Yesterday as we were running around like headless fowl, and answering dozens of apartment inquiries, I said to spouse that we could just "decide" that all of this was fun. It was the first time he laughed in days. We kept chuckling the rest of the day at the "fun" we were having.
We've shown the studio apartments downstairs to lots of people, and one of the first things people notice is that the bathroom is not a closed room. Consequently, we have had a couple of amusing remarks from the looky loos.
"Dude, if I have my girlfriend over, how am I going to take a shit?"
"I guess I can't go crap if my friends are over."
"Where's the bathroom?" (he didn't even notice the toilet in the corner, and then when we pointed to it, he gasped)
So yesterday, we went and bought rods and curtain panels to install around the toilets so that some semblance of privacy could be had. Sure, the noises and smells will still have unfettered access to the unit, but no one is going to see you wiping.
Then we showed the apartments and 4 people decided they wanted them. I guess enclosing the toilets was the magic missing ingredient. It won't be a done deal until signatures are given, but I'm hoping. Then just one more apartment to find renters for, and one problem renter (payer) left that we'd like to see get out.
I know I've gone on for weeks about this stuff, sorry, that's just my life right now. It'll change though, because if there's one thing you can count on, it's change.
