Ben and I finally met our landlady last night and things are looking good for us getting the house! For people who are confused:
Currently, Ben and I live with John and Jessie. John is the only one on the lease for our 4-bedroom house. He and Jessie moved in about a year ago, when they signed said lease. They agreed to be responsible for finding other roommates so all Joanne, the landlady, has to worry about is getting a check from John every month. So officially, Ben and I don't have any claim to this house, and the only agreements we have are with John. So when John and Jessie move out in August, Joanne could kick us out too. So our hope is that we'll pass all the rental check thingies and get to sign a one year lease with Joanne so that the house will be ours to live in and fill with roommates. Yay! The end.
Oh, and I got the go-ahead to garden wherever and however I please and some suggestions for composting. And I slept for 12 hours last night, beginning with falling asleep without brushing my teeth and with all the lights on. Classic exhaustion.
