Day One

Our first night was good. I was so tired yesterday afternoon, but somehow managed to stay up until midnight. Around 4am Ben woke me up by standing at the front door and meowing. I think he was saying he wanted to leave. Bonk was sound asleep on the bed and Sophie was sleeping on the couch. She looked pretty comfortable to me. Then around 7:30am Sophie woke me up to go outside. So I had to get up and make myself look somewhat presentable since I now have several hundred people living by me. I will say that Sophie is doing so well with adjusting. I went to the grocery store and when I left I stood by the front door to see if she was barking. All I heard was silence. When I got back I met the guy that lives above me. His name is Tom and he seems very nice. He told me that if he ever makes too much noise to just let him know. It seems I am lucky with my neighbors.

Here are some pictures:
Third time is a charm. Something tells me I have taken a picture just like this. :)

"I will not get in the kennel"

I love this picture of Bonk. She checked every since box to make sure it was completely empty.

I am standing at my front door and this shows how close the pool, workout room and laundry room.

Here is my front door. I thought the apartment was going to be darker, but this window actually lets a lot of light in. Today the temps are in the 60s, so I also have the front door open. Sophie is enjoying looking out the screen door.

I am standing in the bedroom looking at the living room. Notice Sophie's new toy? Because she has been so good I bought her a treat today.

And here is my kitchen. I have 3 cabinets above the sink/stove. Thank goodness I am not all into the cooking thing. :)

Other side of the kitchen. I don't even have enough counter space for my microwave. I still have some organizing to do and don't want my kitchen this cluttered.

I am standing at my front door looking into the bedroom. The cable outlet is on the left side of this picture and Time Warner wasn't sure if they could get it hooked up yesterday. Thankfully they fished the wire under the carpet and my weekend was saved.
Bedroom. I love that I have a door in the bedroom, but I doubt I will ever use it. I really can't open it with the bed right there.


Walk-in closet. I still have a lot of boxes to go through, so hopefully in a few weeks there will be less boxes in here.

And now for something that I have not had in my house in the last 10 years:

When I moved into my house ten years ago there was no toilet paper holder. And for some reason I never installed one; even after the bathroom was remolded. My Dad always said that I had a learning disability when it came to changing the toilet paper roll. I guess I will see if he is actually right.

After reading Sandra's post for today, I am going to work hard at making my home more Feng Shui in terms of love and romance. I had heard of a couple of the things she talks about and I am willing to give it a shot.

Right now the temperature is in the 60s, but we have a cold front heading in and this cold front means business. We are suppose to get strong t-storms this afternoon and tonight and by tomorrow morning we will have 2-4 inches of snow. I am not sure what is better: Having tomorrow and Tuesday off or the fact that we might get more snow.

Good to hear you move went well!!

Your new place looks cozy! How nice to have the workout/pool building so nearby. I'm glad you're all moved in.

I'm sure you will enjoy the weather much more than I will tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to dragging two children in the snow to Target (we really need diapers).

Looks like you're doing a great job with the move.

Heeeyyyy. That's not bad! It does look cozy! I'm happy for you that you are generally settled and that the babies are adapting. I hope Ben does OK. And I'm *very* glad you have a toilet paper holder!! LOL!!

Congrats on the move! It looks nice and cozy, and perfect for you and the gang.

Sandra said...

Good thing they got the cable installed, I would NOT have been a happy camper if I moved somewhere and found out I couldn't have cable!

Sonya said...

Congrats on YOUR new space! It looks really perfect and cozy.

Patti said...

You really had no TP holder all that time? You non-conformist!
