Basically, my major requirements for our new place are:
- A good size living room
- Bigger than where we are now
- Room for a kitchen table
- Washer/dryer hookups
- No bugs/mold/etc.
- In the same county we live in now, which is the county I have lived in most of my life. It's a nice, safe place to live, and it has great school systems, which is very important to me.
It's really close to my mom and two of my friends who both have kids, and it's a lot closer to my school, which will save us a lot of money on gas (it costs me $40 a week to drive to Dalton State right now).
We plan on giving the kids the bigger room if we do move to a two bedroom. Really it won't be much of a difference. The only things that Brentley has in his room are his crib, his changing table, and his plastic bin drawers. It really won't be much to put them in the same room.
We are going to meet the landlord at this place tomorrow to fill out the application. I really hope we get this place because if we have to go to a two bedroom, then this one is perfect. I really think that we can make this work. We want to find a place where we don't want to move again until we are in a position where we can buy a house. With everything we know about this place, I think this could be it.
