September 6th, 2010


I just now discovered that I can’t see out the peep hole in our new front door. How am I supposed to spy on our neighbors now? I had to stand on my tippy toes to see out our last one, but at least I could see out. I can’t even get my forehead close to the new peep hole, let alone one of my eyes.

And spying on my neighbors was one of my favorite hobbies too…

the whirlwind

We moved!

We moved from our one bedroom apartment to a two bedroom apartment in the same complex. We LOVE our new apartment so far.

We got the keys to our new apartment last Tuesday and it’s been a little crazy ever since, but things are finally starting to calm down.

Things we are loving:

  • the HUGE front room
  • the two bathrooms
  • the bigger, not walled-in kitchen
  • the storage area outside
  • the bigger closet
  • only walking up ONE flight of stairs!

Things we are getting used to:

  • having upstairs neighbors
  • our new washer/dryer set (they are larger, which I like, but the washer doesn’t have a gentle/delicate cycle and the dryer only dries on high heat and takes a cycle and a half to fully try a load)
  • the smaller second bedroom (we were hoping it would be a teensy bit bigger than it is)
  • not having Matt’s computer and large monitor in our front room to watch movies/TV on (we just might have to buy a TV)

Right now we are trying to get rid of all the boxes and back to a semi-normal routine as fast as possible.

Brag moment: I fit 119 of our books on our two-shelf bookcase. This took a lot of organizing, re-organizing and a lot more time and energy than it sounds. They are very meticulously organized by topic, place in the “cannon,” author,  height, and publication date. It’s not as perfect as I would like, but they are all on there and I’m forcing myself to deal with the small imperfections I see.
