That Was Then...

This is now!

Wow, what a difference a couple of weeks makes. I've been busier than busy with work & dog-sitting & training & life. The new place in Thornton?? LOVE IT!  My new housemates? LOVE THEM! The kitties I thought I would be deathly allergic to? Hardly at all!

Life in Thornton is AWESOME!

My housemates are really and truly amazing. I feel so comfortable here not to mention welcome! I won't go into detail out of respect for their privacy, and I wish I could tell you more about them, but for now I'll say they are kind, considerate, loving, hilarious and T is a great cook :-) 

My room is almost double the size of the last room I rented, my bathroom has a huge soaking tub  (last place had no tub), internet connection is blazing fast (not one dropped connection so far!!) and B & I both prefer cooler over hotter.

Also?? HE Washer & Dryer are PHENOMENAL!!  Yay for technology!

I'm off work for the next 3 days and need to put the finishing touches on my room.  Yeah, there will be pix!  And more blogging!

My goal for this summer will be to settle down, slow down, and live each day deliberately and fully.

Happy beginning of Summer 2010 :-)


Goodbye Superior :-(

Last night in Superior :-(

Tomorrow I move to Thornton for a week of house/dog watching. The following week I'll move into the townhome I'll be sharing with a co-worker and his partner.

What I will miss :

Proximity to work, my 2 minute commute, proximity to Boulder and seeing the Flatiron Mountain range up close and personal every morning as I leave the complex. I'll also miss spending $80 a month for gas.

What I won't miss :

The crappier-than-crappy internet (I've been kicked offline 12 times in the last 2 hours), the uneven floors & doors, the single pane windows, freezing in the Winter, sun glaring thru my window every morning at 6 am, dogs that shed massively, fluorescent lighting, mail that never arrives even tho it's addressed correctly.

Other than raising my rent with no warning, I've had a good roommate. It woulda made for a better quality of life if he'd spent more time away from the place, but that was out of my control.

I'll be moving to Thornton until Jan, at which time I'll have to move again. Certainly hope THAT move will be into a house of my own, but I'm open to that not happening.

Moving sucks. Still, I'm remaining hopeful that this move will work out ok, even with cats. Two cats.

NNSD from Superior for the last time. Lots to do, little to pack.

Let's get this party started. In the morning.

:-)
