The move's complete, we're almost unpacked, and my office is set up enough to rejoin the online world and hang the 'open' sign! :)
And was this move worth it? Here's a photo of the view out our front window:
There's nothing across the street from us but woods! That's several square miles of the Iowa Greenbelt right there, with a lazy curve of the Des Moines River beyond that, and then yet more woods. We see deer wander around every now and then, and I'm sure more wildlife sighting is in store.
The bulldozers in the foreground are building a scenic bike trail, which is all the development the area's going to get.
So, yes, it was worth it. Just perfect for us cantankerous, grouchy hermit types who want to retreat from the rest of you noisy people so we can contemplate our masterpieces.
Bonus Buck: My karma twin, Eric at Binary World, also moved. I swear we don't plan to do everything at the same time, we just have matched biorhythms or something. Anyway, he has an interesting photoblog about the move. Much more of an adventure than our move, since he's buying and we rent.
Why do we rent? Because civilization is an illusion.
