It seems to be like it’s always true that if you think it’s bad now, just wait until later.
This is happening for us in our lives right now.
But we will all move forward with a grateful perspective each and every day of our lives. It really did get about as bad as it can get for us but thanks to short term housing, I have had the opportunity to gather our lives around us and get started again. My beach cabin was recently burned to the ground, and so it was a complete and utter loss. All that genuinely matters is the fact that my family was safe and nobody was hurt or harmed. Still, we are left with just about nothing. We have been looking for apartments to rent near us but it has not really gone all that well. But, we undoubtedly could not just live in a hotel indefinitely. The car dealer I work for let our family use the corporate housing for a week. But we knew that we had to get more settled in so that we could get on with our lives. I was in need of some affordable housing where I didn’t have to sign a year’s lease. A superb friend found us some great month to month rentals near where our old beach cabin was. It was good because it allowed the kids much easier access to their school. Plus, it was really nice to be back in a real house. It turned out to be just great, and it had bedrooms for the kids and for my wife and I. It was a little bit cramped, but it still felt like home even though it was only temporarily. Short term housing allowed us to feel as if we could start picking up the pieces again.
