~Yesterday Was Hectic!~

After the doctor yesterday we had a busy day! The kids really wanted to go to the library, so that was their smaller field trip we went on. They had so much fun! They played with blocks, picked out some books and picked out a couple DVD's. It was great. =) Then, after that we went to look at a house for us to rent. It was too expensive at $1,000 per month but it was nice. We are not going to get that one. We went to look at another house-but we could only see the outside because the tenants are moving out today. That one is much more affordable at $775 per month! It looked nice from outside, we are supposed to look at the inside this week sometime. My husband's cousin called and asked us to come over to visit. It was my first time meeting her. I really like her a lot! We had a great time. The kids had a good time with their cousins too. =) We ate with them and she told us about her landlord that has a house we could afford to rent. So, that is a possibility as well. All in all it was a wonderful but busy day yesterday! I am really tired and sore today from all we did but it was worth it for sure. I didn't have much time to be here yesterday because of all we did...Sorry for that!

Oh so nice that there is one of your husbands family that is fun for you to meet friend! I hope that is a good link up for you. Yeah I also hope you get one of those either the cousins landlords house or the 775 one. Yeah 1000 is a lot for anyone to come up with. Nice your children had fun at the library.

I see prices like that and am so glad I live in a small town. Of course, rent is higher than it was back in the day (I used to rent a full two story house for $150 a month) but it's nowhere near the prices you are seeing. You can get a very nice house around here for $450, and it's easy to find things around $250.

You make a really good point JJ. @LovingMyBabies do you have any scope to move to a less expensive area with more housing stock?

@JoiletJake Ugh I so wish prices were like that here! In NC where we used to live prices were cheaper but there was no work. Here my husband can get work but we are finding house prices are insane! We cannot win it seems...

I just came back to myLot a few days ago after being gone for awhile, but I remember your posts from awhile ago. I hope that everything works out soon for you. Your husband is working so that's half the battle right there. I know that you'll find a place soon, you already have 2 options, which is great. (Rent in my area is astronomical, $2100 and up for a one bedroom apartment.)

@HomeBase I remember you too! =) Yes my husband working is a major step up from where we were. Things will work out, it will just take some time. It wouldn't be as bad if I wasn't about to give birth again. That is an insane price for rent where you are!!

@LovingMyBabies Yes, a working man in the house helps tremendously, and like my dad always says, "I ain't never seen money come at a bad time." What a blessing that you are having another baby. I love babies! Yes, the rent is insane and the price to buy a house is even crazier, but it is what it is, right? I really like where I live though, so I can't complain... well, I could, but I won't, lol.
