We are moving to a town closer to R’s job. I’ve found a job at the local elementary school which allows me to use my Spanish degree as well as enjoy summers off. Can’t beat it.

That being said, we are moving this weekend into a itty-bitty apartment so I may be off-line for awhile. The new place is almost half of what we currently are living in. The good thing is that it’s forcing us to reduce our material possessions (garage sale!) and get creative with storage solutions. One idea that we are going forward with is the sleeping arrangement. Our queen bed will be sold and do you know what that leaves us with? A twin. My mom doesn’t think it can be done, but I want to try. At the very least it will be a good catalyst to exercise frequently, just so I can fit on it. Is this crazy? I think our mindset is that in order to achieve our goals for the next few years, we need to be uncomfortable (square footage, less household items — although this may make us more comfortable, sharing one car, sleeping in a twin bed without killing each other after the first week.) We’ll see how it goes. 
In the meantime, check out this great website for organizing and decorating small places. Some people are so clever.

    We always have to share a twin bed when we go back to my parents. We can last for a few days but then it gets old. Good luck!!!

    That's incredible. I am friends with a couple here in Japan, and they share a twin bed. Seems to be working alright for them. Not sure I could do it, though.
