There’s a possibility now that I might be able to move back to Chicago sooner than I thought — and live in a place I can actually afford.
Looking through the ads on Craigslist today, I saw a few rooms for rent — in decent neighborhoods — at very reasonable prices.
Unlike last August, when I had to be out of my landlady’s condo by the end of the month, and I could find no viable options for staying in town, I don’t have a real deadline here. So I can keep looking, and wait until just the right situation comes along.
I find much to like about living in Cleveland — particularly Lakewood — again… but I really miss Chicago and all it has to offer.
