So, I'm all moved in and settled. Huge thanks to the people who stepped up to help- y'all know who you are. I am truly blessed to have so many people that wouldn't mind helping me haul all of my stuff up a flight of stairs on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.
I love my new space. I have it set up so that it pretty much fits me perfectly. I don't look around and go "ugh, where did that come from" or "I wish I could just throw that away". It's a lot of mismatched pieces, but it's cozy and homey and me. I love it. I stayed up til midnight Saturday night getting everything in place and unpacked so that I could make the space mine, and I'm happy that I did.
It's not a huge adjustment, really. It's pretty solitary, which is nice, but strange considering I have a roommate and 4 dogs. She's been working from 4pm-midnight, so we haven't seen much of each other this week, and the dogs stay to themselves unless I'm making food. And it's so nice to be so close to work. I haven't been sleeping in later, but I damn sure have been taking my sweet time actually getting up and out of bed.
