Got everything into the new place on Saturday despite the fact that one of my strong helpers had to work and despite the fact that I didn't really start packing until Friday.
I lucked out when the truck rental place didn't have any 10' trucks and had to give me a 15' one. I had way more stuff than I thought. We totally could have crammed it all into a 10' truck, but it was nice not to have to stack things to the ceiling all the way to the end. My plants appreciated it, I think.
I lucked out again when I discovered that several of my neighbors want to share their wireless internet with me. They told me this by not securing their networks.
I did not have time to go to a grocery store today to get produce for dinner, but since I am so lucky, tayarrow
planted some yellow cherry tomatoes and 7 of them were ripe enough to pick on Saturday. Now they are in my
Even though I will probably not be entirely unpacked by the time my lease is up, I am pretty happy with the place. There are a few things that aren't great, like the lack of spoon rest space and the thing where a bunch of my neighbors used to work for my boyfriend but were fired, and now want to hurt him... but there is a new bathroom sink and vanity, and a big red bug (see figure 3.2) on the wall, and ghosts on the window, and a 20 minute commute, and $100 monthly rent savings, so I'll just get some mace and hope the guys next door don't hold a grudge too long. It's very likely that they are all illegally in this country, so I'm thinking they wouldn't really do anything to get into trouble, and that their threats are empty.
Let's hope anyway.Other Things That Are Good or Bad
TacoCat has lost his mind and spends daytime in my bed and nighttime howling at nothing. (This is bad, but will hopefully gradually decrease over time)
There are people living above me and they move around sometimes and I can hear them. (This is bad, but I will get used to it)
I bought tons of tulip bulbs with money I don't have. (This is good, once I figure out where to plant them)
Indoor plants will do really well here because of the large amount of light pouring into the place. (This is good, if we ignore Mr. Wallace's bulimic tendencies)
