Okay, so the first craigslist posting for May 1 turned out to be totally unremarkable. It had normal-sized kitchen counters, which was a nice change of pace from my midget kitchen, but the rooms themselves were mini-sized. I don't think there's any chance that the queen-sized sleep number bed would go in either of those rooms, and by the time you got it in there, there wouldn't be room for anything else. The closet space was nonexistant throughout. I don't know if the current tenant is in the midst of moving out or if he just doesn't really live there in general, but it definitely didn't seem lived in. In fact, there was a food bowl and water dish for what looked like a small dog or cat, but the animal itself was nowhere to be found. There were, as promised, hardwood floors, but all the other woodwork had been painted. No porch. No built-ins. No dishwasher. No porch. We left with a definitive "Meh."
We've got another appointment tomorrow morning and this one seems much more promising. Check out the sunroom! I love the sun! We'll see what it has in store, and keep eyes open for other opportunities. It's March tomorrow!
