    We've been keeping in touch all year. His basic pattern is doing the cruise thing in the spring and fall, doing all the festival type concerts in the summer, and working in the studio during the winter on his next album. Yes, he has albums. I sing in some choirs and have sung with the symphony so I have a fairly decent musical talent but I still find the ability to create brand new music that never existed before to be pretty amazing.

    Yes 2013 is starting off pretty durn good. Are you doing a Holland America Alaska cruise? If so, there is a good chance of running into me. I'll be the star struck one singing harmony with the piano player every night.

    VERY lucky. Mmm, mmm, mmm.

    In other news, I think I have found the perfect apartment. It is in the heart of downtown San Diego but it is not one of the big shiny high rise buildings. I found this little townhouse style complex tucked away just two block from the waterfront. It has all the things I wanted about the big tower complexes like pool, hot tub, workout room, front desk security, etc. but it feels more home-y. Those big buildings can sometimes feel a bit like a Borg cube, just too many people per cubic meter.

    This place has two bedrooms plus a loft area where I think I'll put my computer. The living room has massively high ceilings complete with skylights. It's got tile floors and a gas fireplace in the living room. Since the gas is paid (I just pay electrical and cable) I can use the fireplace for heat and live there dirt cheap utility wise.

    There is a balcony off the living room and roof access off the loft area so I will be getting my vitamin D. The kitchen is not as big or awesome as I could want but it's enough for one.

    It's a condo development but I'm going to be renting from the owner with a property management company to attend to any broken faucets and such. The owners have said that they are OK with me doing any little upgrades I might like such as new curtains (I'm just going to take my current ones with me). They have no intention of ever living there, they only bought it as an investment property.

    The former owner made an unfortunate choice of paint in doing a couple of those "color accent walls". They did them in a really pale lavender which does not go with the Spanish tile roof and floors style of the building at all. They told me to feel free to paint the walls however I like. I have a friend who does painting so it should be pretty easy and not expensive and I get to choose the color.

    One of the thing that I had not liked about the former perfect apartment was the sort of gray/blue paint. I just don't do cool colors much. I like warmer earth tones.

    The property manager guy is really nice and he told me that, from the pov of the owners, I am the perfect tenant. No rowdy toga parties, pay my bills on time. So they are willing to put the start date off til April 1 which works for me.

    The location is incredibly convenient too, if my seafaring Piano Man drops in, this place is two blocks from the wharf. He will have times in between cruises where he only has a day while the crew load all the new supplies and get everything clean for the next bunch of tourists. I can think of nice ways to spend those days.

    Thanks! I just got back from signing the papers so it's official. Yay!

    I am SO tired of house hunting. This one just feels right. It's time to stop now.

    That does sound lovely, and it's so nice that you can make changes!

    I think the location is particularly perfect.
