The movers have just left (for the second day, they didn’t manage to finish yesterday!) and I am about to start cleaning the apartment while O is off to the office. Tomorrow we move out of the apartment, which has been our home for 2,5 years, and check into the Condado Plaza Hotel*. It will be nice with some luxury: relaxing by the pool, eating out (after having eaten left-overs for the last couple of days) and meeting up with friends for the last time [for now].
Living room with our stuff that will be air-shipped in the middle, 438 lbs in total (mostly clothes packed in air-tight SpaceBags). The furniture belongs to the apartment, except for the leather arm chair seen on the right (we have two).
Result of the move: 100 items! The movers were complaining about the amount of books we (actually I) have and O threatened to sell them all on eBay 😦
To sum up our feelings right now, as expressed by O yesterday evening: [I] can’t believe that we are actually leaving, and [I] feel homeless… Who knows when we will have a proper home again!? Hopefully in a few months’ time…
We wanted to stay in Puerto Rico until Monday but when Iberia suggested us flying San Juan – New York – Barcelona – Madrid, we decided that Sunday was good enough (with a DIRECT flight to Madrid!)! We will spend a week with O’s family in Spain and then we head to Brussels, and I am already lining up dinners with friends 🙂
*) Features in the [crap] film Men who stare at goats with George Clooney, as a hotel in Kuwait in the 1980’s! (I haven’t liked any of George’s so-called comedies, he’s just not funny!)
