First, I am sorry I haven't posted anything for so long. Nothing exciting or interesting is happening to us right now. Now to the HUNT.
Every waking minute, it seems, we are hunched over our computers checking Craigslist. In the car, at restaurants we are on our IPhones checking Craigslists. Then we call to make appointments. No one ever ever answers the phone. Messages and emails are left. If they call back the place has usually been rented. Every now and then we do look at an apartment.
We went to view an apartment that was 700 square feet. That is huge for a 1 bedroom in our price range. It couldn't have been over 500 square feet. I said it was small to the manager. He said he had noticed the owner had put the wrong size. So he couldn't tell me on the phone the correct size?
Yesterday we saw a really nice apartment: nice neighborhood, hardwood floors, fair sized kitchen with a gas stove, a little dining room, a garage, and on the ground floor. One huge problem, closets or lack there of. Bedroom closet would hold maybe 8 hangers and 2 pairs of shoes. Hall closet would hold 3 pairs of shoes and 15 hangers. No place for towels, sheets, vacuum sweeper, cleaning supplies, no storage. I looked at the dining area and said we could get rolling racks and use it for a closet. Wouldn't that be charming?
This morning we have an appointment in the next county. The pictures are really nice, write up sounds good. But who knows, some apartment owners write fantasy.
P.S. Tomorrow is 12/12/12. It seems this will be a major day for weddings. I am going in all day to perform marriage ceremonies. I have missed being at the Marriage Factory. I miss the staff and miss the warm feeling of love in the room.
