Andrea asked us what one word summed up our hopes for 2010; I was torn between potential and growth. Some little spark in me knew that 2010 was to be a year of massive changes and this has already been proven in the five days of the new year. For reasons beyond our control, we're not able to stay on in SB's flat so the decision was made two days ago to look for another place we can rent for the time being. Which means we will both be paying rent there. Ergo officially living together!
This could definitely have come at a better time for us. I'm still in the process of gaining a teaching position and we're not going to be a dual-income couple until February. We have only been dating ten months and it's a big commitment to be moving in together. We may be getting a boarder in but it's not confirmed. We only like one house that has been advertised and we know we aren't the only ones who have scheduled a viewing.
Still, God has clearly opened a door and is applying a rather big foot to our rears, pushing us through. I think that our relationship is strong enough to handle this interesting time and that this move will work out to have an even more positive effect on our relationship. Fingers crossed for us Thursday afternoon (so that's around 11am for Perth girls, 3am in London and 1am in Asuncion, Paraguay LOL). Embrace the positive changes, Scribblettes!
