Apartment life has its advantages, especially when you really like your neighbors. I have been lucky that all the people in my apartment building are about my age and everyone works. We get along great and sometimes have cookouts in the courtyard over the summer. Its nice to know that if I need something like a little bit of milk or a couple scoops of coffee beans, that I can knock on the door of my one my neighbors and borrow it instead of having to get in the car and drive all the way to the store and back. We all help each other out that way.
But there is a cute little house not far from my apartments that just put up a “for rent” sign in the front yard. It looks like the people who used to live there have already moved out. I didn’t know them, but the house is cute and it has a little fenced in yard in the back where I can plant a garden in the spring.
Tonight when I drive by the house I think I will write down the phone number on the sign and give them a call. If the rent is not much more money than what I am paying for this apartment, I think I might be interested in moving.
