While Psychgrad is busy putting together the journey of the Bar Mitzvah cake, I thought I would sneak in and share the new digs with you.
I figure there are three types of people - a) those who handle change well and seem to be able to spin on a dime, keep on smiling and just forge forward, b) those that don't handle change well at all - life is just one huge drama after another and then c) those that think they handle change well but in reality end up sinking into the drama. We can be any one of these at any time in our lives depending on the situation. And let's not forget the "age" factor - the older we get, the more resistent we become to change. I'm definitely in category 3. These are solely my thoughts and not based in any scientific research so Psychgrad is not allowed to dispute my theories.
When I decided to sell the family home and move into a condo, I admit I was ambivalent. I'd never lived in an apartment style home before although the thought of being on one floor, as opposed to 3 levels of a house, was highly appealing. I started looking ... and looking ... and looking and was getting increasingly discouraged at the value for dollar availability in Toronto. As is the case in many cities, the closer one lives to good transportation, the higher the value of property. Also, the closer one lives to the city core, the more valuable the property.
I'm pleased to say, I finally found something I'm quite happy with and although the journey of unpacking and making it home is not over yet, it's well on it's way.
My kitchen - the calm before the movers showed up.
Need I say more?
Thank heavens for good help. Although the kitchen doesn't look this disorganized anymore, I'm waiting until it's restored to a neat and tidy kitchen before sharing more photos :).
