plan b: asceticism

by Stacy

We have an apartment! Our stuff is in it! My whole body hurts!

Everything about getting this apartment has sort of been a pain, but we finally signed our lease on Wednesday and got our keys on Thursday. We also arranged for our container of all our earthly possessions to arrive on Thursday. It was scheduled between 11am-2pm, so of course it got there at 4:00pm.

By 7:00pm, the two of us had carried (across the parking lot, past the stinky garbage bin, down three steps, up three steps, then up two flights of stairs) everything except 7 small boxes, the nightstand, and the dresser inside. We were grubby, hot, and done for the day.

Today, we got everything inside (big shout out to Yusik for helping to carry the dresser!) and spent the day re-assembling furniture and washing dishes. The top row of quick photos is from Friday morning, the bottom row is from Friday night.

From left-to-right is the kitchen, living room, and bedroom. The kitchen sort of looks worse later, but that’s because every single dish, pot, pan, and glass has to be washed before it gets put away. So far I have done four loads of dishes in the dishwasher. Now I have to do laundry so I have clean towels before I can do all the hand-washing.

Next time we move, we’re selling everything we own. We have a lot of stuff.
But no food yet.

We had some time to kill waiting for our stuff to arrive. Lucky for us, there is a mall across the street. And two liquor stores. We’re ready to celebrate the new place once we find champagne flutes!
