He sent me flowers!

My boyfriend left me. For California. In an attempt to buy my love back, he sent me flowers.

When I got home from work the other night, there was a box sitting at my front door. Inside was a special present from

Pretty pretty Liberty of London (that isn't in the form of boxers). Okay, I forgive you for now, Jacob. How could I not?!

I think someone else forgive you, too. She loved the tissue paper you sent especially for her!

Boxes are starting to clear out of here!

The kitchen is unpacked. I can see the counter tops. And I have made my first batch of mac & cheese!

Living room furniture is where I want it to be. There are just a few boxes tucked into the corner. I'll ignore them for a while longer.
Bedroom 1 is still pretty messy. Thank goodness for a huge closet so I can stuff everything in there & close the doors for a while until I'm ready to tackle it.

Bedroom 2 belongs to the cats right now. Jacob's furniture is still at his place & will stay there until I have a truck & the muscles to move it.

Bathroom is small. Not much I can do to put anything away in there! I'm thinking about getting one of those bathroom shelving units, but so far I have done a great job of not buying things specifically for the apartment. I want to wait until things are all put away. Then I can think about it...
As a reward for all my hard work, I bought myself some flowers last night!

The cats haven't even messed with them yet! They are calming down a bit. But I think Jackson is trying to take dominance of the household from Seaton. There have been quite a few skirmishes between the two & Jackson seems to be coming out on top!

Where have I been?

Oh, life is fun. It has been so ridiculous the past several weeks. Birthdays. Jacob coming & going & coming & going again & trying to sneak some quality time in with him here & there.

Finally visiting the Konza barn & bison herds with Jacob & visiting family.

Packing boxes & moving boxes & unpacking boxes. Not sleeping. Working.

Not only have I not been able to sew lately, I don't even know where most of my sewing projects are! Eventually I will get back to all that fabric I bought for my birthday. I have some great projects planned!

Luckily, I had some great help from some great family & friends. Whether visiting, helping me move, or letting me stay for the weekend, you all have been great!
