Moving Issues

I want to escape.  I am overwhelmed.  With work, the house sale, the move, etc.

I thought selling the house was going to be the hard part.  That turned out to be easy.  I was lucky and found the right buyer in this crappy market.  But they need to be in the house quickly, which means I have to be out quickly.  I can't buy a new house until I have the cash out of this one, so I am stuck doing a double move.  I've been searching and am finding it incredibly difficult to find a short-term rental, especially one that will accept my 3 dogs.  We have to be out in 2 weeks and I still don't know where I'm going.

Yesterday, I had 2 rentals to look at.  I drove 15 miles to the first one only to get a call when I was almost there telling me that it had just been leased.  The second one I looked at would have been perfect, but then the owner started backtracking and saying she didn't want to do a short term lease and she wanted a full year or to sell the place to me.  So I'm back to square one.

This sucks!

Cool, but moving in June in AZ. Don't be calling me for help. ;)


I finally found a temporary place. It's about 12 miles from me, but it's a big, new and CHEAP. We can probably start moving in this weekend.

I've done the double move thing before. It's not as bad as you think. A pain in the ***, yes... but not terrible. You'll find a place....and remember, it's a short doesn't need to be perfect.
