Just wanted to update you all about our North Carolina trip. We went this past weekend to take care of some business and to see the house that we are renting. I am happy to report that we like it overall. The bedrooms are a little small but they will do. The house has a lot more storage space than our current house which is great because my husband and I have a lot of stuff. The yard is huge and I think the dogs will love it. I like the quiet neighborhood.
Some things that we do not like but hopefully will be fixed by the time we get there include the house needing to be painted. It was built in 1999 which is older than our house but that doesn't bother me. It just needs to be painted. The owners say they will paint, pressure wash the outside of the house and driveway, and work on the landscaping before we move in. I hope they stick to their word because these are the main things that I don't particularly like right now.
I know that we are just renting and we will only live in it for 2 years but I like a well kept home (inside and out). My husband and I joke that we will probably take better care of it than the owners. I'll definitely make sure the inside stays immaculate and my husband will take care of the yard work.
It was good seeing the house. In my true
OCD planning/organizing self I've been typing up a word document about how I want each room set up (the color scheme included). OK, don't judge me. LOL. There's a reason for that. Once we move, I will only have about 1 week to decorate the house before starting work. I have to make sure that the majority of the house is set up or else it wont get done once I start working.

Anyway we like it and we look forward to making it our home for the next 2 years.
