On the Hunt Again

I just could not make it work! The cute little studio loft I had planned on moving into was just too small. I returned the key back to my friend this week, and I am again on the hunt for an appropriate 'empty-nester/divorced-dad/gay-bachelor' pad.

Actually, I'm just looking for a good deal.

I looked at two different complexes this week. They're nothing special, but they're both spotlessly maintained. One is located in the Quapaw-Prospect Historic District, the other is situated in mid-town, several blocks south of Oaklawn Jockey Club & just two blocks from my office.

Of the two, I think the large one-bedroom near my office will work best. Two aspects of living there have factored into my decision. Last Summer, I purchased a wonderfully maintained Lincoln Continental (a 2002 & their last production year), and I will be able to now keep it parked, under cover & hoof it to work each day. My waistline can use the added walk.

I'm looking forward to the fresh start in my own space.

Wishing you the best in all things! Want me to start saving boxes? :-)

No, I don't think so. I'm going to lease the new place a couple of weeks before I need to be out of the condo. I'll plan on taking a few things each day on my way to work, and have empty boxes to take home and re-pack in the evenings...But only if I must. :-)

I'm in the process right now of doing the same long slow move as I transition from one career to another and fromMassachusetts to southern New Hampshire.

I hope the new place works out for you and becomes a great place for friends and family, with lots of happiness.
