Hi! Sorry for the lack of updates, but the whole moving things took my motivation to blog.

We have all our stuff at the house and did the check-out for the apartment today. We are going to get our whole deposit back, which is quite nice. Barely anything is put away yet, but I have a fairly decent idea of where everything is, which helps a bit. Most of the kitchen is put away, but since we are going to be putting up shelving for my baking supplies on one wall along with our pot rack, there is still a lot of stuff just hanging out in odd spots. The bedroom is painted and looks great. I wish I could share a picture, but I can't seem to locate the cord to transfer them to my compy. The wall color is latte and the ceiling is divine white. There isn't going to be anymore painting for awhile.

Work is going really well. I love the people, and there is enough variety that I don't get bored. I have applied for a job in receiving to pick up a few more hours there, so I don't need to go find another part-time job else where.

Ok, I am going to play Wind Waker now. Wiiiiii!!!!!! (It's actually a for GameCube)

The truck is in the shop due to a frozen/locked/stuck caliper on the rear passenger wheel of our rear-wheel driven truck. For those wondering, the caliper is what the brake pads rub against to stop your vehicle. I know this because I watched Josh and his dad change them on my car a few months ago when my car started making grinding noises when I braked or turned.

This means, instead of driving 5 minutes to work today I am taking a 1+ hour bus ride well, actually two different buses with a 15 minute wait between the two buses. I would just walk if the wind chill wasn't hovering around -20F today. Oh well, at least I will get some knitting or reading time.

There is fresh paint on the walls, some of them anyway, and a new washer a dryer in the laundry room. Washing laundry without quarters is almost fun. We have purchased a couch and will pick it up later this week. We should be able to finish painting the living room on Wednesday and maybe get a start on our bedroom so we can move in our living room and bedroom furniture. I didn't bring my camera when we were painting but Josh's mom got some pics, so I will share if she sends them to me.
