The house hunting continues…

I’m linking this post to Sunday Post, Stacking the Shelves, and It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?



I skipped last week’s wrap-up since there was quite a bit going on. We wound up driving 3.5 hours up to look at a potential house at our new location. The woman who put the house up for rent told us that if we didn’t drive up the following day (Saturday) to look at it, she was going to give it to the next person interested. This was after she accepted our application, took money for the credit check and said the house was ours. So, yeah. Last Saturday was spent in the car driving, only to find out that the house was way too small for us. I mean, there was no where to put my bookshelves… and I only have 3! By the time we got home on Saturday night, I was exhausted and not up to typing a weekly wrap-up post.

This week was just as busy and just as upsetting. There was a house that we put an application in for last month. Even though the house isn’t available until next week, they were going to go through applications a week prior to even allowing people to view the house. However, the pictures looked good, the sq footage was promising, and we felt like this was our place. Well, the beginning of the week started off great with the realtor calling me asking me small questions like if I was willing to pay “x” for a pet deposit, and what lease length was I willing to do? We were in the final stages of getting the house and they wanted to run our credit check. I was beyond excited because I know our credit is good and I felt like we finally FINALLY had a place. Until, that is, on Wednesday afternoon as I was running out the door to start my shift at Comic-Con and got the call that they decided to go with the other person interested in the house. No one could give me a reason why we didn’t get the house, just that they went with the other person. The Mister and I think it’s because we have a cat and a dog, even though the listing said they allowed pets.

At least Comic-Con was fun. Our shift got a rough start when the scheduling computer said we didn’t actually had a shift to volunteer, and that the next available shift was either five hours later in the night or the following day. The shifts are three hours long and we had left our dog home alone without a sitter figuring we’d work our 3 hours and then head home. So, that wasn’t going to work for us. Finally the lady took pity on us, looked on the main computer and pulled up our schedule and was able to get us in, but while we sat there trying to come up with a solution, our shift started and so we were randomly placed with another group. Which wasn’t so bad since we were in charge of stuffing the bags with the event books and lanyards. Then the following day we got to go back to Comic-Con and attend the convention. The Mister was able to get his two exclusive statues that he really wanted, we got a bunch of signed art prints, and I got to meet Sherrilyn Kenyon! It was actually really cool because as we were walking around the artist section of the convention floor we came across the artist behind one of the statues he bought. So we were able to get the statue signed. The one photo is of a woman who made a dress out of Comic-Con bags! It was insane and I had to get a picture of her.



Read in the last couple of weeks

Alpha is the third and last book in the Infinity Division trilogy. While I liked the idea of inter-dimension jumping while trying to track down a killer and finding your soul mate in the process, this one was a rough read for me. I never fully connected with the characters or the story.
Through the Fire was another great addition to the Rocky Mountain K9 Unit series. I just wish they didn’t mess up the cover so bad. The main character is a WOMAN with her bloodhound tracking dog. Not to mention the leading man is a rugged, hairy, recluse, mountain man, not a GQ model.
#Murdertrending was a very interesting read. It was dark, twisted, and filled with suspense as these teens try to survive an island filled with psychopaths.

  1. What a frustrating week! House hunting is hard with pets. I’m glad you at least had Comic Con.

  2. Comic Con is over the top and I always love it! I feel your pain when it comes to house hunting, which can be super stressful and frustrating. I hate that things haven’t been working out, but I believe that the perfect home is right around the corner with your name on it, so hang in there! Hugs…RO

  3. Aw sorry to hear about the house stuff. That would be incredibly frustrating! Glad Comic Con was good though. I watched a couple snippets of panels for shows I watch, and generally spent time this week wishing I was there lol.

  4. Sorry about the house problems. That’s frustrating. I’m glad comic-con was mostly fun, though. Have a great week!

  5. I hope you find something you like. I love house hunting but doing it long distance. It took us 2 week long trips when we moved from MN to NC, and most places were just not workable. But we found a place. You have some good looking books ready to read. Also I’ve always wanted to go to ComicCon and meet Sherrilyn Kenyon so some great things this week. Anne – Books of My Heart
