apartment hunting

So here's an apartment I'm looking at. I think the realty place will call tomorrow if I'm approved... or not. But I know they called my current landlord already, so that sounds promising.

I'm hoping you can see how big the living room is... and that's a screen sitting over there, in case you can't tell what that is, although it must be for a bedroom window or something because it obviously wouldn't fit there.



The bathroom. Tub on the right, and behind that (you can't really see it) is the toilet... which I used while I was there. There was toilet paper and I had to go! Oh, and Rayleen, you can see the raised up part past the sinks where I think the (little) water heater might be?



I didn't realize this at first, but yes... it has two sinks. I'm thinking about labeling one "Guests" and one "Aimee", then when guests come out of the bathroom, I can ask in an accused manner, "Did you use my sink?!?"



And here's another view of the size of the living room... kind of. From the bathroom to the front door anyway.



This is the master bedroom... I think. They're both pretty much the same size. So picture the mirror image of this, and you'll know what the other room looks like too. Strange that they have linoleum in the bedrooms...



The kitchen is small. But those of you who know me, know that I don't spend a lot of time there... Just trying to look at the bright side. Hm. I just realized I'm going to have to put the microwave, coffee maker and espresso maker on the table. Where do I put my computer now?!?



My "backyard". It's actually a park. That's where the baseball diamond is, behind my place.



Well, it's not too bad anyway, especially for $485... right?

What park is that? What part of town is it? I'm wondering if I'm familiar with that area...

Brianna, yeah it's a little bit cheaper. :) But so are wages... grrr!
Faythe, I think it's on the other side of "the 5", from where you're thinking... It's close to Pioneer Parkway and Main, kind of. I went to look at it during the weekend and it was super quiet. During the weekday however, there was a lot of activity going on. I wish I could remember the name of the park...
