    a flop
    well, the apartment wasn't so hot. it would be nice to have the extra rooms that it offers, but the rooms we already have (living room, for example) are much smaller there than they are here. Which means we wouldn't get the benefit of extra rooms, because they would instantly be full of our stuff that doesn't fit into the rooms that we already do have.

    the agent who showed us the place knows our building well. he said he thinks we have about 1000 square feet now, and that the new one is 1200.

    we also didn't like the set up. we would miss our open floor plan, and end up trading it for basically a single hallway with a bunch of little rooms coming off of it. the kitchen was awful, and although it's advertised as an "eat in kitchen" - it has this built in shelf/table thing that is meant to seat 2. The 4 of us could not eat there. Then there was this odd room off the kitchen that would fit our table, but i'm not sure we could all fit in there with it, and if we could, we'd feel like we were eating in a closet. Furthermore, when you walk in the buliding and look down the hallway, all you see are the old crusty washer and dryer .... not fun.

    what i loved about it .... the front stairway belongs solely to the third floor (the one we were looking at) and there was a pretty big area at the foot of the stairs, which locks and only we would have access to ... where bikes could be stored, and which we could use as a mudroom.

    oh well.

    i am down about it. i don't want to move there. There's no way that once I start making Firm Money I would want to stay in that apartment, and we're not up for moving twice in 2 years. No freaking way. but i do feel so cramped. I know I'm a whiner and a baby and a brat, but I would love to get the girls their own room, and us a study, and a mud room wouldn't hurt, either.

    perhaps i just need to stop going to other people's houses.
