Big news this week in the Miles Rausch Family.

  1. House We’re moving. We’ll still be in Sioux Falls, though our zip code is changing. We’ll be tons closer to Miles’s work and many other places we frequent. Though we love the east side of Sioux Falls, we find ourselves traveling to the other side for food, shopping, entertainment, etc quite often. We weren’t looking to leave this side of town, just the right place happened upon us at the right time and it happens to be more centralized in town. We’ll be renting this house. It’s bigger in square footage, not TONS, but much more storage space which will make the living areas much more liveable. For instance, instead of a storage room with a bed in it (like our guest bedroom pretty much is now) we will have a guest bedroom. And the crap will go elsewhere. It’s two bedrooms, one bath, a sitting/living/dining room, (all wood floor, or maybe laminate, I’ve only seen it once and I didn’t pay attention to that), kitchen, and pantry on the first floor. And a large finished family room with fireplace and unfinished laundry/storage in the basement. We’ll have a garage and a yard. We’ll have a backyard for the first time in our lives. Well, besides when we lived with our parents. All the appliances will stay, including laundry and dishwasher. It’s a very nice home (with LOTS of windows) and we’re renting from someone we know and trust. We’ll send out our new address before we move to those who would want it, but we won’t be moving until the end of June or beginning of July. Pictures of inside to come eventually.
  2. My job with the City was supposed to end May 29. My supervisor talked to me on Monday and said there’s room in the budget to extend it for another month! While it may feel like it’s just delaying the inevitable, I’m thankful for more time to work at a place I enjoy, within my field, and of course, for the extra paychecks. This will prove to be helpful with any moving costs we’ll have in June and the little things we might need to purchase. (Like drapes for all the windows!)
  3. I also have good news on the job front for part-time during the next month and beyond that I don’t want to talk about too much publicly, as details haven’t quite been worked out yet. But it’s exciting and what I consider to be a big opportunity for both parties involved. Stay tuned, loyal MRF readers.
  4. Miles moved from his cubicle into a vacant office at work and we need to do some thinking on how to decorate it. This week, he also had good news at work that will make life a little easier, and all of this seems to have come with perfect timing.

God is good.
