We decided to move in after wearing out our welcome at the Lewis house. Seriously, Kyle's family has been amazing letting us come and go while we figure out what's next. Eager to sleep in our apartment and get internet set up, Kandace loaned us an air mattress and some bedding to get us through week one. We requested our Zippy Shell and waited [very im]patiently for all our belongings to get here from storage in San Francisco.
Day one at the first place was pretty awesome outside of the fine we got for parking within 20 feet of a crosswalk. Oops. Pretty sure I've done that before in my life. Pretty sure I didn't get a ticket for it. When you're not working or bringing in income... $25 on a parking ticket is really just annoying.
Lola has really been enjoying the sun on our little deck. She didn't get much of this in San Francisco, unfortunately. She's making up for it by frequently scratching at the door and whining whenever she wants a little sun. Once I let her out she watches everything that goes on and growls when other dogs pass by on ground level.
As you know, I'm a relatively big fan of all things old... so, the fact that this apartment building was built in 1916 makes me smile all sorts of happy smiles. The wood floors are so amazing, and the tile in this place (although some of it has been recently installed) has me wanting to buy/rennovate/restore an old house in the avenues real bad.
Smiles all around-- our stuff finally arrived! Thank goodness movers were included in the deal. They wrapped up our door frames and stair rails and unloaded the 15' storage unit on wheels in less than 2 hours. It definitely made the price to get our stuff here worth it. Outside of some dishes cracking, everything arrived safe and sound.
Now I'll just take another week (or ten) to unpack our boxes and decorate this place. Seeing how I don't have a job though... I'm guessing this will go relatively fast.
