i bought a new coat and every single button has popped off. since it's 20 degrees below zero outside (or so it feels), it doesn't help that my coat does not close. every. single. button. it's almost comical - i have a purse full of brass buttons and i'm freezing.
in other news, we have the apartment if we want it. apparently the owner wants to have a "sit-down" meeting with us before we sign the lease, which worries me since we are signing the lease through a management company. doesn't that seem weird? and the management company also told us this morning before we signed the lease, we should know that the owner (he lives upstairs) gets up really, like really early (3-4AM!) and the kitchen is right above our bedroom. so i can't figure out what he is doing in the kitchen that would wake us up in the morning, but apparently that is a huge concern of his. this is all just weird information that you usually just deal with after you move into a place. so now we have to consider if the good apartment, location and price is worth a potentially crazy neighbor.
do you have any sage wisdom for us?
