I actually think the place is more like a “mini house,” as it is a stand-alone building, with a fenced-in backyard. The house is actually about five houses down from our current place!
Ryan and I are thrilled and will be meeting with our new landlord tomorrow or Wednesday to officially sign the lease.
What is something you absolutely need when looking for a place to rent?
I need a washer and a dryer. That’s a must for me.
Here are the aspects of the house that really attracted us to the place:
- WONDERFUL location (safe neighborhood and within walking distance of our gym)
- Fenced in backyard
- Large master bedroom, plus two smaller bedrooms (one will be made into an office/study)
- Great price
We will officially move in April 1, but since it’s ready right now, our new landlord said we can start transferring stuff earlier if we want. That should make the whole moving process a lot less stressful!
Unfortunately our alarm was still set for 6:30 a.m. from Friday, not 5:30 a.m. as we typically do on Monday mornings so I can make BodyPump and Ryan can get a workout in before work. We woke up a little before 6a.m., but Ryan still missed his workout. 🙁
I was able to get to the gym and did a modified cardio/total-body weights workout. Not too shabby!
After a quick walk with Sadie and a hot shower, I headed to my orthodontist’s office for an Invisalign appointment. I have about two months to go, and then we’ll do “refinement” to get my teeth exactly the way I want them to look. I’m happy to be on the tail end of this process!
I was excited to dig into my hot breakfast sandwich today since it’s still so cold outside. I made an easy sandwich with cheese, Canadian bacon and a whole wheat sandwich thin.
It was hot ‘n’ yummy.
Happy President’s Day!
