Destination England

Our journey from debt to England…and everything in between!

Moved In!

with 2 comments

First off, sorry for the absence.  It’s been a crazy week, and very little time for getting online.  Thursday was move in day, and we did very well.  We are going back to the old place tonight and tomorrow to clean our portion of the apartment (bedroom, master bath, living room, dining, and kitchen) then drop the keys off in the overnight box and we’re done with that place!

This new place is coming along nicely.  Yesterday saw the kitchen completed (still needs a little cosmetic tweaking, but its functional and operational), the living room set up, and an assortment of boxes at least moved to their respective floor/room.  There are still a lot of boxes to go through and sort, but it is coming together.  The apartment is great, and with a few minor cosmetic issues, and a stopped up first floor toilet, it is in good shape.  We’re going through the move in check list to turn into the office so they know what was damaged before us, and hopefully can fix them.  Connor seems to be enjoying the new place, though we’re running into the challenge of getting him used to sleeping in his own room.

The area we’re in is a hundred times nicer than our previous place, and you can barely hear the road we’re next to.  All our shops are very close by and work is only about 15 minutes away now.  There’s even a fantastic Chinese buffet around the corner!  Overall, I think we’ll fit in nicely, and we’ll see how this year goes.  If all works nicely, we might just stay here while we plan to move to England in a few years.

The down side isn’t with the apartment but with the internet service.  We went with Uverse, and I’m having issues when downloading it kills our bandwidth speed.  I will get 4-5 Mbps normally, and then when I download something, it will drop to less than 1 Mbps.  I’m going to try a few tweaks, but if it continues I think I might drop Uverse and go back to Time Warner.  We’ll have to see!
