We are moving. Not where we originally thought we would move to but a better place nonetheless.
After my stroke, I moved 10 times in 10 years. I was running away...from me I think. Who knows. Now I have been here for 12 years, I liked it here but it no longer gives me pleasure.
I need a place where there is an underground garage. Too many falls on the ice in the parking lot here.
This will be such a nice move. Most of my furniture is dated. So we dont bring anything with us. We are getting all new stuff except for some personal stuff and the computers of course. We are looking for a condo apt. in a high rise available for June/1/13. I cant wait .Everything should be better except the laundry facilities. Here we have the machines right here in the condo. Most places we look at do not have laundry hook- up in the apartments. So we will have to compromise on that but the rest will be great.
Right now my furniture is a bit hodge podge and I have had it forever. We are going for a modern style. I have been searching the internet for weeks now and what I enjoy most about it is the interior designs as most of the apartments have been staged for the videos.
The place we are looking at now, has an indoor swimming pool, community hall with activities (probably bingo) an exercise room etc. I can`t wait. Since we are not taking much, the move should be a lot easier than my other moves.
Once we are settled at the new place, We will have a crew come in to clean this place (we are smokers) and repair a few things, replace counter tops maybe even cabinet doors, upgrade the washroom. All this will help sell this place and we won`t be living in the mess all that will bring.
