Homeward Bound I Wish I Was Homeward Bound

My search for a new home still continues (as does my search for a new camera). As some of you know I've looked into buying, renting, and even considered for a brief moment moving back home...just a brief moment though. The other day I made a call to a rental house, it's perfect, three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, new carpet, new paint, large kitchen, blah, blah, blah. Only thing this house doesn't have is a pet-friendly attitude. As even more of you know, I have a dog. So for half an hour after I hung up the phone with a prospective landlord, I contemplated what I could do with my dog for a year so I could live in this house (which more than likely would have a contract since the guy I talked to is a lawyer). In a year I would be ready to buy my first home so if I could just get rid of the dog for a bit, like a puppy boarding school...people do it with their children.
I got annoyed, the rental house was a really good deal, I think that's made evident by the fact that I was willing to sacrifice time with my dog in some important growing up years, I mean he's almost to the teenager stage, don't want to give him ammo to use against me later. That's when I looked into buying again, there are options for first time home buyers, good options. Since I already have two roommates I already have financial assistance in making the mortgage payment. Anyway, needless to say I am trying to set up "viewings" tomorrow on two that I am interested in. The best deal is probably in the West-End Ghetto, which isn't as bad as the actual Ghetto, much safer, but still not a friendly environment, or maybe I'm just a snob. The other townhouse (by the way I've been looking at townhouses to start, I've thought this through) is in an area of town I'm more familiar with and it's close to the interstate so I can still get to work pretty well. I'll let you know if I actually get a chance to view these properties, I'd really like to speed this process along.

hello it's me, kinda scary how I just pop up eh? Well I say go for it. I am really glad that we bought a house, even though we could have been a little smarter and a saved more first. but at least we didn't pay rent for the last few years.
