I am a Silly Girl with an apartment

Here is one set of boxes.

I GOT THE APARTMENT!!!! I signed the lease on Thursday. I celebrated with Italian food with D. On Friday, I had eight teeth removed as part of OPERATION SMILE. They gave me some good drugs. It will take about awhile but one day, my smile will return/

For the most part, my room is pretty much packed. There are a few odds and ends left. I still have to get the utilities turned on but I have an apartment. It is two bedrooms and one bath of lovely. I fell in love with the kitchen. My mouth is a little sore because of the stitches but I am happy. Things are starting to come together.

More boxes!
Since I have lived in a motel for a year, I will be starting from scratch. No furniture. I don't even have a pillow. Folks at the paper have been looking through their homes and giving me things. D said it is all the good karma I have given out to others and its coming back. I plan to thank everyone by having a housewarming early next year. I will start the new year off in a new place with a new attitude.

And now, I am going to make me some garlic mash potatoes as a snack. Good tidings to all!

  1. Congratulations on the apartment! I moved into a new place a few months ago, and it's really amazing how much of a difference being somewhere new can make.

    And thank you for your comment...the thought of the group kind of scares me. I know it will be good for me, in the long run, but for the first little while it will probably be really overwhelming. It feels like when your room is really really messy and the only way to clean it up is to make the mess worse for a little while, and you dread it because of that...if that makes any sense.

  2. Thanks for the comment on my post!!!!! I just found your blog and will continue to read!!!!! Stay strong and positive!!!

  3. yippee!! I am so excited for you and the apartment! I know it's got to feel so good to get out of the motel and know that you have a place to finally call your own.

    LOTS of hugs from me to you! :)

    (ps, I just wanted to let you know that I am back to bogging after being away for a bit and deleting my old blog but my new one is

  4. Congratulations!!! Enjoy - it sounds like your new life is coming together. I am very proud of you!

  5. congradulations! enjoy the new home!

  6. so cool you got an apartment! having a place of your own is huge and it really does make you feel differently about life in general.

  7. I hope you enjoy your new apartment! I hope you have a lot of fun with it! Moving always is a great chance to declutter, too.

    Wow, sexy new boots!

    Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting!

  8. I came across your blog forever ago... and for some reason, clicked on it again in the wee hours, now. When my husband and I moved. GOOD WILL was our best friend! We bought a set for two and a coffee maker that lasted us over a year. Best of luck w/ your new place. It's always so nice to have a place YOU make a home.
