 We DID get the apartment!  It's one on the second floor of what looks like a two story building -- so, balcony!  And no one stomping around overhead!  It's a one-bedroom unit, only a little smaller than the one we're in now -- which, honestly, is rather large for a one-bedroom, even by mid-western standards.  

From google street view, it looks like the balcony looks out over a sort of yard between our building and the next building in the complex, and there are lots of trees in between.  That's going to be wonderful -- I've always wanted a balcony.  I can put plants out!  And hang lights, and have a little table -- it'll need to be waterproof, but that's cool.  There may or may not be a skylight?  It looks like there is from the google street view shots, but the interior pictures I've seen don't show it.  Either way, it looks like a nice set up.  No elevator, probably, but on the second floor that's not a big deal.  We aren't taking any furniture that would make that a problem, anyway.

There's a bike trail -- the Interurban trail -- that I could take to work.  I'll need to buy a bike, but that's an exciting option.  I could also walk that -- but a 15 min bike ride would be better than a 45 minute hike.

There's a yarn store about a 6 min drive north!  That's fantastic!  I need to not go there for a while, because I'm going to be broke~!
