Ah! I'd wondered how you'd missed a particular link recently. ^_^
Personally, I love moving in.. a new neighborhood to explore, new shops, not to mention the fun of getting all the artwork onto the walls. (Modulo some concession for a landlord not familiar with furriness, if they're the sort to visit frequently - I only put a little up on the walls back at one place, while they were dropping by every week or two, gradually adding more. That only lasted a couple weeks, though, after which I put up the whole shebang) Of course, it helps that I don't have any furniture to worry about, beside the futon, so it's just a matter of lots of boxes. Did you have stairs to the front door to contend with? ISTR the house was a Queenslander, though I could be mistaken. That'd certainly detract from the fun.
