I am in Madison now, settling in to the apartment. My parents split time between Madison and South Carolina, with my mother spending most of her time here and my father spending most of his time in South Carolina. They have a house in the south, but up here they rent an apartment. They moved apartments since I was last in Madison (in February) so today I came "home" to a place that I had never been before. It's nice though. It definitely has certain advantages over the old apartment -- for instance 2 bedrooms instead of 1. It's weird to go home and visit your family and be in an unfamiliar place. I have finally gotten accustomed to the house in South Carolina (where I have never lived) and I had just gotten used to my mother's old apartment in Madison. Now it is time to readjust. My family moved quite a bit when I was growing up. I think we lived in 7 or 8 different houses. I always hated the transitions. I have always enjoyed being in familiar spaces, and it takes me a bit of time to warm up to a new space. I can't complain though -- having my own bedroom here is awesome! I used to have to sleep in the family room at the old apartment. At least until Spencer gets here on Friday, I have a room of my own!
