Were it not for toting groceries up and down stairs, confined spaces and low water pressure, I might consider making this apartment dwelling a long term deal. It's easy to keep clean and there is no yard to keep. And there is no one below us to hear the scampering of my children's feet every night at bedtime. Or the occasional melt-down over having no backyard and no playscape for exploration.
I caught this clip over at Lara's blog. It's awesome. And has me convinced to leave the violin and viola packed up for now. At least for the people next door who've already gotten a few "knock, knock hellos" from above mentioned children. If they complain, I'll just threaten Puccini. :)
