Well, I woke up this morning and things seemed somehow more right. Somehow more cheerful. Things are by no means perfect now mind you, and the appartment has it's shortcomings as do all appartments, but those shortcomings are far less than on any apartment I've lived in before. Simple things like where I prefer the cable outlet on the wall, location of light switches, etc. All-in-all, I really like it. It has everything I need and more. They are replacing a lot of stuff around it. They just redid the entire inside, though they are still working on the shower in the master bedroom's bathroom. They are painting all the fixtures on the outside, redoing the sidewalks and railings. And they are going to come tear my patio up and put in a new one. It's very spartan right now, but with some love, and a little time, it shoudl turn into a true home, and that is something I haven't had for a very long time.
