6 months renting and loving every minute of it

Today, it's exactly 6 months since El Cheapo Movers loaded the truck and moved me from my house of 20 years to a rental apartment 42 stories up in the Tower of Power. I don't regret having made the move. If another expensive repair had come along, I think I...

Life above the clouds – Day 1
