I have been looking for a basement apartment in the better part of the neighborhood we are in now. The other day I saw an ad...emailed, saw the apartment, loved it. They like us and said they just have to check out our references and the place is ours.
It's smaller than here but it's the bottom part of a house. There is a single lady who works shift work who lives upstairs. She just so happens to be FishNFry's (user name on here) sister in law. What a small world! There is just enough room for all of our stuff, tanks and pets. It has a laundry room we share off the kitchen, a big yard and cement floors...no worries about tank leaking to the bottom tenants.
So 2 weeks from today we will be out of this horrible building we've been stuck in for the past 3 years.
I just thought I'd share b/c I haven't felt this happy in a looong time. ;D
