Movin on up

We're finally moving to a townhouse!

Loralei and I have been looking around for one for a little while now, and we've finally decided on a place. Its a townhouse down on craig henry, with 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a huge finished basement, brand new washer and dryer, dishwasher, and just about everything is bigger than our current 2-bedroom apartment. Hardwood flooring throughout. we'll finally have somewhere to store our clutter! the dining area isnt going to be cramped, and the entertainment center is going to be better than ever.

We kind of wanted to move mid-march, so maybe a half month overlap between the 2 places to save rent. however this place is available immediately and its perfect for us. the rental company is kind of anxious to start renting it, and it is a good deal at $948/month. only about $100 more than we're currently paying, for about double the space. so we took it for february 1st. this way we get lots of time to organize and plan things and move at our own pace. Although i think a moving company will be involved to get most of the larger stuff, and anything we can box up for them to take over.

Now we just have to deal with the logistics. how is the projector going to be set up? how are the internet and satellite feeds going to be run? Like to be able to make the switch over as quickly as possible, but its not likely going to be up and running the same day.

I'm excited, as i always am for a move. its always a fresh start. this time its on a grander scale though, it will feel more like a home than an apartment ever could.

In other more boring news, I've been back at playing world of warcraft. Its a fun distraction. You get this "rested" bonus that builds up every time you dont play. its been accumulating for months now and it took me work through it all, but it got my character to almost level 58. they provide the bonus for the casual player so he can catch up a bit easier to his harcore friends who play all the time. With my luck though, I'll just hit 60 when they raise the level cap to 70.
