Wow, it's been a long time since I was active on my journals. I see LiveJournal has continued to make dubious business decisions while I was gone. InsaneJournal seems to be the best option for a new location. I was torn between here and GreatestJournal but apparently the latter isn't living up to its name.

Anyway, we're officially moved in, the last box has been unpacked. I found a job at the local craft store so that's cut down on the amount of time I have to manage the house. I don't need the job really, my SO makes enough for both of us, but it's a bit tighter than it was with the higher cost of living here. And I don't have the network of friends and family here to get me out of the house regularly. The employee discount doesn't hurt either.

We've taken the basement and finished up the finishing enough to make it a viable craft and art space, which makes doing laundry not that much of a chore. I can work on projects while waiting on the washer and dryer. That's much more convenient than our old set up with the rental space, though it might be a bit cramped if we take a trip to recover the rest of our supplies from where we left them in storage. We have time to work out the kinks in the system before then, I refuse to move cargo in winter when I don't have to.

The other half has accepted the job offer, a house has been rented (a house! It's cheaper than the apartments in the area!) and the packing has begun.

We have a lot of stuff between the two of us. It didn't seem like that much when we started, the apartment isn't that big, but then we had to face the storage unit/studio/work shop....

Yeah. Two creative and artistically minded people collect a lot of things as potential art/craft supplies and giving them a storage space with lots of shelving? Not a good idea. I think we'll have to grab the tools and supplies we use most/will use in the immediate future and continue paying on this unit until we/I can come back and sort it into "stuff to move", "stuff to sell", and "stuff to get rid of somehow" piles. I also need to investigate the possibility of transferring this unit to my uncle, it would save a lot of headaches.

The other half has a really good job offer so we're going to go investigate the area and hopefully find affordable housing within a reasonable commuting distance. Assuming we can, or that we at least determine that housing costs plus commuting costs won't make the new higher paying job pay less than the old one, the offer will be accepted and the packing will commence.

If we're really lucky we'll be able to make the decision quickly and I'll won't be stuck packing and moving the bulky stuff by myself while the SO is off in an empty apartment camping out on the floor and commuting to the new job.
