The lease on our current home ends at the end of August and our landlord has informed us that, as his family will need the house, he will not be renewing our lease. He has further informed us that, if it were possible, he'd appreciate it if we could be out of the house by the end of June because his family will be needing a place to stay in July. While we have ever legal right to be here until the end of August, it really doesn't matter much to me whether we move in June or August. So we have begun hunting for a new home to rent.
When I began de-cluttering for Lent, I knew it would be particularly helpful when we would need to move as we were not planning on living here more than another year. I did not, however, realize how soon it would be helpful and how soon I would need to begin packing.
We saw one house today that we could squeeze into if we needed to, but it would be far from ideal. We are only looking for a place for one year so I don't need to be happy with the house, but I don't want to be depressed about it either.
So, you will be getting updates throughout the summer about packing and moving with three small children in tow. We are scheduled to look at another house tomorrow. I'm hoping that one is more appropriate for us. St. Joseph, pray for us.
