House hunting

Well, J and I are looking to move mid September to a place closer to our work. We are spending anywhere from 1 hour to 3 hours a day driving and at least 25 dollars a week in gas. This alone would be reason enough to move. However, we also have made a considerable amount of friends on the other side of town.

We had a really good opportunity come our way, but I guess it wasn't meant to be. It really is too bad since it would have saved us at least 200 hundred dollars a month, and would have had us living with people I really like. Then again, living with friends can become tricky if you don't have the same level of cleanliness, food buying, etc. Hopefully the three of them can manage the house on their own and get a chance to just live as family for while. That's always ideal.

So now we are back to calling apartments and having to borrow money from Mom and Dad. I hate doing that, but it really does feel like this is the last time I'll have to do it. We have a budget now and plan to stick to it to a tee. If we can manage that and I can get a job (please, Tigard, call me) in my field, we will be able to slowly save up for a house of our own.

I hate the trudging slowness that goals seem to take, but I have to remember to enjoy life instead of feeling like I'm constantly waiting.

A good night out at a karaoke bar with a new friend should help with that tonight. :-)
