I’m potentially hearing about an apartment today; if not today, then Monday.  I signed things, turned over my money, made it official.  So now I’m just waiting to see if they’ll accept my application.  If so, I’ll be moving next month, near the end of the month.  If not, I start over.  It has a full size, front load washer and dryer inside.  It’s around 700 sq feet, which is slightly smaller than what I have now, but not by much.  The kitchen is a good size.  There is less closet space, but there’s a storage shed off the patio.  It also has a fireplace, but with glass doors, so I wouldn’t have to worry about my cats, like here.  The management has been there long term, as well as most of the residents.  They promise there is no known bug problem. (Yes, I asked.)

So if I move, I will have plenty of time to pack.  And when I’m doing that, I can go through my things and pare down.  There are tons of things I never use that I’ve just been storing.  And clothes I never wear, but that I keep for some stupid reason.  It will be a good opportunity to clean stuff out.


In really fun news, my cold of last week settled into my chest yesterday (and here I thought I was over it), so I went and bought Mucinex DM (after staring at options for a good 15 minutes).  Oh my god, that stuff works so great.  I bought the 12 hour, extended release pills so it could work all night.  Granted, it made me a bit loopy, so I couldn’t take it during the day, but wow.  I slept great and this morning, I don’t feel congested at all.  My throat is still a little sore and my voice a little tired, but that’s from coughing, not anything else.

I want to go back to the days where I never got sick.  Last year was my first cold in three years.  Now I’m averaging two colds a year.  Boo!


Well, I guess it’s time to start my day. I have things to accomplish!
