I mentioned finding an apartment that was even better than the almost-perfect apartment we didn’t sign for in my 100th post. Well, the landlord has decided to let us sign for June 1st on! We’ll be residents of a basement in Spanish Fork. It has two good-sized bedrooms, a huge, gorgeous kitchen that also has space for an office, a large living room, an enormous cold-storage closet that will fit all of our junk and maybe food storage too, a backyard with a sand box, washer/dryer hookups, and of course a dishwasher. It doesn’t have air conditioning, but I’m thinking in a basement it won’t matter. The landlord seemed great, the neighborhood is a fairly nice residential one, and the upstairs neighbors apparently have a little boy who’s one or two, so maybe a playmate for our boys.
It’s not going to be fun moving our furniture down the whole flight of stairs into the basement (hello, piano movers), but there are worse things, I guess.
One thing that surprises me is that the landlord said he’s got other people interested in it, but he still went with us. We sign on Saturday, provided I’m not in the hospital then. If I am, I’m totally sending someone down with a deposit.
