We connected so quickly with this ward. They loved us from the beginning, not knowing how long we would be here. In fact, we are the longest running couple in the apartments right now (just shy of 4 years). To my knowledge. We have watched so many friends come and go, it makes me feel good that we got so much time here. Please keep us up to date on the parties and such, cause you know we will come back!!
What I will not miss: My apartment. It has been home, yes, but I think it was Managements goal to make it as difficult as possible to live here. I could go on for a long time about them, but I choose not too. Just know that I am glad to have a place of my own, regardless of what it needs done to it.
So, on to the house stuff! It is in Sandy. It is near the mall. The closest grocery store is Reams. Guess which one of those I am disappointed by?......................Thats right! Reams! Yuk. That was the closest store when we lived in Cottonwood Heights too, but we had the option of a Dan's just down the road. Now I have to go like 10 minutes out of my way to get to a Harmon's. And I will. I will really miss Smith's though. I have very much enjoyed being so close to that store. Is it weird that I am sad to be leaving my grocery store?
The house is 3 bedrooms, 2 baths. Two fire places and a two car garage. The back yard is HUGE so yes, you can come over. Nik is excited to have a place to paint, and I am looking forward to having space to do my glass. It will be the same space so I hope we still love each other by the time this is all over :)
I will need lots of help moving though......anyone want to volunteer? We are planning to move at the end of March, but there are no guarantees cause we don't have the keys yet. Oh, and we aren't packed. Like, at all. Oh well. I am sure we will get there. Oh, hey, if you want to come help with that too?
I am willing to take any and all home-ownership advice. Also, financial advice. It is scary how broke we will be for a while. How did y'all do it?
