Why hello, it's been a while, hasn't it? As usual, things have been a little hectic around here. I've recently started working more hours at my job (yay!), which means more commuting and more time in the office.
While we initially moved to Salem because Eric's job was here (he's now working, you guessed it, back in Boston!) and I was mostly working from home, we're now trying to move back into Boston.
Though we love Salem, I've felt somewhat isolated living here. Having to rely on the commuter rail schedule was never ideal, so moving back to a location closer to the subway will make things a heck of a lot easier.
We've been looking at apartments for the past few weeks, and I've spent what seemed like endless hours searching craigslist, Zillow, Trulia, etc for an apartment that could fit our somewhat specific needs: 2+ bedrooms, pet friendly, updated kitchen (you wouldn't believe how many apartments don't have dishwasher), outdoor space/proximity to a park for Maggie, a decent price point...
Thankfully, we finally put a deposit down on an apartment and will be moving to Roslindale some time in March!
