Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!
I've been in my "new" apartment since February. I can't believe how fast the time has flown by! I've been here almost 5 months already which means I'm halfway through my 10 month lease! My lease is 10 months but my rent can't go up until I've been here 12 months, and since I have to give 30 days notice before I move out I only have about 6 months left to decide if I'm going to stay here or move again! To be honest the rent I'm paying here is a struggle...every single month! I really loved my old apartment a lot more than this place and this place is about $500 a month more! I'm still bummed that I had to move but I know my landlord knew I was paying way below market value!
Enough feeling sorry for myself! Actually I count my blessings every day! I have so much to be thankful for...we all do!
There are things I love about living here. The place is much cleaner than my last place even though they both built about the same time...in the late 60s - early 70s.
So, this is my tiny kitchen! I thought my last kitchen was small but this one is even smaller but I love that it's open to the living room. I think I'm also loving being on one floor. I love two-story homes like my old apartment but I sure don't miss climbing the stairs a million times a day!
I'm slowly switching from dark blue and white to Aqua and white. I'm still looking for a cute aqua rug for my kitchen so until then I still have a navy one there.
So this is sort of funny...when I looked at this place I thought it had tile floors in the kitchen and dining room. The same flooring is in the bathrooms. It wasn't until I moved in and was barefoot that I realized it wasn't tile, it was vinyl flooring! I was shocked that I was fooled! Now that I know, it seems so obvious! I sure wish it were tile! Oh well!
