Quote of the day:
"Nothing exists separate from all the other things in the universe. Every person lives only by relying on the support of others."
~  Jeff Wilson, “Born Together With All Beings

Moving is a major undertaking, and for those of us who have too much stuff, it is a daunting prospect.  While I am not at all a fan of minimalist living, if you have to be easily mobile I can definitely see the allure.  I tend to stay put as a result.   But things at the Enclave are continuing to deteriorate and I feeling rather pessimistic today about the owners’ commitment to let the management company have adequate resources to manage the property effectively, so I am looking about rather casually to see what is available.  To start the process, I had to reflect on what I really want in the way of amenities: 
  1. washer and dryer in the unit – I have dealt with having to pay quarters to wash and dry clothes and I am not going to do that anymore. 
  2. be pet-friendly – I’m not getting rid of Panda
  3. high speed internet availability – many older buildings just do not have robust wiring.  In addition, I prefer FIOS to Comcast
  4. a garage – this was not on my list originally, but after having this luxury for over a decade, it has become a need
  5. either a second bedroom I can use for storage or onsite storage – even if I trim things down radically and clear out the Disaster Area, it seems to me that I still am going to have things like Christmas decorations and such that will need to be stored.
Location is going to be key.  I really don’t want to have to drive an hour to get to work for one thing [and we may be moving in the spring of next year] and I really don’t want to be an hour from my daughter’s domicile for another [or I might as well move to Florida and work for the House of the Mouse].  This limits where I am going to look.   And last, price is a consideration – a BIG consideration.  Right now my housing cost [rent and utilities] is around 46% of my gross income and fiscal prudence would have it around 30%.  Problem is that there aren’t a lot of places with those amenities in nice areas at that price point….

If Satan offered me the “right click and take into inventory” feature in what we call “real life” I just might be tempted …..
