So Long, Farewell
Tonight was our very last night of apartment living. After 7 years and just as many apartments, it's pretty awesome to stop paying rent. But it's a little weird to say goodbye to my home of the past 3 years. Fella and I had only been dating a year when we moved in, and we had only lived in our apartment - described on craigslist at the time as a sunny, charming vintage apartment on a quiet, tree-lined street - for a month when we adopted Jude. We've had a lot of good times here, had Rad and other fun visitors, hosted several parties and gone through all kinds of interesting life experiences. But as they say, onward and upward.
Don't let the pretty dress and fresh face fool you - I spent the day cleaning up the condo, after spending the better part of 12 hours on Thursday painting. I couldn't have gotten it all done without the tireless efforts of Fella's parents. We had dinner with them and Fella's godparents tonight, and it was nice to get out of my painting clothes and just relax for a while. But still, I'm exhausted from all the hard work! And yet so excited about the move tomorrow that I can't sleep. Am I rambling? I think I'm rambling. What are you up to this weekend?
