Radio Silence.

Last week I had an A average in my course…and then it was moving day.  Well, moving weekend.  Then unpacking and cleaning week.  Needless to say, things have been -crazy- around these parts…I've kissed my A goodbye and hope I can squeak by with a B!

Getting the UHAUL was a nightmare (I registered a week in advance to pick up a truck on Sunday, only to get a phone call on Saturday that the place was actually closed on Sunday.  But they said they'd give me an extra day if I could pick up that day.  So they found me a truck in Manchester, told me the place closed at 7, and Shaun took me to go pick it up.  60 miles and 1 hour later, the girl at the UHAUL place puts my name in the computer and says "Your reservation is for tomorrow."  She was able to call around and find me a truck in Massachusetts so we drove another 45 minutes and finally got the truck.) and moving was stressful (at one point I was just crying and couldn't stop but I didn't even know why) but the hard part is over.  Finally.

So we're getting settled into our two bedroom (yay) with a huge garden (yay!) and a dishwasher (finally!) and a washer and dryer (finally!).  There's still a lot of work to be done in the dining room and office mostly, but it's coming together.  The worst part is that Shaun's cat absolutely hates mine and will hiss whenever he comes near. 


I feel so sad for my poor cat. He keeps looking up at me with these sad eyes, like, "mama, why did you make me move in with this girl? she's bullying me!"  He tries to hiss back at her but it's just a wimpy little hiss, and then he runs in fear and hides…despite the fact he's twice (3x?) the size of Bean.

To top it all off I have bronchitis and a sinus infection.  (Bronchitis+Asthma made moving day -really- fun, let me tell you. /sarcasm.)   I think (hope) it's finally starting to clear up, though. I finally bit the bullet and went to a MinuteClinic yesterday to get some antibiotics and I definitely feel a bit better already.
