This morning Josh and I got up bright and early, grabbed some breakfast, and headed over to Cape.
First of all we stopped and picked up a paper, the Southeast Missourian.
I grabbed a pen, prepared to circle anything that sounded interesting.
There were many, many apartment/home rentals listed in the classifieds.
Sadly, the bulk of them contained the two dreaded words...
And those that didn't, we were informed upon phone calls, didn't allow pets, either.
There were three places we couldn't get ahold of, but the addresses were in the classifieds so we explored and found them and then threw up everywhere.
We didn't really.
But they were so horrible.
That sounds mean, but at one point, Josh was like, "Okay, this one should be the third house down."
And I got so excited because I counted three "houses" down and saw this adorable little yellow place.
Sadly, the building that I skipped over, thinking it merely a shed, was actually the third house down.
So that's basically what our day was like.
We did find one place.
I was totally in love with it.
And they allow pets!
The only problem?
The rent was $900 a month.
I'll be honest, that's not exactly in our budget.
Josh said that we could make it happen, but it would be a stretch probably.
So basically we can get that one, but we'll need a roommate.
And I can't believe it, but I'm actually considering it!
It's either a roommate, or get rid of Swarley.
Well, that's how it feels right now.
And right now the roommate thing doesn't sound so bad.
I can't really handle the idea of getting rid of Swarls...
So we're going back in a couple of days to try our luck again.
If you could, I'd really, really love it if you guys could keep us in your thoughts, prayers, or send us some well wishes.
It'd mean the world to me!
