The Stressors Of My World

I’ve lived in the new apartment for 10 days now and I have to say that I really, really love it. The community is great – gated, super dog friendly with a dog park right in the community (about a 2 minute walk from our door), fitness center, pool, nice courtyards with grills. Our unit is great – spacious (although I could stand to have a little more closet space), nice crown molding, neutral paint on the walls, decent carpet, good view from our balcony, and kick ass sunsets from our large kitchen window.

So far the staff is helpful and attentive. We’re liking it very much.

My only complaint overall is in the kitchen. The kitchen itself is a decent size and layout, decent amount of counter space, decent cabinet space. Overall, decent. The appliances, though…man do they need to be updated. Like, seriously.

My oven does not have pre-heat indicator. No light, no beep, not even a temperature gauge inside the oven so you can look manually. Clearly I’m going to have to get one of these IMMEDIATELY. Like, seriously, tomorrow.

I have learned that the oven runs hot. Definitely hot. How hot? Well of course I don’t know. 25 degrees maybe? 50 degrees? I can’t tell exactly except that everything I’ve cooked in it so far (chicken breast, meatballs, brownies) illustrates that my oven? IT RUNS HOT.

HP’s birthday is this weekend. All he wants for his birthday – ALL HE WANTS – is a birthday cake.

Amyella (pronounced Amy-ella) is a pseudonym for Amy Levitt, a fitness and health food fanatic and a beach girl at heart. She has been sharing her sometimes nonsensical thoughts and self-amusing stories online since 2002 and currently spends a good deal of her time wrangling her 90 pound Rottweiler and 60 pound Boxer. Which is quite a show.
The origin of the name Amyella.

Here's my deal. It's wicked exciting!
