it's fine. we're waiting for the washing machine guys. really domestic stuff, all household issues this week. once the setup is done i'm sure -and i want to be sure- that i will be more artistic or literary, or philosophical, whatever you name it. but we're enjoying this place, really enjoying it. and the one thing i'm really glad that i knew what i was looking for, when i was apartment-hunting. i saw decent places in more familiar neighborhoods we could have liked but i had the kind of kitchen we had in mind and i knew the kind of life we would be living. and that really worked for us. i hope it keeps working.
