So, I talked with the realtor this morning in Venice and he informed me that my apartment was just painted (I didn't know that was going to happen!) and that there is a wardrobe (armoire) in my bedroom! Yahoo...now I have a place to store all those shoes! :-)
The suitcases are all packed and only one thing does not fit....might have to 're-do' on Sunday one last time to fit it in. They are really heavy....so glad there are porters everywhere because the last thing I want to do is schlepp 250 pounds around the world....yes, I said 250 pounds....5 suitcases and an eight pound cat!
