Pineapple Street

May 4, 2010

We’re getting ready to move again.  If all goes well today, the people who live in the apartment we want to rent will be relocating to their brand new apartment a few blocks away, a cleaning service will scour the 1300 square foot space tomorrow, and on Thursday, we’ll be able to move our things in.  Scott and I have been without our own apartment for a long time.  We moved from Rio to Sao Paulo on December 2nd, dismantling something quite comfortable.  We lived in the flat at the Staybridge Suites until February, the two of us in one room, trying not to trip over one another and cooking all of our meals on one electric burner. From February on, we’ve been moving.  We stayed with Paulo and Edite for a week, then it was off to the north–to Pipa, Fortaleza, Jericoacoara, Salvador, Morro de Sao Paulo, Belo-Horizonte, Tiradentes, then back to Paulo and Edite’s, then Juquehy, and then Tryp with Lucy.  When Scott left (where he began the bounce between New York and Philadelphia) I stayed with Karen and Andre, then back with Paulo and Edite, and back and forth until Lindsay came and we went to Juquehy, then back to Sao Paulo, then to Rio.  Since I’ve come back to the US, Scott and I have alternated between our parents’ houses, added in a trip to North Carolina, a stay at the Holiday Inn on 26th Street.

This is all a long way of saying it’s time for us to have a place to live, to take all of our stuff out of storage, to have everything in the same apartment.  It will be nice to take stock of what we have and discover things we haven’t seen in a while.  I hope everything goes well, and we can move in, no snags.  For now, we’ll be driving back from Philadelphia to New York, after having packed up again last night.
