We made it!

So we’re here…we rolled in at 10:30 or so, made up the air mattress, and went to bed. The kitties are freaked, but Hootie seems to be handling it ok. Cola, on the other hand, is losing her freaking mind. She’s spent most of the day hiding under the sink in the bathroom.

We can’t officially check in to the house, because the person we need to speak with is on vacation. So we were officially told by the housing office to “Move in and enjoy it.” The only problem is that we don’t have keys, and we haven’t paid for anything. πŸ™‚ Guess that makes us squatters in the house, right? That, plus our stuff can’t be locked up…anytime we leave, the house stays unlocked. This didn’t seem unusual to anyone but us, though, so I’m guessing we’re ok.

Hope everyone is doing well!!

Glad you made it, kids. 27 boxes of books should be arriving tomorrow. Make sure you organize them by publisher, then title, genre and finally width.
