Last night we got the last of our things out of the old apartment. We’ve been renters in Houston Heights for five years now, and it was kind of sad to leave that place. We were very happy there for the first years- the place was small but cute, we had a great big yard, great neighbors, a quiet street. The last couple of years in that place were pretty bad (largely due to a landlord who just wouldn’t fix ANYTHING, but who regularly raised the rent) but there were some good times too, and I’ll miss them.
The new place is piled high with boxes and looking quite a mess. In the coming week I plan to start unpacking and get organized… so much to do! I’m glad we’re done moving house, though, and ready to move on to the settling in.
