So, it's now been one week since we moved into our new house. We're loving the house -- the extra space, the kitchen, the yard, the 'hood -- but we're still surrounded by boxes. Judging by our last move, it may take a while before everything finds a home, but it's okay. The worst is over!
Some quick observations about our new 'hood... it feels colder than the city (not sure if that's because it is actually a lot colder outside now than it has been); the sounds of sirens and helicopters have been replaced by the stray train horn -- fine by us; and it is generally much quieter, which is slightly strange, but I think we'll get used to it. :-)
