We have some great news! ... No, we're not pregnant, but we did sell our house in Lehi. This has been a topic of great concern for us and rest assured it was always in the forefront of our prayers. Just a few days ago, we received a call from an agent who was looking for a place for her step-daughter, who really liked the area, the problem was that they wanted to do a lease-option, meaning that basically they "rent-to-own" the house. We really felt like this was an answer to our prayers and a way to make our financial burden a little lighter. Of course, it would be nice to just sell it immediately, but the renter wants to be able to purchase it in about 6 months and now with some rent coming in, we'll be able to take care of both places for a while with more ease. And worst case scenario is that if they don't buy the house within the two year designated time period, we were at least able to rent it for that time and possibly sell it for more down the road.
And here, we'll throw in some pictures that of course you're all dying to see.
The Kitchen has made some good progress this week. We were able to put up all the sheet rock for the walls and ceiling. Bro. Gipson from our ward was teaching me (Morgan) "the apprentice" how to tape, mud , and sand so that our finished walls would look nice. Needless to say, I don't really care much for the mudding part. I'm not really very good at it. I basically put on the entire first application of the mudding. Luckily, Bro. Gipson was able to come over and really help with the finishing touches for the second application of mud. Taping is easy of course, and I didn't mind sanding at all. I'm just glad that my friend McKay (from Huntsman Cancer Hospital) gave me a perfect farewell gift to protect my head while playing in the mud and the sand. It's really come in handy...too bad the hat is being damaged in the process.
