We found a new place to rent (about half the size and twice the cost of the place we’re leaving!). As I mentioned, we’ve been spoiled where we are (whole house to ourselves, big back yard, and low rent, which only went up $40 in ten years). One thing I wont miss when we move, however, is the neighborhood rats (I do like rats, but not as uninvited guests!).
Scroll down to see the Year of the Rat art I finally finished.
