You Say Goodbye and I Say Hello

Goodbye awful smelling hallway EVERY time I came home from work. Seriously. Did it have to smell EVERY day?

Goodbye burst of cold water in the shower every morning when our neighbor turned on his shower.

Goodbye freaky woman in the basement.

Goodbye having to park on Lyndale at the risk of getting your mirror hit by cars driving too close.


Goodbye living right next door to pizza Luce

Goodbye not having to shovel or rake

Goodbye not having to do our own repairs

Goodbye our first place together

Goodbye apartment we loved

Goodbye 34

Hello having to pay for heat.

Hello having to shovel and rake, amongst many other up-keep responsibilities

Hello being tied down to something

Hello many many more (and bigger) bills


Hello much more space

Hello deck AND porch!

Hello space for pinball machines

Hello sidewalk and yard


Hello garden

Hello kitchen with enough room for more than one person

Hello first house

Hello 4211

As astounding as it may be, I did not cry when reading your thoughts here. But it's cute that Mrs. Amos (mom version) did. Cool idea.

I've now been to the apartment and the house, and they aren't lying. There is space for more than one person in the kitchen.
