We have begun the process of making our way to Denver. Colby doesn't graduate till December but the kids and I are already moved out.
Our lease on our apartment ended on August 31. At that time we were to pay month-to-month rent. Seeing as how that would increase our bill by nearly $300 each month we decided to look at other options. We have a lot of expenses coming up and we need every penny. So the thought of the kids and I living with my parents for 6-7 weeks to save a few thousand $$$$ dollars was very tempting. We threw around a ton of ideas and changed the date of the moved so many times.
We even had a friend of ours, who is a contract lawyer, look over our lease contract to see if there was a way to get out of it. Because as of right now we are stuck with paying all that extra money for the month of September because we did not act fast enough. We proposed a few ideas and compromises to the leasing office but to no avail. We did manage to talk them down a bit on the month-to-month rate but still it is a lot of money. So right now we are still pursuing all efforts to find someone to buy our contract for September. And the good news is something will be coming to check out our place this weekend! Wahoo! Keeping fingers crossed.
In the mean time, Colby is bacheloring it up in our apartment with paper goods to eat on and with as well as a desk, folding table and lawn chairs as furniture. Don't worry he does have a bed and amidst all the packing I was able to cook and stock the freezer with meals for him that he can throw right in the oven.
Man he is spoiled!!!
Originally the kids and I were not going to leave St louis until Sept 5. However, on Sunday, the 26th, we received word that Colby's grandmother had passed only a few minutes before.
She was 93, and a mother of 7 sons!!!
This beautiful picture of her is from our wedding.
Before she passed she was able to meet Eden and she also completed a baby blanket for her and just a few weeks ago we received one for Axel too!! Thank you Grandma! They are beautiful and and so special and we will tell our kids about the amazing woman who made them!
