no apartment yet

Good morning.
Well, it's Wed. so it's back to work.  :-(
it was a busy weekend with looking at apts. and working in the house and yard.
We had the appraisal yesterday, and our realtor said it would be a couple of days to get the results.
 We also looked at more apartments. We've now looked at everything on our side of town. The one I really like is really expensive, and the really cheap ones are really icky. So hopefully we'll find one in between.    :-)
We still have nearly 3 weeks. That's a lot of time isn't it?  :-/
But I've done a little more packing and thinning out. More weeding and deadheading, and everything looks like it's coming along well. Just need to find that special apartment.  :-)
And here's one of the last pics I'll probably be taking of our yard.....
After looking at apartments, I'm going to miss my house and yard. But life is a journey, and time to move on from this 30 year section of that journey. Our future is in Las Vegas, and this is just another part of the transition.
Now I'm off to work.


  1. Is there anything you want to take to Vegas, but not an apartment? Maybe you could do one of those PODS things and empty it on your next trip.

    Of course I understand new life, new stuff to collect, too.

    Is there a part of town you travel to a lot? Any apartments you might consider living in there?
    Good luck and hope your work week goes well.

    LOL, when you said "icky" I truly understand what you mean. That's how is here too. For a decent place its an insane $1,500 for a two bedroom and $900 for a place classified as "icky", which is also insane.
    When we were selling and needed to find another place and we were wondering if we were going to have to rent. Home inventory is very low here. I can tell you that it really pushed us to find something to buy. Since we have pets, we had to consider the additional charges. They charge a deposit and a monthly pet rental fee, we had 3 dogs at the time and it was going to be outrageous.
    Good luck! MikeInDallas
