Well, today we move out of our flat that was damaged by Hurricane Gustav. The new place has two bedrooms instead of three which is going to be a bit of a pain because we are giving up VanGoghGirl's toy room which, in the past couple of years, had become our office. In exchange, we're getting a flat with vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, all new appliances, a new air conditioner and water heater, bigger bedrooms (each with walk-in closets), and a bigger kitchen with a walk-in pantry AND hook-ups for a washer and dryer. It's freshly painted in a beautiful color somewhere between beige and peach. It's nice to have a gang of tall, strapping cousins to help out since The German can't pick up anything over 25 lbs.
Anyway, the next time I post, it will be from our new place.
