Moving In

Yesterday morning started with a Work Day at school. I’m not ready to set up my classroom yet, so I looked at the list of tasks and helped with a few of them… desk sorting, doorstop fixing, shelf carrying… it was little stuff, but it adds up. There were a few parents and church members there too, so it was nice to be there.

Afterward, I had a delicious lunch with David and Barb, then headed to my apartment for some unpacking. I started in the kitchen, because that seemed to be the easiest. There are already cabinets and drawers in the kitchen – all I needed to do was decide what stuff went where.

The rest of the rooms will be a little harder. They will require creative arrangement of storage boxes, or perhaps some new or used furniture. I don’t have a dresser. I don’t have a bed frame. I don’t have anything for the tv to sit on. I think I want to take my time with these items so my apartment looks like a home and not a dorm room.

So for a few days, I think my apartment will be a little messy-looking. And for now, I’m sleeping on the floor of the living room. It’s cooler there because that’s where the air conditioner is. Also, my bed isn’t set up yet.

I woke up yesterday in this bed:

    That guest room is simply gorgeous! You could just have a set-up like that in your living room and have it be like a hotel suite, then rent out those back rooms as office space. 😉

    Dang it, Brad, I’m too busy to daydream about how to make furniture for your apartment out of driftwood and old ship boards. Off to Craigslist…..

    Good thought on no dorm room! Yes, have fun designing your new digs. What a bed comparison! Lol hey the floor can be pretty cozy if that’s all you have.
