Week in review: 19 – 25 April 2021

Another busy week, and April is almost over. Now that my wrist is back to almost normal (it is still a little stiff sometimes and swollen), I get all my work done much faster. Which feels excellent. It also means that I have a little more time for fun things. Like when I met my friend on Saturday and spent half the day with her. We looked at a rental apartment she is interested in, explored that neighborhood and enjoyed the warm spring sun.

In other news, our attorney informed us on Friday that we are finally officially in contract for the Condop we want to buy. A huge step towards that beautiful-amazing-fantastic apartment, which is in a former printing press building and thus has 4 meter high ceilings and giant windows. I hope I don’t jinx it, but I really can’t wait to move in and feel super cool living in that apartment. And to spend my summer vacation mostly on the building’s furnished rooftop – with a view of Midtown.
