My net access has been spotty the last several weeks but it finally got all settled this week.
For those who weren't aware, I got into a situation where
I ended up having a week's notice that I had to move. It ended up taking me two and a half, and by the time it was over I was exhausted.
At the time, my plan was to simply "land" somewhere
long enough to regroup and then buy
a place. I was lucky; I found a place in a good area, with a good location (only four miles from work!), and that would accept pets on the day after I found out I would have to move.
But moving sent my finances more haywire than I'd expected them to go, and between that and some other things I've changed my mind about buy
ing. I'm going to wait another year or so. In the meantime, instead of
just unpacking as little as possible and sleeping on the futon, I'm going to completely unpack and make this into a home.
This is the floor plan, which is an excellent start with lots of
potential. It's 696 square feet and the only difference between this picture and my unit is that the storage
area and water
heater are reversed. And the stove is gas, which I haven't had in a long
time. I'm going to enjoy that!
Next up? Furnishing!
the living room and doggies..Foxy and Maximus..our babies..Well..we have a new leather couch and recliner on order .. delivery next Friday..we bought this area rug on Saturday..and now not sure if it "goes" with the flooring or not..we still need to get new cof
fee table and end tables..soon.. The fireplace is a fake one we got a couple of years ago at Home Depot..has a fake fire thing and even can use as a heater..the door you see is a closet that has a storage
space behind it. this is where
all the Xmas stuff is stored and the water
heater is back in there too.
