Settling  
Another day of cleaning and moving stuff around and doing all the tedious things related to moving, like changing all my addresses. I still feel like I'm just visiting despite it all. It's very weird to not have a job to go to. I suppose it will all settle down eventually.

Let's see... what news to share...

Well, the internet here is screamingly faster than in Monterey, so that's been nice.

My new phone number belonged to a guy who owes a ton of creditors, so I have to unplug my phone at night so that I'm not woken up at the crack of dawn by said creditors calling.

I have two new kitties. The people in the house behind moved and just abandoned their cats. One is a beautiful Himalayan or something similar with aquamarine eyes, and the other is a short hair, black and white like a Paint horse. I've named them Islay and Skye. Islay is the Himalayan and she's loves to be cuddled and petted, but Skye is timid and won't let me pet her yet.

My brother's getting me a 22 inch LCD computer monitor, which will make it bigger than my TV!

I'm always too warm here. The dry climate is keeping me in my Monterey spring clothes even thought it's 20 odd degrees colder here. I have all the heat vents but one closed in my room.

Nin and I are going to go to Zion on Sat.

Oh, and truck repairs! Remember the nearly $2000 it was going to cost in Monterey? $518 here, all fixed yesterday. How awesome is that?

So, time for me to make dinner and go fetch a glass of wine!

That truck repair difference might include not having to satisfy California Emissions requirements.

Regarding the phone - its nice to be wanted, but not that way.

Nope, this had nothing to do with that part of the car. It was the axles and the brakes.

Yeah, I'm really getting sick of 'Edward and Linda'

Yay for new kitties! How's Norrington taking the, umm, new members of your scurvy crew?

Is the cost of living cheaper there than Monterey, maybe that translates into cheaper car repairs, anyway, I'm glad your truck is fixed and everything is going well.

I had a 22 inch monitor one place I worked, it was great but took some getting used to.

*hugs you*

Edit: You probably know this already, but "Those people are no longer that this number, put me on your 'Do-Not-Call-List' is the best thing, and I think they still have to do it, even if it's in your answering message.

They're still outdoor kitties, so he's only met them through the glass :)

Yeah, labour is waaaaaaaay cheaper here.

There you go - all things happen for a reason. What would have become of those kitties if you hadn't moved in right when you did? :}
Ithithildyn on January 23rd, 2009 10:08 pm (UTC)
Well, my brother was already feeding them. They just get more attention now since my room is the only one with an outside back entrance.

That is fantastic news!!

And, two new kitties!!!

I knew good things were going to happen for ya'll! I'm sure you will find a job YOU LOVE soon! Do what you love to do!!

Nin says she's not going to let me take the first job that comes along just because I feel I have to start NOW! LOL Yeah, I'm like that. Between Nin's check and my savings, we should be okay for a few months.

Ah yes, I remember those feelings well...

My new phone number belonged to a guy who owes a ton of creditors, so I have to unplug my phone at night so that I'm not woken up at the crack of dawn by said creditors calling.

What a pain!

The people in the house behind moved and just abandoned their cats.

That is such DISGUSTING behaviour. People like that really need to be fined. A LOT.

But at least the kitties have you and Nin now. A definite improvement! :)

Bummer on the previous phone number holder's activities. Sort of a lol, though, but what a headache!
Ith: Art - Rodinithildyn on January 23rd, 2009 10:11 pm (UTC)
Seems to have been better today. So hopefully by next week, all will be well again.

Yay! for the good stuff. Internet, cheaper truck repairs, warmer weather and new kitties. Hiss boo for the phone number. I think I would be calling Ma Bell and insisting on a new number.

'Cept I already gave my new number to all my bills/insurance/etc. It's been better today.

It's funny that the weather is actually colder, but I'm warmer.
