Ok, a little more time to talk to you all now. :)
First off, I have to say this:THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HELPED ME OUT
I can not express my thanks enough to you ladies and gents who sent kind words, moral support, packing support, painting support, moving assistance and unpacking support.
I am moved by the kindness that you all showed to me. Being this far away from my family means it's either me or nothing. I'm glad that I have this new family around me. I love all you guys so much.
Ok, so, before I start weeping, I FOUND MY USB CABLE!!! YAY!! I forgot that I switched out bags one day and the cable was in the other bag. YAY!!
I got a bit more moved in today. Hung up some more pictures, hung up the curio cabinet and put the shotglasses in. Hooked up my television and other media equipment and just let Vera roam around me. She's still feeling a bit insecure, but I think she'll be back to her crazy self in no time. She's got much nicer things to look at now. Not just a patio wall and someone else's patio. Now she has birds and leaves and trees to look at. I'm going to make her a little box to lay on so she can see out the window in the living room and just watch the world go by.
Took over the patio chair to lunarcamel
because the Rule Lady let footnotefetish
know that I wasn't allowed to have that outside. *sigh* I <3 my neighbors.
I have to call the cable company to transfer my internet over to my new place. Such a pain in the ass. They won't let you do it online. Only for new accounts. Dumbasses.
So much to do still, but now it's much more relaxed. I think if I don't find a subletter for the old place i'm just going to leave it be as far as cleaning goes. Let them deal with it. They are gonna charge me out the wazoo anyways. Effers.
I dragged (drug?) footnotefetish
out with me to Harbor Freight Tools so I could get some wall anchors. Not only did I find a whole set for hanging pictures (with wall mollies, too!) but I got a cordless drill and bit set for about $22. Woot! I <3 power tools almost as much as my friends.
Thanks again you guys, you really are the absolute best.
