Also in there, terri_osborne and I scoped out our new digs. Not sure if I've mentioned this or not, but we're moving -- all of one flight down, mind you. *laughs* It's an apartment with the same floorplan as our current place, but with several important improvements:
1. One less flight of stairs, a fact appreciated by our aging knees.
2. Ceiling fans in the dining room and one of the bedrooms (which will be my office).
3. Two air conditioners already in place, plus we can bring down the one we bought when we moved here, giving us three, which is a huge improvement over the one we have right now.
4. Best of all: two patios, one off the living room, one off my office.
The only drawbacks are comparatively minor, and overall we're quite pleased. When we first moved in together in 2001, I moved in three weeks before she did, and we'd never lived together before. In the time since, we've figured a bunch of things out, and also gained extra storage space in our garage that we can make good use of to give us a fresh start, and also provide an apartment that's us instead of the two of us melded together....
