The Apartment Transition Continues

Well, we finally made it out of the apartment for something other than shopping for furniture for the apartment. Chris and I walked down to the complex's pool, which is a very nice. They have a life guard on duty and plenty of fun apartment residents around to meet. Here's a picture of Chris enjoy pool, despite the fact that it was sprinkling that day.



The building behind the pool is the main office and also houses the fitness center.

In addition to exploring our apartment complex, we finally went to see the new Batman Movie. It was really good. Heath Ledger did an amazing job on the Joker character.

So after spending the last week on our butts--in our awesome new computer chairs--playing WoW and various other computer games, we were blessed with a slight burst of energy and got some more work done on the apartment. We began to hang some things on the wall. Below, you can see our diplomas and the square boxes my mom got us. (Still haven't decided what's going to go in the big one on the right).

Here's me. This is pretty much how I've been all week. I've put two of the chairs together so far, the drawers and cabinet for the storage unit and the pantry shelves. I am quite the handy-woman. (Ok, so there have been a few times Chris has had to step in and bail me out, but for the most part I've done pretty well).

I've even found time to cook us nutritious meals ... ok ... meal. One meal ... and it was Hamburger Helper. lol What can I say? Baby steps, right?

Here's the front of our building.

Chris's dad and stepmom, Lisa, were super nice and brought Chris's dresser from his old room over to us today. We now have two dressers and a night stand in the master bedroom and we still have plenty of room in there. :-)

Chris took his burst of energy and put it toward filling the closet in the guest bedroom. He was able to unpack a lot of the stuff sitting in the room.

As you can see here, the pile of boxes grows smaller. Below are the two units that I pit together last week. They stack together to save space, but they're certainly filling up quickly.

Chris's poster has found a home in our living room. Below it is the box containing two more unassembled chairs and the unassembled table. We figure if we do one chair a day, we're doing good. lol

Here is one of the chairs in assembled form. Nice, huh?

Earlier this week, we went to a store called "American Signature" and picked out our couch, which will be delivered Friday. The next day, we went down to the DMV and got new driver's licenses. Chris was in desperate need of a new picture, and I needed to let New York know that I live here now. Those should arrive in a few weeks. It seems like everything we do gets put on hold for days and weeks for delivery. Oh well ... I guess we'll just have to keep chugging along on assembling the chairs and table for now ...

Hope all is well where you are and that you are enjoying your already-assembled furniture. ;-) lol
