Create Your Happily Ever After

Accepting Donations…

This is our life. We thought we were heading to Arizona this summer for a job. Jeff was super excited about it and the job was really exciting to him. He was 98% sure he had it because the company kept telling him how excited they were to get him down there, how important he was to them, etc. But…something happened…we don’t actually know what. They kinda just stopped communicating with us. We have had pretty regular updates from them during the last 3 months, but after hearing nothing from them in the past 5 weeks (despite Jeff’s efforts to contact them), we are giving up on the Arizona sun. So…now I am waiting for a job to open up in Canyons District so I can get back into teaching and spending all my spare time (which is a lot) searching for a place to call home. It’s not that awesome. Exciting to finally have something to move towards, but still not awesome (house hunting blows). Jeff has an interest in real estate and would like to find a house with a mother in law basement apartment…or the potential to build one. This way we can pay off a mortgage faster or have a little buffer if things get shaky. This has proven to be a real challenge, considering the Salt Lake/Sandy/Cottonwood Heights area and our price range (not to mention my vanity in only looking at houses that are non-trashy). So…we are currently accepting your generous donations of $10,000 or more. :) We accept cash, checks, and account transfers, but no major credit cards.

    Good luck!! Make sure you write a list of what you want in the house and stick to it! You’ll be there long enough you don’t want to have regrets. That’s some advice I wish someone had told me.

  • Good luck with that! House hunting really isn’t very fun. :(
