After much debate, mind changing, pros and con’ing (is that even a word?) we have made the decision to put our condo on the sales market. It is a decision that is bitter sweet. I love where I live. I love my view, I love my bathroom, I love my building and I love our neighborhood.
But being in a condo has its limitations.
–Last year when Charlie and I were car shopping I really wanted to explore buying an electric car but we couldn’t because there was no place in our building to charge an electric car
–I’ve been wanting to try many renovations and decorating projects but I have no place to do them
–I really want an ice cream maker but I have no place to store it.
–I really want to get my hands on the best nasal filters for allergies available right now.
–13 flights down, 13 fights up (albeit in an elevator) EVERY.SINGLE.TIME the dog needs to go pottie …RAIN OR SHINE OR SNOW OR SLEET
–I’d really like a scooter but we only have one parking spot
So it’s time, time to move on from a perfect condo in Chicago. But first things first, it’s time to get our condo in shape for showing. The next few weeks are going to be hectic and I’m sure our place will never look better once we are done. But I can’t continue to think how much I’m going to miss our views. I especially love it during a good summer thunder storm.
Where else can you see a storm roll in and roll out like this?
