I decided to stay in the Center after my amazing landlord (at a great cost to her) installed new custom-made windows.
While I miss the charm of the old windows with their wooden indoor shutters, being able to get a good nights sleep is more important.
Originally, I wanted to move because of the noise and for more space. The noise issue in the summer will still be there (as I will want to open my windows ) but I can wear ear plugs like I have in the past. My landlord's architect came by to measure for a shelving unit in the kitchen area. That will help a lot with storage issues.
Living in such a small space I really have to keep clutter to a minimum. It's time for a spring cleaning marathon.
One of my favorite websites, Apartment Therapy, has some great spring cleaning TIPS for busy people.
I'm relieved I don't have to deal with the stress and expense of moving right now. My landlord is fantastic, which is something I don't take for granted. My landlord in L.A. was a nightmare. She was a horrible, cheap, dishonest women.
Also, the infamous G lives near by and one of my closest friends is moving to the area. I'm very excited about that.
Do you spring clean?
