Still searching for a rental home as the arrival of my family fast approaches. There are  so many lovely homes from which to choose, but it seems as though as soon as I find one that suits us, it's snatched right up.

I'm not asking for much. 3+ bedrooms, 2+ bathrooms, and a fenced backyard. All other specs are negotiable. We have our own washer, dryer, and refrigerator, so that's not a factor one way or the other. Carpet, tile, hardwood--any flooring works. I prefer a bathtub with a shower, but at this point I don't care at all.

My only requirement had been for the home to be in Meridian. It's the area I'm most familiar with and I'd like to remain in close proximity with the close friends I have here. Guess what, I don't care about that anymore either! I just want a family friendly neighborhood in a decent area.

If you know where I should be looking, let me know! September 1st is right around the corner and I'm freaking out a bit.
