March Madness

And it's not about the basketball.

This month seemed easygoing when it started-- a weekend out of town with my family, a few weekends at home getting some things checked off the list, work, church, friends, celebrating Easter.

A couple weeks ago I made plans to spend a weekend visiting Nicki.  I haven't been able to make it down since they moved back to Texas.  I am so excited to get away and spend time with her.  A girls weekend is much needed right now.

David's March started out crazy with a project due for his Masters Class, but he knew he just had to make it through that and then he'd have a breather.  Except the next day he found out he has to go out of town for a week for work later this month.  And March got a little crazier.

We had blocked off this past weekend to start looking at apartments since we were planning for David to move in in May.  We had 3 places picked out to look.  We loved the second complex we went to and they had a 1 bedroom that seemed like a decent option.  But we went on our way and ended up visiting a total of 7 complexes on Saturday.  When we go to the 7th, we started talking through it and really liked the second place and knew if we made it back before 5:00 they were waving the deposit.  So we headed back and on our way over I was looking at their website and saw they had a 2 bedroom (technically 1 bedroom and a den) that seemed to be in our price range--so we figured why not ask about it.  They had one available for us to see and I fell in love with it... it's a great layout, good sized kitchen (which was my big thing), extra bedroom and it was the same price as the 1 bedroom we had looked at that morning.

Then came the news... they had 1 available, but it was available for immediate move-in.  Since David and I are both in leases that presents a problem.  The office was about to close, so we headed back to his house to talk everything through.  We just kept coming back to the fact that it was just what we were looking for and hard to pass up.  To spare all the rest of the details, by Sunday afternoon arrangements had been made for one of our friends to take David's spot in his current house starting April 1.  

So we went yesterday morning and will officially have keys to the apartment next Monday!

And a crazy March just got crazier.  But I am so grateful for the Lord's provision in working out the details for timing of it all.  And I am excited to start getting things set up... I can't wait to move in in July!
