So the apartment I wanted has already been rented. I went there today to turn in my application. I was a day too late. Somebody else already applied for it and put a deposit on it yesterday. I am quite surprised. I just saw the place on Wednesday. The old tenants literally just moved out and the place still needed painting and new carpeting. The apartment complex wasn't even advertising. I found them by mistake. Somebody moved real fast on it. Lesson learned. Next time I am going to fill out the application right there in the office and give it to the very same day. Now I have all these thoughts running around in my head. I have exactly one month to move. What if I don't find a place in time? What if I have to move to a motel for awhile? What if ex decides to take custody of difficult child because I don't have a fit place to live? And if I have to pay child support there would be no way I would have enough money to save up for an apartment eventually. Sigh. So the search continues. I gotta hit the streets hard and try to find a place. Wish me luck. I am feeling the pressure.
