Pictures to come tomorrow. Maybe.

Long and short of our tale is that we're moving. Again. It was mutually decided that for the benefit of the parental and childrenal relationship we should move out. And so we are. To a gorgeous little duplex one mile from the university. It's swamp cooler which I really did not want to deal with again but everything with refrigerated air was pretty much out of our price range. And this place has tile floors, high ceilings, and shade. So hopefully it won't be too bad.

I kept most of our stuff from the apartment. I think I had the sense that the sojourn at Damm's parents' place wouldn't last long. So a few small things and a buying of all things belonging in my pantry and we're set. And I keep on saying this, but hopefully this time THIS WILL BE THE LAST MOVE. At least until we're done with school. It's possible. We were very impressed with the rental company that owns the duplex and the duplex itself is in top condition, though it is an older model.

I can't remember the last time I was this excited. Perhaps when Damm came home from training. I love duplexes-it feels like a house. I'm also hopeful that we can steer clear of apartments for the duration of our lives. A bit dramatic but seriously, I dislike apartments.

As the title says, perhaps pictures tomorrow if the cable company is able to switch over our internet promptly.

Congrats on the new place! Moving isn't so fun but it sounds like this will work out for the best.

Gratz :)

The wife and I continued to live with the in-laws for a couple of years after we were married and while doing so might be economical (& convenient with respect to baby sitting), marital bliss is increased when you have your own space.
