The Apartment Hunt: Accepted!

February 28th, 2007

This afternoon we were notified that our application, which included references from our bosses, our landlords, 2 months of bank statements and credit checks was accepted. This weekend we’ll meet, sign the lease and pay our fee and rent.
I’m sort of totally shocked that this happened so quickly. I’m typically the skeptical, conservative one. I couldn’t imagine going with the second place we saw. But here we are. After the paperwork is signed, we get to the big part: The Move.
I need to buy a shredder. I’ve probably got 8 year old mail sitting in my closets somewhere. I’m going to have to call in the Salvation Army to pick up all the stuff I’ll be donating.
And then there’s the apartment. Since it’s empty, we’ll have the opportunity to get in there before April 1st to clean up, to paint the rooms and to set things up before we start moving our stuff in. We have to figure out how we’re going to pay rent, how we’re going to set up the entertainment system, how we’re going to set up our network, which washer and dryer we’re going to get… everything.
It also means that we’ll be able to start moving in before the first. We’ll need to figure out how we’re moving too. A company or a man with a van.
This is going to be the real challenge. I hate moving. There’s a reason I’ve lived in the same place for nearly 8 years.
Stay tuned…

  1. Luckily I am an old pro at moving. We’ll be fine. I just realized I’ve moved twice since we’ve been together. This time I’m staying put with you, babe.

  2. Nice light! What neighborhood are you all moving into?
