After all that time spent going a little more than mad sitting in that hotel room day in and out-- I can finally call Carlsbad, NM home sweet home!
We have been living in the new place for a little over 2 weeks now, one of which was spent without our possessions, the other week finally receiving them but then also finding work so that the process of unpacking has become super slow...
The good news is that we're finally home, I have work, and the kittles have settled in just fine-- Poe took a little longer than Khan... as is apparent by this (blurry-ish) picture:
I had only just put down the cat bed during the first day of getting the keys... Khan is stoic, that's all I can say.
Poe on the other hand, took his time feeling at home, but we didn't help his mood much once our things arrived...
He's so freakin' adorable, even when he is casting his death glare. No, Poe, I will not burn this costume...ever!
The best thing about this house aside from the fact that we have a giant backyard, double the square footage and a pimped out kitchen? We get a game room and I get my craft room! Squee!
|Before the arrival of my things|
I think perhaps it was the hotel that gave us perspective on that... living so minimally and all. Thankfully that is over-- I like my decadence, and I love my crafts, I love being able to sit down and pick a movie out of our hundreds or just spend that time gaming, leveling my paragon on Diablo 3 or some other game.
There was one good thing that came from being in the hotel for so long. I did draw quite a bit.
I think this tattoo concept might actually be the first one I get. After I had finished, I gave myself a jolly good pat on the back. There's just something about raw lines that makes my heart flutter. I'm thinking my forearm might be a good place for this one.
Like I mentioned, I do have a job-- I worked at the local grocers as a cashier... it's tough work, and there's so much to lift and remember. It gives you quite a physical and mental work out, though it does become second nature very quickly for how repetitive it is. Thankfully, the owner of a fabric store called me back just a few days ago offering roughly the same pay and hours! I am so freakin' elated to have landed a fabric store job... words fail to express the happiness I feel for having landed such a perfect job.
That's about all the related news I can think of... but there's so much more to update on, but it deals in different topics. It's good to finally get back to blogging!.
