Renewed lease

Because our original lease started Oct 14, 2013 and was going to end Oct 7, 2015, there's a 3/4 month in there somewhere.

3/4 of a month is $937.50. We probably should have paid that as our first ever rent.

Instead, our first rent was for a full month. Therefore, we needed to remember that our last rent (assuming the lease would end Oct 7, 2015) should be 3/4 month.

We forgot that, and paid a full month as our last rent. Which means we were paid up past our original lease through to Oct 14, 2015.

That was fine, because we renewed the lease. It now ends May 31, 2017.

When we renewed, to keep it simple, we wanted to pay full rents at the beginning of each month. So we paid Chad for the second half of October ($625).

When the lease ends, we expect to be moving out of Bloomington, but may want to continue month-to-month that summer.
