While there is still a bit more to do in the moving process, I am happy to report that the majority of the heavy-duty stuff is finished, and we’re pretty much nestled into our new place. All the main furniture is in place, the general layout is shaping up nicely, and the proportion of stuff in boxes to stuff out of boxes is decreasing slightly. Pretty much the biggest roadblock still in view is the issue with the refrigerator; the one that came with the apartment was pretty much a health hazard, but the landlord has agreed to replace it, so we’re just waiting on exactly when that is. And then I can go back to having milk in my coffee.
Most importantly, though, is the fact that we’ve gotten the cable and internet hooked up now, which means I’m back in business, and better than ever. Having a place to ourselves means no longer having to sacrifice my table to the collected shopping bags and vodka bottles of my previous roommates, and this morning has bee my first step into using it as an actual work station. The chair is a little rough under my butt, but that’s nothing a cushion can’t fix, and the distractions are limited to my cats who know they’re not allowed on the table, but, with the new place, they’re going to test their luck anyway.
I can finally get settled into my routine again, and this brings me such an intense relief. The move set me back a lot, so this next week is going to be playing a lot of catch-up and getting things back on track. But that’s the nice thing about a fresh start: it makes getting into the swing of things a little more exciting with a bright new perspective.
Have I missed anything exciting during my move? I’ve been keeping a light eye on things here and there, but my mind has certainly been elsewhere. What’s going on in the world wide web, anyway? It’s definitely good to be back.
