I Am Happier in an Apartment

I was not sure what I was going to do. My landlord told me just the other day that I am not going to be able to renew my lease. I want to be angry over that but it is probably a blessing because we don’t really get along.

Enjoying Our New Apartment at Cedars of Edina in Minnesota

Anytime you move from one apartment to the next, you want it to be an upgrade. Who wouldn’t? You want your next apartment to make up for any shortcomings of the last place where you lived.
