Moving!

This week we packed up and moved house! We were able to pro-rate a few days early at the new place and overlap the contracts, so things weren't as chaotic as they could have been. We figured the price to allow ourselves three days to move was more than worth the cost of the therapy we would require after a stressful one-day haul! Moving five minutes down the road definitely has its perks...


So, here we are in the new place. It's still a work in progress, but because we were able to move in slowly, we unpacked more or less as we moved in. The kitchen was complete by the end of day one, and most of the other rooms are coming along slowly but surely. I keep shocking myself by knowing exactly where everything is. Am I really that obsessed with organizing?

The square footage in this place is bigger than anywhere we've lived (which isn't saying much). In our last place you could walk seven steps and see every room in the little apartment, and now it's an entire 26! The first day I felt like I was getting a cardio workout, because the unpacking required so much hustling to different rooms! But besides more space, the new place also has its quirks. We're fairly convinced that there is a lean to the floor, so that walking from the bedroom to the living room is kind of like ascending a hill.

And maybe that is why unpacking gets so tiring...

this is robin, not scott.
You're so funny, Mets. I can't wait to have a place that takes 26 steps to see every room! Enjoy the new place!

I love the picture of moving. Usually we just hitch the truck up to the house so we don't have to carry it. (I hope I'm not letting out the family secret).
