Today was a pretty tough day. This morning we went to the bank, then we walked all the way to the cell phone store, then we strolled back home and made phone calls.
[bored at the cell phone store]
After lunch we walked to a leasing office, then walked to see an apartment, then walked home, then walked to see another apartment. In all we walked more than 6 km today. Why so much walking? I'm really scared to drive!!
Finally this evening I was forced to... we were coming back from one apartments and Ian got a call. He pulled over, we switched, and I managed to get us home. In one piece. The boys kept giggling every time I tried to put on the turn signal and instead switched on the windshield wipers.
We saw 5 apartments, only one of which is even a possibility for us. The rest varied between weird and awful.
[great view, terrible apartment]
I forgot how disheartening apartment hunting can be. The good news is that visiting these apartments has significantly narrowed my housing search to a smaller radius. Now I know where I want to be... I just need the right place to fall into my lap.
The boys are cranky, over-wrought, tired, and beaten down. Me too.
