This past weekend Neal and I moved from one apartment in our complex to another one. Why did we move just 6 months after moving into our first one?? Well, it’s cheaper. It is MUCH cheaper to rent between November and February verses the peak months of May-August.
I knew last May that I’d want to see what was available in the winter months and was sold when I found out we’d be saying $250 a month. I loved our old apartment but was more than happy to move to an apartment that doesn’t face the metro train. I will not miss hearing the trains every 6-12 minutes.
Our new apartment is the exact same layout as our old apartment but there are a few differences, like the windows. Everything else is just about the same, making the move super easy. We literally moved an item and put it in the exact same spot in the new apartment. I’ll do a grand tour later this week.
Moving for 3 days also helped me to get in 3 amazing workouts, on top of 2 football practices. Saturday I had football practice for 2 hours and 8 hours of moving.
Sunday we moved most of the day! 12,438 steps… not too bad!
Yesterday I killed it though! We started moving at 7AM and wrapped it up around 2PM. A few hours of running errands and then 2 hours of football practice left me with 16,134 steps, 6.62 miles, and 2,717 calories burned from my movement. I’m definitely feeling it today!
It feels so great to be settled into our new apartment and as I shared yesterday, to know that we probably wont be moving for a while. During the move I did make a list of a few things I want to buy and a few things I want to do around the house.
- Scarf organizer
- Spice rack
- New lamps for the living room (either a floor lamp or two table lamps)
- Frame for wedding thump print tree
- New pillow cases for the master bedroom and a bed skirt for the guest room
- Clean out toiletries
- Organize pantry (spices)
- Find home for 2 boxes of dvds
- Hang wall art
I don’t know why I’m so excited about this new place but I just am. It just feels so great to be a little more settled.
