It’s amazing how much promise a new home can hold. I love my new apartment. Absolutely love it. It’s bigger, has washer/dryer hookups, and NICE NEIGHBORS! Omg. I met my immediate neighbors today- two very nice college girls, who love kids and offered to babysit anytime I needed it! We had a wonderful conversation, and it was so fabulous I nearly cried. Seriously. You have no idea how isolated I am in the ghetto. The only white girl around. Hell, I’m one of only 3 white people period (and ostracized because of it). No one speaks English, and those that do use it to sell drugs. Normal neighbors. What a relief.
After posting the above entry, I decided to take one more load of stuff over, and met 3 more of my neighbors! Everyone is SO NICE! The couple across from me has two children, a 2 year old boy and a 6 year old girl! The kids hit it off right away while the mom and I chatted, and then hugged each other when it was time to leave. Everybody say awww! This is so freakin perfect. I’m so happy!
