Oh my goodness, what a whirlwind couple of days it’s been! Boo and I are finally settling in to our new apartment in Lincoln Park. My sofa and coffee table arrived today so that is a major check off of my list. I still need to tackle my clothes and closet since the lack of storage is the one downside of my new home. My friend, Arie, who helped me with the move by grocery shopping and bringing Boo here from my mom’s, will come tomorrow to help me organize that.
Speaking of my mom, Boo and I had an incredible four days with her, eating her home-cooked meals, going for walks, and just hanging out. It was so wonderful to be with her and I really enjoyed watching how much she loved on Boo. We miss her dearly already.
The move itself was yesterday and it went by quickly. The movers were great and I was able to return my U-Haul with relative ease. Arie helped me tackle the initial boxes and unpacking groceries and kitchen items. What a wonderful friend she is to be so willing and enthusiastic to help!
Boo seems to be adjusting well to his new neighborhood, exploring the block we live on with zeal. I do feel bad that I’ve been so distracted the past few days, but soon enough, he will have more of my attention. Today he has a follow up vet appointment to check if the giardia, a common intestinal parasite, is all gone. Hopefully the medication worked. He also has a few shots left to receive. My expectation is that this will be the last vet visit for now until he gets neutered at six months (cross your fingers).
I’m loving my place so far and all of the amenities. I can’t wait to get balcony furniture and some plants to enjoy the beautiful view of Lincoln Park and Lake Michigan. Eventually, I’ll be able to have access to my building’s rooftop deck and fitness center. Absolutely looking forward to that and hosting guests!
Once I’m fully unpacked, I will share pictures of my bathroom and bedroom area. The only other big decorating project outside of closet organization includes hanging a mirror and some pictures. I also think I’m going to purchase a larger television. I’m very excited and am looking forward to a much needed night’s sleep tonight. It’s been very “go, go, go” and I’m ready to settle!
