Remember how I was extolling the heavenly virtues of renting oh what was that a whole week ago? Well amidst all the other chaos around here lately was the answer to our question of whether our landlady was going to try and gouge us on the rent when our lease comes up for renewal in August. The answer YES. Another house in our culdesac I found out recently is renting for $1700 a month and the owners tried to get $2000 so a $300 raise to bring our rent to $1500 a month is just part of the current greedy gold rush mentality here in the oily north. Nevertheless too rich for our blood. So we've decided to try and buy something. We can't afford anything here or even in the bustling metropolis of Grimshaw so we're looking in the small small places around here like Williamville and Nampa and Brwyn. We're looking for something small and old and cheap. And it would seem that Cowtown is going to have to wait quite a lot longer for our return.
p.s. maybe we'll buy a church to compensate
