Space. The final frontier. These are the voyages of NetChick and IAmAJenius. Their mission: To find each other in their new home. Now that we’ve pretty much finished moving and unpacking what few belongings we brought with us to Calgary, it’s become obvious this lifestyle will take some getting used to.
When one goes from 750 to 3000 square feet of living space (including the basement, not including the garage) it’s amazing how different daily life can be. Here are the top five as I see them…
5. Moving from claustrophobia to agoraphobia
4. Communication goes from hand gestures and nodding to yelling and intercoms (even when we’re not disagreeing )
3. It becomes surprisingly lonely when in a room by myself for more than a minute or two
2. Cleaning is now a scheduled, full day event
And Number 1….. Four, count ‘em FOUR TV’s!!!
Honourable mention goes to the paranoia of not being able to see all your possessions by turning your head from side to side. But despite any downsides, we both LOVE LOVE LOVE this home!
Well, it’s lunch time – have to put on my running gear and leave for the kitchen. Should only take me about 15 minutes if I walk fast… after all, I’m upstairs.
