Thanks so much to everyone who weighed in on my apartment choice. While I do love that huge, light, bright and pretty apartment, I realized that if it was exactly the right choice at this time then I wouldn't have spent about twelve hours stressing about it. So I am going to withdraw my application for now and keep looking. I don't want to be at the very top of my budget in a place where I ignored some issues about which I could be unhappy. Maybe I'll be back to that place again. Part of my decision was that I just don't want to try to coordinate all the moving stuff during June; this is our second busiest time of the year and that needs to be a priority.
Plus with that apartment I wouldn't have extra money in the future to do things like escape to the beach this weekend. Since none of my friends were willing to go to Vegas with me instead. So I'm going to kick back with my oceanfront view room, continue my pursuit of the best clam chowder and the best razor clams, and mull on some of the other places that might meet my needs. Without giving me an ulcer or completely emptying my pocketbook.
