As many of you know, we are moving. I didn't go into details on my blog, but those on the knittyboard and some IRL friends have gotten the full scoop (Phil, I will email you the whole story, if you'd really like to know.). I'm over the initial drama of it, but we will have stories for years to come about this particular landlady.
Speaking of landlords, I had to go to the City of Boston's website when I heard that Mayor "Mumbles" Menino was posting the names of the top 20 trash fine violators, and lo and behold! One of my former landlords made the list!!! Go Paul!!!
I hit Craigslist and found us a really nice apartment within a week. We're not familiar with our new 'hood, but know three people who live there and love it. We're excited about exploring this neck o' the woods.
My lovely stepdaughter, Karmellah, took pictures when she helped us move some stuff in last week. Here they are:
First impressions!! This is the front hallway. There's a huge closet to the right, to the left is the living room. The doorway straight ahead goes into the bedroom, and there is another door on the far side of the bedroom, leading to the hallway to the 2nd bedroom.
This will be our bedroom. The futon is the "guest futon"; we're still sleeping on our bed at the current apartment. The ceiling fans are a nice addition; most of the rooms have them.
The second bedroom will be the library. It's painted a really pale purple.
This is the dining room, with a double-doorway looking into the living room. Notice the stained glass window in the living room! Classy! I love living/dining room combos.
This is the built-in hutch to the dining room. What do you think I've already unpacked into it? :-)
We still have lots of things to move over, and lots of cleaning/unpacking/arranging to do when we get there. I think it's going to be an awesome place to live.
Coming up next: Secret Pal pictures!
