Trumped

We had a 3 bedroom rental with all the storage we'd need lined up, but couldn't sign the lease until a week from yesterday. It wasn't a great place, but it had been worked on (painted, carpets cleaned, etc) since the last renters. This house would have been an excellent alternative to a 2 bedroom apartment (which with the cost of a storage unit would be about $300 a month MORE than our current mortgage and 1/8 the space we have currently). The house was the same price as our current mortgage.
They decided today to rent it to people who want the house for a year. That is better for the landlords than our family who needed it for 3 months.
So we have been trumped.

Bummer! Well I'm sure you will find something soon - I'll be praying for you guys. God has something in mind for your family and He is never trumped :).

Sorry, but now maybe you will find something cheaper or bigger, or both!

We are so sorry Sweetie, Uncle Rick and I will continue to pray for you. We cannot wait to see what He has for you. Waiting is NEVER easy, but waiting on the LORD is always best. Chin up while you continue to pack. Give your boys a hug from us.
