so the move was long and arduous. It literally took 3 days and we still have 20+ boxes of books to unpack, bookshelves to put up, etc. while our commute back and forth sucks a bit more (non-continuous sidewalks, poorly lit, almost all residences and no one around), our new apartment is much, much nicer. we have an office and a dishwahser and a washer & dryer in our apartment and that is so, so nice.
I’m afraid we’re going to get used to having so much space and then move to the city in 5 months and move into a much smaller space!
