Our Big Move
Our big news is that we have a signed contract with the apartment next door. Literally next door. I am very excited because that means I won’t have to buy tons of boxes and bubble wrap. Instead I can just take our stack of dishes and walk around the corner. I know that this sounds deceptively easier than it really will be. But we could not have picked a place any closer.
Henry and I have started looking at paint chips and arguing over colors. I know that we are supposed to paint several swatches on the wall and live with it. But we do not have a lot of time to make those decisions. I need to get the place painted and move as much as I can before he leaves for a week-long trip. Not exactly perfect timing. But maybe that will help prevent us from lingering and suffering through a simple move next door.
Let me know if you need help!
We may have some kind of moving party. Of course, I have no idea when. There are only a few large pieces. Other than that, it might be a little embarassing when people come to see how far we are moving, rather how close.
At the least, some house-warming party is in the near future.
