Life in a Small Apartment.... Episode II

Today is open house for the schools and ... big whoop... I can't muster up the energy to be excited! (just wanted to get that out there).

So how's is going in the new digs McGilly??? Well, what can I say? It hasn't gotten any bigger, if anything the walls are closing in. The kitchen has taken on a new persona, one of next to that a word? The fridge is full of stuff but I can't seem to find anything to cook with and have no enthusiasm for the culinary arts. I am missing my beautiful, family sized kitchen. I'm missing the table and the noise the chairs make on the tiled floor. I'm missing my calendar.... I have it with me at the apartment but it's not hanging up.

How 'bout the keeping it clean? I thought that was a snap?.... well yes it doesn't take long to put stuff up but it doesn't take long for that stuff to get back out again either! with the kids at home pretty much the majority of the day with the teenage sitter things are a little tense when I walk in at 5:00:30pm (yes you read that right!).

So, McGilly, tell me are the cons still on an even keel with the pros? I guess so but without the magnificent management of Mama things could easily start to go pear shaped. The best part of the deal has to be location.... got it down to a 30 second commute to work, 45 seconds to the grocery store and one minute to the Y.

The good news is that work is progressing on our "real house" and it's starting to take shape! Only a couple more weeks and we will be back to normal.... thank God!!! I'm missing my lovely neighbors by the way... really missing them.... I love love love them!!!!!
