Hubby and I moved into our current apartment back in May. We moved in very quickly, in fact, we were not even planning on moving at the time. We were unhappy at our old apartment though, so when we heard about this apartment being available for rent…we immediately grabbed the opportunity without a game plan. And as we did not have a lease at our old apartment, we were able to move into the new apartment within the month.
It was a great move for us. We did not move far, in fact, the new place is well within walking distance of the old place but as we are no longer directly in town it is much quieter so the cats are free to go outside. It’s bigger overall so we’re able to spread out much more. And our neighbor is a very quiet woman…who is also conveniently deaf. Our last neighbor was kind of a psycho who frankly, scared me a little….amongst a laundry list of other quirks that made me hate our old apartment.
So we moved into this new place very quickly. At the time, Hubby was picking up a ton of hours at the wine shop and I was in the process of switching jobs…going from working graveyard shifts to a more normal schedule. So neither one of us had much time to dedicate to putting the apartment in order. We had virtually thrown our crap into whatever storage containers and boxes we could get our hands on and packed without much organization, and unpacked in much the same style.
That was eight months ago, and while our apartment is in some semblance of organization…we could do a whole better. I didn’t make any formal resolutions this year, but I definitely think that this is going to be my next project to keep me occupied during the winter. I have the time, thanks to my unconventional work schedule so hopefully I’ll be able to implement this. It’ll be a slow process, which is okay. Thankfully there’s only five rooms in the apartment…one being Hubby’s man cave which I don’t care about too much (there’s a door that I can close and ignore!). First week up will be the kitchen as it’s the room the drives me the most crazy. I’m still trying to figure out how two people accumulate so many dishes!
