Surprise #1: Yesterday, we found out that we were being offered university housing in San Diego! We applied for housing months ago, but the waiting list was so long that we really were not counting on it.
The apartment we’ve been offered is a lovely two bedroom on campus, for about the same price (maybe even a little less) of a two bedroom in Milwaukee. This is a HUGE relief, since the tiny 1 bedroom apartments we were looking at were more than twice what we’re paying here, and we were actually kind of worried about having to take out loans to pay for living expenses until I found a good job.
This is a wonderful surprise. Our financial worries have been lifted, and we get a much bigger apartment!
Surprise #2: The lease begins July 1. That is 26 days from now, and an entire month earlier than we had planned. This is kind of a stressful surprise, but we’re very excited, and I know we’ll manage.
If you want some books, let us know.
I reminded Greg how happy he should be that I insisted we being our moving preparations well in advance, even though he insisted that it was much too early.
Have a great Saturday! I’m off to do some spice peddling.
