Crazy Week

Last Saturday, we found out we have to move.

To MOVE. We have only been here since June!

And you all know how much FUN moving is!

Our landlord got a new job in Texas. As part of his job offer, the company will help him sell the house we live in. It's too good of a deal for him to pass up. He has been very, very nice to us in trying to make it as easy on us as possible, with Luke coming and all.

But, the bottom line is, sooner or later, within the next 6 months or so, we have to move.

So we're picking sooner.

First, there's that whole college town thing -- that if we waited to move until, say, December, there would be few options to move into. (But alas, because of the college town thing our options are a little limited at this point in the semester -- as renting season really starts to come into full swing in January or so.)

Second, there's the whole baby thing. The thought of getting all of Luke's stuff set up and then having to take it down and move it just seems a little daunting.

On Saturday, we heard the news. As of today we have seen 12 properties. They ranged from the house inhabited by 3 college boys and two pit bulls (it was probably worse than you can imagine) to the pricey condos that asked for a pet deposit of more than $1,000.

Today, I think we found a place. We'll have to turn in an application on Monday, but we're hoping it works out for us. If it does work out for us, we'll have a place that's a little smaller, but definitely cheaper, and still large enough (we hope) for us. I will give more details when it's a done deal. And if this particular place isn't a done deal, there are one or two more options that could work for us, too.

What a WEEK. It has been crazy. I'm exhausted.

And we haven't even started packing yet.

Oh my goodness! Best of luck to you. :0

Speaking of that college town, we drove through today, on the way home from a visit to Rose-Hulman.
