Apartment Hunting = Hell On Earth

You may think I'm being dramatic...But no. I'm pretty sure Satan has actually moved to Rexburg to make sure that Cody and I never find an apartment and are miserable and homeless the rest of our Rexburgian lives. I've been apartment shopping since the end of May or beginning of June. We've looked at dozens, and I mean DOZENS of places but there's always something wrong and we don't get it. And if we do decide to get one it's already taken. We've had our eye on this complex since June and really want to move there, but there are only like a dozen apartments, no on-site manager, and each building is owned by different people. So there is no way of calling and finding out if anything is ever opening up. It's not too fun. I drive by at least once a week to see if anyone has put up a "For Rent" sign in the window. No one ever does.

We just went and looked at a 2 bedroom plus den "house" this morning. It's more like a trailer, but really pretty nice and the yard is amaaaaaazing. I don't know if I'll ever be able to have a small yard because my parents yard is ginormous and I've always had a lot of open space...and this yard is so nice. It's in our price range, but with the utilities (only gas and electric..they pay for everything else including internet and Dish tv!) on top of it..It's a little too much. We can still afford it, but Cody's planning on quitting his job in January and I'm (hopefully) quitting when the baby is born, so we're trying to save money..Not just get by.

We went and looked at a different place a few weeks ago not far from that house. It's the top apartment of a house and really nice. The living room is really big and reminds me of Catheryn and Steve's old living room. Probably just because of the entertainment center the lady had...But it still reminded me of them. They have a yard too, which is a plus. We've been talking to this lady about signing a lease and I think we might have found a place...but we'll see! Hopefully our next post will say- Hallelujah Satan has moved home!

Dude, I feel you. Apartment hunting is the worst - Dizzle and I once spent an entire year looking for an apartment (we spent the entire NEXT year looking for a house). House-hunting's even worse, just so you know.

How's that for an uplifting comment? Sorry!

Hey! What apartment's are you guys looking at? We moved to Hyde Park where it's the same situation. Several owners and such, but our owners are the only ones that have a manager that live in one of the apartments. The rest are all owned my rentmaster. So if you need a number let me know. Good luck with everything!
