housing woes

I am at the point where I really need to find a place & space of my own. I have loved living with families for the past year and a half, but I'm ready to open my boxes and pull out my pots & pans again and sleep in my own bed. My roommate situation appears to have fallen through for many reasons, so I am back to square 1 for the 200th time (ok, maybe it's not been that many times).
I started halfheartedly looking for apartments in the last 24 hours. I really am getting sick of craigslist and These are great resources if you want sketchy apartments without a washer & drier. Is it really too much to ask to have my own laundry appliances in my apartment? I mean seriously, I work with children all day. I get spit up on, sweat on and have kids stick there hands in their mouths (and who knows where else), and then wipe them on me. I want to be able to throw my scrubs in the washer whenever I feel the desire!
So, if any of you know people in Colorado Springs looking for a roommate or have any suggestions or ideas, I am open to any option that has a washer & drier and is not in Fountain (see previous post about shady towns right off army posts).
