Move into my Apartment

At 72 you don’t get to have many firsts but today was one of them. I have my own apartment to decorate as I please and do anything I want when I want. My house is sold so I am liberated from that responsibility. It’s hard to explain it just feels different and it’s something that was on my bucket list for a long time. Here are some of the obstacles I came across along the way. Before packing up your things though, be aware that moving to a first apartment comes with a lot of responsibilities.

First I had to pack out the house but thinking I had lots of time and help I guess I thought it would never happen. I listed it on the 24th of the month and sold it on the 27th and in order for the sale to go through I had to be out in three weeks after the contract was ratified. Now I need to get moving to pack and do the repairs that came up in the home inspection. I can’t rave enough about my realtor without this particular realtor I don’t think I would have finished as fast as it did. I have a friend that had a three bedroom house and was kind enough to let me stay for almost a month while I hunted for an apartment. Rent can be all over the place for what you can pay. I found them from $987.00 for a one bedroom 830 sqft and up to $3,100.00 for a 1,000 sqft I used apartments.com I found a two bedroom apartment for $1,578.00 per month but it was at the end of the hall on the third floor but I almost took it, in fact, I put a deposit on it. Then I found the one shown in the photo a nice little Villa for 55 and older

I have a 2 bedroom apartment that’s 925 sqft it’s a bit smaller than I thought I would be happy with and I’m doing a lot of rearranging back and forth between the 10′ X 10′ Storage unit I still have. I had two ten by ten units and a five by five I’m hoping to stay with the one ten by ten until I find a house with my daughter then we can move what’s left into that house freeing up $156.00 per month for me.

Decarboxylation, and what it does

What is decarboxylation? What does it do?

Decarboxylation is a simple process during which cannabis is treated with heat or it is aged to activate its psychoactive and relaxing effects. This process also happens naturally when cannabis dries and ages. That’s right – despite what you may have heard, raw cannabis doesn’t actually contain any psychoactive compounds. The psychoactive ingredient THC only activates when cannabis undergoes heat treatment or when it dries and ages, though it’s important to note that the decarboxylation effect is much stronger when heated rather than when aged.
