Here we go again. A fresh start in a new place. We have been in Atlanta five days now and are getting nicely settled. We still have some furniture to rearrange and some boxes to unpack, but things are going smoothly.
My father-in-law Stan helped Christopher with the move, and we couldn’t have done it without him. They were even able to stop in Columbia on the way to Atlanta and load a bunch of my mom’s furniture, which will help us out, and give my mom an excuse to do some redecorating. (Thanks, and sorry, Dad)
One of my first items of business was getting Megan in school. My next post will be a letter from her teacher on her progress so far.
Other errands included finding the best grocery stores (the Publix is so nice, but the Walmart Supercenter is so cheap), the library, the YMCA, and the pediatrician’s office. Megan’s new pediatrician went to her elementary school once upon a time.
The apartment is huge and clean, and so far everything we’ve asked for (ceiling fans, a digital thermostat, turning down the water heater) has been taken care of promptly. Home ownership is a little overrated.
We are going to like it here.
