It is undoubtedly long due, but D and I are moving in together. We are not sure if it is going to be in my place or in a rented place. It will take place sometime during March, after I take the GRE. The catalyst to this decision is D's landlord, who decided to terminate her lease before it's due date in the end of April.
Obviously, some changes will have to be made. The small room will become the cat's room. My library will move to the little balcony I have, which - like the bedroom - will be off-limit to the cats. D's appliances and furniture will be examined, some will be sold, some will move here and some will be shipped abroad, to our new home. Hopefully, we will not have to store it in a warehouse for too long.
A careful planning is required, with deadlines and dependencies. Reorganizing two homes is a project, and like any other project it requires time, effort and has its risks. With careful planning we will be able to overcome all of them.
Moving in together will also take our relationship to a new level. A better one.
