if we have talked recently, you know about my disdain for my current apartment, the beige palace. dark basement, big spider, ugly carpet, dumb ole chandelier, beige walls. complain, complain, blah blah blah.
last night, TH and i went for a walk around our neighborhood. in the Spring, capitol hill seriously looks like a movie set for perfect Spring movie. flowers blooming on every tree, bush, ground, baby, etc. it's so beautiful. while we were walking around, we realized how truly lucky we are to live in this neighborhood, and how our apartment is perfectly fine. so maybe we don't have natural light, but it's quiet and peaceful. maybe we have carpet instead of hardwood floors, but our feet are always comfortable. and you know what maybe i did see a spider the size of my fist a few weeks ago, but spiders are everywhere, not just in basements. so i can't really complain about that.
we decided we're going to suck it up and just enjoy the little apartment that we have. it's in a perfect spot and well, it works for us.
i'm just trying really really hard to not think about the 2 bedroom third story apartment two blocks away that we could have moved into for less than we are paying now with hardwood floors, big windows, and TWO BEDROOMS. just trying really hard not to think about it.
any tips for making a basement apartment more livable? we purchased some new lamps this weekend and are considering an area rug. oh, houses. who really even cares. haha.
