As some of you know, Jess and I recently moved into a rental house that we really love, but unfortunately we got some bad news today. Our landlords (who live next door) are really sweet elderly couple, and the wife was just diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. They’ve (very kindly) asked us to move out for February so that their son who lives in the area can take the house that we currently live in. The husband is not well physically, so they don’t really have anyone to help them make it to chemo appointments and all the other stuff that comes along with this.
Jess and I completely get it. We know that we have rights as renters and could fight them on this, but who are we to say that a woman can’t be in her own home, or close to her family during this time? Their situation is much, much worse than ours and I don’t think we’d feel very good about ourselves if we were to put up a fight.
If any of you see any houses for rent (preferably on the east side of town) email me at email@example.com.
