I’m heading to Minnesota tomorrow for a weekend-long stag party for my friend Gigi. I agreed to organize and host so I could selflessly “offer” my mother’s cabin for the festivities. When in reality that was my secret plan all along. Ha! I tricked you all into relaxing at a beautiful cabin in the woods on a lake in June! Take that!
I can’t even being to tell you how excited I am. It is the recipe for awesome (or disaster, depending on how you look at it)– 12 girls, a couple bottles of tequila, a large body of water. There are rules of course. Like life jackets after a couple shots. Don’t burn the cabin down. Wear sunscreen. Respect yourself and others. Everything else is fair game.
We’re currently trying to rent a room in our house (interested? e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org) and wading through the Craig’s List responses can get annoying. I reference some pretty specific things in our ad, such as we need someone for July 1st. I could care less if you are there are not on July 1st, but your share of the rent has to be. People who want to move in on any other date automatically get deleted.
I’m sympathetic because I was once a recent college grad looking for an apartment in DC, but I don’t want someone to move from their parents house to the dorm to my house. So no thank you.
Also from a scheduling view-point, what part of– The three of us still in the house all have 9 – 5 jobs, which makes the morning showering tricky with 1 bathroom. We stick to a weekly shower schedule roughly from 7:20 – 8:20AM, so this would be a great fit for someone with an alternative schedule/works nights— do people not get? I think that’s pretty clear, right?
