Settling in Seattle

I've been slightly off the grid for the last week or so as I was packing and moving across the country to Seattle, so this is a quick life update:

- Got my place
- Got my stuff into my place
- Unpacked a couple boxes
- Working on the free WiFi from the cafe down the street until my office is open downtown next week.

So far, so good! I'm not sure if our new place is exceptionally tiny or our last place was extra huge; maybe a combination of the two, but we definitely have more stuff than I know what to do with right now. Oh well. We're committed for a year, at least. My landlord seems nice enough and we even have hot water, which is something the last place didn't seem interested in fixing.

I've spent the last two days living with my cousins-in-law until everything got here (thanks Serina and Charles!) and hanging with my awesome six-year-old second cousin Elijah, who has been pretty amped to have somebody new to play with. It's been the most exhausting two days off I've ever had, but it's been a lot of fun! 

Tonight I'll sleep in my own bed again; I cannot tell you how much I'm looking forward to that.

I cannot tell YOU how much I'm looking forward to sleeping in my own bed again. It's been 8 weeks and 2 days, but who's counting?
I'll help you get the stuff sorted soon. Promise.

8 weeks is a long time to be separated from your beloved! I wish the time to pass speedy for you two! :)
