This last week, I've definitely progressed into the second stage. I'm moving out of my hotel accommodations into my apartment, which is exciting but also very stressful. My hotel is over a 2 hour bus ride from my apartment or a 230 Dhs cab ride. That can make it taxing when you need to go to the apartment every day during a week but it isn't yet livable. On Sunday and Monday, I ordered the furniture and appliances that our apartment needed and then I went to the apartment on Tuesday to make sure I could get in (the first time we visited the exterior door was locked) and check the condition. We (the other residents) were told it would be cleaned prior to us moving in. Sadly, this did not happen, so on Tuesday, I spent several hours procuring cleaning supplies and began cleaning.

In a few weeks, probably even in a few days, this will not seem like such a big deal. I'm going to be happy to present my family with our functional new home, and they will be able to help me finish preparing and personalizing. It will be good.
