Octo-rennial Cleaning

Two weeks ago, I made a maintenance request to the apt complex for some plumbing work. They complied, and left a note stating I was in violation of my lease. The charge? "Housekeeping"

Great.

Well, though it is probably a paper tiger (the main complaint was piles of books that I had moved from my office when I changed jobs in 2006), I went to action. One weekend was dedicated to cleaning, recycling, and trashing. I threw out computer boxes that had not moved from my bedroom since the year 2000.

I'm in very good shape now, but I've decided to push it further and put some stuff up on Craig's List, the "local, easier eBay" website.

I've come to realize that this is a "pre-move" whirlwind. The big question: where shall I move?

@JLC. ha ha, very drole Miss Mover!

@k957. Yes indeedy... someone just challenged me on living in the banal Maryland Hts of all places. Alas, the bigger issue is to purchase or rent which gets really tricky

The city is doing well these days, esp. near Tower Grove park. man there are a lot of pubs and restaurants there
