The life of a porn addicted housewife.
Saturday, October 29, 2005
Today I found one that is pretty much everything we wanted in a rental.
It is a cute little brick house in a nice mixed neighborhood. It has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a garage for Ap0k’s girlfriend, new paint, carpet, and tile throughout the house, and all new windows and blinds. It’s only 4 miles from where Ap0k works so I will be able to transport him back and forth to and from work. That way we won’t have to get another car right away. It’s also right around the corner from a giant mall, a Walmart, a Sam’s Club, a Target, and every other store and restaurant you can think of. Best of all, it allows cats so there will be no problem bringing Tippy up here.
Barring anything odd popping up, we should be signing the papers on it tomorrow morning.
The guy who owns the house seems very nice. Just a regular guy, if you know what I mean. He seemed happy that we could afford the house. I thought that was odd until he told me that most people who apply either have no job or only have $100 in the bank.
We won’t be able to go back to pack until Wednesday at least. Ap0k wants to drive down with me, but he has a big meeting on Tuesday. Argh! Stuck in the hotel for another 4 days.
I’m getting a much better feel for the area. I drove around a bit today and had no troubles. Of course I never leave without my map!
Living in a hotel is not all wine and roses. Today I had to go upstairs to do the laundry. It stinks up there! The 3rd floor is the smoking floor and it smells like a giant ashtray. It still seems SO odd to have a smoking floor in a hotel and smoking sections in restaurants. In Florida smoking has been banned almost everywhere. If you were to light up in a restaurant they would spray you down with a fire extinguisher! I smoke, but since Ap0k doesn’t we are in a non-smoking room. I have to go out, down the hall, down the stairs and outside if I want a cigarette. Bah! It’s cut down on my smoking though. I never thought that I would say it, but I miss cooking. Restaurants are great, but not all of the time. All we have in here is a microwave. There’s not a lot you can do with that without stinking up the entire floor. I do like having Ap0k in the same room with me all the time though. He goes to bed a lot earlier than I do, but it makes me happy when I glance over and see him across the room.
I think we may be going back to Newport tomorrow night so that I can take pictures of the skyline to take to my daughter. If I do, I will post the pictures here too.
I am getting much better with the keyboard and pad on this laptop. The keyboard is just smaller than my desktop one so I am constantly hitting the caps lock key instead of the shift key. The pad was giving me fits, but I have just about got the hang of it. It’s funny how hard it is to get used to new things. You become so used to what you normally use that you do it without even thinking. Toss something new in the mix and it throws you for a loop.
