Coat of Arms

Well, we're "home"

Got up this morning at the hotel, watched some "Mr & Mrs Smith", had breakfast, went over lease, went back to room, engaged in now-familiar routine of pack up everything, get cart, get cats into carriers, get everything (including cats) on cart, check out, pack everything into car, and leave.

Came over to new apartment complex and signed rent. Had to fix a few pages because we found out that in order to get a cable modem, we have to subscribe to the $30 a month basic cable that the complex offers.

Got everything from car into apartment. Left cats in bathroom.

Went out, picked up air-matress from raven_lenore (feel better hon!), which we will use until our stuff gets here, ate at near-by Whole Foods (looking around the food court, it felt a lot like being in the Valley), went to Linen & Things and Petco for stuff for the place (like shower curtains) and for the cats (new litter boxes - the ones from before were 2 years old and pretty gross), and came back to our new home.

Let the cats explore the place while setting up acquired items. I think Boris lost some weight on this journey.

Slowly starting to get a feel for the area. Sometimes can make the best of a wrong turn.

Time to go to the further away L&T for some items that weren't at the close by one. Oh, and hopefully find a "regular" grocery store.
