The Search for a Home

We have started the house hunting. Since we are going to be away all summer, I would kind of like to have at least an inkling of a clue as to where we are going to live when we return in August. We looked at some places today. Can I just say that apartment searching is pretty much the most depressing thing ever? Basically, you're either reminded of how poor you are by the crappy, ghetto locations you can afford to call home, or, you're reminded of how poor you are by the beautiful, roomy, over-priced locations you cannot afford. Either way, the reminder is the same: you are poor. I just want to find a decent place, with a decent price, that can semi-fit our belongings (better than our apartment now), in a happy neighborhood, near where I am going to be working and where Chad goes to school. Too much to ask? I think NOT! The universe, however, seems to think otherwise. I know we will find something eventually, but for now I choose to be frustrated and annoyed that we cannot find the perfect dwelling place immediately!


  1. hear.your.pain
    I can't believe how much money I've spent in rent the last 10 years either!

  2. Amen! I have some friends who have actually bought houses now and that seems like an eternity away. I just can't seem to imagine actually owning my own place although I have no problem dreaming about it. We are on the apartment search for after summer too. Good luck to you! Where are you going for the summer?

  3. Its ok we live in the ghetto 2 haha have fun house hunting katie
