Hope you all had a great week! I have to admit, this week completely ran away from me. I’m feeling a bit of work/blog guilt. Thankfully, our move to the new apartment went extremely well on Friday, but I have spent the past seven days unpacking everything and getting ahead on upcoming deadlines.
We moved out of our old apartment on Friday, moved all of our belongings into the new space by the end of that day, and had to deep clean the other space to turn in our keys by the end of the weekend. I put my head down and ended up working on nothing else for the next three days. Even though I hate moving, I actually love re-organizing spaces, so it was fun in its own sort of way!
I have a very hard time concentrating on anything else when I’m living in chaos (or surrounded by boxes!), so it was the best way for me to settle quickly and just…get on with it. We’re loving the new space (and additional storage) and already feel incredibly settled. Thankfully, the pets are too.
Thank you for your continued patience with me! Good things are coming your way soon, including that restaurant guide I mentioned last week. On a related note, we rented plastic crates for our move (we used a local company in Chicago called Redi-Box) and I can’t recommend them enough. They deliver and pick them up for you based on your schedule. It was my first time doing something like this, and it made the move so easy and nearly waste-free. No putting together or breaking down boxes, and each crate can hold a lot of weight.
Weight = cookbooks.
