Gridley Changes

Well, we have had lots of fun recently. Back in the first part of June, we decided to put our condo up for sale and move into a real home. We were a little sluggish about it until our next door neighbors also put their home up for sale with a realtor. That's when we decided to take advantage of the exposure and put ours up for sale by owner. A week later, we had received 3 different offers and decided to accept one. It all happened much quicker than we had expected. We decided that we had better get out and look for a home. Stacey had heard that a friend of ours that used to be in our ward (it was split a while back) was interested in selling. She called her up and told her, "I want your house!" Just by talking to her on the phone, Stacey had fallen in love with the house. We went and looked at it, and long story short, we made an offer a few days later, and they accepted.

The next month was very crazy trying to work with both mortgage companies, trying to get all of the paperwork, appraisals, and inspections done by the deadlines, etc. We closed and moved in just last week. Needless to say, we are very glad that is over. The new house is only 1/2 mile away from our old one, so we didn't go very far. We did change wards, though, so we both got new callings. Stacey is the first counselor in the Young Women's presidency. I am a CTR 8 primary teacher. This Sunday is our first week in the new callings, so we'll see how it goes. Our new address is:
1504 West 1725 South
Woods Cross, UT 84087


We love our new home. We were really outgrowing our old home, so it's nice to have some growing room. The best part about moving is going through all of the "junk" and getting rid of what we don't really need.

Another bit of news: I also recently changed jobs at KSL. I moved from the IS dept. to the Engineering dept. The Chief Engineer for KSL wanted someone in the Engineering dept. that understood computers better, so I transferred over. It has been quite a ride so far. I have definitely been taken out of my comfort zone, but it is nice to be able to learn more on the audio and video side of things.

All in all, we are doing very well.
