We Moved!

Moving could have been better, could have been worse. We did manage (with lots of help of friends who love us) to successfully get moved. Unfortunately, we now have two cars that don't work, one of which is stranded in another state! Luckily, we've got a trustworthy, reasonable mechanic in the works in the other state but we don't know what's wrong with the car yet. As for the broke-down car in town, keep your fingers crossed that it is just a battery problem!

I took my first (and easiest) final this morning. I'd like to say I'm soooooo happy that I only live about 5 blocks from school, that it is not cold anymore, and that I did well on the test! One more final today, two more tomorrow, then finishing off a research paper and then DONE! At least until Fall.

I think Crimson is going to LOVE the new apartment. There is a ton of kids here her age and they spend all day outside playing. The play area is right underneath my window, so I'll probably even let her out there without me! She'll be happy about that. I baby her a little too much sometimes.

The playground being so close is a little rough on Rejeanne though. She just sits at the window yelling at all the kids and wanting to go play. I took her out there for a couple hours yesterday and that seemed to make her feel better. I think she's going to get a lot more time outdoors (which means less is getting done inside the house, but oh well!)

I'll try to get some pics up of the new place once we get a little more settled in and school is over. I'll be glad to see the end of this week!

In the meantime, I'll give a little teaser. My apartment has 1970's tangerine countertops...a color only know to exist in modern times in very well preserved tupperware.

Great to hear that you have moved and that there is a play area close by. It's wonderful to think Crimson will have a wholesome outdoorsy summer. I hope you can post some new photos soon.
thanks for the books you sent. I know I will enjoy them immensely.
We met Veronica's family tonight. We had a wonderful time, she comes from a great big loving clan. I so enjoyed meeting all her family, siblings, parents, and a few others.
