I want that Wednesdays

Well, now that it’s official (at least to my trusty readers) that I’ll be on the hunt for a new apartment soon, that’s all I want – I can’t think about anything else! But the July 1 leases aren’t posted on Craigslist and rental sites until the beginning of May, so all I can really do right now is put together a list (or three) of what I’m looking for…

Non-Negotiables:
One bedroom (No studios. I just have too much crap.)
Washer/dryer in the building (I am not schlepping my dirty clothes anywhere.)
Not a garden or street-level unit  (My spirit can’t take another break-in.)

Wish List:
Light switches (Living with pull strings makes me want to hang myself with one.)
Second-floor apartment (Not too high, but not too low.)
Hardwood floors (My vacuum sucks – no pun intended.)
Outdoor space of some kind (Yard or balcony, please.)
Regular-size oven and fridge (Not apartment-sized.)
Convenient parking (Preferably street parking without permits.)
Storage space and/or lots of closets (See studio note.)
Separate dining room and/or big kitchen (A home for my dining room table.)
Utilities included (The less bills the better!)

Dream List – in order of ridiculousness:
Pets allowed (That’s a whole different dream…)
Central heat/air (Window units and radiators be damned!)
Garbage disposal (It’s good for the environment.)
1 bedroom + den (I’d like an office/library!)
W/D in unit (So. Nice.)
Walk-in closet (I have a lot of shoes.)
Yard, Balcony and ROOFTOP deck!  (I love being outside.)
Covered garage spot (Global warming may deem this unnecessary.)
1.5 bath (This will never happen.)

So… let the search begin!
