finDing a hOme!
This Summer we are moving to D.C. This has caused a little bit of stress in the sense of finding a home in our price range. We have now been looking for a home to rent, which is difficult because we are just finding out that most homes rent through word of mouth or signs in the yard. For 3 months we have been looking online or in the paper. Being out of state makes it difficult for us to find anything. My husband, the eternal optimist, keeps saying something will work out, something will come up. We have placed ads in three neighborhood papers and have our new chruch members on the hunt as well. This past week i am starting to panic thinking we only have three months to find a place. I don't want to feel desperate and have to settle at the last minute. So as we are going to bed last night right when I am telling Jeff one of us should fly there next weekend, the phone rings, we got a call from someone Jeff will be working with at Walter Reed. Truly an answer to prayers.
He knows someone in area who has a large home that they are willing to rent for us for the entire 4 years. The home owner and his wife still live there but it is on a large lot with a seperate enterance, it's own kitchen, 4 bedroooms for us and great living space. Jeffs friend said they seem to be nice and they are never there, because they travel so much for work. It is actually not in the area we were hoping to live in but this is much closer to Jeff's work and the communte will be better. They emailed us photos of the home last night and so it is a done deal. We are thrilled. I put them on our smugmug page so take a look!
