Homeless !

I am temporarily without a place to call my home. How bad can it be?

My accomodation for the last seven years had been a rented one, and it has been sold. I had received a notice for vacating well in advance. We decided to move into a small apartment which we had owned since sometime. Till now, there is nothing surprising in the story, isn't it?

The problem is that the place we were supposed to move in is still under renovation and the work just doesn't seem to end! Now, our home is not ready and the new owners of the roof that covered me so long wanted the house vacated. But where do we go?

We pleaded for extension, offered rent, but to no avail. 

I thank God that He created a human bond called Friendship. They stood beside us in this hour of crisis - helped us in packing the numerous stuff we owned; let us dump them in their homes irrespective of how little spare space there was, and offered us accomodation and food. As long as we are ready to move in to our den, or even beyond.

I am overwhelmed by the support we've received from everyone around me, and wish everyone the very best in life!

@Usha-ji,
Indeed, and I'm glad!

@Star,
You bet!

I badly need your wishes! Thanks!

@Ashok,
A paradox, isnt it? Good observation.

Hi Anupama!
Wish you find your nest very soon, till then keep enjoying with your friends...
regarding your comment in my blog-post, yes, I'm happy because achievement is a very relative parameter and for me "two in 4 months" sounds quite good which you may not find mention-worthy from your position... :-)
Cheers... keep in touch...

Thank God for friends. Life would be intolerable without them. Hope your eventual move goes smoothly.
