Signed the lease today. Took grandma with me to check it out. She loved it, loved the neighborhood. Then I took her out to Portofino, the Italian restaurant down the block afterward for her 83rd birthday dinner. Goodbye money!

But, we have an apartment. It still needs a paint job and to be cleaned, so I won’t be getting the keys until Thursday, but I signed away all my rights today along with all of my savings, so the apartment is ours. At least for the next year, starting May 1!

Here are a couple shots I took of it.


Here’s the big living room, big enough to make into two rooms possible. A living room/office?

Stacey’s gonna love this kitchen. Plenty of counterspace and cabinets!

Or, check out an identical one.
