I'm learning parts of me for the first time. Having a baby on the way changes your priorities in all kinds of strange ways, but the main thing it does is focus your mind like a laser on what this impending little human will need. The needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many. To that end we realized that there just isn't room in our current place for another human, so very, very reluctantly we have started looking for a bigger place. Now every time we've had to move it has been a relatively easy endeavor. Mrs. Marius is a ninja at finding places within our means, but this time things aren't going so smoothly. It would appear that what we can afford, rental wise, is not considered to be very much in this area, and all we've been able to find are hovels in shitty neighborhoods, or nice places 50 miles away. We actually found a tolerable place this weekend, looked at it, endured both the real estate agent and the owner trying to push us to commit to moving sooner(which we won't do), put in an application, and have now been waiting for days while they don't get back to us. This is all very frustrating, and we have decided that no matter what happens we will be shifting into austerity mode, cutting out any and all non-essentials and putting every dime we can spare toward the down payment on our own place.

Dammit, this sucks!

Happy Friday, y'all.
