After a long, hot (it was 104 today), exhausting day of moving things that are WAY too heavy, using muscles I didn't know I had . . . .
We're are officially living in our brand new apartment!
Loving the new carpet/resurfaced countertop smell. bleh
For Chapterhouse Lane fans, forgive me, the post is going up shortly. As aforementioned-- it has been a busy day.

For non-Chapterhouse Lane fans-- I hope you will soon change your ways and come to the light. The view is spectacular.
Quick and terrible story about our adventures today:
Our stuff has been sitting in a garage for the last year and a half, since we were living in my aunt and uncle's fully furnished home.
As we're unpacking kitchen stuff, my mom hands me my great big stew-pot, and crawling around inside is an alive and well
As in, the grand-pappy of all nasty arachnids. DIS.GUST.ING!!! I live in Arizona, I know we have scorpions. But that did not stop me from screaming like a little girl and dropping the pot on the just-newly finished surface of the countertop, upon which we weren't supposed to put anything until tomorrow morning.
There are scuffs in the finish. Just small ones.
And a dead scorpion somewhere far away from my apartment. Courtesy of my much braver, much bigger younger brother. (Bret was gone hauling furniture).
Shhhhuuuuuddddeeeerrr. I hope there aren't any more. Scorpions, that is.
So, I've got a story blog to update and a butt-load of boxes to unpack, so I gotta run.
Pictures to follow.
