I'm a Christian husband currently finishing a Software Eng degree and wondering what God's plan for my life is. I sleep soundly in the knowledge that time will assuredly answer that question with little effort on my part.

Complex Estate

So house/apartment/flat-hunting is humming along, and I am learning some new things about the real estate industry. Like how quickly and expensively it moves in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. Short of living in an original-kitchen-and-bathroom-and-floorboards-and-never-really-been-cleaned-let-alone-renovated "el cheapo" residence, it looks like we're in for quite a spend to get basic accommodation. Although there are a few bargains to be had in the right places at the right times.

Perhaps the most frustrating part is that we have plenty of time in which to hunt down our dream villa, but that time is pretty much useless to us. Assuming we find our perfect dwelling tomorrow, we don't want to start renting immediately because we don't have the money to be paying double-rent for two months. And you can be sure that if we don't rent it, it will be gone by the day after next. So in the end, it will all come down to what's available in the week that we are actually ready to pay a deposit.

<sigh tone='exasperated'/>

Never mind. Wherever we live we know we'll be provided for. God has been very kind to us thus far and we have no reason to expect Him not to be in the future - and every reason to know He's given us all that we need already!
