Back in Time - Into the Future

Woke up a bit early today, not something I prefer to do on a Saturday. But it was for a good purpose. We went and checked out another area apartment complex, since we're tired of where we are now, especially after having the cars get keyed.

And an amazing thing happened. The place we went to has mostly manor homes - they're closer to townhouses than apartments, and very nice. I was fully expecting them to continue their tradition of being full, and not having anything opening until well after our current lease is up.

But luck was on our side. They happened to have one each of the three models in our price range open! We took a look over the floorplans, walked a short distance in the bitter wind, and looked at a model of one of them.

As soon as they told us they had one, there was no doubt in our minds that we were going to fill out an application. And it went through, and on May 23, 2000, we get the key to the place and being the move.

It's two floors, two bedrooms, with a utility room and a stacked washer and dryer - no more coin laundry on laundry days, do a load whever we want. I am so ecstatic, I can't wait...

It's not a house, but you can't have everything at once. Besides, paying off bills and student loans are a bit more important for now.
