My husband and I made the jump to Brooklyn, from an expansive one bedroom to a tiny studio. It was a great decision, I love our new neighborhood. However, organizing and making it livable is taking time. It’s been five days and just yesterday I was able to get dressed without cursing like a sailor under my breath while digging through boxes and shoving things around.
I’ve been constructing some very interesting outfits the past few days. Today was a simple sweater dress, a sweater vest containing a sparkly broach to cover a hole, topped off with an argyle cardigan. Trust me, it was cold and I was warm. I didn’t know what else to do in this weather! I like to keep my legs less covered with just tights to prevent overheating and was forced to wear boots AGAIN to survive the ginormous slush puddles all across the city. I love boots but I think I love variety more.
My husband, dog and I are crammed into our tiny space with just a bed to sit on and take out as our only meal options. Actually, tonight I had laughing cow cheese, saltines and wine because it was all we had. I already put on my pajamas, I was not leaving after that. I love being at home but my cozy bed is only so much room.
It is driving me bonkers and I’m certain by the fit of the dress today I’ve gained a few pounds. I can’t wait to get in the kitchen again and make some healthy, warm meals. I also have a lot of knitting projects lined up. Basically, I can’t wait to be a functioning adult again. Right now I’m in a dorm room without any studying to do.
