Toto, we're not in Michigan anymore...

I'm in my apartment, my internet hookup has arrived, and I've found my laptop and accessories in the mass of boxes.

So here I am, back in the blogosphere.

Frankly, I'm exhausted. Between dragging my stuff up, shoving it around my little studio apartment, and putting stuff away, it's a little much. That my apartment isn't perfectly organized yet is bugging me to death. I don't like it. My floors are still dusty, but I had to move everything in before I could wipe things up. At the end of the day, my feet end up grey-black.

I want to wave my magic wand and yell "Reparo!" but I don't think that will work.

I'm almost too tired to think coherently. Even once I get my stuff unpacked, I have to keep plugging away at my class. Yikes. The date keeps getting closer and closer and I keep sinking deeper and deeper into denial that this is really happening.

So instead of moaning and despairing all selfish and such, I'm going to leave ya'll with some photos of the move.

I have a couple more pictures, but I'm getting really bored of uploading. Besides, dinner needs cooking and there's much more to tell. And tell it I shall, as soon as I am fed and have a working brain.

Welcome home!

I know the feeling - wishing that I knew the spells that Mrs. Weasley performed so wonderfully to keep her house tidy. And to cook dinner.

These were great pictures, carrie.

Welcome to your new home!

I hope my anorexic cat isn't a sign of impending doom.


Mrs. Weasley rocks on so many levels. So many. I love what she said to Bellatrix in HP7. Hey, there are house elves working the elevators here- they're quite old- so I don't know why a few spells and charms couldn't work their magic on my stack of bags, boxes and newsprint.

Excellent - I'm so glad you're settling.

It's great to hear from you. I'm sure you'll make it your own home, and Aria's, soon enough. Nesting takes time so be patient.You'll have it feeling cozy soon enough. Nourishment first as it's your primary job, that and feeding of your anorexic cat. :)
We'll be there in spirit helping you along.

Welcome to the east coast Carrie! Once you figure out those spells to get your place in order, let me know. Can't wait to meet you! Driving anxiety aside, I did drive up to Baltimore this summer, so I know I can do it again. Going to visit karma this evening (don't worry if that doesn't make sense to you, I know what I mean, heh) and I'll ask her to send you some calming, no-stress vibes.

Welcome yo. Baltimore is really nice, if you never ever leave the Inner Harbor or Fells Point.

I was just there for a Sox/Orioles game a few weeks ago, and I've been a few times. I still have a t-shirt with the Natty Bo (locally brewed piss beer) logo. Good times await you.

Hope things are getting more settled for you!

carrie said...

Thanks for the comments. I'm getting settled in, bit by bit. I have a little more to do to get stuff actually put away, and then it's on to dealing with the floors. They renovated parts of the apartment, which turned out really nice. They did not, however, do a spectacular job of cleaning up after themselves.

Sarah said...

Hey girl, welcome home!! I have those same bookcases. But my cat is bulimic.

I hope you're both settling in!!

Thanks for your support this week.

Lindsay said...

Carrie, I have the same shelves! :)
