Moving to a house

Hey guys, guys, we’re moving to a house! Like… tomorrow!! 8O

I’ve mentioned it on Twitter but I guess I should blog about it too. I found the house up for rent about 2 months ago. We were thinking about buying our own place, but even if we’re saving it’s still a long way to go before we can afford it. Renting suits us better for now.

Anyway, it’s a small row house. 3 rooms + kitchen, with a garage and laundry room.
All of my adult life I’ve lived in apartments in apartment buildings so just having a front door – my own front door, not a stairwell – will be amazing. And I won’t have to park the car on some parking lot somewhere, I’ll have a driveway and a garage. And a lawn! A very small lawn, but still a lawn. Whee!

We’ve spent all week packing and sorting. Tomorrow we’ll get the key to the house and then we’ll move all the small stuff. On Saturday we’ll rent a trailer or something and move all the furniture. Sunday we’ll move whatever’s left + clean the old apartment.
God, I’m getting tired just writing this… As I said on Twitter I’m already dreading moving all my books. :oops:

Markus: Hey, listen, I’ve packed the camera in this box. If you at any time get a sudden urge to photograph something this is where to look. It’s in the corner with the guy, under the box of dices.

Me: The… guy?

Markus: Yeah, he’s parachuting from an aeroplane taking pictures from the sky. :D

Me: Parachuting… Right. I’ll probably remember that.

That’s the man I’m marrying right there, haha ♥

    Åh vad kul, grattis! :D Skulle också gärna bo i hus om jag hade råd. En egen gräsmatta vore guld!

      Grejen är att när vi räknade på huset kom vi fram till att det inte så skulle bli så hemskt mycket dyrare än lägenheten vi bodde i (vi hade rätt dyr hyra iofs). Eller jag får väl se när elräkningen kommer i vinter efter 4 veckor med 30 minusgrader… :S

    Yay that is exciting! I hope the house is all you dreamed it would be. I personally enjoy not having to mow the lawn and shovel the snow off the driveway for now. But once I have kids I guess I would want to have a house to call my own. Cute guy drawing too. Your future husband sounds wonderful. :D

      Yeah, the snow… That’s the one thing I don’t look forward too. At least it’s a short driveway.
      My boyfriend does random stuff like that all the time, he’s rather interesting to live with. ^_^
