting back to work next week part time, Monday-Friday 9am-12pm working for the family we had our camper parked at for a few months when we first came back. They're a great family, and I'm looking forward to the opportunity to be with them and hone my computer network skills again. We are still working with the local church that God opened the doors for and know we are here for now for a reason. Well, this was just going to be a quick update, so sorry this ended up being a book! Hope you enjoy the pics of the dog and the pool and game night tonight. God bless!
