I can't believe I'm doing this again. I'm talking about moving, something I've done 7 times since graduating from college, and I'm only 9 years out of school. Every time I move, I cuss and promise I won't do it again. Yet somehow, it doesn't seem possible to raise a family in a tiny one-bedroom Chicago apartment, so here we are again.
Right now we're looking at apartments north of the city in Lincoln Park and Lakeview. We're hoping we'll only have to pay around $1200 a month. Holla! From what I'm finding, that means we'll have more space, but we'll likely have to forgo central air or a washing machine. There are community laundry rooms which are always fun! Many of the pictures of them look like creepy scenes from horror movies. I'm pretty sure I'll need to pack my taser along with my detergent in my laundry basket. (And yes, I own a taser.)
Wish us luck, we're looking at two apartments tonight. Did I mention our lease ends in a month?
