Yesterday we were on the move again! Yes, we moved into a new apartment. So, a couple weeks ago we found out that the lady we were renting from had not paid the rent and was at risk for eviction if she didn’t pay by whatever specified day. Well, of course she had an explanation for that and it was taken care of. Then, the cable went out for the past 2 days. We attributed it to the recent storms and then the electricity went out yesterday. It was only our electricity and not anyone else in the building. For us, that was the last straw. Too many things seemed off and the lady had no excuse not to be paying her bills since we pay her directly. We weren’t going to stay at a place where these things keep happening. It was a nice place, but too many red flags. I picked up David from work ASAP and we immediately started packing. I don’t know how my husband is so brilliant, but he managed to find us a nice, furnished apartment in a super short period of time. For a brief moment I did feel a little homeless, but luckily David is the man and made things happen quickly. He is good at that. Wish he would teach me his skills. Ha!
Our new apartment is located in Sandy Springs, GA. The management here seems top notch. It is a little farther out from the city which I like. Less traffic. Yay! It’s also only a couple minutes from the MARTA station for David. Awesome! Fantastic location with stores and restaurants all within walking distance. Although we were both stressed and panicked about having to move our things yet again, I believe that everything happens for a reason and ultimately we will be happier and more comfortable here. It also gives us yet another area of the city to experience to figure out where we want to live permanently.
Barely oriented to my surroundings, I managed to get to my interview in one piece this morning and it went GREAT! Sometimes all you can do is pray and hope for the best. This experience is really testing me and teaching me to be a more flexible and relaxed person. Even though things feel chaotic right now (well, they did yesterday), I am still able to have a sense of peace and calm. No doubt it’s because I have had time off to de-stress and collect myself, but I have really been focusing on taking good care of myself by exercising and eating well. Natalie introduced me to Chalene Johnson‘s podcast, something new that I hadn’t tried before and I LOVE HER! She is so inspirational. Thanks, Nat!
Here are some pics of where we will be staying for the next few months.

After awhile, he was OVER IT, just like his mom. We were exhausted.
