Well, we made it to Raleigh safe and sound. We had to get up at 5 a.m. to give the cats their sedatives and wrangle them into their carriers. The movers were to arrive at noon and it's a 4:15 hr drive from D.C., so we had to get moving quickly. We got everything moved in by mid afternoon and as you can see from the above photo, it looked like a bomb went off. I have no idea what that is on the right side of my chest. Orbs, maybe? A haunted kitchen? Hmmm....
As far as the cats go: Sprinkles has adjusted so incredibly well. And he's done a great job of staying in the yard too, until we get him to the vet. He is loving this house and it's yard and deck. He has so much more room here. He thinks he's died and gone to cat heaven.
As for the other cat, Miss Marble: well, she thinks she's died and gone to hell. She spent the first two days under our bed and wouldn't come out to eat or go potty. Finally today, she came out and I have kept our bedroom door shut forcing her to be social and also get the feel of the house. I don't feel good about letting her out just yet though.
But both cats are LOVING the balcony (walkway thing) over the living room. They sit and watch everything! It's really funny.
We've met a few more of our neighbors. They seem very nice. Two of the ladies that live on the street brought us dinner and breakfast from Fresh Market while we were in total chaos with the kitchen. Then a couple two houses down came by to introduce themselves and invited us to church. Then we met a couple across the street, they are expecting their first child. Then the couple next door brought over some delicious brownies too.
Mark mowed the lawn this afternoon and we have made trips to Lowe's and Target to get numerous odds and ends. Our new fridge is being delivered tomorrow.
Mark is watching the football game and I think I am gonna catch up on last week's episode of Army Wives.
