This last weekend I spent the bulk of my time helping to paint the duplex. This was actually the first time I got to see it for myself as well. The living room was an terrible shade of blue, which took 3 coats of cream colored paint to cover, the other rooms were either green, blue, or tan, and they each got painted over with 2 coats. After the painting I helped Alex move most of his and Carly's stuff into his/their room. We took all the furniture and appliances out of storage, and assembled some new chairs tables and lamps.

The place is much bigger than I thought it would be. The 2 bedrooms are average, but the bathroom and living room are both impressive. I'm thankful for this since I will be partitioning a chunk of the living room off with room dividers to create my bedroom when I move in. Severn gets the other bedroom, he got dibs on it, that's why I'm stuck with the living room. Rend isn't bad either, I only have to pay $130 a month, so I'm very happy about that.

Hopefully now I'll be ready and able to move in within the next 2 weeks. I'll keep you all posted on the progress smiley1.gif . I'm not sure how well I'll adjust to not having my own real bedroom, so I've got my sister and her girlfriend out apartment shopping. I agreed that if they found a 2 bedroom place for around 200 per person....or less if possible.....I'd be willing to split the cost and move in with them.

So who know what the future will bring!
