Done and done.

Some very big progress was made on the housing front today. We accepted a rental application from a nice couple AND our rental application was accepted for the house we want in Florida. So. flipping. happy. It's so nice to finally where we will live for the next year or so. And we LOVE the house we found down there. It's beautiful and in a perfect location. Well, it's beautiful in the pictures I've seen anyways. And I trust Brian's judgement (well kinda ... I trust the pictures more!).

The only snag in our plan is that the house isn't available until February 1. We'll rent a storage place for a month and Brian got the OK from his boss for us to stay in the company-owned house where he is currently staying. The issue is that they may have an intern living there for the month of January as well. If it were just Brian and I, we wouldn't mind. But having a baby and living with a stranger feels odd to me. But we're not even sure if the intern will be there yet. So we've decided to just see how it goes and figure out it out as it comes. I've had to give up a lot of my control issues throughout this process, which I think has probably been good for me.

The process of finding renters was a bit odd. The fact that we've put so much blood, sweat, and tears, not to mention money, into this house makes it important to us to find someone that's the perfect fit. We're not renting it for extra income, we're renting it because we have to. So we don't want just anyone living here. I think the problem is that it's hard to imagine someone other than ourselves living here. But our renters are great people and very excited to live here. I'm confident that it will work out well.
