Condo Watch 2006

Well, we looked at the condo again last night.  Bob was able to get around it just fine and he liked it.  He was as impressed as I was regarding the amount of storage available in the unit and its location.  It is very close to a lake/park/recreation area that would be awesome to hike and bike in.  As I’ve stated before, the condo is fine structurally but is very outdated in appearances.  The couple that owns it now has owned it since it was built in 1982 or 1983.  We have not yet made an offer, but our realtor is meeting with our lender and then we will all meet and sit down and write up an offer.  We are fairly confident that we will get the place.  If things go as smoothly as they have so far, it looks like we may be moving in October or November which suits us just fine.  The couple that owns it now is moving to California tomorrow so whenever we close, we can start painting and cleaning things up.  Eventually we will want to replace the flooring and appliances but for now it’s fine.  Some day we may also want to enclose one of the 2 balconies to create a screen porch, but again, that’s off a ways.  This is very exciting!

There is other stuff going on but I don’t really feel like sharing it here right now.  I had an emotional set back on Tuesday and am still processing through that.  I will say it has to do with some work stuff and the sooner I can find something else the better.  I have an interview tomorrow and one on Monday.  Hopefully this will lead to bigger and better things.  It can’t happen soon enough for me.

It is the middle of August and sadly the fingers of fall can be felt on each new day.  The tree outside our apartment has leaves that are turning red. The day does not start as brightly and seems ends earlier.  The nights are cool and good for sleeping.  The state fair is still a week away so we are guaranteed some hot and humid weather yet, but fall is making its presence felt already and I’m not ready.
