We finally done it~!

We went and looked at the unit here in the complex – and mostly liked what we saw – but it had 2 big drawbacks….. first, I wouldn’t be allowed to have a grill on the patio ( I would have to go up the hill to a common area) and 2) they wanted a $3600 non-refundable deposit…..Uhmmmmm….no~!    The grill thing I could have probably worked around…. but that 3600 bucks was the equivalent of raising the rent by $300 a month….. so we politely declined the opportunity and reached out to the guy about the place we looked at yesterday on the beach, and accepted their terms. We put down first, last and security deposit and will move in on the 1st of April~!   Wa-Hooo~!! No more short term places~!! We will actually be  able to empty our suit cases and start living mostly normal again. I have already procured a nice big grill (and will be able to use it on my patio) for the place – so we are on our way~!

Best part of that is – we will now be able to show proof of residency and be able to get our USVI drivers license and actually become part of the island~! We can’t wait – but unfortunately – that is exactly what we will have to do for the next week…. is wait, as the place is not available until the first. We like it where we are at – but it will still be nice to have our own place……… and I’m sure our realtor Kat will be glad to be done putting up with us (for a while)  We still want her to get us first refusal on the place we really want when it finally becomes available~!   😉

We stopped by Blues backyard BBQ for a couple of celebratory drinks and I had me a Turkey Bacon Ranch sammich~!! Finally came back to the condo – to relax and finish off the season of Hell’s Kitchen that we have been watching.

That’s about it – so I’m gonna leave it here with you. I’m gonna put up a couple of pictures that I hope you haven’t seen yet then drag my tired butt off to bed……

Good night ya’ll — Thankx for stoppin’ in~!

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)

  1. I am so glad you do not have to do another short-term rental! I cannot wait to see your new place.

    1. Thankx Kat — I’m tickled you’re reading it.
      We’ll have to have you over for burgers and beer or something once we get in and settled. We hope to run into you long before then though.
