I am moved. Well, for the most part. We moved on Tuesday from a little one-bedroom apartment to a three-level rental townhouse. The last time we moved, we abused our friends, and it was something of a fuster cluck, as some of you may remember. This time we hired movers, and while it wasn't cheap, it was at least efficient. We got a quote for 6 hours, and it took them 5.5 hours, so we did save a bit of money. We also have until Oct 31 to finish out the lease on the apartment, so we had the movers take the larger items and many heavy boxes, then we're slowly transporting over what's left. Then we have to clean the old apartment. Anyone like cleaning more than I do? I'm about tired of that place. LOL
We're going to have a roommate in the new place. Some of you may know Matt, aka "Hetrosexual Lifepartner." He's moving most of his stuff in today some time, but he's staying at his parent's place for the rest of the week because he's dog/house sitting for them. Yesturday the dog figured out that he could actually get up the stairs, and he spent a good part of the day in Matt's room. We figured if Matt didn't hurry up and get himself in, we would let the dog have his room. LOL Unfortunately after following me up and down the stairs a couple times, the dog got tired of them and refused to come down to get his dinner. I had to carry him down the stairs...I don't recommend this after a long day of running back and forth between apartment and house, and lugging stuff around. This may be why my shoulder hurts this morning...
The cat seems to be setteling in well. She spends most of the time in our bedroom, where her food and kitty box are. There's also a window where we put the bed, and last night I opened it up for her (no, it had nothing to do with the pleasent night breeze...not at all...) She sat on my husband's pillow and looked out the window for quite awhile. She does like to follow me around a bit when I'm there though, which will be a problem once Matt moves in, because we'll probably have the doors closed a bit more often. She's going to go nuts trying to get into the bathroom when I'm showering, or out of the bedroom when I leave in the morning for work. Otherwise, she seems to be happy with the arrangement.
Neither of the animals has yet discovered the basement, which is furnished. This will be where the boys will have the "nerd den." There was talk of calling it a "man cave" but I can see myself down there as well, so I suggested it would be more aptly titled the "nerd den." We'll see what sticks. Once the boys are down there more often, the dog will probably end up down there as well. He wasn't happy about being left alone in the house yesterday. Every time I came back from a "stuff" run, he would jump up on the back door and peer out the window with is big, sad eyes. He even barked once when I was leaving...poor baby.
We got the internet set up without a problem. Though my husband did say he had to enter the user name and password something like 33 times. I don't know if this is an exaggeration or not, but at least it worked each time he had to enter it...and that's pretty good, because I wasn't 100 percent sure on the user name. I usually copy and paste it when I need to access something at the internet provider site.
Well, that's probably enough for now. I'm at work today and I'm rather tired...but I did get surprised with donuts this morning, so all is well.
