settled for now


Were it not for toting groceries up and down stairs, confined spaces and low water pressure, I might consider making this apartment dwelling a long term deal. It's easy to keep clean and there is no yard to keep. And there is no one below us to hear the scampering of my children's feet every night at bedtime. Or the occasional melt-down over having no backyard and no playscape for exploration.
I caught this clip over at Lara's blog. It's awesome. And has me convinced to leave the violin and viola packed up for now. At least for the people next door who've already gotten a few "knock, knock hellos" from above mentioned children. If they complain, I'll just threaten Puccini. :)

Transition time is so hard. Hope you survive.

I'm glad you're good for the time being and hope that it all goes well with the next move.

And yes, that clip is very apropo for your situation! I laughed out loud thinking of you threatening your neighbors with violin practice. :)

I am glad you are feeling settled. I like living on the bottom floor of apartment buildings so my kids don't bug anyone else, BUT I also don't like hearing the noise from upstairs. Hence we are on the top floor of our current building because I am selfish :) !!

Hurray for being settled...at least for now! I swear, I never want to move again. Yes, I hate it that much....

Moving and packing and unpacking is the worst! I'm glad you're all situated. I'm sure you are looking forward to the new house! When is it supposed to be finished?
