The Move

November 19, 2011 at 11:13 am Leave a comment

After two days and what seems like a never ending trip up and down the five flights of stairs in our apartment building, we’ve finally moved out of our place!

All I can say is, thank goodness for moving companies. Packing stuff, throwing away stuff, selling stuff, etc., was tiring enough, without having to actually carry everything out to the moving truck. The moving company guys did all of that for us. And considering our apartment is a weird two-floor apartment with the entrance on the upper floor, and most of our living space on the floor below, the moving guys had to haul our washing machine and refrigerator up the steep, narrow flight of stairs in our apartment to the entrance on the floor above. Not something I would ever want to attempt. Actually, I have no desire to move a refrigerator anywhere. That includes moving it from one side of the kitchen to the other. No thanks. Go moving guys, go!

There was a lot more involved in moving, but it’s kind of all a blur to me now. Let me just say, I’m glad it’s over. We’re done! Now Hisa and I can relax until we leave Japan on Dec. 6th.

Right now we’re staying with Hisa’s parents in Tochigi. Right now I’m in the living room where Hisa, my sister-in-law, and my 3 year old niece are watching My Neighbor Totoro. Good times.

It’s really distracting though, because I like this movie, hehe. So for now, I’ll leave you with this picture of our empty apartment.

Goodbye our home for the last two and a half years!

Next Tuesday, Hisa and I will be leaving to travel around Japan for about a week via Shinkansen (the bullet trains). I won’t be able to post during our trip, but I’ll try to post before and after our trip while we’re still in Japan (thought it probably won’t be everyday as I’m not cooking any here). After going back to the U.S. I’ll start posting more regularly again.

For now, I’m happy to be able to rest for awhile. 🙂
