The New Apartment

Saturday, I signed the lease for my new apartment. In about three weeks I’ll be moved in. There’s a lot to do before then. There’s a lot to pack but there’s probably even more that I’ll just throw away.

The best part is that I can get away from my downstairs neighbor. Everyday she gets a little crazier. When she first moved in, I thought she was very friendly, and she didn’t have much money so I did a few nice things for her. Every time I did something nice she took advantage of my kindness.  Then I realized the nice woman I’d originally met was not so nice. She complains about everything and never sees any of it as her fault even though she brings a lot of it on herself. I’d give examples but I don’t feel like typing all night long: I’m just glad to be moving away from her. She’s a leech.

With my new apartment, I’ll be buying some new furniture. I know I need a new couch. And since I’ll have a dining room, I probably should get a table. A person in town has a couch that converts into a bed that looks nice. I plan to go and check it out. They only want $25, so I want to see it before I buy it. It will go in the guest bedroom/office. I’m really looking forward to this move.

A new year and new changes! And it will help your mental health to be away from your (soon to be former) neighbor.

Good News for 2020.

Be careful about the hidebed couch. Sometimes it could be infested with bugs.
Could be a good buy if it's in good condition.

For your things that you'll get rid of, do you think that you could give them for charity so they wouldn't be waisted in garbage. Here in Montreal, we take care to recycle old stuff to avoid wasting good stuf that could help other people.

For your EX lady neighbor, I had such a pain in the ass old lady neighbor many years ago and I did the same as you. That lady was complaining to our landlord all the time and not only about me but all others in the building of 14 appartements.
She even sent me the police two times because I was making some «noise» in the middle of the afternoon. I was just listening to classical music and not that loud.

Hope you'll be in peace in your new place.

Congratulation on the new apartment!
Make a clean escape from the energy vampire.
She might be a contributing factor for headaches.

Joe, your landlord must have responded faster than you expected. We all look forward to updates about the move. Roderick
