The Good, the Bad, the Ugly, and the Funny

Every home has its good points and its bad and even maybe some ugly, and now that I've lived in my new apartment for 3 weeks, I've identified a few that I thought I'd share.

The Good

* less expense

* less room to store stuff, to clean, etc.

* no fenced back yard = more walks with Dazey  (I'm sure that won't be on the "Good" list when cold weather arrives  lol

* living right in the heart of the community, within a couple hundred yards of the post office, coffee shop, market & other stores, etc.


The Not-So-Good (because these things aren't really *bad*)

* flies -- it seems there are always a couple of flies in the apartment

* the dark kitchen without windows (thank goodness I don't spend lots of time in meal preparation)


The Ugly 

* I found this just yesterday -- the previous renters left a little pile of doggy doo in the behind one of the floor-length curtains in the bedroom


The Funny

* The unit came with a washer & dryer that are "stacked", but not really stacked in the normal sense. The washer is a top-loading and is on bottom, so the dryer is mounted (in brackets) high enough that the washer lid opens about 3/4 of the way. That's not the funny part, though. The dryer is mounted too high for me to reach in, so I have to unload the dryer and hang & fold clothes while standing on the top of a 3-level step-stool. It makes me laugh every time I do laundry, which is not a bad thing at all. :)
