This apartment’s too dingy.
This apartment’s too small.
This apartment has nowhere for the cat box, at all!
I feel like Goldilocks, only instead of trying out different bowls of oatmeal and different beds to nap in, I’m searching for ‘the perfect’ apartment. We’re going to be living there, renting for a year at least, and I don’t want to hate it.
I can compromise on some things, but definitely not everything. This morning I went to look at a basement apartment. The price seemed right, $900 all-inclusive for a two bedroom apartment. BUT, the apartment did not match the price. It was dark, tiny, and dirty. I didn’t even get to see the ‘master’ bedroom because the current tenant didn’t leave for the showing and was still sleeping. The kitchen was entirely too small, there was nowhere for a kitchen table at all! The living room was tiny too. And there wasn’t a tub. The landlady told me that the people before the current tenant had a baby and they just ‘bought a plastic basin for him to bathe in’. Um, no thanks.
So this apartment? Was a no-no. In fact, I don’t even want Matt to see it because he’ll totally say “I TOLD YOU SO!” But hey, if I didn’t look at it, it probably would have been a gem right?
I’m still keeping my fingers crossed that we get the apartment we want, or at least…the one we think we want. It passes my sister-in-laws approval, which means it MUST be good. And a two-level apartment building with two bathrooms just sounds heavenly!
I can’t wait to hear from them. I’m anxious, and scared. What if they say no? What if they say yes? That leaves 14 days to get packed and get out. Where will we find a couch? A kitchen table and chairs? How will we do this all by ourselves? Matt has his truck, yes, and even if we packed it to the top he’d still need an extra set of hands to help with the move. We’ll ask one of his friends, and his brother.
Laundry is going to be a pain in the ass, if you know what I mean. 3.50 per load will add up. But you know what? I’ll take it!
I just wish we would hear back from them, today!
I’m so impatient.
