Quick UPdate

OK, so in true Brewer fashion we moved quick.

We found a GREAT house to rent in North Portland. This area is super cute, relaxed and mellow. 5 minute drive to downtown. 2 minute walk to the train station for my commute.

Here are a few quick photos:

We have a garden, a yard, 3 bedrooms, peace and quiet. I think the beagles love it too. So crisis is over. Melissa and I moved everything ourselves, which was fun taking a couch down 4 flights of stairs. But we made it.

Melissa again is the greatest women on the face of the planet. If you challenge that, I will just laugh you off.

So we lost a little money on the experiment of living in a studio apartment in NW Portland with two beagles. But we will get some money back from security deposit and if they rent the apartment quickly, which they will, we will get most of our money back.

I promise to take photos of the house once we get unpacked and settled. No internet at the house until Saturday. But we both start work tomorrow and should have access there.

I think this has been the most trying week of my life mentally and physically. So I am hoping the experience will make me stronger both mentally and physically. All my muscles hurt.

I'm in the airport. I land in Portland tonight and I drive to Longview from there. You should myspace me and give me your number. I'll call you.

Also I'm VERY glad that you guys found a house so quick. It sounds pretty sweet.

Wow, congrats on making that work out so quick. can i ask - where did you find the listing for your house? we're moving to pdx in a few months, and will be enjoying the fun of househunting soon as well.

I really think the best avenue is Craigslist. Lots of new postings each day. An obstacle to overcome is knowing if the neighborhood is a good/safe one or not. There seems to be pockets of both throughout the city. Good luck!
