Our 5-Tatami ApartmentOctober 9, 2007
So we moved into our new place. It’s filthy and it reeks of dog. We spent a couple of days scrubbing and dumping baking soda and coffee grounds, to little effect. I was despairing until I came home and the lady had outlined a plan for livability: we’ve arranged our essential stuff into the smaller bedroom, which is the only room that doesn’t completely stink, and we’re treating that as our tiny apartment. The rest of the place is storage until we can find a way to eliminate the smell, or until we can escape this place entirely.
