Thank the good Lord, we found a place to live. We should be moving in by the end of the month. It only took two weeks. I have to be honest, I was beginning to lose a little hope. We would get out of bed in the morning and begin scouring newspapers and rental websites and also cruise potential neighborhoods. We ran across alot of places that would suit our needs but they would not allow our pets. And now, what a nice man we seem to have found to rent from. Keep fingers and toes crossed that everything continues to move in this direction. We had placed a deposit for the apartment we were originally going to rent and the owners of that property have yet to refund it! Bad form. Luckily we have enough put away to cover the needed costs but we still need the other back, that was a large chunk of change that we both worked hard for. B works for a law firm and one of the lawyers has offered to help us out. We both hate to go this route but they have had plenty of time to get our money back to us. I noticed while looking through listings that the lady with the crappy property was listing under three different names. Hind-site is 20/20. This just goes to prove that long distance moves are not easy.

The "no caffeine" headaches are the worst. But, there is good news. I may have a job by the end of the week and Jeremy is taking his civil service exam right now in hopes of snagging a job also. Still no place to live, the search continues. I'm seriously considering composing a letter to the editor of the local paper about the "no pets" situation. We have called so many phone numbers and not one allows pets. Being a RESPONSIBLE pet owner, I have plenty of rants over this situation but I will reserve them at this time. Most of them are not very polite anyway.

I've completely missed one confession and now, I'm totally late on this one. I do apologize for this but, one does not move four states away very often.
