My aching back
Yun and I bought a new apartment in Brooklyn. We spent a few weeks searching neighborhoods and looking at different places. There was an old factory that was converted into condos. It has views of all of manhattan. It's amazing. I boxed up our entire apartment. I bubble wrapped every painting and framed piece of art. Then I found someone to rent our apartment. I proceeded to paint the entire apartment for our new tenent. I had new air conditioning units installed. I basically broke my ass. One small problem. After our bid was accepted and we got the perspectus, our lawyer didn't like the deal. I won't go into the problems here but I can tell you my back was upset. The whole thing fell apart. Then I had to unpack everyhthing and put it all back together. But at least my apartment got painted. We rearranged everything so our old apartment seems like a new apartment but my aching back knows better. We are going to wait a while before we look again. Ouch.
