Comments First Day
First Day: 7/22/04Sean and I arrived at our new home after an hour of grocery shopping. Normally it would have taken half that time but it's a new store to me and I was very tired. Ian, even more exhausted than I was, had forgotten some key pieces for cooking dinner. By the time we got home, it was really too late to go out again. Plus I don't think either of us were up to it. So Sean had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for dinner. After he went to bed, we ordered pizza.
Although there's all the chaos of boxes and the remodeling projects upstairs, the place already feels like home. Ian got the basics of each room set up. Everything will be wonderful once we're unpacked and our projects are finished. We're looking forward to showing the place off to Ian's folks who are now back home from their trip to China, Cambodia and Thailand.
Sean, as predicted, didn't like the bathtub because of the sliding doors. One of the doors is broken so we'll probably end up taking the doors down. He was also put off by the futon bed but eventually decided it was an acceptable bed. Ian let him play with his light up wrist watch and that was enough of a distraction for Sean to settle down and go to sleep.
Caligula seems to love the place. There are lots of places to hide and explore and good spots to stretch out to catch a breeze or some sunlight.
The commute in across the bridge was easy. It will be even easier if we ever get our fastrak transponders. There's a month long back log so we just have to wait for them to arrive.
