International House Hunters

On Monday, we learned that our apartment was for sale. Hubs cleared his calendar and immediately went apartment hunting not knowing what to expect.

A few weeks ago, when we were tired of the mold, we searched for another apartment, but couldn’t find anything.

Hubs and I have different perspectives on how the last year has gone.

For me, it’s been tough.

To tell you the truth, it’s still hard to swallow.

Life here is so different. Yes, there’s been a change in urban sprawl, but there’s also been a change in our family.
