Tomorrow we are off to Seattle to look for apartments. I've been shopping online but it's very disorienting when you are so far away - the neighborhoods don't mean too much to me and the street names mean even less, and we are hazy on what kind of price range to search in. We've decided to wait until we get there to make appointments (we are staying until Wednesday so should have enough time) so that we can drive around and get familiar with things. We are hoping to scout out some good Mexican and seafood too (maybe even some Mexican Seafood!). We have been wondering whether to buy something ever since we started thinking about moving and have changed our minds almost every week. For now, we must rent - we need to learn the city and my Studly Hubby is still finishing school and job-hunting in a new field - 3D animation. Meanwhile, we've learned that renting is a little more expensive than here (at least in the good neighborhoods) and buying is a lot more expensive than here (although possibly more profitable), and the weather seems much milder than here and a bit rainy.
If we have any extra time while we're there I may go shopping for a raincoat and umbrella. And maybe a new flannel shirt. I need to start molding myself into the new "Seattle J-Funk."
