The Move…

I am beginning to think that no move is easy…and while I was totally prepared and ready to make a move – it is still stressful!

But, I am loving living in my new building – actually it is more like a little neighborhood.  We have eighty apartments here. 

Have been clearly taking my time with the unpacking – it is a lot to figure out and I don’t want to be re-doing things.  I only want to do it once!  So am thinking through where I want my furniture and things.

The other part that I am enjoying since moving here has been the daily lunches – it means I get a well-balance meal and not have to worry about cooking while in the midst of unpacking.  The building here makes the meals for Meals on Wheels – and offers a congregate lunch meal for seniors and their friends for a donation of $2.00. 

And, in the evenings I spend an hour or two downstairs in the lobby area with some knitters.  It has given me the opportunity to relax a bit before going to bed.

Now it is time to go unpack some more…

    It sounds like you’ve found a wonderful new home. How nice to have other knitters to sit with in the evenings. I know you’ll be very happy once you get all settled.

    It sounds like you found the perfect place for you Sara- It is important to live in a place that you are comfortable.
    There is no rush to get everything unpacked – that will get done in time too.
    Warmest regards,

    Nice! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the new apartment and all its benefits. I hope you find a lovely, welcoming family there (and it sounds like you might already have done just that).

    No rush with the unpacking, right? It’s your place, so you want to get things just the way YOU like them!

    Moving is stressful, so anything to make it less so is good. We moved nearly six months ago and I need to re-organise some things that I wasn’t sure about when we first unpacked……but that will come. Sounds as though you have moved to the ideal place!

    Oh, Sara! It sounds divine! Take your time with the unpacking. It can be very stressful. Just go at it on your own pace — and enjoy your new surroundings!

    I definitely agree with no move being easy. I still can’t find stuff and we’ve been here for a year and a half! Sounds like the move was a good decision though, and will be well worth the chore of packing and unpacking.
