Well everyone, this will be brief but I just wanted to inform those of you who didn't know yet that IT'S OFFICIAL! Brent and I have applied for and SECURED an apartment in Louisville. We just got the call today that everything went through!!!
When Brent traveled there in early April he was able to look at only one apartment. He really liked that one and we had been waiting for the call. However, we recieved a call from a different place that the guys at the church had recommended to us. Blindly [except a brief online tour and floor plans] we decided to go for this one. It was a little bit more than the previous one we had wanted, however it had nearly 270 more square footage and washer and dryer hookups [which we were able to purchase from some missionary friends who are returning overseas, but had just bought the new set!] I talked to Kali, thinking she could lend me some apartment-living-expertise, and she said she would pay about 100 more a month to have a washer and dryer in their apartment!!! We decided it was a good deal and Brent took care of EVERYTHING... including the FOURTEEN page application! Everything just fell into place from there-- it even opens up the 13th of June [we are moving in on the 16th]! We are very excited to have a place to settle.
Also, I just wanted to say a big thanks to all of my family who came and threw a wonderful shower for me last weekend. We had so much fun and I was blown away by your gifts. It was great seeing everyone again and fellowshipping over A LOT of Chinese food. :)
That's all for now...more to come, I promise.
