I know everyone lives complicated and busy lives, but can I just rant for a moment? I'm looking for somewhere to live. It has to be in central Ottawa, preferably in a good school catchment area, kid-friendly neighbourhood, clean and well-maintained, large enough for me and a well-behaved, non-hyperactive kid, affordable (1000 or under) and - that's it. That's what I need. If it could also just drop into my lap through magic, that would be good, because I am feeling so discouraged at the thought of re-embarking on the search. I thought I found a place in Ottawa South, but the landlord isn't sure about renting to me because I have a kid. He's concerned about noise in the store below.
