DP#1 (08/05/2013)

we were given a proposition last year. tssc purchased a few houses in BJ and wanted us to take care of one, that's his words for - move in before i rent it out. with him, you never know if he's serious and if he means it and if we should pursue it. we were lost of what to do but he kept badgering us to move in. how can we, honestly. we can't even take care of our current premise and now that i'm no longer working, how can we maintain 2 houses. so we did what we do best, dodge the question.

then after a year of being pressured (seriously, its a pressure to move!) we were finally presented with an option, which we gratefully took. so the planning began. it was intense and terrifying and made us feel like we could not breathe most of the time. 9 years ago, it was only the 2 of us. we could take our own sweet time and were very relaxed and excited. now there's 6. we had to plan the timeline properly, so that the boys are not disrupted, so that they don't know, so that they dont get excited and start pressure us!

for about a month we did the ground work. i looked for help and hubby met them. i dont like meeting people and have an almost-zero patience level so hubby was the one who went back and forth discussing what we wanted with them. i just set up the appointments. we decided after meeting about 4 and after many, many lengthy discussions.

although the person above is doing majority of the work, there is another who is doing some work too. he was introduced by the person who will be doing the kitchen, so he'll settle the kitchen with his introducer. i wasn't too comfortable with that decision but oh well.

despite the pressure we faced for a year, alhamdulillah for this opportunity. for this learning experience. for this project. for all of this. alhamdulillah ya rabb. i feel so small when i think about this. it was a dream i prayed for, for over a year, and its here, syukur alhamdulillah.

all praise and thanks is to Allah, (the) Creator, Owner, Sustainer of the Worlds
segala puji bagi Allah, Tuhan semesta alam
