This whole “try to find a house in less than two weeks” thing is really stressful. I think Ryan and I both figured finding a place to rent in Ocala would be like it is in Orlando… a bazillions houses available!
Whenever we’ve looked for places in Orlando we’ve always had a handful of places to choose from and many options.
Well, in Ocala, the pickings are slim.
Our “dream house” was falsely advertised and isn’t available soon. I found another home for rent on craigslist this morning that got our hopes up, until we found out that the couple wants to sell the house and will be showing it all the time and would kick us out if it sold. Bummer.
We keep refreshing HotPads.com, Zillow and craigslist hoping that something new will pop up. One of the things we were so excited about when we thought about moving to Ocala was having a nice home since our current living situation is… mousey.
We’ve discussed moving into temporary housing if we can’t find anything in time, but that would mean moving twice, which we’d really like to avoid. At least it’s an option.
I’m really hoping something pops up SOON. I’m not a fan of living in limbo!
Dinner was yummy! Since Ryan and I were a little bummed about our stressful moving situation, we were both in the mood for comfort food.
Another noodle bowl!
It’s amazing how food can provide real comfort. This warm and cozy pasta dinner definitely made me feel better.
Hoping to get into bed early tonight with a good book. I need some distraction!
See ya in the morning, friends!
