Setting Up An Apartment in Georgetown Part One: The Big Move
How did you spend your MLK weekend? My weekend was spent setting up an apartment in Georgetown (Washington DC) for my daughter Caroline and niece Katherine. Caroline is teaching at Saint Stephens Saint Agnes School and Katherine is completing a Masters Degree at American University. Both are recent college graduates and this is their first “real” apartment.
My husband and I loaded up our suburban and a trailer with family castoffs and furniture left behind in houses I have listed. It was a pretty motley collection but once assembled looks nice. My niece Katherine is a whiz with Craigslist and found a sofa and chair someone wanted to give away. Again, not bad…especially for free!
My husband and I left Atlanta, Georgia early Friday morning and by 7:00 pm we had the truck/trailer unloaded and most of the “stuff” stowed away. The weather was beautiful and things went far more smoothly than we would have anticipated.
The girls are now ready to start organizing and cleaning as they work to make their first home a place to remember. Who knew setting up an apartment in Georgetown could be so satisfying.
