We finally found an apartment, moved in, painted, and unpacked! That is why I had to abandon the internet for a few weeks. I still have two more rooms to paint and unpack, but I am using the heat as an excuse not to!
In between unpacking has been lots of Ikea shopping for things we never even considered needing. Things like wardrobes, shelves, and rugs. I never thought I would miss closets as much as I do now.
But, that is a small price to pay for living in Germany!
