Trial Commute

We are undergoing the arduous process of buying our first home in a small town, about 30 minutes outside of Manhattan.  We both work in midtown, so being close to the city was an important factor in our decision.

On Friday, I decided to do a trial run of our new commute.  It took about 55 minutes door to door.  The actual bus ride should only be about 20-25 minutes, but it took me some time to find the gate and the line to board the bus was pretty long.  I am hoping that it will be smoother once we actually move, which right now is looking like early February if we’re lucky.

On Saturday, we spent some time at our new place picking out finishes.  More on that in a later post.

While Mike was waiting for me to get off the bus he enjoyed the view of the river that runs near our new house.  Of course we are nervous and excited about this next big step in our lives.  Hopefully all of the stress will be worth it once we are settled in.
