I'm so in the housing market due to a story that involves an ice cube
and a bug that one day will be funny but now just really makes me want to move.

summertime and the living is easy

So I've lived in the same apartment for almost three years. That's a record for me - since college I'd moved pretty much every year, always looking for a new roommate, new perspective on things. Mostly I loved really loved that moment when the movers had left and the boxes were all sitting there in the apartment and everything was clean and bright and you could put things in order and it was all new and fresh. Bliss for a permanent-decision-phobe like me.

But I moved into this place about a month after I came back to DC and there really hasn't been a big reason to move. Its big and bright and sunny with some nice wood floors. Comfortable, workable. And cheap. Wicked cheap. Crazy cheap. Like $500 a month less than a lot of other things in the area. So even though its not everything I wanted I've stayed.

There are problems with it. One of which are the bugs. I keep a clean kitchen but bugs are definitely out and about. It's gross and embarrassing and frustrating. And almost funny.

summertime and the living is easy

So I was going to get some ice cubes yesterday and I look in the tray and see a bug on one of them. This is gross. Beyond gross. I immediately scrubbed out the freezer and scalded everything in it. But as I was up to my elbows in soap and hot water I had to laugh -- If it's a little bug, if that's finally the thing that lights a fire under my ass to move out and on from this apartment and the relative same-old I've had since coming back - well who would've known that something so small could do something so big.
