A friend of J’s went out of town so we offered to look after his place and his cat. I loved that cat. She was so affectionate and playful. I loved going over to love on her. We took our dog and they got along well. The cat lives with a dog anyway. They played together a couple of times but mostly the kitty stayed on her tower.
However, on the way to the place J’s jeep window was popped by a rock and got a crack about 8 inches long. J was ridiculously stressed about it. He ended up having to replace the whole windshield. The Jeep is all good now.
Some good news: we received an offer on the house. It was less than what we were asking for so of course we countered. It would be amazing if they took our counter.
The other day, I was driving home from grocery shopping. As I pulled into our spot J is on the porch with Noodle. I park and before I can even turn the car off J says, “Hey leave the car running. Do you want to be spontaneous with me?” Of course I say yes. So he takes the wheel, I scoot over and Noodle gets in the back. J drives us a few miles down the road, and we end up back on our same road actually. We pull to a gray duplex. It’s for rent, but being remodeled right now. The guy working on the place steps out and says hi to us. He asks if we want to look around and of course we do. The place is tiny. It’s a 750 sq foot 2 bedroom one bath place. Concrete floors throughout and new..everything basically. The thing is, it is quaint as hell. I loved it. The guy wants to put a fire pit in the backyard, and he said we could even set up a garden if we wanted to.. Some raised beds or even just ground level. I think we would really enjoy living there. It’s still downtown where we like, and the rent is cheap enough. The guy is even going to live in the other unit. So we would be neighbors. Which we know could be problematic sometimes but we do just want to live there for a year. It’s either that place or an apartment. I think the duplex would afford us more privacy even if it is short on space.
Either way we are still praying for God’s will and that we are making the right decisions.
