House and Car Hunting

Other than spending my work hours driving around my new co-cotton picker, nothing much is going on. I am attempting to help her find a house, which is REALLY trying my nerves. There are tons of places being built, but most have been 'called' by potential renters...even those that are only 50% built! Other than paying a real estate agent one month's rent to find a place, the selection is slim in the price range she's looking for, which would be a NICE size house anywhere in the states.

I did get one thing accomplished today, I found her a nice furnished apartment, so she can get out of the cramped hotel room. The apartment is fully furnished, 2 bedroom, free wireless, nice size balcony, in a nice quiet village. The apartment is 8 euro cheaper a day than the hotel.

So, tomorrow, we'll be trolling around the area looking for a house that hasn't been 'reserved' by another homeless American.
******************************************

Note to self: Verify the renter's insurance is paid up before P takes her golf clubs in the yard and attempts to hit the ball. I might not be so lucky the second time.

I think I have narrowed my new car selection down to just two:

The Jeep Liberty:

or

PT Cruiser Convertible:

I'm not sure about the colors yet, as most are available. Maybe I'll decide right before we get on the plane to the states for Turkey Day, so I won't be able to change my mind.

What do you think, or should I look for something else?
