Since Alicia has gotten a new position at Peppercom -a PR firm that makes sure Whirlpool remains the best company in the world, we have the privilege to find a rental property for the near future. In the next week we will be touring the West side of Michigan and three cities keep coming up as potential areas for our relocation – Stevensville, St. Joseph or Berrian Springs.
The only thing that I know about any of them is that Berrian Springs is the headquarters of Andrews University. It is a Seventh-Day Adventist school and I do agree with some of their beliefs but have a tough time with others (Ellen White, constant reminding of the 4th commandment – it seems like law trumps grace), If the price is right – who cares?
To me what I would look for in a new location would be at least the following:
- Two bathrooms – I have a certain family member that takes at least one hour per day to get ready
- Three bedrooms – One for Alicia and I, one for the kids and another one for me if I get kicked out of the first one.
- Good neighborhood – I believe each one is a relatively good area to raise a family.
If we get more than that I would be happy…Does anybody have suggestions?
