Debbie and I don't care where you live - we are only excited that you are
coming.  Our dear friend Leah McCoy is moving to St. Louis, so I guess this
is what you call a fair trade.  All of us are blessed to have one another.

Hi Debbie,

I'd love something that is walking distance from the university, but I'm not
ruling out options that are further away.  I'm more concerned with getting
all my technology to fit.  I wanted to look into having an apartment by
myself.  I don't know...  Maybe that's unreasonable, but I doubt anyone
would want to room in a small space with me, my dog, and my noisy embossor.
Maybe I'm wrong.

Now I live in an apartment on campus, and my embossor stays in the assistive
tech office.  This is not the best arrangement, but there would not be room
for it in my apartment.

I looked on the website and was amazed at all the choices.  I didn't even
know where to start.
