Leaving it behind

Sometimes I catch myself thinking of all the things I'm going to miss about where we live.  The list is as follows:

  • Close to pretty much everything (the mall, Taco Bell, Target, the path in the river, etc.)
  • The huge mirror in the bathroom that doubles as 3 medicine cabinets.
  • Cleaning doesn't take very long.
  • Carlos aka Zoey's favorite person besides Sam.  It's true, she loves Carlos more than she loves me.
And that's about it.
More often than sometimes, I catch myself thinking of all the things I won't miss about where we live:
  • Laundry closet (it will be nice to have a whole room just for laundry)
  • Close to a road, which equals people who are competing for loudest car or motorcycle in AZ driving by at all hours.
  • Dog poo.  Everywhere.  Sometimes Zoey tries to eat it because she is yucky.
  • Garbage.  Everywhere.  Sometimes Zoey tries to eat it because she is yucky.
  • The pool that is usually murky and closed.
  • Walking by sunbathers at the murky pool.  Awkward.
  • Not being able to ride my bike as often as I would like.
  • Every single person I walk by wanting to play with Zoey when it is obviously time for going potty, and not playing.  They just don't seem to understand.
  • Humongous roaches that come with the humidity after a rain.  One got inside somehow and was crawling around the ceiling in our room like it owned the place about a week ago.  I feared for my life.
  • Having to take the pup all the way to the grass to go potty.  I can't wait for a doggy door - it's at the top of our list of things to buy for the new house (equally ranked with a fridge, oven, washing machine and dryer).
  • Zero space for anything.
  • About 3 feet of counter space in the kitchen.  Not even an exaggeration.
  • Living on top of another person's home.
  • White walls everywhere. So boring.
  • Vertical blinds.
  • Only having one window and the sliding glass door to the balcony to let sunlight in.
  • The fact that the only way to the only bathroom is through our room.  Not visitor friendly.
  • Assigned parking.
  • Limited parking if husband is in the assigned space.
  • Tiny parking spaces.  The passenger side of my little car has some scratches from living here that I am not happy about at all.
  • Sharing a wall with neighbors.
I guess you could say I'm excited to move.
