Okay, I've already started the 'application process' to get the apartment! I'm getting all kinds of excited about it! It's not a government-subsidised apartment, like I was originally applying for, things straightened out in my life, and I can get this one! I just need to get some more paperwork about this N that, out there..
I went and looked at a one bedroom, & a two bedroom one Friday, and, actually decided the 1 bedroom is better for me. It's big, anyway, with a lot of room & closets (these apartments are fairly new, built in the laat 5 years) The apartment complex has a pool over to the side of this pond...there's another pond with a fountain, too. The bedroom has a sliding glass door to the outside, and the biggest selling point (besides the accessible bathroom) is the huge walk-in closet in the bedroom, which is so big, that that is where the washer/dryer hookups are! So there's no taking the laundry anywhere, I can do it, & hang it up right there!! How NEAT is that??? I still have some phone calls to make to get stuff ready, like get Truman's shots up to date, but nothing else major. The girl said the handicap-accessible one should be ready in a few weeks. Kim asked me the other night what's the kitchen like? (she's the cook, you know!). I said...well, it has a refrigerator, a stove, a sink, you know...it's a KITCHEN for goodness sake! lol! ...can you tell, I'm not, and never have been a fan of cooking. I really admire people that are, it's just not for me! About the closest I came to "cooking" per se, was when I was working in Fostoria & dating a guy from up there, and he was at my apartment overnight, and I had committed myself to making a veggie tray for a family get-together, so I was cutting up the vegetables & arranging the tray...John walked out to the kitchen, and sat down & watched me, then said...Wow...you're actually cooking!! I actually wasn't doing anything more than I did at work everyday! lol!
I just got off the phone with my lawyer's office & they're sending a letter to the apartments to verify that Kev's not moving in with me...Bro just showed up here with some documents to verify some stuff...woohoo!
This is SUCH a big deal to me, you know? We bought this house in 1990...Now I'm finally ready to get the f* out of it! It just rubs it in my face that we bought this house especially for the big bedroom upstairs above the living room! I've never moved much in my life, I lived in the house I grew up in from age 2 to 18, for heaven's sake! And everywhere I've moved since was in this town!!
