So, as of yesterday, Tirithien and I have an application in to a very nice apartment complex on the south side of Toledo. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with many oak trees, there's a swimming pool, and the place just has a very wholesome feel to it. The apartments themselves are lovely-- not incredibly fancy, but very nice. And each unit has its own washer and dryer!
Laundry has been one of the banes of my existence since I started living in apartments. Lugging the basket up and down so many stairs... and I really don't do all that well with stairs even when I'm not carrying anything. (I guess it comes of having not grown up with stairs; almost no houses in Florida have them.) And where I am now, I actually have to go outside to get to the door that leads to the laundry room. Which is definitely NOT fun in the deeps of January.
Plus each individual building has locked entry. No more strangers on my porch at 1 AM!
So, keep your fingers crossed that we will be approved!
