I HATE apartments!

I know hate is a strong word, but I do I hate them. When I think of the many reasons I don't like them I try and put it out of my head and not think about it and be positive, but then something like tonight happens. I am sitting here minding my own bees wax and I hear a beeping noise. I ask Russ if it is coming from the tv and he says no. It is not to loud so I ignore it and soon it goes away. A few minutes later I smell smoke. Yep, they burned something in their kitchen and my eyes are still burning and hour later. Plus it stinks. These same people I can here going up their stairs and sometimes it sounds like someone is coming up my stairs and that really scares me. Here are some other reasons I hate living in apartments.
  • People don't like to pick up their dog poop. Even though there is a sign and bags for them to do so they don't. I don't have a dog because I don't want to deal with dog poop but I guess because I live in an apartment I have to. We have a neigh boor 2 doors down that always leaves dog outside (tied up) and after it poops brings it in and does nothing with the poop that is going all the way across the sidewalk. I witnessed this one day and later that night when I was going somewhere wrote "pick up your dog poop" with sidewalk chalk on their doorstep. It worked!
  • I love natural light so I want to have my windows open, but right in front of those windows is the sidewalk everyone walks down so it makes me feel weird. Huge lack of privacy and it drives me nuts.
  • they have crappy everything. Appliances, counters, you name it, it sucks.
  • Unless the carpet is new when you move in, it is gross.
  • Having your car so far away from your dwelling sucks, because when you have to carry and baby and groceries and lock the car and unlock the apartment door and go back for another load, it gets old real fast. Especially if there is snow.

I want my own house so bad! I dream about it ALL the time.


  1. Hi Debbie!! Where are you guys living now? I'm so glad you found my blog it was fun to hear from you!!

  2. Apartment living is not the best, but you will get through it!! These are the 'fun' times that you are going to fondly remember and look back on!

  3. Amen! There is so much I can add to that, but I wont. I have dreamed about owning a house since the day we got married. I am convinced it's never going to happen :(

  4. I hear you. Apartments are for sucks. But, at least you're semi stationary. We've been in 3 different states in the last few years and moving is even crappier than living in an apartment. But on the bright side, at least that guy picked up the poop.

  5. Come over more, I need more inspirations and your welcome to stay as long as you want!

  6. Keep on developing your online-ventures (ie own income), buy a place in a remote area with the earnings, and don't have any more children. Many children plus apartment equals utter disaster. With 1 child you'll have more money for that house in the future. I liked your blog by the way.
