The place turned out to be just great.
It seems to be true that if you think your circumstances are bad now, just wait until later. This is undoubtedly coming through in our life at the moment! But we will go on with a grateful perspective each day. It undoubtedly did get about as bad as it could. But then thanks to short term housing, I have been able to gather my life about me plus start again. My lake house was recently burned to the ground. It was a complete plus utter loss. I guess all that matters is the fact that everyone is safe plus nobody was hurt or harmed in the fire. Still, we are left with just about nothing. Looking for apartments to rent near us wasn’t easy and we certainly couldn’t just live in a hotel indefinitely. The place I work was nice enough to let us use the corporate housing for a week. But of course, we knew that we would have to get more settled in order to get on with our lives again. I was in need of some affordable housing that I didn’t have to sign a whole year’s lease for. A good friend found us some good month to month rental options close to where our old lake house was. This allowed the kids much easier access to go to their school. Plus, it was good to be back in a proper environment. The place turned out to be just great. It had bedrooms for the kids and for my wife and I. Though it was a bit cramped, it still felt as if we had a new home if only temporarily. Short term housing allowed us to feel as if we were picking up the pieces again.
