We did it – we’ve moved into our new townhouse! The big move was on Saturday, and although there are a couple of small things still at our apartment, mainly large framed photos and wall art, 95% of our belongings are now at our new house. The house is a bit of a mess, which is to be expected, but each day we’re getting more and more unpacked and set up. On Sunday a friend and I unpacked and set up the kitchen (its the only room that’s fully unpacked), and it feels so great to have a fully functioning kitchen again and to be able to cook! Sunday night we were able to use our new grill for the first time – one of the many new things that we had been looking forward to buying for our new house since they were prohibited at our apartment complex.
I’ve decided to skip my weekly training log update for last week and combine weeks 11 and 12 into one recap next week, as I only ran once last week. I’m amazed that I kept up with my training as much as I did during week 10, and fortunately the long run that I missed over the weekend was only four miles. Part of my challenge this week is that we’ve haven’t transferred our gym membership yet, and we’re now 35 minutes without traffic from our apartment and old gym. We live in the DC area after all and there’s very few times during the day when there isn’t traffic, so the idea of possibly driving close to an hour each way to get to the gym right now isn’t ideal given how much else we need to focus on.
In case you didn’t see my post on Facebook yesterday, I will be without internet at home all week. The internet at our apartment was turned off on Friday, and the earliest appointment I could get to set up our cable and internet at the house is for this coming Sunday. I’m hoping to get to Starbucks or Panera each day to write a blog post, but if I miss another day this week that’s why. I can’t wait for everything to return to normal next week so that I can catch up on all my blog reading and feel like a normal 21st century person again!
QOTD: What is one thing that took slower than you wanted it to when you last moved?
