So, we have been living in an apartment due to our house situation back home, and inability to sell it (crappy economy). So, we have decided that we really need to get more space, for us and the dog. A fenced in backyard, so that my life is easier when K is gone, and the poor pup gets exercise EVERY day, not just when the weather is right and Bug is cooperative.
So, we started looking for rental houses. It's been tough, because we still have other monetary obligations (damn mortgage) as well as things we want (IVF, future mortgage) and need (new car for me). So, we came up with a figure and are just hoping it all works out.
With that being said, I turned in an application and check yesterday for a house. Dependent on K's approval, but there was another couple that applied and if I didn't do it then I would most likely lose it as an option. I don't LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE it, but I do like it a lot as a short term deal. Like a few years. But I don't have the eye that K does. If he doesn't like it, or we don't get picked, we're out $150. Ugh. Needless to say, I'm still looking, just in case.
I'm getting excited about this weekend. I was torn as my best friend from back home is going to be about 2 1/2 hours north of me with another friend and she wanted me to come see them for the day. I wanted to, I really did. I need it, the shopping, the time away, the time with my friends. But, my mom is going to be here, K is home, and we were going to car shop (wooo hooo) and have a date while my mom watched Bug. Allow ourselves a nice dinner for my bday. Plus, I have to travel for work Monday and Thursday, and Mondays is really far away so I may go Sunday night. So, I think I'm staying home. I think I'll just insist that I get a bath, glass of wine, and nap while everyone is around.
So, I know I'll get the house if I'm meant to, but wish me luck in the search. I honestly cannot wait to get into something with more space. Oh how nice it will be for the whole family.
