Over the past couple weeks, the hubby and I have decided that we will, in fact, be moving to the western border of Wisconsin come May, Lord willing. This has always been my hope and plan, but not so much John’s, who absolutely loves the city and historic nature of our current dwelling place.
Though I’m not sure if he’ll admit to it, I think the main reason for John’s change of heart is seeing just how stressed and frustrated I am and have been with where we live now. I do love the cuteness of our apartment, but let’s just say I struggle with just about every facet of daily living when I don’t have any way of keeping our place organized or clean. Our apartment has one relatively large living room/dining room (to be more accurate, our kitchen table is in our living room), a tiny kitchen, and then downstairs is our medium sized bedroom, our small bathroom, and two decently sized closets. There honestly is just not enough space here for us, even after moving many boxes into a storage unit. And since I know we won’t be here much more than a year at the most, it seems unwise to spend gobs of money on furniture items to help organize.
So, the plan now is to move into a place (an apartment) in Hudson come May. We have already found some possible winners online that have two bedrooms (each with a closet!), two bathrooms, AND allow dogs, and still are cheaper than our place is now.
I should also mention another change in plans… regarding the mention of dogs. Since this apartment we found only allows dogs under 30lbs., we’re leaning towards getting an Italian greyhound, hopefully from a local animal shelter. And I’ll shamefully admit, we like to frequent the humane societies and pet stores (with puppies) roughly once every 1-2 weeks… and we happened to run across THE cutest greyish-blue colored italian greyhound. You should have seen both our hearts melt at the sight of this little bugger. We are definitely excited to have a fury friend join our family! Hopefully it would live longer than our fish… we are now down to 3 fish out of what used to be 8. Good thing I’m not attached!
