Anyway...finally my lease is up in the apartment which is about 1/4 mile from WH. Me and my daughter are taking a (very, very small) apartment in the city! I will be 3 miles from work only, there are tons of cafes and art galleries and everything to walk or bike to.
WH thinks I'm nuts for wanting the city life, but I'm excited. Not to mention being far away from him.
Yes its only about 600 square feet! So, maybe I am nuts. But its a new lifestyle and life.
Enjoy the city!
And holy shit do I love it! I'm within walking distance from my favourite places, and a major bus station that can get me anywhere else in the city. When the kids are here, at bed time we all go to the balcony door and say, "Good night, my city" before closing the curtains.
I should confess that I do the same when they're not here, and sometimes even follow up with, "I love you."
The Princess would never survive in this setting. She thinks this is me trying to make the best of things, but it's really me appreciating the best of things. She once told me that "downtown people" scare her.
And now I am downtown people. Boo!

Been practicing a minimalist lifestyle anyway and this propelled me deep into simplicity!
With less junk around me, I can focus on work, night classes and hopefully paint again. Get into screen printing maybe,
Having a very inexpensive apartment takes away a lot of stress too. I worry less about things like getting laid off, unexpected expenses popping up...
I need some major relaxation, some fun, and a change.
