Tough Choices


I am torn.

Under the lip of my door was the “early lease renewal” reminder. My current agreement is done in August.

The renewal offers a lower rental rate. But they are going to start to charge for gas. Which, to be honest, I can live with out. It’s only used for my fake fireplace.

I have wanted to move. The smell of the month old diapers full of spoiled Indian food wafts in the window from the apartment below during the summer. I like to sleep with the windows open for fresh air, but there have been smokers near by who like to stir me from my slumber.

There is also that hour-long drive to work and home.

On the plus side, I have a great view of the pool. It’s near the places I like and the people I like to hang around.

So here are the options.

Find a super cool apartment on the north side and pay a lot more rent but will be 10 minutes closer to work.

Move to Depot Town where I am close to friends, pay much less rent, walking distance to the bars and restaurants we go to, walking distance to the summer beer festival.

Stay here, because I am kind of lazy about moving these days, have moved ever two years for the last 17 years and am really tired of moving, the rent went lower, and I have my routines.

After thinking about this very topic for the last six months - I am just ready to stay put.

  1. Remember me from the US-23 house?
    You can move in with me rent free.
    You will need to provide me comfort during the winter months,
    however.

  2. I think you should move to depot
    town. Nothing like being near friends and beer.

    I'll even help you move.

  3. If you move into the US-23 house, maybe you can finish it. C. Moorehead doesn't seem to be up to the task.

    Get out of the apt P2. Buy in this market - it's all the rage.

  5. I agree with the other guy, Depot Town is the spot. You can't put a price on being near your good friends and within walking distance to bars. If you don't do it now, you may live to regret it.
