the secret lives of prothros.

new house!

Filed under: Uncategorized — prothro @ 8:28 pm

Evan and I are officially homeowners! Within a month, we went from just dreaming of a home of our own to looking, buying and moving. It was an absolute amazing blur. Currently, I’m in the living room overlooking the oak trees in the back yard and smelling the delicious aroma of fresh baked cookies for the monthly roommate cookie exchange. (I’ve already eaten two uncooked dough cookies, and of course I’ll have to eat one cooked cookie to make sure they’re good.) So basically, I’m sitting here basking in the sights and smells of our new house and feeling grateful that apartment life is now a thing of the past. As a tribute to the past, I’m creating a least of the top things I’ll never miss about Dakota Springs Apartments:


  • The guys who smoke…while in the swimming pool.
  • The constantly broken dumpster, leading to giant piles of trash welcoming us through the gates.
  • The tenants who are selectively blind to their dogs’ turds and the green bags provided for disposing of them.
  • Evan’s car getting towed from our own lot. And the management who thoroughly didn’t care.
  • The ongoing leak into the guest bathroom ceiling, that was “fixed” on several occasions.
  • Taking groceries/anything up or down a flight of stairs.
  • The young gentlemen (I’m using that word loosely) who lived at the bottom of our stairwell, listening to music with his friends.
  • The “luxury” amenities (i.e. move screen, pool table) that aren’t available after 5, just when Evan gets home to use them together.
  • The un-hot tub.

That is a long enough list to make me terribly happy every time I drive up to our perfect new house. By the way, just tried a cookie and they are delicious and terribly easy. Looking forward to Heroes and a little baked potato action tonight.

Last but not least, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JESSICA LYNN SCHMALE. One of my most favorite people in the world. Enjoy the big 2-5. I’ll be there sharing the quarter life crisis soon enough! Love you!
