We left Boston with a plan, excitement and a condo waiting for us in Seattle. Then somewhere between the Amish families we saw eating Happy Meals at an Indiana truck stop and playing pioneer games in Nauvoo we got the word that our condo had been sold and would not be rented to us.
We pushed onward and westward and tried to find another apartment online. It didn't go as well as we'd hoped and we arrived in Seattle with no apartment. After a day or two we found a place but it wasn't ready and it won't be ready for another week. We woke up nearly every morning not sure where we'd sleep that night (usually a stinky motel). And spent a few days in the park with the other homeless people and basically living out of the car.
Then came Adele...sweet Adele a wonderful TALL widow who opened her home to us and is letting us stay with her until our apartment is ready (7 days and counting!). I just love her, she reminds me of my own grandmother....red hair and all!
Seriously! what do people do when they don't have a bishop to call when they're in a jam.
