Best wishes to you, princess. I know how crazy it can be trying to find a home on the spur of the moment. Been there before, done that. Hugs...

If you find a place you really, really like offer them a higher rent to compensate them for the extra month and reduce the immediate burden on you of shelling out a full month. For example if the rent is $600/month offer to pay $650/month for the first year.

Good luck!

Thank you for that idea, Aunt Bea! I'll let Mom know she can make that offer.

Stray Thoughts 2.0

Made DH a sandwich for lunch: ham, chicken, lettuce, cheese, mayo and mustard. DH heard on a radio talk show this morning that sandwiches are always better when they're made by someone else. When I tell him,"Just make yourself a sandwich,", he always tells me mine are so much better.

It's warm enough outside that one of the dandelion flowers fainted. It was just drooping and "looking" straight down. Now that it's in shade, it has perked right up and looks normal.

Would have been better if that dandelion had died. BwaHaHa! I told Himself he doesn't need to buy me flowers for Mother's Day, he can just pick those yellow flowers out of our lawn.

That's because they probably are! I know the sandwiches I would make for Himself's lunch were better. Many men think a sandwich is a slice of meat between two pieces of bread, period. Oh YUCK!

We can't diss the dandelion. They're the honeybees' and hummingbird's first food in the spring, as well as the harbingers of morels, which I've had yet to find.

DH is obsessed with plucking dandelion flowers on our yard when we're walking Beagle. My feeling is that they'll disappear soon.

I like dandelions. I'm not the only one. They were intentionally imported from Europe for colonists who missed them.

Are you renting this place or buying it? I am now very confused.
