Very early this morning Christopher and I left for Minneapolis to sign our lease and (hopefully) make a quick IKEA run for the sleeper sofa we found last weekend.
Since leaving our jobs two weeks ago, it has been an exhausting journey. Even though we were lucky enough to not have to pack or drive our things, we’ve done a lot of preparation and tied up many loose ends. I had my car shipped out to our new place, we changed our address, made many many many Goodwill runs and packed enough clothes, dishes, bedding and towels to last us until our stuff arrives (which should be about a week from now).
Watching our entire apartment get packed up before our eyes was so strange, but everyone who worked in our space did a great job. Now, I’m just anxious to get our stuff safely to our new home.
Now that all of the work is about done we can sorta-kinda relax-ish and focus on the newest chapter of our lives. I know the first things I want to do when we get settled in is take a dip in the jacuzzi and eat some cookie butter ice cream from Trader Joe’s.
We’ve had so much fun living in Kalamazoo for the past 10 years, especially the last 4 in our first place together. Also! It still amazes me how much we managed to fit into our one bedroom apartment AND how much dust we managed to create in that time. HA!
