Good and Bad Announcements
1) Happppppyyyyyyy birthday to zordac. Go give him virtual hugs. He's feeling old and a little depressed about his accomplishments thus far in life. I think he's a beautiful person and should celebrate life everyday, not just the day of his birth. We hit up OVPC with alcamar, Will, C.W., Julie and Amber.

2) kesterly's grandmother finally passed away this afternoon. kesterly was at least there when it happened and got to see her for a while before she died. Visitation is set for tomorrow and the funeral Friday. Hop over to her journal and give her a hug, too.

3) I have to find a new place to live. The owners of the trailer park I live in are trying to rezone us to a commercial area so they can sell it (the Super WalMart is about six months old and lives right across the street). So, zordac has to find some place to move the trailer (inside the city limits so we can actually continue to have an internet connection worth paying for), find some way to pay to have it moved (it costs a couple grand to move one of these things), or find someone else who can buy it from him, find an apartment or house big enough for us to move all of our many belongings and furniture into, and do it cheaply.

Phew.

Christpher and I are moving to Oxford Square Townhouses in May, so if you dont' mind living in the country and having toilets that clog rather frequently, our house should be available in May. I say SHOULD because I don't know if they guys we live with now are gonna stay here once we move or not.

It's a nice house, but it's just too far away from town for our tastes. And it's only $800 a month, not bad.

Thank you very much for posting this info. I don't think 800 is in our price range, especially for living in the country where we'd rack up a lot higher in gas to and fro. However, I will keep that in mind. We'd have to be out of here in about two months, so I'm not sure that would free up in enough time for us.

But speaking of Oxford Square, that place and the University Arbors are the best value apartments I've found. They aren't as nice as a lot of the newer places, but the aren't exhorbitantly expensive and are very roomy. I've been keeping those in mind as a very possible option.

Oxford Square

Ok.. for those moving to Oxford Square.. I lived there for almost a year.. and I have to tell you.. the rent is cheap.. but heating and electric is huge. They are the most energy inefficient apartments I have ever lived in or heard of. I lived alone in a 2 bedroom, with one room blocked off.. and I almost always had an electric bill well over $100.. hit $200 a couple of times if I remember right...
So as I said to Lost_Angel in and ICQ message.. yea rent is cheaper.. but you more than make up for it in electric bills... but if you can control electric usage.. its a very good option.

Re:

They just remodled OS. The apts have new linoleum (I know I butchered that lol) and carpet and paint. They've also installed an indoor heated pool and updated the fitness center.

AND THEY ALLOW CATS. :D :D :D lol. Wherever we move HAS to allow cats. And it has to be in town. Christopher lived at OS before he moved to the Commons and liked it okay, so it's pretty much guarenteed that we'll be moving there in May.

It'll be like a quarter of the size of the place we have now, but we'll just have to deal. The house we live in now is just off of 6 East. It's technically 3 bedroom, but we converted the den into a 4th bdr. Two full baths. Covered parking, patio with a pool table, deck with a picnic table and porchswing. PORCH. Fenced in back yard. All electric, all appliances except w/d. HUGE kitchen.

Not a bad deal. We love the place (well that's a like, we like it okay, it's got is problems) but we don't like the location. If we could just pick it up and move it about 5 miles closer to Oxford it'd be PERFECT lol.

Perhaps since Oxford Square has been remodeled they won't guzzle electricity like kesterly warned. I wish you luck.

As for your old place, it sounds wonderful. One of my biggest worries is having enough space for all of our stuff. Jimmy has had 14 years of adult life to rack up a household of things and I am a sentimental packrat hoping to finally get the rest of my belongings out of my mother's attic. But, it looks like one of the other trailer parks is decent. I still have to go talk to the Ewings tomorrow and see if they will move our trailer for us. Jimmy is actually thinking about contacting the alderman because they haven't voted on whether they will permit this area to be rezoned.

Re:

I wish you luck as well, moving isn't easy.

Wow, you're such a quick responder :)

And I love your angel-to-devil animated userpic. I don't know if I'd already told you or not.

Know your trouble

Yeah, I understand - I myself must do the evil house hunting - and for me, I'm going for the actual purchase of a home. That is scary it is =P

Re: Know your trouble

As intimidating as the idea is, you will be fine. I'm certain the bank will give you no trouble of getting a loan; we all know you have amazing credit, work ethic, and financial responsibility. The problem is finding a house that you like that won't choke you financially. You still considering Terry or one of those out-lying areas?

Re: Know your trouble

Not sure yet - just know right now that it won't be Jackson proper. Some part of me wants to try and get a new home, something just being built. But then again, not sure if I can afford it - and it means going a bit further out of town - like Flowood or Raymond. Ah well - who knows. Knowing me, I'll walk in a home and go "nope, next" till one just sings to me.

Re: Know your trouble

I'm sure there are several that will be more quaint and glowing a certain aura of homeliness that'll be in your price range. Once you pick one out, I can't wait to see it, or even the ones you're just thinking about but haven't made your mind up yet.
