Just a quick catchup.
I have put in an application for an apartment I like but cannot afford. I will be house poor. Move-in date 10/7 but they will give me until 10/21.
I notified my old apartment owners that I had been approved and wanted the money. They said I am the first to apply for the moveout package and they still don't know how they are going to disburse the funds????
I notified the new apartment owners that I would be moving between the 7th and 21st because I had to give 30 days notice so the 20th will be m-day at the latest. However, I told them that if I didn't have the funds from the old owners I couldn't afford to move and will be staying for a while longer.
I am also on the waiting list for a brand new Senior apartment not that far from here. I think half of my complex is on that waiting list. It is a smallish complex of 114 apartments and I am afraid I will be too far down the waiting list to get an apartment. The price is much cheaper but I don't like hotel-looking apartments.
The apartment I have been approved is near my daughter and nearer my sister than I am here but further from my son by a good bit.
One thing irking-me-to-bits is the dog policy. They are charging fees of $200-$600 deposit and monthly rent add-ons of $10-$25.
Deposits in general are outrageous also. I don't know why I thought rents and deposits would be going down after Covid.
You can drive yourself crazy if you fight the system and I am determined to keep calm and "Keep on Trucking" if you remember this slogan from the 60s/70s.
Buddy is staying chill.
More later ...
