We have a house!

Yippee! ! !

Now we need to figure out how to get our stuff.  I have to make a few phone calls today.  The email I have doesn't work and my cell phone is dead.

Now about the house.  It is a cute little country cottage.   Little is the key word there but we will fit.    Space is premium.  It has a large yard, dog pen and a detached garage.  Only one bathroom though.  I may have to put a porta-potty in the laundry room for emergencies.     I am looking forward to moving in.

Privacy!  The house may not provide much but the garage will.  WEG.

The rent was more than what we wanted to pay.  I just hope we can make it.  Houses in the city run $100-200 but with 3 asthmatics in the house, I thought that was a very bad idea.  The smog is bad, even without inversion conditions we had in the mountains.

I am worried about money but relieved too.  Please keep the prayers coming as we adjust to civilian life.  Dragons PTSD is bad right now.  Military life may be behind us but the scars of war will never go away.

  1. The military is providing some kind of support for him, isn't it. If not, get on the horn to your congress person and start raising cain.

    So glad you were able to find a house. Best of luck in it.

  2. Sorry, just had a thought. If there is a local VFW try contacting them to see if some of the veterans could lend a hand with the move.

    1. It will take time to get this stuff going. Our government works at a snails pace.

    1. What makes it harder is that people don't understand how much of a change this is for Dragon. No one is telling him what to wear, what to say or how to act. He is so lost right now. Thank you for the prayers. I hope that having a house will help some.
