The Great Apartment Hunt Begins...

The hunt for a new apartment has begun. I looked at one today, which according the the "landlord" was being redone. Well, I am not sure that we are on the same page. The place was in a word, filthy. The kitchen cabinets were painted, and it appeared that a hallway had been done as well. The stove/oven is small, as was the refrigerator, but both would suffice for my needs. The kitchen and living room were a good size, but the bedrooms are odd, and really only constitute 1 bedroom not the 2 as described. And they adjoin each other, with the bathroom off the smaller bedroom. Now this is not really a problem, unless my son is home. He would have to travel through my bedroom to get to the bathroom...Not something I care for. So I don't think this is a keeper. Although the agent said I could paint etc, I don't think I am going to take it. Not to mention the neighborhood is full of elementary aged children and dogs, and I truly don't want to live around a bunch of kids. Not that I have anything against it, since I had 2 of my own but I am too damn old to tolerate the racket.

On the other hand, the building next to me was recently purchased and is in the process of major renovation. And although again the apartments are pretty much one bedroom, they are large enough to accommodate my son and a futon for him to sleep on when he is home. The one apartment that is done, is beautiful, and there is a second apartment close to being completed as well. I did not want to live next to this building, but the apartment is pretty much what I am looking for. And I don't care about painting it, even though it is that damn sterile white.

So I am asking everyone to keep their fingers crossed for me and send good vibes that the price will be right. It would be so cool to just move next door, carrying my stuff less than 50 feet. I could move in a half day LOL, and be settled in a day How cool would that be?/COLOR]

Fingers crossed ... though it really makes it MUCH harder to type you know.

I'd offer to help move your boxes but it's a little far for me
