Last weekend, Michael and I moved out of our small, noisy old place, into a bigger, quieter new place. I flew home Friday evening. Michael went to pick up the keys, which Christy got me from the airport. When I got home we started packing up the remaining few items and decided to go check out the new place one more time. When we arrived at the new apartment, we learned the keys they gave us were the wrong ones. So we went to the office expecting to find a maintenance number or someone to let us in. We finally talked to the maintenance guy on call and it was going to be an hour before he could come and let us into the apartment. The guy had to cut us a new set of keys altogether. By the time we actually got into the new place, we had to turn around and go back to the old place to finish packing.
The next morning we woke to find snow on the ground. Not just a little snow on the ground, several inches of snow. We drove to go pick up our Budget Truck. I drove the truck back to our place to load the many boxes and tons of furniture. Thank goodness we had assistance for loading and unloading the truck. Michael had a guy from his office, Justin, and I had a girl from my office, Christy, to help us out. If it hadn’t been for them, Michael and I would still be moving in.
It took all day to get everything into the apartment, and took through Sunday to get everything out of the boxes. Finally we are settled into the new place and we love every second. It is nice to finally have a place for all of our stuff and a place for people to stay when they come visit. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large closets, dining area, large kitchen, computer nook, porch, and a fireplace.
I have included pictures of the new place, mainly because it is nice.
