On May 18th, one week after the fire, our insurance company found a house for us, and we went to view it to see if it would be suitable for our needs for the next 4-6 months while our home is being rebuilt. Although it is not an attention grabber from the street, we were pleasantly surprised by the inside, and, partly because we were eager to get out of the hotel and back to a more normal existence, we quickly said “yes”.
We are trying hard to be good tenants and not destroy the place, but with 7 humans and 2 discombobulated dogs, it’s difficult. We must remain ever vigilant! We’re very thankful for our great insurance company (Go State Farm!!) and the blessing of a comfortable residence while we await the completion of our new-and-improved home.
