We made it (phew)
Box mountain was transported from Chicago to New York. Finally.
In fact, there are so many boxes we can barely move around the apartment. Literally, we have to scale box mountain to go to the bathroom or to the kitchen (the worst of it is in the kitchen actually). This apartment is significantly smaller than our last place and even though we got rid of most of our furniture we are quite challenged by the space! The cable guys came this morning and almost cried (haha).
While we were moving they were still painting and finishing up the bathrooms so that was interesting. It's not like we had anywhere to go, we were sitting on the street in the truck - idling, because it was 100 degrees out and we were overheating, so we just unloaded around them. Good times.
Today I go to IKEA to purchase all of our furniture and then wait around for them to deliver it. Oh yeah, and move things around and unpack things so we can fit it in. OY.
