First of all, thank you all so much for your wonderful words of advice regarding the update of my search for a new home.
Alas, today is one of those days. I allowed myself to sleep in and then it was numerous issues and interruptions. Well, one of them was of my own doing. You see, it included the discovery of a gorgeous “two-bedroom” apartment close to the Public Garden in Backbay, Boston.
I mean, check out these windows! And, the fireplace, too. Plus, it’s a real working fireplace!
But, on the other side of the fireplace instead of matching bookcases, lives the kitchen.

What the freakin’ fugly fork? They can’t be serious. You can’t even see how elegant the rest of the room is.
And, what IS behind that door? I bet it’s the skeleton of the contractor.
The kitchen shockeroo came after my initial excitement at finding this gem. After inquiring, the agent sent me this and some other images. And, then I also found out that it’s a one-bedroom even though the listing says two bedrooms.
I need at least two bedrooms for when y’all come and visit me. haha
Ya know, I think I’m getting past the stage in life when I expect visitors to be happy sleeping on the living room sofa.
But then, I spoke to my fabulous financial advisor, Gene Lonergan, and he thinks that it would be more prudent to buy rather than rent. That is, from a financial standpoint. Of course, I would need to check out the places in person.
Now, I know that I don’t HAVE to do two blog posts every week. However, there are so many old ones that need updating. So, that’s what we’re doing for this post.
And, one of my favorites is the 20 Funniest Laurel Home Blog Posts.

And, I love your sense of humor!
Gosh, thanks, Guys!
