We're in the Apartment

It's bittersweet. Friday we moved into our temporary apartment in Delaware. It's very nice to be in our own place back East, but it's still frustrating. I've learned I'm very materialistic and have too much stuff. Kitchen wise, I pretty much use all of it, but really, there's an excess. Definitely something I need to work on. Our plan is to stay here until we find a home we want to buy. That's the frustrating part. I'm trying not to completely unpack, but still have a functional home. It's still taking quite a lot of time to unpack and organize, but I keep thinking I'm just going to have to do this all again in a couple of months. Either way, I can't cook out of boxes, so I must organize the kitchen. We didn't move our dressers into the apartment, so we will be keeping our clothes in suitcases, but we can deal.

It's so nice to be back though. Yesterday we visited Joe's family and it only took an hour each way. So much better than a flight or 24 hour drive!

There's really no point to this post, I just needed to whine. I have recipes I've made in Omaha that I've still yet to post, so eventually they'll be up here. I'm going through cooking withdrawal, but 1. Our kitchen isn't set up yet and 2. We're on a tighter budget, so I really need to make sure I'm cooking food that Joe will eat too, aka boring.

Glad you're excited to be back East. Remember that the inconveniences are temporary, and you're so close to where you want to be. :) Can't wait to see those recipes!

Happy to hear you made it and are all moved in. Living temporary is frustrating. I remember trying to pack for our move to our house. There was always one thing you randmonly needed that was in a box at the bottom of a pile.
