Ever since I moved to this area eight years ago, I have always loved the Ghent neighborhood in Norfolk. Roger and I finally live here! We found a cute two-bedroom apartment with a dining room. It has hard wood floors and a huge hall closet. It has a fairly small kitchen, the refrigerator is in the pantry, and a really, really tiny bathroom. But it is home for us right now and we love it.
We spent last night on the futon mattress and were both awake by 6 a.m. ready to get moved. We loaded most of our stuff on the truck and had it in the house by 1 p.m. Not bad. Roger did most of the carrying up the stairs, we live on the second floor, as I am getting over a cold.
Here is partially why I am so excited to live here: for lunch, I walked the block to Taste Unlimited and got a sandwich for me and salads for Roger. I then walked another block to 7-11 for Gatorade, and then home. I love this kind of life, pedestrian. Now if only ODU were still just around the corner, it would be perfect!
