Daily chit chat

Wow it seems like ages since I have blogged..Sorry to be so far behind. It seems like I have just not been in a writing mood the last few weeks. Things are really at a lull at our house and life is boring..Well not really boring, but just everyday stuff that I don't really think is worth writing about. My daughter is feeling better, and is struggling to maintain a relationship with her boyfriend. They have a lot of issues to work out before this baby comes, and she is keeping an open mind that she may have to move back home with my husband and I. Of course I hope she can find some happiness, but it really wouldn't surprise me if she doesn't leave him in the end.
My husband and I have already picked out a bigger apartment "just in case" and are making plans to move there sometime next year on our own..Or if need be sooner with her and my grandson. As far as us, we really don't have monies for deposits and such until we get the last of my husband's child support payments behind us. We are on the downside of that and by this time next year will be done. Yippee.
The apartment itself is a townhome, but is in a complex so it is listed as an apartment. Downstairs has a Nice size living room, a half bath, a dinning area and kitchen with a you know how rare it is for an apartment to have a pantry (at lest in our area) The cabinets have a very country feel and are painted white. Which is something I love. I have an old antique Hoosier style cabinet (the kind with the flour sifters in them), that I use in my dinning room, and it will go perfect. The kichen window is right above the sink which will let in a lot of light.
This unit also offers an optional den which runs 100 a month more, but would still be in our price range (maybe). Even without the den it is big enough for us.
Upstairs is a stack-able washer and dryer, two ok sized bedrooms, and a bath, with an added extra vanity area. AND......The best part of the place is it has a back yard! Fenced with a garden gate of my own, and real trashcans..(you do share with one neighbor but the city picks it up TWICE a week) There is also outside storage and because the yard is fenced we are allowed to plant what ever we want..It even has electricity, so I can use those cute little garden lights.
I also will have my own mailbox..and my own parking place...
This place is soooo perfect for me...The only thing holding us back from moving there now, is $$$$. I look at it this way though..They aren't going anywhere, so I am going to take this next year to save a little money, sort through my piles of JUNK and dream.
