    The latest update about Bill16

    Well my friends, I'm both excited and scared. As soon as next month I may be signing a 1 year lease on my very first appartment! So I'm praying that I don't make any mistakes in this, because I will be stuck with it for at least the next year.
    I am impatient to get started in moving in, since it will take a pretty long time getting it all moved and put away. But I know I will be home sick for my home here, full of memories of my wife everywhere I look. But staying here isn't an option for very long, and I don't want to be evicted and rushed to move with nowhere planned to go.

    The appartment I found is a two bedroom, and so I will be able to setup my studio in the spare room. I won't be left with much money every month, but it would be that way here too if I stayed. There are some more upsides, that make it an attractive choice of an appartment. First it has a heat pump, so I will be warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Second the exlectricity is less on average by quite a little bit than it is here! Third water is free! Fourth is it is close to here, so I won't have to learn my way around a new area! Lastly I only have one neighbor built in the building in this duplex, where as here I have one on each side with just a wall between each of them and me!

    The appartment is smaller by far than my home here, but I admit I don't really need so much room anyway. My home here is heated by fuel oil, and even if I could stay I couldn't afford the fuel oil and would get pretty cold next winter.

    I imagine this is boring to alot of you, having likely done this many times. But for me this is a very big change.

    Before I move I need to sell something to get the cash to buy a microwave, since I use one pretty much daily and mine is close to being shot. I'm going to try avoiding selling our wedding rings, but it may come down to that if I don't find something better soon.

    Well I will try to update this thread as new things happen my friends, so you'll know how I'm doing! I'll even eventually post photos of the appartment that I hope will soon feel like home to me.

    The only jewlery I have that I might end up selling is a gold band or two. The silver rings won't net much money, so I doubt I'll bother with those.

    I already sold the one ring with diamonds to help me come up with the security deposite, and pay a few bills.

    I'm just selling to a pawn shop, and so it needs to be easy to sell and worth a couple hundered from them.

    I'm not a pro photographer. I just play one on TV.

    I think everyone should follow and do. Please do not assume we know what's in your camera bag, I left my magic mind reading hat at the repair shop because it does not work past my computer screen.
