OUR PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED. After an hour of small talk (and watching a rodent run around an apartment in a hamster ball) we finalized the reservation of an apartment in April (see picture below).
It's a cozy two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment. If we're lucky, we'll even get to keep the hamster! In actuality, the tenants who are currently living there were gracious enough to offer us some furniture (nothing is for sure, but it looks like they won't be taking much of it with them). We're very excited about it (see picture below).
We really feel like we've had our prayers answered and have still been blessed with much, much more. Over the past month it's been a real struggle to find an apartment for only 4 months over the summer, and not only did we find one, but it may even come with a couch, entertainment center, coffee table, bookshelf, dining set, and bed! For FREE!! Again though, none of that is for sure, but we still feel like we have been very fortunate to gain so much in such a short amount of time. The only thing that could have made this week better was the Colts winning the Superbowl. We take what we can get though.
