No, I need to move.
1. I saw a mouse
2. I saw a mouse
3. Our place is tiny and growing tinier day by day.
4. I saw a f%$#ing mouse!
OK. I’m officially sick of apartment living. SICK OF IT I SAY!!! Outside of the size of our place, which honestly, is decent…until I’m annoyed…then it’s a closet… I am sick of hearing my neighbors play king of the hill reruns ALL goddamn day and night, I’m sick of smelling my neighbor’s food..even though it smells good and garlicky, I’m sick of having a view of a wall, and last but definitely not least: I’m sick of not being able to prevent rodent infestations!
OK, maybe infestation is not the word….but I feel like we’re being penalized for someone else’s filthiness. And I’m distraught and seeking compensation for my pain and suffering for having to see mickey’s ugly cousin scurry in my kitchen. ::shudder:: Everyone says “oh that’s just the way it is in an apartment….or…”oh that’s just city life”…..I don’t give a damn. I want out.
Sooo…..Anybody wanna loan me a down payment on a house? I don’t need much, $50K will do 🙂
Seriously though, John and I have definitely outgrown this apartment. And even though it’s adorable with it’s hardwood floors and exposed brick, I believe we need to find a new place that will accommodate us better. Our current space has a combo kitchen/living room, and then the bedroom, this huge closet and the bathroom. There’s no real “escape” from each other in this apartment.
Look, this was us just last night:
We’re seriously considering moving into the apartment John’s mom has in her two family house. There we’d have two bedrooms, one huge ass closet, a living room, a kitchen, and another smaller room for an office. We’d likely pay her the same as what we’re paying here though. A bonus would be built in part-time child care when Baby H arrives.
In my heart of hearts I hope to find a place paying less, especially since it’ll be outside of Manhattan. When I look at places in Queens, Brooklyn, Jersey City….they’re the same rental rates as in the city! That’s madness.
Well, I’m on the hunt…cross your fingers for us!
Have you moved recently? Was it easy to find a place?
