I’ll make this short and sweet: WE GOT THE APARTMENT!
I can’t tell you how excited I am (especially since we had to give 30-day notice before we knew if we would get the place, because our landlord said they couldn’t release information to a potential new landlord, unless we had given notice already. Is that legal?)
Anyway, everything turned out ok, because we did get the apartment and now we only have a few days of overlapping rent responsibilities at both places, which works out perfectly. But it also means: we’ll be moving in three weeks.
I am freaking out a little bit. There is so much to do until then.
But I also can’t wait to move into a bigger and better place. It’s a bigger 1-bedroom apartment. We originally were looking for a 2-bedroom apartment, because we wanted more space and extra room where we could shut a door. We did compromise on this a little bit, because the apartment only has one bedroom.
But: the bedroom is at the very end of the apartment and in the front, there is a combined dining and living room and the front room can be closed off with a beautiful sliding french door and I just LOVE it. I can’t wait to show you pictures!
I am not sure how much I’ll be able to be around here in the next few weeks, so bear with me. I am hoping to be back to a more normal schedule after the move!
