I am moving to the area in a year, and I am looking to meet people to hang out with. As a single mother, I would also like to meet single parents. I am on myspace as well, and you can reach that site with my profile on my livejournal...

I will be 28 yrs. old  in a few months, into the bar scene, wines, indie/hardcore/rockabilly music and I am adventurous! So hit me up!

Still don't feel too welcome to the neighborhood!

I've applied for 23 jobs so far and haven't landed any. My bf does have a full time job, but minimum wage isn't cutting it, especially with a car breaking down and a baby on the way pretty soon. He needs a better job. He has cash handling experience and has worked as one of those people that clock people in at a construction site? Our rent right now is almost all of the entire month's wages he earns with all utilities included but electric. If anyone has any leads on an apartment or home for rent, preferably  that is hopefully around $450 or under with all utilities included that wouldn't mind a couple with a baby and maybe a kitty, that would be wonderful! Also, what do people do around here?? I came from the U.P. and I used to like to go hiking on the trails and swim in the lake. I haven't quite figured out Grand Haven yet. The lake is too cold right now and... I don't know what to do with myself. I'm suffering from major cabin fever. No more blueberry picking, no more trail hiking, no more scenic drives, no more walking up to the waterfalls... :( This is depressing. I don't really have any buddies but my bf. The lack of jobs is also depressing. But... I am approaching 7 months pregnant and can't really waste much more time looking for employment. Grand Haven so far summed up in one word to me is DEPRESSING. I want to move, but am stuck because I can't think of a city to move to. I'd like Grand Haven to be a place where I would like to stay.

Wanted for Purchase - Will Pick Up

Hello everyone! My husband and I are in need of more than a few household items. Check your basements, attics and garages. We know you must have stuff like this laying around and collecting dust.

MICROWAVE, 5 years old or less, no mini-microwaves, up to $50.

GAS RANGE, 8 years old or less, stove AND oven must work, will not repair, will consider all, but preferences for black, stainless steel or mostly black or stainless steel, up to $300-$400.

MEDICINE CABINETS for bathrooms, we need two of them, do NOT need to match, they are for two different bathrooms, up to $50.

BOOKSHELVES, BOOKCASES, WALL SHELVING, any size, any condition, we don't care if they're scratched up, dinged up, dented or just plain ugly as long as they're wood and somewhat sturdy. Also interested in laminate shelving if it's in decent shape. Up to $30-$40.

SINKS - PEDESTAL/ WALL MOUNTED/ OTHER, we need a pedestal sink for one bathroom and some kind of other sink for the other bathroom (not picky on style). No cracks. We have not researched prices for sinks yet, so I have no price range to post. Make offers.

TOILET, just needs to be a working unit, no cracks, doesn't need to have a seat (we'll buy our own). Make offers.

WARDROBE/ PANTRY/ CABINETS/ STORAGE, we need this kind of stuff too, price range too great to list, depends on what you've got.

room for rent

Anyone need a new place?

We have a room (possibly two) for rent!!!

We're looking for a roomate, age 18-30ish, any orientation, male, female, or couples.. We are pet and smoker friendly, although smoking areas may be limited this winter to individual bedrooms and the heated breezeway.

The house is in Norton shores, near the mall and Cinema Carousel. One resident is a full time college student at MCC.. It's a 4 bedroom, 2 bath with large fenced in yard, kitchen, dining room, living room with fireplace, and a study.
We're all open, laid back people and we all work full time, but we all like to have fun. 3 people live there, two share a room. We have a large dog, large iguana (caged most the time), and a cat in the house.

Rent is $250/month. Utilities are included, but some months there may be a bit extra, never more then like $20-30 per person, and only if our gas bills are high.

If you're interested, feel free to comment, email me Iamx88@aol.com, or call me (Heather) 231-206-3561 .
I don't get online all that often so calling is probobly best, but I'll get to my messages online within probobly a week or so. :)

Dearest Grand Haven,

There is a show at the Morning Star 75 Coffee Shop in Grand Rapids Saturday Jan. 29th at 7:00pm.

Pseudo: Grand Valley's zaniest comedy peoples.

Quiver of Arrows: A rockin' group that has Paul Baribeau in it. Paul Baribeau totaly won second place in the spotlight talent show on Tuesday. If that doesn't convince you what will?

Beastwood: Two guys that sit on lawnchairs and kick stuff and say bad words.

The flamingo-gos: A 60s style rock n' go-go group all the way from Canada. Trust me they know how to rock in Canada

The show is $5.00

I really hope you all can be there.

I write it here because I am from Grand Haven and i started this community so I can do what I please.
