As Tarek promised, the renovations will be done next week and I will be able to move in before Christmas. I won’t have a kitchen until sometime in January, unfortunately. But I’ve borrowed a refrigerator, have my microwave and can use the bathroom sink for water. So it may be more like camping than settling in, but I will be in my own home.
And the bathroom has turned out really great. I will finally be able to take a bath. And I have my new fancy Japanese-style toilet which I will have to figure out how to use.
Today I bought a washing machine and dryer. Did I mention that I have a little, separate laundry room? What a luxury.
Next week they will finish the floors and the following week the WiFi will be installed. I’m not sure when the bed will arrive. So Xmas may be aspirational but I still have my rental until January 8.
So merry Christmas to all and to all a happy homecoming.
