A couple of weeks ago, when we first began to ponder our big-city adventure, we planned to load up our U-Haul today. In this moment of uncharacteristic positive attitude, I find myself glad I avoided actually reserving a truck. U-Haul insisted we provide a destination ZIP code, and since Atlanta has dozens...

For you see, we still don't have anyplace to move into. Argh.

We've found plenty of prospects, weighed pros and cons, and applied for a few. But damn these people are slow! I understand the need to run credit checks and talk to references. I do. I don't understand why these processes are taking for freaking ever.

Top picks?

1. Cute 2-bedroom cottage in Cobb County. Pros: extra bedroom, actual yard, off-street parking for two. Cons: potentially hellish and expensive commute to work, no nearby public transport.

2. 1950's condo in northern Atlanta. Pros: cool neighborhood, convenient public transport, totally new experience for us. Cons: off-street parking for only one, no extra bedroom, totally new experience for us.

At this point I feel like the decision will be made based upon which landlord approves us (first). We both have to be in town by January 25 -- Doug to start work and me for a second interview. Seriously, we need to get a move on!

I'm so on the verge of a panic attack. Then again, when we signed our lease in Bowling Green it was pretty much here or the Motel 6. I keep telling myself this will all work out.

This will all work out.
