We got all moved in last Thursday without any problems. It was a perfect day for moving, clear and cool. The movers were done in 7 hours and we were all in. This apartment is so big, that with all the boxes, over 60, placed around the apartment where they belong, and all the furniture in place, there is still lots of room to move about freely. DH had our audio visual and phone guys in on Wednesday before we moved in and everything was online and working when we arrived. We were able to sit down that night and watch a little TV. Bed was early that night and I actually slept for 6 hours! It hasn't happened since but even 1 longer night was a blessing. I love it here. We are right in the city centre a short block from the main intersection in the city. Everything is right at hand, sadly, that includes some really good restaurants and take out places. LOL We were able to get the kitchen fully functional in time for Saturday breakfast, but the takeout damage had been done. I gained 2 pounds this week! It is fine though and we are back on track with eating and exercise at full steam now. I have been out for at least 1 walk every day. The dog is so happy. She gets walked 3 or 4 times a day and it is somewhere new each time. She loves all the people on the sidewalks and is sure we are going in all the open shop doors, especially the deli and the butchers. LOL. I have such a positive mindset here . It is bright and roomy and I love it here. I have been working hard unpacking and going to and fro every day moving things and cleaning everything before it gets put into use. We really did live in such a dingy, dusty place before. I didn't realize how much it was contributing to my depression. My goal is to walk at least 1500 steps a day. Doesn't sound like much to many, but it is a huge step forward for me. I get dressed every morning and that is totally new. I used to stay in my nightgown and housecoat all day. This was the right move for us and I am so happy.
