Outside, whoever landscaped the back yard failed to put any burlap or such down before they sculpted the pond basin, so now it is a forrest of weeds I am unwilling to tackle. Then there is all the other little nit-pick stuff. And the ants, who are mostly in remission at the moment as far as the kitchen goes, but I did find some in the utility room yesterday so I've got bait there now as well.
So we are back in the market for a 3 BR apartment, somewhere in the city. We're not going to restrict ourselves to West Seattle this time - in fact we were talking about looking at things downtown around First Hill, where I was living before I moved in with uly & cjot. A plus of that neighborhood is it is where the bulk of both our medical providers are located (Swedish & the Polyclinic) so that would eliminate a two-bus commute for us.
It's a little premature to be hunting really hard at the moment, but it's about the right time to start getting on waiting lists, I imagine.
