It’s still a mess. There’s still plaster on the floor and dust on the shelves, the furniture is all over the place, all of our artwork was taken from the walls, and I don’t even know where to start with the kitchen. We have a lot of cleaning, organizing, and transferring to do. It will probably take several days to settle back in.
And I couldn’t care less. I’m home. I’m sitting on my own sofa, watching TV, and watching Adam read stories to Ethan before putting him to bed in his own room for the first time in over three weeks.
This feels even better than I expected. We’ll be opening a bottle of $4 champagne and watching a Harry Potter movie or two, going to sleep in our own apartment, and thanking our lucky stars that we have it so good.
