It happened so fast!

We've already got our apartment!!!! Holy toledo, what a relief and what a blessing. Tomorrow we go to pay the deposit and first month's rent, which, I might add, is well below the maximum price we were willing to go. Then we'll get the keys and begin our shopping saga. We have no bed or mattress, so that's the first, most important thing to get. We plan to meet Mom and Dad back here at the hotel about an hour after meeting with the landlord. Then we're off to IKEA for our bed and mattress, to be assembled there at the apartment that evening. We'll need to go to IKEA again for more things, but I'll have a better idea once we get the bulk of our stuff moved in. All I know is that we're going to need a lot of stuff since both of us had to give away or sell all our furniture (not possible to keep with an overseas move). Here is that online photo album of our apartment.

Wow Amy, you don't waste much time do you? :-)

Congrats on the apartment - it looks really really nice, and you have a REAL kitchen. I'm sooo jealous. I'll bet Golf is thrilled with getting back to a 'convenient' standard of living isn't he? :-)
