The Big Move

The past week has been quite an adventure. I had my first experience taking the ultimate road trip... 33 hours! I'm used to multiple hours in planes, not cars. All in all, it wasn't as bad as I expected and we spread it out over three days. Once we finally got to New Jersey, we spent a few nights in a hotel due to unfinished apt... and then another few nights in our "finished" but unfurnished apartment. Anyway, we finally got our furniture this morning, so the move in is now complete! We couldn't be happier with where we're living. Our complex is in Fort Lee, New Jersey and is about a ten minute walk from the George Washington bridge, which goes across the Hudson to the Bronx. After that, it's just a subway ride into downtown NYC. Not bad.
Driving a car around here takes some getting used to... lots of highways, lots of angry drivers, and most of all, lots of horns!
It's a different world out here, but we like it so far!
