After perusing a variety of potential homes-to-be, John and I decided on #3 The Fixer Upper with a View. Someone on FB had jokingly said, "Maybe a Lowe's or Home Depot is nearby…" Ha ha ha ha…uh hem. THAT would be amazing, but sadly no.
Yesterday a lady who had been hired by our landlord came to the new apartment to do some cleaning after the a/c guys had completed their installation of the unit in our bedroom. They had left a good pile of concrete, wire and papers lying around so as to ensure job security for the cleaners who come behind. How very thoughtful. (They must sign a world-wide agreement of behavior.)
UPDATE: Currently, our city of residence is very calm. We are making trips out in the afternoon to try to get a few things accomplished, but are staying inside in the evenings when groups begin to gather. Our new Egyptian friends have been very thoughtful toward us. Thank you again for your kind notes of encouragement and prayers.
