EQUATION OF THE DAY

VISITING NEW APARTMENT +
MEASURING NEW APARTMENT +
SHOPPING FOR NEW APPLIANCES +
BIGGEST MALL EVER +
FOREIGN COUNTRY +
3 OVERTIRED CHILDREN =
EXHAUSTING NIGHTMARE

This means, of course, that our prayers and yours for us have been answered for a new apartment...at least we think! The process for renting an apartment in Vienna is almost as bureaucratic as purchasing a home in the US. We officially signed an offer, waited 3 days, and today we received an officially signed counter-offer. Now we wait a few more days for an even more offically signed contract, then have our realtor comb carefully through it, and only then do we sign and get to move in. Our realtor even mentioned something about an inspection, so we'll see what that's like. TOO much information, but for teammates and potential teammates reading this, it's good preparation.

It was so fun "skyping" with you this afternoon!! James said right after we ended, "Hey, I really love that Miss Stacey. When are we going to Austria to see her?"

Actually, the Millennium Mall on the U6 Handelskai (not to be confused with the gynormous inside flea market by the same name in Hollywood, Florida)
