Default I'm back!

I am fully and officially moved in, thanks mostly to the amazing packing skills and just general wonderfulness in helping from our very own Smkie. She was the only one who helped at all and even gave up part of three days to do so! Meanwhile, all the big strong guys that I lived next to just sort of made themselves scarce after telling me I should come back to hang out after I was moved in.

I got everything hooked back up today, after a quick trip to Lowe's to get a plug adapter. Just about everything in this house is the old two-prong outlets and much of my stuff, especially on the computer, is the grounded three-prong. They're only $0.69/ea. though, so it worked out nicely.

I still have a TON of stuff left to unpack, but I'm finding that I'm having to clean a lot before I can really put stuff away. I spend over 3 hours just scrubbing down the kitchen cabinets yesterday...the people who lived here before us were filthy SLOBS. I've made things change colors...the cabinets are actually really white and not sticky to the touch anymore...all the leftover crap on the shelves is gone and I don't feel like I'm going to give myself food poisoning from putting the dishes and stuff in there now. I'm also dealing with a fun ant infestation because of all the sticky stuff that was spilled and never cleaned up and the flour/sugar/etc that was left in the cabinets. But the kitchen does look nice now. Today is "office day" since I've gotten the computer hooked up again. This is where most of the boxes landed after being unloaded just to get them out of the way, so it's a wide assortment of stuff. I'm hoping to find the rest of my pants...not sure which box they ended up in.

OH! I also had my first $1000+ party this weekend! That's my best ever so far! In one night, I earned $400.

So that's the update. The dogs are LOVING this place, Sawyer is back to being healthy and eating the Kirkland again--he's also sleeping on the bed again too. Virgo caught and killed a rabbit in the backyard the other night...I'm still not sure if I should be proud or horrified. I let her eat part of it, then took it away because I wasn't sure how many fleas and stuff it was carrying and even though we're back on Frontline, I don't want them in the house. She pranced around for an hour after that, just incredibly proud of herself.

Congrats - it's such a nice feeling getting a new place.

WB Zoom. I'm glad you and the doggys like the place. And its nice to hear that they ae feeling better again.
I hate it when people dont take care of a house then you end up getting it and have to pick up after them... My dad and I are STILL fixing up this place we have. People before us were SLOBS too.

But Congrats on the new place!

rock if only your house warming party wasn't the same day as as our big raku fundraiser.... I haven't figured out how to do both yet.
We are without power today because a yellow truck plowed into the pole and took it down. So i get to say hey on line here at the guild. No point in staying home with the lights out. Glad your moved in, hope you find everything. I marked on teh box if i thought it was something important, other then that i packed in layers, where it was went in the box in the order i folded or found it. Thats how i always do it.

Go Petie Go Go Who Go!
