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.
