Today I went to the 55+ complex that I call Motel Hell - because it looks like a reform school for old women- to check out their “market value apts.” Got the same old story about the waiting list. One day they will have a vacancy but they have no idea when - but it sounds as if someone will need to move to assisted living or …
Decided to go next door and check out the place with “luxury” apts sign. Once I decided that seven steps was not going to be an obstacle, I filled out the one page application and was approved in about 10 minutes. I have a move in date.
But here folks is the kicker - at the all ages place I get better design, a wooded view from my patio, AND my overall cost of living is lower than at Motel Hell. Some of their amenities that are included in the rent would cost me more at Motel Hell. For example, at MH, I would need cable to have access to the net. In the more expensive complex I can have Internet Access without having cable. That is -$100 from my cost of living.
At Motel Hell you can have a dog that weighs 20 pounds or less. Yea my friends know my my position on that. My car has already been attacked by a Doxie. I don’t dislike the breed but I recognize that they were breed to go down into tunnels to fight and kill badgers. My friend who rescues them had to reimburse her rural neighbors for an entire brood of laying hens. Her four Doxie killed them all.
The place that I picked allows larger dogs. As soon as I am strong enough, there will be an older rescued dog living with me. She will probably be a bad old girl too! I am partial to Labradors.
Move in date is in June. No clash with my classes and plenty of time to keep getting rid of stuff. Do I sound stronger already?
