Hey Friends! Most of you know that we recently downsized to an apartment (A very Luxury place!) and we are still unpacking. Problem is, can’t find s#!t. Boxes are labeled but I’m finding not everything is labeled correctly. We have 2 storage closets too. Packed to the ceiling. And to think, we were so proud of the big purge we did before moving! I did manage to find my favorite coffee mugs. Yay.
My friend Robin and I were discussing how different apartment life is now compared to the stone ages when we were just out of college. Don’t worry, we will do a video on that soon! Biggest thing is, some apartments are laid out very well with a more open concept. Lots of storage, garages, spas, pools, dog parks…it’s like resort living. I highly recommend this for midlifers and empty nesters.
I’ll soon be out shopping for all the things I can’t find in the unpacking faze. Like where the hell is my margarita pitcher? The emotions are all over the place from happy (yay new place and more cabinets!) to mad (where is that pitcher?) to weepy (found the paw print from my sweet pup who passed away a few years ago) to happy again (Our current pup licking my toes because he knows I’m a little sad. 🙂
The hubby and dog have met new people at the dog park. I’ve smiled and said hello to strangers on the elevators but now real connections yet. Must find new drinking friends. Oh did I mention there is a local bar just steps from my building? No need for Uber now!
So while I am still sorting through the stuff, I have no regrets. This move is going to be awesome. Stay tuned for more adventures with me!
What is your midlife looking like?
Peace Love and Margaritas
