Sure is a big white door

After almost 2 years of waiting, M and I are the proud residents of a separated apartment. What does this mean to those of you who haven’t made your way over? Before, there used to be a big closet shaped hole (a finished hole, mind you) in our bedroom wall which opened into the foyer of the empty apartment next to us. During this 2 year wating period we used this foyer to come and go, to store our bikes and to give the mighty Zeus a little room to strech his legs. But now, in a whirlwind of activity where there was once empty space, is now a huge closet. Where there was once dry wall is our very own door.

It’s going to take a little bit of adjustment. When I opened my eyes this morning I expected to see the hole and hear Zeus racing back and forth through it. But there was just big white doors. I thought about all the things that were neatly organized in that closet, about how we have a proper entrance way with lots of places for our keys, coats and shoes and I smiled. I smiled the smile of an obsessive organizer who’d gorged herself in an orgy of sorting.

Of course now that this apartment is pretty much sorted out and organized, it’s time to move.
