I am sad to report that despite all our efforts and the hassles we've endured, we didn't get the condo. I'll spare you the details, but bottom line is, Saturday night we signed a new lease at our old apartment and are ready to get back to a normal life. Since we had to move everything back in, my amazing, genius and generous hubby had an inspired idea: why not move my studio into the master bedroom? We're only in there to sleep, so why not use the bigger room for the studio. The challenge was to get the king sized bed into that little room. We did it! It's tight, but we can make it work.
So if you end up in the very same place, have you really moved? I can answer unequivocally, yes. In fact, you can "move" multiple times and never really move at all.
Superstorm Sandy was a grim reminder that any home is better than no home at all.
