NEW HOME, DAY 1
I can’t even begin to find enough adequate words to describe the kind of pain my back is in right now. All afternoon I hauled boxes, bags and furniture with Rebecca, Tania and Angie. Somehow we managed to load up my entire life in three pick-up truck loads and haul them across town. And now, I’m “home.”

I don’t have on ounce of regret in leaving the apartment I lived in for so many years. It was time for a change and time for something new, and this new place is lovely, Hubbell. There is a sea of boxes around me, but I’ve managed to set up my bed with clean sheets (albeit low-down in hopes of bringing a dog home soon), my new couch, new Ikea furniture and new TV.
Tomorrow I’ve decided to take another day off work to tackle all my belongings and put them in their spots. I have a sneaking suspicion that another trip to Ikea will be very necessary soon. I’m someone who hates to have too much out of order, so the sooner I can unpack, the better. And besides, my darling Ashley is coming to spend a wonderfully gin-tastic weekend with me, so this place need to be presentable.
Another huge, huge thank you to my ladies for all their help today. Beer and pizza isn’t much to show my gratitude, but when it’s your turn, “I’m there for you, babes.“
