OUT: We signed the lease on a new apartment. We're only moving 2 miles down the road, but instead of living in a condo complex surrounded by big-box stores, couple of car dealerships and a community college, we'll be in a residential area near a big lake. I have to go through all the boxes that never got unpacked from the move to FL....because we're moving....
DOWN: Once again, we're downsizing. The house on the Cape was 9 rooms with a basement and a garage. The current apartment is 7 rooms with a couple of decent sized closets. The new place is 5 rooms with one big closet, one small closet, one small pantry closet and one small linen closet.
UP: Our current apartment is on the first floor with windows on only one side I had no windows in my kitchen and dining room. Our new apartment is a second floor, corner unit with a BIG screened in porch, a big living room and lots of windows.
And 10 stairs up to our door. My knees keep whining, "are you freaking KIDDING ME????" I'll let you know what they say when I have to climb them every night after work, lugging my extra large work purse and groceries. Our new rent is lower than our old rent, so maybe I can start saving up for the knee replacement surgery.
I'll take some pictures after we're all settled in.
