Just checking in
We have arrived in NC, safe and sound! The move was surprisingly easy. This is the first time we've used an actual moving company. We always just rented a U-Haul and did it ourselves, but we've reached the critical mass of crap that it's not really possible anymore. Having large men carry everything was fantastic. (And they could really heft some heavy stuff! I'd packed up my books so carefully in small-ish boxes, but they were carrying 2-3 at a time.)
Above is our new stoop. We have a stoop! Aren't the flowers nice? A housewarming gift from my mom. The new apartment is great and it's lovely and hot here. I'm going to the pool tomorrow. ;)
I'm completely sick of unpacking, but we've got most of the place done. Except for the craft room. (We have an extra bedroom here and we've decided to make it half and half a craft studio for Twin and a home office for me.)
Yeah, that's pretty much wall-to-wall stuff. You can't really even enter the room right now. Ugh.
And if you haven't seen enough pictures of my TBR yet, here it is in its new home. It's in its own bookcase now. Well, partly. I thought sure they were all going to fit---but not even close. I think this picture is big, so if you click on it you can read the titles. The top left hand corner are my high priority books. ;)
In reading news, I'm still making my way through HP5. And I've just been to the bookstore to reserve Twin's and my copies of Deathly Hallows for next Friday. Yippee!
