So after weeks of looking, we finally have our cardboard box in New York City. Well, Jersey City. Close enough. We get the keys and move in Friday. It's only a block from the train into the city and close enough to walk once you get there, or there's a train that goes directly to the office if it's pouring rain or only 2 degrees outside. The apartment itself is pretty small — like one person in the kitchen at a time small — but is a nice place with new appliances and hardwood floors, so we'll live. Closet space is good, too. And we're only a few blocks from friends who are also relocating to NYC from work.
I feel like we should be excited but we're both so worn out from the search and trying to get things in order with our apartment here and having to move in like three days, that we're just exhausted instead. I hope next weekend it'll sink in and we'll be excited.
So that's the news. Stay tuned.
