How did you spend part of winter break? I spent part of mine apartment hunting with my oldest… in Toledo. Two hours away, in the middle of winter.
We looked at five different communities in three hours. Quite the marathon. And you definitely get what you pay for.
If you want a renovated unit with newer appliances, you will pay for it. Much to her dismay, the units do not tend to look like the photos online. But it was a good learning experience.
She has decided that she wants to live on her own so she can focus on classes. (That’s her story and I’m going with it.) Last year she had a horrible, inconsiderate suite mate in the dorm, this year her housemates aren’t what she thought they would be, so….
She has a lot to consider. Adulting is hard! At least she got a free lunch out of it, and we got to feel like needed parents again!
