We arrived in Arizona (Prescott Valley) on August 12th. It is so nice to be here but we are currently looking for a house. Actually we've narrowed it down to a couple that are out in the country. The problem is we are waiting for the final probate paperwork to be processed and signed off by a judge in Santa Barbara. Then we can make an offer on a house. We thought seriously about renting but we decided we want to buy instead. We are praying this happens soon.
In the mean time, we are staying at a nice hotel and buying groceries for meals at Dollar Tree and Walmart. This definitely helps keeps our spending on eating out down to a minimum.
