Oh, I can imagine. I have had the idea several times to buy a duplex and rent out the other side, we almost went through with it at one point, but I just don't think I would want to do that. The landlords we have now are AWESOME. I mean, it's been give and take, but we are in great standing with them. At the beginning of the year, we paid 3 months of rent in advance, they were able to buy the car they were needing with it and they just randomly decided to give us a new roof and even replace the window in my van for me for free when a tree fell on it last winter. This past month was really hard because I started a new job, but since it's with the school district, they hold your salary for a month and I had no idea they did that until I didn't get a paycheck and I had to make installments to catch up - but like I said, it's been give and take and they truly are very awesome. I know a lot of people would have kicked me out on my butt for something like that.
