Last Week

It’s our last week at the apartment. Next Sunday, we will take the cats over to the new place in the morning and get them settled in the basement. Then sometime in the afternoon, the movers will arrive to load up all our stuff and bring them over to the condo. Then we will spend our first night in our new home. And the unpacking and settling process will begin.
This is the longest that I have ever lived in one place. I am thrilled to be moving to our new home and being able to make it our own. Yet in a sense, it’s odd to have made it so long in one place and to now be leaving it. There are a lot of memories wrapped up in this apartment. Including, this was where we lived when 9/11 occurred. This was where I lived when I had my dream job and when I had to leave it. We brought our cats home to this apartment and it’s the only home they really know. I turned 30 and Jono turned 40 while living here. We celebrated both our 5 year and 10 year anniversaries during our time here. The news of my first niece’s birth was received in this apartment.
We will have many new experiences and new memories as we now move to our new home. The next 10 years will bring my 40th and Jono’s 50th birthdays. Our 15 year and 20 year anniversaries. We hope to be able to have people over at the condo for games and fellowship. That is something that we have not been able to really do in our small apartment. We will have our own washer and dryer instead of having to use quarters to do laundry. We can wash our own blankets at home instead of having to go to the laundromat to do it. The future awaits!
