My new apartment has a pink bathroom.
I have taken a two-bedroom in the building down the hill, staying in my neighborhood and keeping the view that I love, though from a slightly lower perspective. There are some pros and some cons, but overall, it will do. (My favorite restaurant shares the building — this is both a pro and a con, I think.)
The balcony is as long as the apartment, which is lovely, but…long. Like, 40+ feet long.
The kitchen was recently renovated and will do nicely, although I have no idea where the garbage can is supposed to go. The bathrooms are next (I suppose they’ll replace the pink tile…). Each bedroom has a ceiling fan. There is room for everything that needs room and some to spare.
We have until the 30th to move out and will take the time we need to transition stuff without any added stress. My plan is to paint the new place this weekend before any furniture goes in. Anyone free on Sunday?
The tax-rebate-I-would-rather-not-get-because-it-won’t-do-squat-for-the-economy-anyway will likely pay for movers, window coverings (there are blinds), and a new vacuum.
I will not be getting a land line, thank goodness — my cell is my new home phone.
Tomorrow I will go back to work. Things are actually slowing down a bit now, which is good and bad. Being busy is therapeutic, but being distracted while busy doesn’t help at all.
