Wanted: An Awesome Apartment
R, Bug, and I have out grown our tiny apartment. As luck should have it a bigger apartment opened up in our complex. It was perfect: two bedroom with an office, a deck, and room for Bug to run. From the second I found out about this apartment I started daydreaming about what I wanted:
A room with a view.
Maybe somewhere on the water…
…or underwater. At least one room.
It has to have an amazing staircase so that I can make a grand entrance.
A place to hang a hammock.
A fish tank sink. Maybe with koi?
Grass for Bug to play in. Inside is fine.
An awesome bedroom.
A pond outback full of paper boats is a non-negotiable.
A very cute shed that I can turn into an art studio.
Instead I got:
Windows that leak cold air and should have been replaced two weeks ago. Oh, and there are no blinds or screens and we are on the first floor.
Only one door has a knob on it.
But that isn’t the biggest problem since most of the doors aren’t on the doors.
Oh and the toilet is broken. There is an area in the bathroom where the floor is rotted. The stove fan needs to be replaced but at least the new one is sitting on the floor in the dining room.
Also the people who have been in here working let all of their stuff.Oh, did I mention that we have been living here for 5 days and still don’t have a key?
Maybe I should learn to manage my expectations a bit better. On the bright side it is still the best apartment I have ever had.
Have you ever had issues with an apartment? What would your dream house look like?
