I guess we are New Yorkers now! I can tell because I am laying on my bed listening to people, cars, planes and bangs. City life. I can tell bc when I cross the street, I see a lady detach her hair and brush through it! I can tell because we just paid up the wazzu (sp?) for our modest apartment. But by golly, it feels great! I know I've only been here 3 days, but I am beginning to understand the sense of accomplishment and pride that comes with "being a New Yorker" because I have managed to move here. It is a big ordeal in terms of time, expectations, logistics and finances to get yourself here.
We have a space to call our own and T has a high chair again! We were too tired to set up her real crib tonight, but tomorrow she will sleep on an actual mattress for the first time since Jan 30-- 7 months ago! She has literally spent half her life on the move. It was amazing and fulfilling and free, but it is time to settle down again. We are in the Harlem 1st ward and we are excited to move our records there starting tomorrow. I'm grateful to have a little over a week before school starts for Scott so we can get settled. I'm even hoping to paint!!! Our ikea trip is scheduled for Monday. With no further ado, here are some pics:
We are quite shocked Brenda's car pulled our heavy ubox home from Chelsea. Wow, a few barriers to this working but we made it in the end.
Unloading on the street. We were quite the sight. Really. And we are so grateful to our friends Brenda and Josh who helped us soooo much!!
Ts room is long and narrow. It will also double as my sewing room and the office. She has a walk in closet w shelving which may be my fav feature of the house.
