We Have a House….More Packing!!!!
We have a house in Vancouver!!!! A rental, mind you – but nonetheless an entire house!!!!
Not a depressing, dark basement unit or a tiny high rise apartment! No sharing the washer + dryer with other tenants! 1,200 square feet of just ours for an extremely reasonable rental price in Vancouver!!!! And yes, it is the little yellow house that I was praying we would get when we went apartment hunting a couple weekends ago.
The lease is signed, the security deposit check has been accepted!!!! Jeff + I are still not 100% convinced it’s ours until we walk through the door with the keys in our hot little hands. We are HUGE skeptics. Until then, we are cautiously excited!!!!!!!
At first, Jeff wasn’t entirely sold on the place because it’s in a sort of not-so-bright-and-shiny neighborhood. I was like, “Sucka, puhleeze!!!!”.
Yo, I’ve lived in Echo Park, Korea Town + downtown Los Angeles before they were all gentrified! Daily drug deals across the street + homeless people screaming to themselves at all hours of the day is de rigueur! This neighborhood is cake!!!! I can do somersaults down the street of this neighborhood (if I actually could manage a somersault, that is)!!!!! As my fellow ex Echo Park resident + good friend Debbie said, “It’s like a Silverlake bungalow.”. You said it, Debbie!!!!! In addition, my family who have known about all my sketchy past abodes all agree that Funky Town is the place where Jeff + I belong.
Definitely not excited to paint the entire interior, that’s for sure. Who would choose to paint the ceiling black?! Interior Decor Rule #1: if you want a small space to appear bigger, DO NOT paint the ceilings black!!!!
YIIIIIKES!!!! You can see me as a blur because I was like, “Get me the hell out of this offensive bathroom, pronto!!!”. I’m going to be importing + forcing my Angeleno senior citizen parents into slave labor when the painting begins. No rest for the retired!!!! Mwahahahaha!!!!!
I feel like all I ever do is pack, unpack, pack, unpack. The idea of our own home is AHMAZING!!!!!!!!!! I won’t have to pack for an ENTIRE YEAR!!! What a concept! Liberation!!!
I could get a job at Crate + Barrel with all my fragile item wrapping skillz!!! Hope everyone’s been well!!!!
