We gave notice in August that we where moving in October.
And we never secured a place! I'm not entirely sure why. Some places just plain sucked. Some places got rented before I got the application to them (the next day!). One place the application went to a corporate office. I believe because J's pay stubs vary because his is casual they got freaked out. (that one had a money order and our rent was tied up for almost 2 weeks!) Sometimes I think it was because I'm visibly pregnant. No one ever said anything, but you get the eyeball.
So on top of packing, I was freaking out. I didn't want to be homeless!
Luckily we have amazing friends who took us in last minute. They actually saved our butts twice. The Movers said there was no way that all our stuff would fit into storage. Luckily L+L have a garage and basement. It wasn't a huge amount. Our bed/bookshelves and a handful of boxes. That also meant We got to have our own bed. Pure bliss. It wasn't moved upstairs right away, so we where sleeping on a futon. A double. Now, J and I have a smooshy king sized bed. We where miserable. So I whined a bunch on facebook and a couple friends, and L+L moved the bed for us.
Thank goodness for friends.
We also got an i-phone from a friend, so we have at least a way to communicate.
I'm feeling a lot more relaxed now. And creative.
Here are a few photos I took with the 'new' phone today:
