This is hopefully going to be a quick post because I'm blogging at Starbucks (no Internet at our new place) and I'm leaving for my late shift at Macy's in a little bit! To catch you all up...
We moved into our new apartment yesterday!! We spent the whole day making a few trips back and forth with various loads with the help of our friend Omar. I think we picked the perfect day to move because it was 94 degrees outside, which was a great time to move into our new A/C apartment! After we made the last trip from our old place to the new one, we started a load of laundry (with the washing machine conveniently located right across the hall), ordered a pizza and began unpacking our clothes, books, movies and kitchen stuff. I tackled the bathroom and kitchen while Israel worked in the living room filling almost all of our shelves with books and DVD's. I think this is my husband's favorite feature-- it's been a dream of his for a long time to have a shelf full of books and books. :)
We were so exhausted after a very full day of moving, so we showered and relaxed in our bedroom (it's awesome now having a room just for the bed!) with a little bit of reading time. I'm so thankful for this place. All morning today I just felt like I could breathe again. I'm thankful for A/C and I'm thankful that we can actually move around in our apartment. Thank you all for praying for us! It's hard to believe that a little over three weeks ago I didn't have a job and we didn't know where we would be living! But God always provides, no matter how dire your circumstances look.
Here are a few photos from yesterday:
Our old efficiency/studio apartment right before we began hauling things outta there! To the left is the kitchenette and bathroom.
In our new living room! We set up a makeshift table and were pretty excited to eat some pizza!
Hot and sweaty but oh so happy to be in our new place! :)
I'm off to work! I will post some more pictures of the new apartment soon once we get it a little more organized. Happy weekend and Happy Father's Day!
