What I Want
A non midget-sized apartment. I want a place with a real kitchen, with a normal sized fridge, oven, dishwasher, and some counter space. I also want shelves, cabinets, a decent sized sink, and a range that I can cook on without shifting the pots creatively.
I want washer/dryer hookups, and a washer and dryer that can handle more than two pairs of jeans each load. I want a linen closet, and a walk-in closet that I can hang my hoopskirts in. I want thermal strips on my door, and double-layer windows so I don't freeze sitting within ten feet of the window. I want room for a real ironing board, and a place to store my vaccum cleaner.
I want shelves for my books, a pantry for my food, built in lights for every room, and a place to put my pots and pans. I want a shower that I don't have to duck to get in. I want a bathtub that drains properly, and big enough to take a bubble bath in. I want a place to keep my towels, my toilet paper, my shampoo and conditioner, and all those feminine products I need...lotion, deoderant, Q-tips, toothbrush and toothpaste, etc.
I want room in my living room, I want a shelf for my videos, my DVDs, my CDs, and another shelf for my software. I want a place for my oil lamps that my cat can't get to. I want a cabinet for my herbs, my essential oil stuff, my candle making stuff, my soapmaking stuff, and all the equipment that goes with it. I want a place where my husband can keep his chemistry stuff, his toolboxes, his projects.
I want places to put my candles, my soap, my incenses, bath salts, bath bombs, ritual oils, perfumes, teas, shampoos, conditioners, costumes, handkercheifs, hats, bags...everything I make. I want a place to store all those glass containers that I reuse. I want space!
Can you tell I'm trying to clean my apartment?
