The move has been completed. We hand in the keys to the old place tomorrow and all that’s left to do at the new place is some unpacking of odds & ends. Ok, it’s a lot of odds & ends, and we’re not unpacking the decorative stuff until our new sofa and entertainment center have arrived. So it’ll still be a while before we can say we’re through and settled, but at least we’re HERE!
The new place is awesome. It’s a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom apartment with all rooms on one floor. The building has elevators so getting around is a lot easier for me. I have a parking spot right next to the elevator and our apartment is fairly close to it as well, so it works nicely. Also, we’re on the 1st floor (though not at ground level, since the garage is underground plus half a floor), so we can play with the dogs at night without worrying about our downstairs neighbors being bothered…because there are no downstairs neighbors! That also means we can do laundry and run the dishwasher whenever we need to.
The dogs have already settled in nicely and they loooove the place. Recon is so much more relaxed and Sage is doing what Sage always does…sleep a lot and antagonize Recon when she’s awake.
Geekling is another story. All this disruption plus some pretty brutal teething has set him on edge and he’s just not sure which way to go or what to do or how to do it.
The most epic of all epic things, though, is that the day we moved into the apartment, Geekling learned to WALK! It’s pretty awesome.
