I am officially in my new home now. Saturday Kick Back Dude got his friend and his friend's box truck and took over most of the furniture from my room and Girlie Girl's. We had been taking over smaller items over the last week or so, so once the big stuff was there we just needed to basically set things up and put things away.
As I couldn't, and didn't really want to, take much from the house, I was very fortunate that my dad and step-mom were able to help us quite a lot. They got us a refrigerator and microwave, which were delivered early Sunday morning. They also got us a little kitchen table and took us food shopping...we had NOTHING, but now we can eat! Yay!
The apartment is only one bedroom. That is what I could afford if I wanted to stay in the same general neighborhood as the house. So, the bedroom is for Girlie Girl and I will be bunking in the livingroom. Luckily, there is a really big closet for us to share. Another contribution my parent's made is this great sort of corner set for the living room. It is supposed to be in on Thursday or so. It will serve as seating, and it will also work as two beds. I was excited because it looks really nice and couch-y, but will not be the hassle of a fold-out couch or futon. Plus there will be an extra bed for when Handsome Lad wants to come camp out with us. I am hoping that in spite of the apartment's small size, having his own bed will make Handsome Lad feel welcomed at any time.
The only thing we need to be completely set is cable and internet hook-up. I have a service call scheduled for Friday, when I am off work. And that will be that!
I will be sure to post some pictures in the next few days, so you can see how the other half lives :-) This is all going to be a big adjustment for everyone, but I want more than ever to believe that I have made the right choice, not only for me, but for the whole family.
