Apprehensive Elation

It looks like I landed a cool place. A very quick drive to my sister and brother-in-law's apartment. Around the corner from the best soul food restaurant in Seattle. Walking distance to shops and eateries. Trees! Quiet! Only 8 units total in the building. Black and white tiled kitchen and bath. Bay windows in the bedroom. Original hardwood flooring in the living room. A shared backyard with garden space. Laundry on site. Storage.

I've written the check for the deposit and have to wait until Monday for the final word. I know it's practically a done deal but still, I am cautiously optimistic.

It's weird to hold still after all the crazed activity of the last few days.

I just knocked on wood for ya. I'll wait with cautious optimism too as you wait for the official word (since clearly I'm a bit superstitious about such things, particularly apt.s).

My fingers, toes, legs, and eyes are crossed for you, Sizz! Sounds like a great place. :)

Now, you just have to make sure U-Haul remembers your truck reservation. Don't get me started on my U-Haul experience.

YAY! I can't wait to hear confirmation.

Wooohoooo!!!!

I need pictures! Do the whole before/after thing. Bare and after Sizzle makes it home.

Everything's starting to fall into place! It always seems like such a process when you walk through, but I have a feeling you're going to encounter a bunch of great new people / situations / goodness. Onward and upward, Miss Sizzle!

Yay! (in a cautiously optimistic sort of way)

Bay windows. Hardwood. Garden. Need a roommate? I'd move to Seattle for that. (I've a weakness for bay windows.)
