the big move

….is happening this weekend - wish us luck! i’ve found a trusted mover that can help us with our stuff, and we also found a buyer for our two aircon units who will purchase them for a fair price. yey, now we have a budget to get a new fridge! (i’m still working it out if he can buy our old fridge, too!)

last weekend was so tiring for us, but we’re happy we managed to do a lot of legwork related to the move. we even had time to spare to attend a birthday party and answer a friend’s S.O.S. we have signed the contract for the new flat’s lease, settled all payments & deposits, and got the keys turned over to us. we also moved a number of small items to our new flat. thanks to Ace Hardware’s Rental Scheme, we were able to borrow a trolley for a minimal fee (AED 23 – USD 6.25), which helped Ryan immensely in moving lots of boxes and items at a time without having to worry about breaking his back! we were treated afterwards to good company & a nice dinner meal courtesy of my cousin, Sarj.

this week will be a lot busier for us but we really don’t mind. we’re excited to move to our new home, and we can’t wait to start decorating (and baby proofing!) it.
