Yay, we won't be homeless!

Travis gets to Seattle this weekend, and we only have two weeks left in the current place we have downtown. Well, two weeks that would be covered by my company, then we'd have to pay the exorbitant rent at Harbor Steps.

We've been waiting (not patiently) to hear from the bank on the house we're buying in Kent, but it doesn't look like it would be possible to close by October 27th. (Yes, that's in two weeks.) Thus, we needed to find another temporary living place that didn't cost $4500 a month. We've been doing a ton of research online, and let me tell you, it's hard to find a furnished place in Seattle that allows pets! We found some, but they were in the mid $3,000s per month, which is just more than we want to pay. We considered doing an extended stay hotel, but finally, something popped up in the University Village neighborhood.

I went and looked at the place today, and we FINALLY have our next temporary housing lined up. Yay!! It's really close to the bus line for me, and close to the freeway for Travis. Yay! To top it all off, it's actually pretty nice. :) I snapped the place up for at least November, and we'll see from there.

I have made it back home, and am making some homemade chicken noodle soup. Mmmm.

Good day!

Glad you found a place! Stupid bank for taking so long.

So happy to hear you got a place. I checked out the pics after we "talked" last night. Looks like a good place and I love all the character the building has.
