... Since I last posted here. Me and Chris are doing decently, living in our apartment here in New Brighton. A lot has changed, but a lot really hasn't- life goes on with the routines continuing as usual... Just with fewer people around and less space!

Changes that have taken place include [livejournal.com profile] joshuwain's Vanguard game of a year's length coming to an end, The Sunday Gaming Group going on an extended hiatus (we pick up again sometime in September from the looks of things), And my having eliminated a TON of accumulated crap from my life. 18 years in a house allows a LOT of accumulation!

Still, I miss the place. I had more space, and a lot more privacy- I can't play loud music here, for example, because of neighbors above, below and beside. I liked having my OWN washer and dryer, too.

The apartment does have SOME advantages- lower overall bills, INCREDIBLE water pressure and far less drama. Anyway, those are the highlights- I'll maybe try to post more often, but no promises. :)

I'm about to head to bed. It's almost 4, and what's going to be pre-moved into the garage is moved. I don't think the move is going to be too bad, but I won't know 'til we get going. The plan is that my folks will get here around 9 or 9:30. We'll head to the apartment and pay the first months rent (half a month) and the second month, and get the keys. Then we'll come back and start moving stuff, starting with the furniture. I think that after that's all moved, I may just do the rest with the car, but I don't know. I think we'll get the furniture (beds and dressers at least) set up, then bring the cats over when they have places to hide.

After that, it'll be everything else. I'm betting with the van-and-trailer, it'll be 2 trips and some stuff in my car.

After we're done, I'll be steam-cleaning the rug downstairs and doing any remaining cleaning that's left, plus doing a walk through to find anything I might have forgotten. With luck we'll be all done with the phone/cable/internet online by 4 PM- I have to take the old set-top box back in, and get the new box from the cable store; Hennepin and Ramsey counties are using different gear, despite it being the same company. Silly, but what can you do. Wish us luck! I'll get the new phone number and stuff to people ASAP.

WE HAVE AN APARTMENT! It's at Hillside East Apartments, off of Old Highway 8 about 3/4 mile north of County Road D / 37th Avenue. 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, second floor with 900 square feet and a small balcony. Its a REAL nice area, and we (Me and Chris) move in on July 18. Woohoo!

This is the layout: http://tinyurl.com/6o8kx9j

The work on the house approaches the finish line- the carpet will go in next week, probably Wednesday, and mostly what's left is little fiddly things. We'll be on the market the first week of June, I think.

I can't wait til all this is DONE.
