As I was finishing making pancakes for dinner, Cory washed the dishes... and then the sink plugged up. The disposal seems to be working, but the water evens itself out between the two sinks, which makes us think it's the drain. We undid the elbow and let the water out, but as we were down there we realized that there are holes in the pipes that have been covered with electrical tape. And now one of them is leaking, so I called and left a message for the landlord. (Of course there's no after-hours maintenance number.)

And then I spent an hour looking up apartments for rent. We still aren't on a lease for this place since last year's ran out at the end of August. I wouldn't feel bad leaving. So I have about 15 places to call tomorrow and see what I can find. It may work out pretty well... but it may not. So I'm not crossing my fingers (partly because it's going to suck to move in November).

We have at least one vacancy in our place. The new management is WONDERFUL! I just LOVE them.

2 br, 1 bath. Just off Ninth Street, across from Borders. Off street parking, onsite storage, large patios, and the best part... FIREPLACE!
All that, plus 22 1/2 feet of floor to ceiling window across the back, with sliding doors to the patio AND they are the quietest apartments I've ever lived in. (I've been here for ten years as of 11/18 and have rarely heard a peep from any of my neighbors.)

Ooh! How much? Do they take dogs?

Oh, I'm being a putz! I totally forgot about your dog! (I'm not all 'here' today.)

But... I think that the Marcadia on 11th Street (just across the street from me) allows dogs.

I'm so sorry! I don't know what I was thinking or why, in reality, I wasn't thinking.

It's OK! Even I sometimes forget I have to check that part out. :)

We don't necessarily have to move, it's just another drop in the bucket, so to speak. I'm just glad I don't have to replace the pipes myself!
