So Thursday was a loooooong day of moving stuff around – but, two truckloads later, everything is in the new apartment (stuffed into one of the bedrooms for now). I don’t even want to think about unpacking yet. We officially get to live there starting tonight, so we’re pretty excited!
Yesterday, after trying to recover our sore muscles from lifting boxes (and from camping out on an air mattress in Michiel’s empty apartment), we got some good news! His parents called and said there was a letter for me from the Immigration Department that my residence permit had been officially accepted and that I could come pick up my new Dutch identification card! Yaaaay! Now, all I’m waiting for is my social security number from the Municipality, so I can get things like a bank account and a phone plan. Hopefully that’s not too far down the pipeline :)
