so, with the exception of some heavy boxes in my car that I am too tired/lazy to tackle, I am moved.
The apartment is old, shabby, somewhat in the ghetto (on only one of its four sides) and still charming. my bedroom is what sold me on the place and what still sells me.
I promise I will post pictures someday, once I find my camera battery charger (i haven't unpacked anything, I just finished packing up the H-burg apartment).
The move has been all-consuming and fraught with worries, but soon, once I'm unpacked, I can get back to actually communicating with people.
I never realized how hard moving can be when you don't take any time off to do it. It really is a full-time job as it is and I'd never moved before when I only had one full day and a bunch of half-days to do it. Never do that ya'll! Always take a week off!

I am moving into the above apartment next weekend!
potential problems: i forgot to look and make sure that clawfoot tub has shower option. disasters?
Otherwise, kindly old man landlord has promised to remove ugly wallpaper in kitchen, repaint, fix closet doors and AND I only pay electric, no gas. WOOOT!
The house is way shabby chic (partially b/c the artists downstairs seem to do all their art projects on the porch AND broke the porch swing), but it gets tons of natural light, i have more rooms than I know what to do with (one room I didn't even remember being there!), central air, clawfoot tub, hardwood floors, mantels and a bay window. Now, if I could only start fostering kittens and get Sean in the vicinities, I would have a dream come true!
