Moving in on January 1

Anna and I found an apartment!

It is a flat, actually, or a duplex or whatever it is that you would like to call it. It is located in a super young neighborhood, in a convenient and central location, on a safe street.

It is adorable and I am excited. The flat is old and containing all of the old house charm that is Anna’s prerequisite. It is not tiny like the other one we were considering, which is great.

[Unfortunately, it also doesn’t have the fireplace. Which is sad. But will probably save us on our renter’s insurance.]

What it does have includes leaded glass windows and hardwood flooring and a den/optional third bedroom and laundry and a huge basement that I can fill to my pack rat heart's content and a really long driveway and the cutest porch and – seriously, I just cannot wait to show ya’ll pictures. The place is absolutely charming and it is within walking location to a downtown area that includes bars (hi. yay.) and restaurants and other fun things and I am so excited to spend a year living there.

Glorious, glorious.

Rent for the flat is a little more than I wanted to spend, but I’ll get over it. Especially if we ever get a third roommate. Because then my rent will be so cheap that I’ll practically become a millionaire overnight.

I am not crazy about the landlord, but that is a story for another day. Bob is a paranoid yuppie who – I am fairly certain – does not pay taxes on the income he makes off of the house. He wears gaudy jewelry. And he is all into judging the character of his potential renters.

I guess we passed whatever strict standards he was holding us to...which was something more than just having a pulse, but less than having any substantial amount of money in the bank.

Whatever.

Regardless of the demented reasoning behind it, we got the flat. Anna moves in on December 15. I'll move in at the beginning of the year.

And then the fun begins.
