Back up off my jacuzzi
"We like you a lot, you're the perfect tennant -- it's just weird not using our basement"
I have to move out.
Moving in was great, but it was with the understanding that my landlords weren't sure if they wanted anyone living in their house, and that my living here was just a trial. I can't really say I blame them, because I certainly will miss the jacuzzi tub, giant bathroom, and the delivered meals. Most of all*, however, I will miss the two person steam shower.
This ends up not being a bad deal because:
„They're helping me move
„I get to help design the remodel job on the place I'm moving ino
„I'll still have access to a washer/dryer
„The new place is cheaper (except I might have to pay utilities)
„Closer to a main road, walking distance to grocery store/strip mall
„I "have" to housesit when they are out of town
Once again I'll have a kitchen, so cooking will be necessary. I actually enjoy cooking sometimes, and I can guarantee you the salmon component of my diet will increase. I'll be above ground for the first time since I moved to NY. I get to pick out the carpeting I want, the countertops, etc. and since I got a large say in the remodelling of our lab space I think I can handle an apartment. I wonder if there's any chance the new place will have a steam shower.
*Actually, I will miss the most the random times I come home and get invited up for a drink, or just sitting around making intelligent conversation, or holidays with their extended family.
